A Song in Your Sails

24 Aug

Let’s see if you can resist the song (and might I suggest not even trying to).

Tulip FestivalI’m so glad my friend Nate posted this on Facebook yesterday. It made me all kinds of happy. Nothing is so pressing that you can’t take three minutes to watch this.

And what a great GREAT message, not just for kids, but for all of us.

May All Your Days Be Gold

13 Jan

I heard this song in the car the other day on KEXP. It reminded me of my recent manifesto to start every day cuddling with my baby.

If you’re in the mood for a feel-good tune, this is well worth a listen.

“In silver piles of smiles,/May all your days be gold, my child … ”
