strawberries and chocolate

I have no musical ability.

No, no. You don’t need to disagree. I’m still happy to sing out loud whenever I choose and my tonal deficiency doesn’t bother me in the least. But, I’m not much use in helping my children practice their instruments, and I’m still recovering from my 5 year stint as an aerobics instructor(I quit when Hans was a baby) because I CANNOT get the beat.

So, I relish my role as a fan of all things musical. I don’t have the ear to be a critic, but I can hear beauty. My playlist holds everything from country/dance/international/Mormon Tab choir/folk and more. And today, I am especially in love with Jon Schmidt’s interpretation of Coldplay’s Viva la Vida and Taylor Swift’s Love Song– an inspired combination.

Thanks Claudia!

    I knew you and your crew would like that!

    Two more songs to add to your i-pod (which you probably already have)

    Backwards by Rascal Flatts (a song dedicated to your crashed computer)

    Crazier by Taylor Swift (dedicated to any Taylor S. fan at your house;)
