My new form of absolute torture is finding songs about children and listening them on repeat.

And this one, like I can’t even. Can’t. Do. It. Must. Stop.

So beautiful and so gut wrenching right now as I struggle each night to leave Audrey in her room, willing her to sleep, but secretly wishing she stays awake so I can be with her a few minutes longer.

Oh please Jesus, I pray that those “armies of angels” surround Audrey every moment that I’m not with her.



Weekend in Review

Whew! What a weekend.

During a weekend where I should have been writing my thesis, writing my media law paper, finalizing my public opinion survey, designing invitations, reading three books, designing logos and websites for two clients and working on a marketing plan….I instead:

– went to a concert, had dinner with Jason, went to a birthday party, watched football ALL day, watched two movies, slept late and ate sushi.

I know you’re thinking…”But Stephanie, those lists are completely opposite from each other.” And yes, I agree, but it was a wonderful weekend (even though I’m playing catch up now).

The main highlight was Friday night concert: Patty Griffin. Some of you may have never heard of Patty Griffin, but I discovered her in college during the “months of which we do not speak” aka mine and Jason’s breakup. And have loved her ever since.

Here is probably one of her more famous songs:

It was a GREAT concert at Manship Theatre. I would also recommend downloading “Let Him Fly,” which she didn’t song (sadface), but is my favorite of hers.

Jason was a great sport to come along to what I described as “Alanis Morissette, Jewel and Joni Mitchell had a baby, and that baby is Patty Griffin.” Probably not his typical style of music, but a good husband nonetheless to come along 🙂

Memory Lane

Mine and Jason’s second year wedding anniversary is quickly approaching on May 1. So we’ve been a little nostalgic over the last few days thinking back over the 10 years we’ve known each other. *cheesy grin*

But, what is really coincidental and neat is that LSU recently dedicated the opening of a new $10 million Tiger Band hall, almost 9 years to the day that Jason and I met. Now, while me and Jason didn’t meet in Tiger Band, per se, we met through the band. And got to experience a year of being in the band together, which was a once in a lifetime opportunity. LSU’s Golden Band from Tigerland holds a special place in our heart, and we have tons of memorabilia that goes along with that: a uniform hat, raincoat, gloves, ropes, beautiful painting by a Louisiana artist and all our sheet music, which one day I will turn into artwork itself. All very special memories for us.

So, I stumbled upon a video that made me smile, remembering our band days. I hope you enjoy my trip down memory lane (probably the first in a whole lot of lanes this week!):
