About Me

I am a wife and mom who has Martha Stewart aspirations and gets stuff done with the grace of Lucille Ball. I would love you to join me on my journey and maybe have some laughs along the way.

The Hot Mess Life

February 04, 2010


I know, it's a very wide subject which can be taken in several directions, so just bear with me.  I have always loved music, ever since I was young and listened to oldies with my dad in the car.  I was always the girl who knew all the words to all the songs (old or new).  I sang (and still do) sing along to every song that comes on the radio, much to dismay of my friends.  I'm not saying because my voice is so bad, but it just gets annoying really when you are wanting to listen to a song and there is always someone else singing along.

Also, ever since I could remember I played some sort of musical instrument or sang in a choir of some sort.  I started piano when I was in the 4th grade when we lived in Korea.  My lessons were M-F and Saturday mornings.  I still love to play to this day, unfortunately I only have a keyboard which is soooo not the same as playing on a real piano.  I have also played the flute for a few years, and now I am learning guitar.  I also have sung in choirs for most my life and have done the vocal competitions and voice lessons.  The reason I am writing about this is because I heard a song the other day that just brought back some memories, which made me start to think about the power that music has over our society.  (Yes, I can be philosophical as well.) It also made me start to think about how music can put people in a good mood or make you think about a low point in life.  I always am amazed at the healing power of music.  Whether it be after a horrible break up, it can make you look back at your relationship, help you break it down, and then build you back up even stronger than you were before. It can help you relax after a stressful day or get you pumped up for a game or event.  Thinking of all this, just made me realize how much I love music, how much I STILL love music, and how my tastes keep growing and how much more appreciative of music I have become.
Really, there is no point to this post, just some babble that I felt I wanted to put into words.  I hope whoever reads this rediscovers or discovers their love of music.
