Songs to pep you up – Music Monday

Another week, another Music Monday. This is one of my favourites to do each week and I hope that you are finding some new songs to jam to. I'm going to be honest and say that I'm feeling a bit draggy today. I'm recovering from bronchitis (yay), I'm nervous about my upcoming surgery and nerve block, and all that good stuff. So today my goal was just to find some songs that perk me up and hope that … [Read more...]

Songs to get you moving – Music Monday

Happy Monday friends! I know I haven't done Music Monday for a few weeks, but it's 2016 and I don't think that anyone should have to face a new week without some awesome tunes to get you through, so I'm starting it up again. This week I wanted to feature some tunes that get us all pumped up and moving, in the hopes that they will do the same for you. There are few things funner than a spontaneous … [Read more...]

Welcome to My Music Mondays

I think that I have been a music lover my whole life. From really early memories of everything from KISS to the Captain and Tenille ( anyone else remember Muskrat Love? Sing it with me now - "Muskrat Suzie, Muskrat Sam...". Wait, just me? Ummmm...) music has filled my mind and my memories forever. I love to listen to it, I love to sing it, and is used to love to play it. I have it on pretty much … [Read more...]

Ed Sheeran live in Vancouver – easily one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen

A couple days ago, my mom and I went to see Ed Sheeran live in concert. We have been eagerly looking forward to this show for months, and he absolutely did not disappoint. I have adored Ed Sheeran's music since the very first time I heard "the a Team" probably three or so years ago. There is something about his voice, his words and the way it all comes together with his guitar strumming that … [Read more...]
