Give It Up for the "L" Word

Valentine's Day is tomorrow. Be prepared for the flurry of hearts, candy, flowers, kisses, and blah blah blah blah. Just kidding. I know you may not guess it, but I love Valentine's Day. Even when I don't have a special sugar to spend it with (which I usually don't), I still love the idea behind it all, because it's all about the love.

A couple of random thoughts on this Valentine's Eve...

I was on this morning and there was an "article" about Carrie Underwood saying she's "Anti-Valentine's Day" because she wants a man who will love her "365 days of the year, not just one." I have one thing to say to that: Duh, girl.

Last night, we watched
"Vicky, Christina, Barcelona" and there was a part in the movie where the smoldering Javier tells Vicky about his father's poetry. His father writes beautiful Spanish poems but refuses to publish them as a way to punish the world for not knowing (or not choosing) to love. All I can think is shame on us.

When it comes to love, our hearts and feelings are going to get beat up once in a while. But I have come to learn, through much trial and error, it's okay. My hearts going to be fine. And no matter what, it's going to keep loving. Because that is what it's all about.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go and make a card for my sugar. (Yep, you read that right!)

Happy Day. Love. Always.

New Song - HAPPY

Fun news: I recorded a new song a couple of weeks ago for a CD collaboration with a bunch of super talented Missoula-based musicians. The CD was recorded on behalf of Lake Missoula Cellars and will be released in a few weeks...Woo! Basically, it's the best musicians in Missoula bringing their A game. Truly awesome and inspiring.

Take a listen to the new song "Happy" at Let me know what you think.
