Relaxing Weekend | Mother's Day 2013

On Repeat.

H Currently Music

I made this little 4x6 insert to place in my Project Life, which I'm up to Week 16.. Not bad for being on Week 19. Even though I'm a few weeks behind, pictures are organized and printed, it's just a matter of putting them in the album and journaling. Why is journaling the thing that takes up more time. But I've been failing at taking photos for the past few weeks. I tried to bring out the "Big" camera, but with no luck, I only took a few photos. I think I need to play with some Polaroids to boost up my creativity.

So.. Emeli Sande has been forever on repeat for the past couple months! In fact I'm listening to it right now. And it's not one song, it's all of it! I have to say her album is up there with Adele. I remember when I could not, would not, stop listening to Adele. I bought ALL her albums and every LIVE album she had. I mean for a few months, I thought I was Adele walking around with my British Accent.  But as with every album, I do have a few faves that make me turn it all the way up and use my wooden mixing spoon as a mic. Besides the obvious, that's hitting the charts now, "Next To Me.." You'll discover a few that hasn't been released yet.

  • "Daddy"
    Put it in your pocket don't tell anyone I gave ya
    It can be the one you run to, the one that saves ya
    It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
    Daddy daddy...

  • "Suitcase"
    What changed so quickly?
    Answer me! If you must kill me then please,please tell me why.
    My baby's got a suitcase
    He's telling me its too late
    But don't nobody, please don't ask me why
    'Cause all I did was love him
    But I can't stop him walking
  • "Breaking The Law" (prob one of my faves!)
    When you need to smile
    But you can't afford it
    Go on point it out
    I'm gonna steal it
    When the floor is more familiar than the ceiling
    I will break in late at night
    Shake up how you're feeling
    I'll never stop
    Breaking the law for you
    I'll never stop
    Helping to pull you through
    Whatever it takes it get what you need
    Ignore the alarm
    Ignore the police
    I'll never stop
    Breaking the law for you

  • "Tiger"
    Hey there honey,
    You came along and stopped me running,
    I’m feeling like me, back on my feet,
    I’m a tiger again.
    Tattoos on our arms so everybody can see,
    If they’re messing with you then they’re messing with me,
    They think we’re crazy, crazy and blind,
    But if I can see you then the rest I don’t mind,
    If you’re sticking around.
    Oh, are you sticking around?

And JT..
Well did you see him perform this song on Ellen? Nuff said! When I first heard this song back in February.. It sent chills down my body.. and today, 3 months later, it still gives me chills... even more so, live.

 And not to mention the video was pure genius! I love when I see videos that are portrayed like how I would envision them in my head.


Just know that I’m always
Parallel on the other side

Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the past
I’m here tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making
Two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me
