Happy Birthday Ella
A Big Happy Birthday to the "First Lady of Song": Ella Fitzgerald. I love Ella's beautiful and clear voice. When I use to work at my boring law firms job, Ella's voice was always in my headphones to keep me swinging and dreaming. Whether I'm in a romantic, melancholy or happy mood, Ella is there to provide her wondrous voice to my feelings.
Here are some great words from the lady herself:
"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong."
"It isn't where you came from, its where you're going that counts."
I also have a blog award to share. Tristan of Enchanted Reverly gifted me with this lovely and heartfelt award called The Renee award. Go here to learn the important story behind this wonderful award from one of the co-creators Bella. In Bella's own words this award was created in honor of Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…
I'm passing out the love to these creative ladies: Gyspy of Daisy Yellow Blog

And now, here is Ella to serenade you off. Hope your having a great weekend so far.
As always, Sweet Dreams to you all.
I had to put another song on. Just can't have one Ella Song.
