French Fries.

So a while back I wrote a song in french, just as an experiment and because I think the language is really beautiful and thought it would sound pretty as a sort of lullaby.

I don't speak french well at all, I only know a few things that I've picked up from listening to language tapes and the internet and stuff. But I want to speak it fluently someday.. (Yeah, right, like that'll ever happen..)

Here is a video of the song, although I'm not sure who's youtube account that is or who posted it haha.


Enjoy!

Love,
Christie

A little boredom goes a long way.

So since I've been home from tour I've had a lot of free willy time on my hands.
Only instead of using it to save whales, I have just been chillin' hard:

Watching Gossip Girl (ugh, barf, I know, yet it's hard to quit), making cake pops, and taking lots of photos because for one, I am addicted to Instagram and that always has me taking photos and editing them on my iPhone, but also I have been trying to force myself to use my NikonD50 and Photoshop more often. Because I am extremely blessed to have a Nikon at all, since it was given to me :)

Here is the result of today's particularly convoluted boredom.





My boyfriend said "You look scary in the moon picture" when I showed it to him,
and I said it was supposed to look scary, and then admitted to it actually having hurt my feelings a little.
He apologized, but really we all know I was just being overly sensitive.

By the way, I should mention the reason for my boredom is that I usually have like 9000 siblings to hangout with all the time, but the majority of them are on tour right now either with their own bands or tagging along with their husbands bands. And I being 1 of 6 children, am just not used to hangin' solo!

Which leaves me making coffee at home a lot of the time and pondering the complexities of boredom gone mad.

Love,
Christie

Blessed Soul (Lyrics)

Hi! So a lot of people have been asking me to post the lyrics to our new EP "Through the Rough" somewhere, so I figured the best place to share them would be on my blog.

I'll just do one song for now, so here are the lyrics to "Blessed Soul"

Blessed Soul
~
Indeed I am a blessed soul, I'm captive in this human role
I wear inside my ribcage den, a heart so fine I'll let you in
Just knock once more upon the door, the wood is dense but this makes sense
Cause there beneath the walls of love a chorus echos from above
From above..

And if you choose to let me love you
Our love, our love would reach the sky
No bounds, no bonds, no breaks no ties
Just you, just me, our loves goes free

Of course I know this ancient trick, it's taught me how your heart does tick
Blinded by this revelation, I knew I'd know you till the end
Just knock once more upon the door, the wood is dense but this makes sense
There beneath the walls of love a chorus echos from above
From our love

And if you choose to let me love you
Our love, our love would reach the sky
No bounds, no bonds, no breaks no trials
Just you, just me, our love goes free

And if you choose to let me love you
If you choose to stay a little while
And if you choose to let me love you
(I know I'll never see you cry)
Our love, our love would reach the sky
(And babe we'll make it to the end)
No bounds, no bonds, no breaks no ties
Just you, just me, our love goes free
~
