a few months ago i was connected to stephanie madsen, who happens to be a friend of a friend, and an incredibly talented musician. we've been listening to her christmas album the past few weeks, and i wanted to spread the word in case any of you readers are looking for more music to listen to during the holiday season. (i feel like i'm always looking for new music, maybe it's the dancer in me...)
after a successful kickstarter campaign, stephanie released her first album, and has been making music since. you can get 50% off of her christmas album on her website stephaniemadsenmusic.com. (the one we've been listening to on repeat today.) support the arts, y'all. it's important. i'm constantly amazed by the talent i'm surrounded by. at the very least, check out her website (you can listen to her lovely voice before purchasing) /social media pages.
the past few days post hospital have been a blur. i knew bringing an infant home to a toddler would be nuts. i forgot i'd still need to find things to eat, clean once in a while, and didn't realize that using the bathroom would turn into it's own process. i've had a lot of help around here, but it's still been crazy. this is the first time it's felt a little calm-- like things are finally slowing down. and even if it's just for a moment, i'm grateful for that, especially during this time of year, when i want to remember the things that are most important, you know?
thanks to stephanie for filling my home with your beautiful talent (and to hannah for connecting us!) i love the christmas season.
