singing in the trees


Last Christmas I mentioned that my husband was working on a Christmas record. I am very excited that the new Smalltown Poets record is almost finished! I got to hear the (almost) final mixes tonight and I am in love. The album is so amazing.

The guys are working on a video in bits and pieces and Michael filmed his portion this weekend. We got up squirrelly-early on Saturday morning and traveled a little bit north to visit one of my best friends from childhood because her husband owns a Christmas tree farm (a great place for a Christmas video, right?)

First of all, it was so great getting to see her as it had been WAY to long. Second of all, does anyone know how much I love Christmas trees? People, I was surrounded by them on all sides and it was heavenly.


Can't you tell I had been up since 4:45?



We had a lot of fun amongst the trees and crickets. I even got to pick out my Christmas tree for this year. In August! How exciting is that? This beauty is now tagged for my family. Eep!


And I just have to post one more photo of my love. I just find him so swoon-worthy...

Can't wait to hear the album! We go to a Christmas tree farm in West Jefferson every year to get our tree. It's one of my favorite things :)

Hi Amy! I'm so glad you found me on instagram so I could find you! I look forward to following along with your sweet family and the things God is teaching you on the journey. We've been fans of you hubs band for years. My fave "back in the day" was the song "Trust"... Good stuff :)

Ha, just found you via Life Made Lovely. I went to the hub's bandpage on FB and saw y'all were from my neck of the woods. Then looked at your profile and yep, almost!! Can't wait for their Christmas cd. I start listening about the time the leaves start changing!!
