Music Monday–This is Me

  Last week, I was at the Younique Convention in San Antonio, Texas. For those that don't know, I also run a side business selling makeup. I arrived at the convention exhausted and broken down. 2018 has been a very rough year for me with two moves in six months. I was having to put … Continue reading Music Monday–This is Me

Music Monday- Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire is a well-loved classic. My final line from Thursday's Jealous Desire short story made me think of the song. I've included a video of Johnny Cash's original rendition as well as one done by an acapella group, Home Free. My husband is one of their biggest fans so I couldn't miss … Continue reading Music Monday- Ring of Fire

Music Monday- The Difference

I've been married for almost 14 years and with my husband for 15. I don't envy those that have to navigate the waters of beginning a new relationship. I do recall, however, how difficult it was to read someone. Are they interested? Are you coming in too strong? Not strong enough? Before my husband ever … Continue reading Music Monday- The Difference

Music Monday- Girl Crush

When I was making plans for this week's theme on the blog, it popped in my head as the perfect way to encapsulate Caroline Bingley's envy for Elizabeth … Continue reading Music Monday- Girl Crush

Music Monday- Friends Don’t

It's Monday, so you know that means Music Monday! Each Monday, I post the lyrics and video to a song that serves as inspiration for later in the week. I will try to match my Wordless Wednesday and Thursday Three Hundred posts to the song. Maddie and Tae's song "Friends Don't" is just begging for … Continue reading Music Monday- Friends Don’t

Music Monday- Mercy

I first heard this song a few weeks ago and it's been haunting me ever since. Just sooo much emotion. And it's a tear jerker. Not safe for listening if you're emotionally vulnerable or aren't willing to cry. It's the first time I really considered how hurtful some women can be during break ups. I … Continue reading Music Monday- Mercy

Music Monday- Just to See You Smile

This song came on the radio the other day and it made me think of Mr. Darcy. Couldn't you see him just doing anything to make Elizabeth happy and smile--even if it means seeing her with another man? This was certainly something the Mr. Darcy in my book, The Secrets of Pemberley had to live … Continue reading Music Monday- Just to See You Smile
