I am in the process of making a few gifts for you three. I want to give them to you in person before Christmas but the one huge problem is I don't know where you live in case I have to send it to you by mail. I probably won't make it to the free concert this Saturday because I think my church is doing a luminary walk the same day......... plus the roads on the toll road will probably be really slick.I was also the girl who brought her black Ibanez guitar to the concert in Valparaiso. By the way that concert was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am very shy so if I did meet you and give you the gifts I probably would say " here these are for you".
Thanks for reading,
Please contact me on facebook or Hotmail " firstname.lastname@example.org"

A big snow storm is about to hit, and everyone's talking about having a snow day tomorrow. I love snow days, because then I don't feel guilty for staying home during the week. And I believe that in order to get a snow day, you must do the following four things:
1. Wear your pajamas inside out.
2. Open your freezer door and do the chicken dance in front of it.
3. Flush an ice cube down the toilet.
4. Sleep with a spoon under your pillow.
That, my friends, will earn you a snow day. Hopefully.
The biggest lesson God has been trying to teach me has been knowing who I am—I mean really knowing who I am and why I exist. I've studied for years different Bible verses on destiny and identity. I've spoken those words hundreds, maybe thousands of times...even when I thought they weren't true.
One thing I began to realize is that I have a very warped view of what a beautiful ending is. When I die and go to heaven, God won’t be asking how many albums I sold, if I had #1 singles, if I was a successful artist, if I made money, if I had a million Twitter followers or the most friends on Facebook. And yet for myself, and so many others, that has so often been my "finish line.” I think that somehow, when all is said and done, those things will give me value and make me feel like I've lived a full and successful life.
I know its totally cliche to say this, but for me, this really is the most wonderful time of the year. This season holds such a wonderful feeling to me that no other season can really compare too..There is just an energy in the air. Maybe its because everything, everywhere you look is extra sparkly. That might help. I love being home in December. Last year we were home but we were making the album so we didn't get to enjoy it so much cause we were writing day and night. But this year we get to live it to its fullest. And Chicago is AMAZING during the Christmas season. If you've never been downtown you must go. Granted it is so cold you will possibly get hypothermia the second you step outside, but to walk around and just take in the beauty of the city is sorta worth it. The decorations are amazing and the window displays in Marshall Fields (now known as Macy's) are always my favorite. Oh!
