Embarrassing Song Confession

I have an confession.
I am addicted to the song "Forget You" by Ceelo Green.
I know, what you are thinking.
There is a lot of controversy around this song,
but I don't care.
The edited version is so much fun,
and the video reminds me of MoTown era,
which I am in love with.

I recently discovered this cover of "Forget You",
and it is marvelous.
Paulina is adorable.

Hold Me

I randomly heard this song on the Christian radio station the other day.
I almost flipped the station, 
but this song by Jamie Grace got my attention.

It is so sweet and bubbly.
I love it!

Oo, I love the way You hold me,
You take each and everyday, make it special in some way
I love You more than the words in my brain can express
I can't imagine even loving You less
Lord, I love the way You hold me
Whoa whoa

Eat. Pray. Love.

I don't typically re-post similar content on both of my blogs, but I felt like this post applied in this blog as well as my Coffee, Culture, & Community blog.

This past weekend, I watched the movie Eat. Pray. Love. with Travis and his momma. I love the essence of this movie--a woman's journey to find herself amongst people who are very different than her. I admit though that I dislike her motives to take the journey. I could not get over that she left her husband just because she didn't want to be married anymore--it was a tad selfish. It worked out for her in the end, though.

Watching the movie fed my adventure bug in a crazy way all over again. I love how she experienced Italy, India, and Bali with local people--seeing the realness of that country.

It got me thinking if I could pick my Eat. Pray. Love. countries, what would they be?

After a lot of pondering, I made my list and I wanted to share it with you:

  • First, I would go to Morocco. I LOVE Moroccan culture. It is such a hub of so many other cultures such as Spain, France, Arab, and Africa.
  • Second, I would go to India (like the movie, I know), but it is such a colorful place. There is really no other culture like it. Ever since 3rd grade, my friend Brit and I decided we wanted to go to India because it sounded cool in history class. That thought has never let only deepened by things like Slumdog Millionaire (I heart that movie!).
  • Last, I would go to Australia. I have no particular reason for the last one other than I enjoy learning about the struggle with the lost generation of aboriginals. I would love to learn more about that first hand, and the wildlife is amazing.

So those are my Eat. Pray. Love countries, 

What are YOURS? :)

My First Valentine

Today is the day all about love.
This is probably one of my favorite holidays.
Many might scoff & say I like
because I HAVE a Valentine,
but this holiday is so much more than that.

It is about celebrating love
loving where you are right now,
and treasuring those close to you.

A little girl reminded of me tonight
when she walked into the coffee shop
with her daddy.

My heart stopped,
and my mind drifted to all the Daddy Daughter dates 
I used to go on with my father.

I have always been a Daddy's girl.
He was my first Valentine.
