We all need a little music in our lives. A good song can answer a question, soothe the soul and provide an escape. It can recall a memory in the most vivid detail and evoke the most intense feelings.
“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” -Sarah Dessen
We created Tunesday Tuesday to do just that, bring people together through music.
Every Monday night at 9pm the link up will go live at The Patchwork Paisley, Drinking the Whole Bottle, Momma Candy, and MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. We will designate a theme, and hope that you will share a song that embodies said theme for you. Post the video for the song, an audio clip, the lyrics- however you want to do it. Then, write a little something about why this song captures the week's theme and link up your post here with us!
Visit your hosts after 9pm (EST) on Monday nights
to find out what the theme is for the week!
It would be awesome if you would follow your lovely hostesses (links below,) but other than that- let's have fun with this! Know a fellow music lover who should get in on the party? Let them know about it! Want to share your groove with the world? Tweet it should you feel so inclined. Want to grab a button? Go for it. It's really pretty and you'll find it down below.

When we had Violet's one year pictures taken in 2011, our amazing photographer Lesley Worley made me a slideshow of the images set to this song by Taylor Swift. I had never heard the song before and as a first time mom was immediately brought to tears. I was watching time fly by in warp speed, finally understanding what everyone had been saying to me since the day she way born: enjoy every moment because the time will fly.
I thought the second time around with Ruby would somehow be different. I would know more, be able to slow things down a bit without some of the trepidation of parenting clouding my vision and see, live and hold on to every second. Now almost 5 months have passed since she was born and here I am again, marveling at how much she grows and changes every single day.
There is nothing like being a mom. I live each day with my heart on the outside of my body, worrying, hoping, laughing and experiencing more love than I ever could have imagined was possible. This song says so many thing, not just about the feeling of having little girls, but the experience of being one too. I connect with it on so many levels and I hope you enjoy it.
