Welcome to Avery’s Backyard

 

 

 

An Old Christmas tree, a couple dogs, and blooming flowers can be found in her backyard one April morning.

Music selected by Avery, 4yrs old.

(Her first choice, Sound of Music, wasn’t available . She had to settle for Taylor Swift.)

Jessie

Jessie Ware.

This girl is doing something right. Her music is amazing and so identifiable.  And now that I know how silly and fun she is I am sold ♥

We received free blankets upon entry and enjoyed our picnic style music! Man, I love free things.

There were a couple acts before Jessie came on. Our favorite was the guitar player Kwame, who accompanied Craig David. His guitar and him are BFFs.Luff these girls ! Would not have wanted to see Jessie with anyone else. Tess introduced me to Jessie’s music about a month ago, and it was perfect timing that she came to Dubai right after.  We three are her fans for life!

Champagne Kisses

Who’s fault is this
That I’m crazy about you
You are in every single dream
And I’m thinking about you

If you wanna do, do, do me right
Do, do, do, do, do
If you wanna leave it all tonight
Do, do, do, do, do

When there’s nothing left
Except you and this
Champagne kisses
Champagne kisses
Champagne

Sing a New Song

She is coming to Dubai at the end of the month.

I want to see her.

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

Mr Noah.

I like every single one of his songs. How have I not heard of him before?!

You remind me of cigarettes
The way I hold you in my chest
The way you kiss me
With your filter breath
And I keep thinking
I’m getting over this

Tv Shows

It takes a lot for me to get hooked on a tv show. I have started so many to just lose interest halfway through. A few of the shows that I have stayed faithful to are The Office, How I Met Your Mother, and Friends.

But a new one will be adding itself to the list.

Parenthood (thanks Renee!)

Because it is good. And I laugh. And I cry. And i shazam the music they play on that show. Seriously, whoever is the music guy, he picks the best songs to make you get the feels.

The newest one that is on repeat:

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I’d be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet

Halfway through season 3. So don’t tell me any spoilers!

Everything I am Feeling

Sleeping At Last – West

maps stretched out-
too many miles to count.
let’s just say we’re inches apart,
even closer at heart,
and we’ll be just fine.

another pin pushed in
to remind us where we’ve been.
and every mile adds up
and leaves a mark on us.
and sometimes our compass breaks
and our steady true north fades.
we’ll be just fine.

we’ll be just fine.
we’ll be just fine.
we’ll be just fine,
i know that we will.
i just know we will.

time moves slow
when half of your heart has yet to come home.
every minute’s adding up
and leaving a mark on us.
i can’t get you out of my mind.
i can’t get you out of my mind.
i can’t get you out of my mind.
i solemnly swear,
i swear that i’ll never try.

we’ll be just fine.
we’ll be just fine.
we’ll be just fine,
i know that we will.

we’ll be just fine.
we’ll be just fine.
it’s a matter of time
’til our compass stands still,
’til our compass stands still.

OverandOverandOver

“Wasteland”

I’m the first one in line to die
When the cavalry comes
Yeah it feels like the great divide
Has already come
Yeah I’m wasting my way through days
losing youth along the wayOh if God is on my side
Yeah, if God is on my side
Oh, if God is on my side
Then who can be against me

There was a greatness I felt for awhile
But somehow it changed
Some kind of blindness I used to protect me
From all of my stains
Yeah I wish this was vertigo
But it just feels like I’m falling slow

Oh if God is on my side
Then who can be against me
Yeah , In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to get by
Yeah, In this wasteland where I’m livin’
There is a crack in the door filled with light
And it’s all that I need to shine
All of these people I meet
It seems like they’re fine
Yeah in some ways I hope that they’re not
And their hearts are like mine
Yeah, It’s wrong when it seems like work
To belong all I feel is hurt
Oh, If God is on my side
Yeah, if God is on my side
Oh, If God is on my side
Who can be against me?
