If you have been around for a while, you will know that the Gothard Sisters are my favourite music group. They perform Celtic music and I love them! And. . .they are releasing a new album called "Mountain Rose" on the 23rd! It's thrilling.
A description of the album. . .
"Mountain Rose was inspired by the love of simple, timeless and transcendent things - patience, courage, community, the passing of the torch from old to young, the beauty and adventure of nature, and the feeling of comfort in being with those you love as the sun sets on Summer nights. The musical album features fresh, inventive and melodic violin lines, the rhythmic drive of bodhran, djembe, percussion, Irish dance and guitar, and three-part vocal sibling harmony. . .The mountain rose may live in a harsh environment, but it survives the elements and gives hope to all who pass by and see it."
Everyday they are sharing a clip of each song (So far, they have only shared 3 and there and 12 total.) at this link: http://www.gothardsisters.com/music
Well, thank you for reading this fangirl ramble. :) I hope you are having (or have had) a delightful day.
Love ~ S. F.

To day is the 5th of June. And summer is 15 days away. :} Lovely to think about, eh?
My dear friends Kara and SW shared their summer "bucket list" (or whatever title suits your fancy), and I thought that I might as well go along and share mine.
1. Sleep under the stars
2. Go camping more than 3X
3. Learn the guitar better, and bottom hand on the piano
4. Write a song
5. Read 10 or more books
6. Keep gratitude, prayer, quote, and drawing journals
7. Memorise Scripture verses
8. Take more pictures
9. Do something I've never done before
10. Read Little Women
11. Learn German
13. Go swimming!
14. Do something I have never done before
15. Participate in Elizabeth's Summer Photo Challenge.
Those are some of them. I also hope to give this Blog-iddy Blog a new design, and go through all the 'drafted' posts that I never finished. :)
I'll post again near the end of summer and share what I was able to accomplish.
Do you have any plans for summer?
Love ~ S. F
