2013 - A Whirlwind

This year seems to have been in turbo drive! So much has happened, less writing and more doing over this way. As I look back on all that has taken place, I know that over here at the Hot, Black and Bitter Palace we are all in a better place than we were this time last year. And that, my friends, is the point of this lovely thing called life-- to be better off every single year. To grow as people, to lose the unhealthy people in your lives, to gain some perspective and to move towards whatever goals you have set for yourself.

That is what we have done-- and 2014 is set to be a banner year for us… and we wish the same for all of you! Here is to more balance for all of us in the year to come. Much love and blessings.

Soulful Saturday - Wedding Songs

I shouldn't even have to type that things are headed into high gear around here… our "pre-wedding" reception is exactly one week from today-- and you know, a wedding ceremony on the 23rd. There are last minute preparations happening, last minute RSVPs coming in and (surprisingly) no freak out sessions. Lefty and I don't see each other much because we work different shifts, so there have been no catastrophic meltdowns-- not that there would be. I mean, we are an older kinda couple and I think that we both know that the plans will get done, or they won't and we will deal.

This weekend I will be up to my eyeballs with music. Music for our cocktail party and a playlist for working out, and the honeymoon trip. If you haven't noticed, I am kind of a music snob-- ok, not a snob, but I totally believe that the right music transforms a moment-- and how important do you think the moments that we will have next week have with our families are? Exactly. So here are a few jewels that I am (probably) adding to the playlists.

Shania Twain - From This Moment On 

Let's not kid ourselves, Shania can sing AND she is one super, duper hot Canadian. I remember when this video came out-- that dress was EVERYTHING then, and it still is!!

**You're the reason I believe in love. And you're the answer to my prayers from up above.**


Surface - Shower Me With Your Love

**Fairy tales, they do, sometimes come true. If you believe it could happen to you**


 Michael Buble - The Way You Look Tonight

Edwin McCain - I Could Not Ask For More 

I can't lie-- I totally wanted Edwin to be more attractive, but he makes great music, and really, that is all that matters!

**These are the moments I thank God that I'm alive. And these are the moments I'll remember all my life. I've got all I've waited for and I could not ask for more.**


Savage Garden - I Knew I Loved You 

So.Very.Fitting for Lefty and I

**I knew I loved you before I met you, I think I dreamed you into life. I knew I loved you before I met you, I have been waiting all my life.**
