High Hopes! :)


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, March 28, 2013


I used to sing this song when I was a kid. It always made me feel so hopeful and encouraged, I decided to learn it on my uke, so I could sing it to myself now. Hey, singing to yourself can be very motivating. You don't even have to be a very good singer. You just have to have the right song. Trust me.

So, I've been practicing this song, still working around some tricky chord changes. Thought I might share it with you later, when I had the hang of it a little better. But when I picked the girls up from school today, it was so sunny and they were so happy to be out on Spring Break, we decided to throw this little vlog together and share the fun.

High hopes, people! Sometimes that can make all the difference in the world!

School's Out! (for a week, anyway)

    It's really too bad you can't add someone's blog to your 'favorites' list. That's where this one needs to go...on my favs list. I need to be able to go back and look at this again and again. Not only is it a great song, (I too have been singing it since I was a child), you and the girls made it so much fun. I am seriously considering taking up the the ukelele!
You are truly amazing!
