Introducing Tunesday Tuesday - "And the Jukebox Plays" but on steroids!

We all need a little music in our lives. A good song can answer a question, soothe the soul and provide an escape. It can recall a memory in the most vivid detail and evoke the most intense feelings.

 “Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” -Sarah Dessen

We created Tunesday Tuesday to do just that, bring people together through music.

Every Monday night at 9pm the link up will go live at The Patchwork Paisley, Drinking the Whole Bottle, Momma Candy, and MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. We will designate a theme, and hope that you will share a song that embodies said theme for you. Post the video for the song, an audio clip, the lyrics- however you want to do it. Then, write a little something about why this song captures the week's theme and link up your post here with us! 

Visit your hosts after 9pm (EST) on Monday nights
 to find out what the theme is for the week!

It would be awesome if you would follow your lovely hostesses (links below,) but other than that- let's have fun with this! Know a fellow music lover who should get in on the party? Let them know about it! Want to share you groove with the world? Tweet it should you feel so inclined. Want to grab a button? Go for it. It's really pretty and you'll find it down below.

This Week

We're watching the story of your life. 

                                                               What is the song that plays to introduce you? 

If you could sum yourself up in a song, what would it be?
                                                              That's your "anthem."

**Don't forget to link up your post below & visit some participants to see what they're jamming out to!**

Can't stick around for this week's party?? 
Next week's theme will be...
A song that suits your current mood.

I had been highlighting music for some time under my And the Jukebox Plays label when my favorite, Megan, from The Patchwork Paisley, complimented me on adding music to her life... again. An idea for a blog hop was born. And thanks to Megan, her get-er-done attitude, and unrivaled artistic nature, Tunesday Tuesday was created. 

Music is such a big part of all of the moments in my life and sometimes just a sanctuary, a place to go for a minute or two and take it all in.

So without further ado...

I did have a dream. A dream so big loud I might as well have touched the clouds.

I dreamt of finding the love of my life and then traveling the world with him. I dreamt of having children. Beautiful, healthy, personality-filled children. I dreamt of a life with good friends and hard laughter and amazing memories. A life split wide open with vast possibility and no limitations, with no regrets because I was living my best life. So what better song to be my anthem than The Best Day of My Life.

I think sometimes we think that the best days of our life have to be days of awesome, spectacular, movie-type grand events. Not true. Some of the best days are like that but more often than not they are quiet and regular and run of the mill. Random Thursday afternoons at the Burrito Shop, lazy Sunday evenings with a book by the pool - or the fireplace, afternoons at the park, bedtime snuggles and hugs and "I love you much. Mucho, mucho." 

No, not everyday is perfect, some can be downright crappy but I'm living the life I want. I feel that in my soul. Howling at the moon, dancing with monsters, stars brighter than ever before, stretching my hands out to the sky...

These days...
 are the best days of my life.


  1. What an awesome song! Officially added to my playlist! :)

  2. I love this song and have heard it once or twice, but never actually focused on the words. They are great and so perfect for your anthem!!! I need to download this... YAY Tunesday Tuesday!! I am so going to look forward to these posts every week!!
