I recently read several quotes from Les Miserables, which is currently out in theatres and winner of several awards. My daughter said after seeing it that “they sing everything!” I don’t think she was totally impressed. While I haven’t seen the production, the quote from Victor Hugo that really struck me was “He did […] Read more »

In one of my end of the year retrospective moments, I downloaded a series of reflective questions from a blogger I follow. You know the kind.

I had the chance to get away with my teenage daughter a couple of weeks ago. We took a road trip to Nashville just the two of us. I highly recommend getting away with your daughter by yourself!

Music is a big part of our lives. Most of us have those songs that trigger memories of a certain event or place from the past. All the emotion and memories come flooding back. The words, the melody, the beat just connect deep down with us. I don’t think you have to be incredibly gifted […] Read more »

I took my daughter and a friend to Atlanta to attend “the” concert of the summer, complete with stalking the band members. Well stalking may be […] Read more »
