If you know me you know I have a girl crush on Grace Potter. She is sex. I got my husband into her music too and he actually discovered this song before I did… go figure. In the past week he’s made me listen to it like, no joke, 50 times. So I figured it was only appropriate to share with you guys. This is a very different song from her usual tunes, kind of 80’s. I dig it though, and so will you. Check it out! Enjoy. :] xo
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals – Never Go Back
Why, hello there! Welcome back to the blog child I keep abandoning. Sorry for the disappearing acts lately, I have had mucho on my plate, but I promise within the next few weeks everyone will be all caught up.
I have posted a #Tunesday for the day, so head on over to that section of the blog and check it out. Incubus has been my saving grace these past two days. Too often I forget about how in love I am with certain bands until my iPod decides to dig them up. Therefor, I have rekindled my love affair with Incubus so get your ears ready.
Anywho. As you may notice, I added a section to the “quotes” entitled “Mitch Albom.” When I was a freshman in college I lost a very dear friend. It was the first loss I have ever experienced outside of my family. And to be honest, even up to that point I hadn’t lost any really, really close family aside from my Great Grandmother, so this was really hard for me. I wasn’t sure quite how to cope with it, I got kind of weird. One day my dad came home and handed me a gift wrapped package. It had happened right before my birthday so I assumed it was a birthday present. I unwrapped it and there were 3 books inside; Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and For One More Day. All my dad said was, “You know….. to help you cope.” And that was that. I cried a lot, and was very confused as to why my father would give me such a depressing birthday present. I think I may have even gotten a little mad at him, but in the long run it did exactly what he said it would; it helped me cope. I constantly refer back to those books when I feel sad and the powerful messages within them help me feel better. I highly suggest that anyone who is struggling to cope with anything in their lives read these books. Even if you have already, read them again. It’s worth it. I added this section to my blog so you can check out his quotes when you need a little inspiration, much like I do. There’s even one on my facebook page as we speak. :] So check it out. And enjoy. xo

I’ve abandoned you guys again, many apologies! I cut out early last week and headed out to Boston and Salem for the weekend with our dear friends Alex & Francesca. The trip was a blast! I am going to post about it later this week with some fun pictures. If you haven’t had the chance to visit Boston or Salem in your life, I highly recommend it. Especially around Halloween time for Salem. It’s a truly magical place, I loved it.
Anyway! Moving on. I’m doing another spotlight this week for #Tunesday. I think I used one of her songs last week, but I want you guys to get a full taste of Grace Potter. I first saw her on VH1’s You Oughta Know one morning watching early morning music videos. That’s where I discovered Paris (Ooh La La) and I was quite happy. We’re always kind of digging for new music to listen to that doesn’t make our ears bleed, and this hit the spot! I keep missing the opportunity to see Grace Potter live, so let’s all sit and watch her video for “Big White Gate” which was written for her Grandmother… aw. This is my favorite song of her’s & it will be like we’re all watching it live. ;] So enjoy! let me know what you think.
