with love in her eyes
and fancy flowers in her hair."

"Flowers in Her Hair"
I posted a bit yesterday about my weekend jaunt to Connecticut to attend my nephew's wedding, and welcome a new niece into the Fam. Our family has grown by leaps and bounds this past year due to weddings. Knowing the free spirited nature of our soon-to-be new family member inspired a good natured game of "What WILL she wear" amongst Thing #3, Thing #1.2, and myself. Keeping in mind the wedding took place on the beautiful grounds of a Christmas Tree Farm, and the reception was in a big red barn...my guess was a melding of Boho Hippie Chic. Thing #1.2 agreed and went a step further claiming dibs on a "flower crown". Thing #3 disagreed wholeheartedly on the entire concept. The Better Half asked...what IS Boho Hippie Chic? and was immediately kicked out of the game.
Guess who won?!?

I apologize to all those who were apparently unhappy with my decision to eliminate the weekly Song-ography "prompts" and open up submissions to any song/lyric you choose to accompany withyour photo(s). Being the mom of a teen, I am kinda accustomed to always being wrong...but I have to admit I was surprised by the reaction. BUT, Song-ography will now be entering its THIRD year. THREE YEARS of coming up with song/lyric prompts has started to take the "fun" out of the prompt for me. Who knew coming up with songs could be so difficult? I was also hoping that by eliminating the prompt, more might join in the fun since there are no longer any constraints other than your imagination and the basic premise:
Song/Lyric + Photography = Song-ography
Remember, links from blogs, Instagram and Flickr accounts are welcome. All links not adhering in some capacity to Song-ography will be deleted.
Thank you for joining in, linking up, and/or commenting. All are appreciated. Please take time to visit some of your fellow Song-ographers. Who knows, maybe you'll get an idea for a future song you'd like to use. Not to mention you'll be amazed by the talent! Thanks again!
