for you, marms!

happy mother's day to my sweet mother!

certain artists always make me think of my mom.  rickie lee jones is definitely one of them. when beau and i were young, my parents were looking for property at the lake and they had rickie lee jones on repeat as we drove around roaming shores--and we hated her! but now i love rlj and the memories of my childhood her songs bring me.

there are a few things i miss about cleveland. but mostly, it is being away from my family that makes my heart ache from time to time. i had such a charmed childhood. and my infatuation with music comes from being raised in a home where music was always playing. this song doesn't necessarily capture what homesick means to me, but it is pretty and i love the kings of convenience...
