Remind Yourself Not to Text While Driving with #RedThumb

Join the #RedThumb Movement and Help Stop Texting and Driving Texting while driving is dangerous. We’ve all heard it many many times and some of you still do it. When Nissan asked if I’d like to participate in their #RedThumb campaign to raise awareness and give people a away to remind themselves not to text while behind the wheel I said “yes!” This is something I feel very passionately about. I have siblings who text while driving and just thinking about what could happen to them, or someone else, makes me sick.

I’ve seen a lot of campaigns to stop texting and driving, but this is my favorite, because it’s not just some silly slogan or billboard. It’s a physical reminder that you will see every time you pick up your phone. [Read more…]

A Hallelujah Christmas by Cloverton

Cloverton Hallelujah ChristmasI’m pretty vocal about my ban on Christmas decor and music anytime before Thanksgiving weekend. I have a real problem with my favorite holiday being overshadowed.

However, Christmas music is my favorite, and Hallelujah is one of my favorite songs, so I’m going to allow, promote and share this song even in early November.

You can buy Cloverton music, including the soundtrack for this song, on!

The Piano Guys: Wonders – A Review

I’ve always been a fan of music that features the piano. I learned to play when I was thirteen and I still get butterflies every time I see a beautiful piano. The cello was an instrument I never paid much attention to since I wasn’t a fan of violins till I became an adult. I’m still pretty picky about what I’d consider good violin or cello music. The Piano Guys combine good cello with amazing piano and I’m quickly becoming a fan!

The Piano Guys Wonders Review Sony sent me a pre-release copy of The Piano Guys’ new album, Wonders, which can be found in stores on October 7th. I have been listening to it over and over. It’s so hard to pick a favorite song: my favorite varies day to day and mood to mood. Some of the songs are slow and relaxing while others have a lot of pep and can actually raise my heart rate! Today, Father’s Eyes (track 5), is especially dramatic and beautiful. It reminds me of the sun peeking through the clouds after a storm. Kung Fu Piano is pretty awesome too. It’s like a glorious victory celebration. I love it!
