{ feeling nostalgic }

once upon a time, i was in college.
i met a boy (now my hubby) who convinced me to sing/play in a band despite my neurotic fear of performing in front of people. 

so i started singing and playing bells with a band called camerata 
(which aforementioned boy later joined, rocking out on the vibraphone. 
i believe at its height, camerata had a total of 10 members, but it started with these five).


these photos bring back such nostalgia.
i can't believe how young we look, kinda freaks me out.
i miss playing music with these guys, even though i would get stupidly nervous half the time.
i'm thinking it's time hubby and i start a husband and wife duo...
i think it's time i learned to play my ukulele.

How fun! That is so incredibly exciting and sweet that you did it together. And you totally should start a duo called Meg's Musings. I'd go see you!

Do the duo - you must! I just wrote about Tyrone Wells and his wife Elina (my friend from college) and how they put a duet album out :) xo

P.S. I'm giving away a song of mine today!

So fun. I love your pictures. The first one looks like a bunch of carolers at Christmas time...which of course makes me very happy because I love Christmas, and staying warm out in the cold, and getting red cheeks from the chill of the winter wind, and scarves, and carols, and the hot chocolate afterward...:) Christmas also makes me nostalgic! Have you ever seen those Christmas Carol figurines that some people decorate with (not in their yard, but say, a mantle?)? I ask because when I first me Chris, he had no clue what I was talking about...

Linnea said...

* Figurines of Christmas Carolers, I should say.
