IN MY LIFE:
Forgive me, but I need to have a proud friend moment today. The insanely sweet and talented Christa Wells is releasing her newest album, Velveteen, and ALL of you need to get it on iTunes today.
I’m not even going to begin to describe or review it, because her sound is so unique and her talent for songwriting is prolific. Let it suffice to say that her melodies are hauntingly beautiful and she transcends genre. While the title track will stick with you, I dare say everyone in today’s society and climate needs to listen to the first track, “Down Down Low”.
You can find Velveteen on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/dk/album/velveteen/1350952125
Two other items of interest:
- Keep an eye out for your ValPak coupon envelopes in the mail: yours might just contain a $100 check!
- I found out who sent me my Aqua Notes. I won’t reveal who since I know they didn’t do it for public praise, but I’m just so grateful I have friends that not only join me on the dash each day, but listen and want to share their stories with me too. So thankful for each of you!
