not your buddy

i am not quite sure what to write right now. I am way tired. 
however, if i don't take this time to type this, then i never will, so i must while i am thinking about it. this is an article that a very dear friend of mine sent me and a few others last week. 
i thought it was definitely interesting and worth sharing ... it touches on some big issues among 
the whole dating vs. friends thing in today's current christian culture, if you will.

i would love to know your thoughts, so please share.

certified organic

i know. im a big dork. 
its okay. i like organic food and computers. 
i accept it. i relish in my state. 

i am not a die hard organic fan, mostly because i cant afford it. 
but i do always buy organic dairy and poultry (sorry, i like it better than meat).

today i had organic peanut butter on a rice cake. 
and i noticed something:

this organic peanut butter apparently lacks the ingredient 
that normal peanut butter has in it to keep it from sticking to your mouth/teeth. 
i mean, i could hardly swallow this stuff. took a huge glass of milk to get it down. 

oh, and speaking of milk. 
i heard this week that horizon milk is not really organic, 
so its better to get stoneyfield farm's ... they say. 

thats all i got.

New Music Tuesdays.

I live for new music tuesdays. 
Well, not really. 
I don't have money anymore. 
Not that I ever did. 
But now? Now I really don't. 

However, Today is a peculiar new music tuesday. 

Why? Because:

1. Bebo Norman released his new album with a song called Britney, 
and yes, it is about my fellow head shaving friend (?) ... Miss Spears. 
"Britney is a song about what our culture says and does to young women 
these days," explains Norman. "It's about the lies we tell them about fame and money and what's beautiful and what will give them lie. It's an apology for those lies. But more than that, it's an invitation to the truth about a God who is bigger than the pain this world so often leaves them in." 

I was going to put a link to the video here, but apparently I am dumb and my computer won't let me and I don't know how to make it let me. 

2. Kristy Lee C(r)ook released her album today with a most fitting first track title of:
15 minutes of Shame. I won't describe the album cover, there are no words, just check it 
out here...

3. Finally, Leona Naess released her newest album today. I am so excited. For those of you who do not know her, she is an amazing singer-songwriter based in London and NY ... often compared to Feist (who is brilliant). Anyways, you should check out her new album. She is on tour with Ray La this fall. It does not get much better than that, folks. 

4. Death Cab released their live from las vegas EP ... you should ALWAYS check out death cab. DUH. 

5. I must not forget. This past weekend was an amazing time in Nashville for the NEXT BIG NASHVILLE music festival. I had an amazing time catching some amazing shows with friends, and I do mean amazing. If you do not know about Katie Herzig yet, then you are missing out on life. Her new album, the Apple Tree, its a must ... do not even listen to a 30 second clip, just freakin buy it. You will n
ot regret it.

awaiting the changing colors of leaves among other many things

i am not writing much in this blog. i do not have much to say.
however, a picture is worth a thousand words, so i am including many to tell you/show you things i am looking forward to.

as much as i am addicted to summer, i absolutely love fall. it is perhaps the most nostalgic, most inspiring, and coziest of all seasons. it is beautiful and mysterious.

i cannot wait for cool days in the park, curled up in blankets with a pumpkin spice latte and a good book. to be surrounded by a myriad of colors. i cannot wait.

fall of 2006 was when i fell in love with nashville. it is absolutely gorgeous here in autumn, and i am so excited about living here for it this time and not just driving back and forth for tease visits like years past.

here are some pictures to show you why i love it.
