Musical Monday

I’m going country today! It’s not my favorite kind of music, but Tim McGraw has a few songs I like. He can get pretty twangy, yes, but boy, this song, Live Like You Were Dying, really rocked my world. I’d heard the song before and even have put it up here once, I think.

Happy Monday, everyone. I thought this cute song would be a fun way to start the week. ~~~ Love Story, by Taylor Swift [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xg3vE8Ie_E&feature=av2e] ~~~ Boy, her music just makes me smile. She’s got a great voice, her songs are fun and up beat, but most of all, she just seems like she’s a class act. You know? Sure, she’s young, but she’s done so much! CLICK HERE for her bio, it’s pretty impressive. If she’s not a model for inspiration and dedication, I’m not sure who would be. Hope you all had a GREAT weekend! Thanks for stoppin’ by!
