I managed to wrangle my ragtag circus into three rings today (work, home/family, and cyber stuff), and thus afforded myself the rare opportunity to visit some of my favorite blogs and to find some new ones.  A music link-up at 5 Minutes Just for Me inspired me to share a few of the songs and artists I've discovered lately that make me smile, bring me peace, or stir some joy in my oft weary soul.   What songs or artists have you made a connection with lately?


  1. That first song from Josh Rouse is wonderful! I am going to have google him as I have not heard of him before. Thanks so much for the introduction!

    Thanks also for joining in with Sunday Song. I hope you can share some more fabulous artists and songs next week!

    Best wishes,

  2. This music is really new to me. I enjoyed the last artist, Sondre Lerche. He seemed to really find peace in his art, and that always draws me to musician.

  3. I would be at the mom and pop coffee shop where I can't listen right now! :( Ha ha!

  4. Thanks for sharing. These are new to me and really enjoyed Josh Rouse :)

  5. Love the music Jenn. Thanks for sharing. I so love stumbling upon cool artists when recommended by pals.

    Just wanted to let you know I've been thinking of you. I so loved meeting you in San Fran and hope you're doing well. A coworker was just in my office talking about wanting to get more crafty so I sent her to your blog for inspiration. Please visit when you can so we can chat here and there. Hugs. -- Jen
