It's hard to believe that this time last year I was in the middle of touring the country for the first time with my husband and a handful of other musicians. Derek Webb (whose new album is beautiful - if you don't have it, get it) told us about Macklemore before he blew up, and I visited the Gateway Arch for the first time. As I type this, I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that a whole year has passed since then. Fittingly, Dann and I got to hear Jennifer Egan talk about writing last night - "Time's a goon, right?" Right. Anyway, here are some of my favorite things from The Internet lately - just for you. Enjoy!

I scrolled through these photos (via) while listening to this song and felt the weight of the world in my lungs.

According to this, I belong in South Carolina. What about you? 

"The power of stories is that they are telling us that life adds up somehow, that life itself is like a story." - Frederick Buechner via Anne Lamott, who was cracking me up on twitter this week.

Anybody in the UK want to get me this for Christmas?
