5 Artists that Speak to Me on a Deeper Level.

I love music. I am very rarely without music going. If there's silence it's very intentional and very rare.

Today is the last day of the year. On this date ten years ago, my husband and I became engaged in one of my favorite places: on the lighted bridge at the Festival of Lights.
