I'm just going to be ok, be ok, be ok...

So one of our family favs (particularly Gabe's and mine) is Ingrid Michaelson. We love her... like love- love people. In fact, we might listen to her while eating breakfast in the morning we love her so much. And Gabriel knows every word to all her songs and it is so stinkin' adorable. I will video this one day because it just might make you smile too. We love all her music but this title references the one from her album, Be OK (not rocket science to guess this). I suggest you check it out... or if you just want to sit for an annoyingly long time on the blog, than I am sure it will loop through. Whatever floats your boat... Message me if you want a list of my most favorite of her or second most favorite and so on.

Oh Julie, you are getting long-winded (and writing about myself in third person---eek!). Let me get back to my beloved, Ingrid. She has a tendency to lift our (Gabe's and mine) souls right when we seem to need it most... mostly as we are embarking on some great new adventure as we crazy mays tend to do from time to time. Isn't it amazing how some music can just truly lift your spirit?

Anyways, in this whole new phase of moving pandemonium, I have found that I have clutched tighter to Ingrid than ever before, quite honestly so has Gabriel. And while driving the hills of this beautiful landscape, we often sing those lyrics over and over... "I'm just going to be ok, be ok, be ok... I'm just going to be okay today."

Well Ingrid, I believe that it might be safe to say that we are more than just okay these days. In fact... we just might be great.

Poor Kelly is probably SO tired of Ingrid Michaelson that I think I am going to have a battle on my hands trying to play her music for the llloooonnnngggg car ride this weekend to vacation. Maybe I'll just have Gabriel ask and sing a song or two. I mean seriously, it is irresistible.

Stay tuned for updates as the Mays take on the mountains!
