Emma’s Playlist Grows….

Found another song for the Violet Midnight playlist!! Have you guys heard of Ellie Coulding? I’m sure I’m the only one who hasn’t at this point, considering this video has had over 19 million reviews. **LOL** She fits this story pretty well, even Emma to a point! After Emma reads this post, we’ll see if she agrees! **wink** So, what new music are you listening to these days? You never know, I might go download some new music from your suggestions. Heck, it could make a novel playlist. You just never know.

#Ragbrai Starts Today….

Lynn, not so much. But I’m sure she’ll do fine. How ‘bout you? Do you[…]

I’m back…

Hey everyone. Emma Martin here! I’m glad to be hijacking the blog again since Lynn’s off gallivanting across Iowa. Though, you have to admit, riding 350 miles in five days is pretty epic.

And it might be a lot since the Vamps have been eerily quiet lately. But enough about Vamps First off, a giveaway. These are always a ton of[…]
