My little bitty

I've been loving and dreaming of my own area to plant for years and years now. Finally(!) I get to start! Here are the beginnings... Lots 'o succulents, lavender, grasses and sunflowers are loving on the sun as much as I have been lately. I'll be sure to update when the flowers bloom big and when the dirt finds itself a new home under my fingernails forever and ever.

More Succulove Here

Born Country

Big realization/confession to make. I am succumbing to my love for country music. I've always admitted love for the old stuff like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, but I am coming out with my adoration for the new(ish) stuff as well. Right here. Right now.

I blame my iPhone.

The iPhone was supposed to replace all the CDs that were taking over my car and broken phone. Too lazy to pick out music before driving for 5 minutes, I let the radio entertain me. First found a hip hop station (another guilty pleasure) which was fun and nice, but after hearing Beyonce's "Single Ladies" 50 times, I searched for anything else. Then from somewhere really sweet came the song "Waitin' on a Woman" by someone I'm too embarassed to mention (okayitsbradpaisley-andthevideoissuperdupercheesysoiwontevenbotherlinkingtoit). The song's about two dudes who meet at the mall on a bench, waiting for their ladies. The older man starts telling the story of his life with his wife and how he's always waiting for her, but how he doesn't mind 'waiting on a woman'. Then I heard "Chattahoochee" and "Love Without End" and I was in. Again. Like I was in 1990 when I took country line dancing lessons to "Boot Scootin' Boogie".

In my defense it isn't really the music to these songs that I think is so brilliant. It's the stories they tell. They're such good storytellers! And the stories are easy to pick digging or analyzing or is what it is and thats what it is. Which is really nice sometimes.

So there you are. I'm clean. Well, I also know the dance to "Soulja Boy". That's it though. For real. I still like other stuff, too. I'm just diversifying!
