I Go Downtown

Goodbye April, my very favorite month of the year. I was born in April, I got married in April. I saw my sweet sweet baby for the very first time in April (a teeny tiny speck on an ultrasound screen but proof of her existence nonetheless). You've always been good to me April, looking forward to seeing you again next year.

More Than I Could Ever Promise

If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.
Cause I love the way you say good morning.
And you take me the way I am.
If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.
Cause I love the way you call me baby.
And you take me the way I am.
I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.
Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.

It's like Ingrid just ripped the words right outta my heart, I tell ya!

Jumpin' Jesus Holy Cow

Happy 3.0 to my sweet hubby. I would meet him at the court house on casual Friday all over again, Winter summer, day or night, centigrade or fahrenheit.

It's Scary Business

I'm surprised by one of the things I miss from my Nashville years,,,Writers in the Round. Then I remember that for every really awesome song and story, there were at least 10 awful songs and stories that were unbelievably bad. But there were many really good writers. I'm still very grateful that I have zero musical talent because that business is brutal.

All three of these guys did at least one show at Cafe Milano. I had a HUGE crush on Radney Foster. And this is one of my favorite songs ever.

Everything Delightful

Happy Earth Day everyone! I always like to take some time to consider how to reduce my carbon footprint on Earth Day. I've made a few small changes that at least make me feel like I'm making a difference. Last year I stopped using paper towels to clean my house, I use newspaper from our recycling bin to clean mirrors and windows then sponges, brushes and microfiber towels for everything else. Not sure what I'm going to try this year but I plan to hop over to to recalculate my footprint.

And here's a favorite that is sure to make you feel like an old school hippie living out on The Farm.

Cut Out The Middleman

Spoon is one of those bands that reminds me of the wonder filled days of working in a record store (I think I was still working at The Sound Shop when I first heard them). Yeah, their latest album is seriously amazing but Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga and Transference were just awesome. I knew this band way back when people, like almost 20 years ago. That proves I was really truly cool, right?

Whatever man, here's a little Spoon...

That's Some Funky Lemonade

If you ever needed proof, I mean 100% proof that I am older than it goes...

The LL Bean catalog, I can find something I like on almost every page. And I love their swim suits.

Your baby ain't that sweet.

A Fallen Angel Who Visits Your Dreams

If I could give advice to single women in their twenties and thirties, I would have a TON of things to say. But a biggie would be "Don't waste your time on someone who is just incapable of loving you. Every minute you waste with the wrong person is a minute you lose with the right one."

This could very well be the saddest song in the world. If you ever get a chance to see Jill Sobule live, just do it. Amazing! She is amazing.

Ain't Gonna Double Back

All last week, I felt old, so old it deserves all caps OLD. But this song takes me back to high school and summer sun and cruising around in a convertible Jeep. And just for a minute, if I close my eyes really tight, I feel 17.

Feel better Joni! Like most girls from the past 3 generations, I feel like I know you or at least like you know me.
