Something just for me! A gorgeous pair of polaroid earrings with sailboats on them! Hmm I wonder if the Easter Bunny is reading this post?

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the giveaway! I want to apologize for not getting this up sooner but we adopted a dog yesterday and I got a little side tracked. 

Here's a quick photo of our new pup. 

She's a five year old Chihuahua named Olivia (Olive for short). You can see why I was side tracked yesterday! 

Ok, time for the big announcement! 

Congratulations to ANGIE!! You are the winner!!

CD Giveaway!

When you find something beautiful share it with the world! That's what I'm about to do, and one of my lucky fans is going to win a great prize.

Gorgeous stage set up! 

I love music, all kinds of music, but what really gets me going is finding music that comes from someone else's soul and meshes with mine. Such an amazing thing! Last summer I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Anna Johnson perform at a local coffee house. I had heard a few of her songs via Facebook which I enjoyed but after hearing her live I was a smitten kitten. She is a very talented songwriter with an amazing voice, not to mention a total sweetheart! Anna plays the acoustic guitar and sings along side her sister Julia (violin/back up vocals), her husband David (classical guitar), her drummer Chris and base guitarist Jason. 

Making beautiful music!

Last Thursday I saw her live again at her cd release party! I had invited my mother-in-law and mother to attend the show with me and we scored front row seats. She sang some of my favorites like "This Love is Crazy" and "The Old Folks Song" along with a few that I hadn't heard before like "Inspiration" and "Road". 

Goofing around after the show! 

When the show was over we purchases 4 cd's and I had 1 of them signed by the entire band! Guess what? One of you will win it! That's right, I'm giving away an autographed copy of her newest album, Winding Road! 

Here's how to enter for your chance to win an autographed copy of her new cd, Winding Road.
