  5. Those are cute earrings! I just found your blog and I'm super excited because you are a music ed major AND play mandolin. My husband plays mandolin (since he was about 8) and I, well I USED to be a music ed major, but I switched to elementary ed, but I hold a special place in my heart for music education. Someday I'll go back to school and get my music education endorsement.

    Anyways, that was far longer than it had to be, but I'm excited to meet a music educator in the blog world!

    1. love it! I wish I could say I played the mandolin well, but it's more of something I try to do when I have free time on the side (violin's my major instrument). I hope you're able to go back someday! Sometimes I think it would be really cool to get an elementary ed degree and then incorporate music into that classroom setting and just be known as the singing 2nd grade teacher or something like that :)

  6. Love the headband! Very cute. Just started following your blog. Will have to add you to the sidebar of mine. Feel free to stop by anytime!
