Isn’t She Fun!

Oh y’all. The That Sounds Fun Weekend 2017 is about six weeks away and I am CRAZY EXCITED. Don’t you know that I cannot think of anything more fun than inviting my friends to come spend a weekend with me in Nashville! I am so pumped about it. Last year was AMAZING and this year

Why Jamie-Grace?

Jamie-Grace and I met a year and a half ago at a Mac Powell country concert. Here’s what. I thought she was really cool and my friends who know her LOVE her, so Mac’s wife introduced us and we both were like, “whoaaaaaaa I think we should be real friends.” And so it began. We

Weights & Wings.

Oh y’all. You know I love to tell you about great music. Mumford and Sons. Dave Barnes. The Civil Wars. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. And today? It is Mr. Matt Wertz. There are a few musicians in town whose music I liked before I lived here. In most cases, becoming friends with the musician

Bloggites, you win. You always do.

So because you always win, you get first dibs on buying my book. I wanted to do something special for my blog friends to celebrate the release of the book, so I made some calls and this is what me and my buddies pulled together. Here are the details: – Autographed [by me!!!] copy of

Well. Prepare yourself. For laughs.

Because this is the funniest moment of your day. ALL THE LIVE LONG YESTERDAY I had “I come to you with expectations, Baton Rouge…” running through my head. That junk is funny. Dave and Andrew will be out and about for the next few weeks and there will be a special handshake for any AnnieBlogs

The most beautiful of birthdays.

I’m going to let the pictures do the talking. Because truthfully, I can’t talk about my birthday dinner/party without crying. In fact, I didn’t even make it through the creation of this glorified slideshow without boo-hooing. Because I am overwhelmed. Still. A week later. Enjoy the gorgie-poo decor… and the delicious food… and the beautiful

My writing table.

I have long wanted to use this table well. It used to be my grandmother’s. It sat in her bedroom, beside her bed. I’ve had it since she passed away in 1999, but this is the first time I feel like it is being fully appreciated. And by that, I mean, “many-a-stacks live here.” I sat
