I Get by with a little help from my friends








Here are a few shots from my little photo shoot in Alabama last week with my friend Elaine Davis. She is such a creative soul. She did a great job.I got the chance to see her and her hubby Keith, and one of my best friends from High school, Mallory, who had a 4th baby named Gray ive been meaning to meet. So...now's the next step. I'm done with my songs for the little EP ( mini album of 5 songs)...but i CANT THINK OF A NAME!!! i wondered if the pics would help me...but i still cant think of a name. I intend to release it only digitally ...with pics and the ability to download to i-tunes....
The names of the songs are 1. Home Sweet Home 2. Love you just because 3. Come on Lets Go 4. Honeydew Melon 5. Butterfly Wings....
Is it boring to name the whole thing  "Home Sweet Home"...(i feel thats the best song on there)??? Or name it "Come On Let's Go"?Any other ideas? I've thought of some pretty silly ones. Kevin thought of naming it "It's Awesome". That way people would say " Have you heard Mandy's new Ep Its awesome" even if they didnt think it was awesome...they said it. Ha ha ha.....

by the way, did amanda do your color? i LOVE IT. i want to do that with the ends highlighted but mine is too short. ahhh, envy gets me everytime. love u.

ok, mojo just said that 'just because' would be a cool title...and he also asked if there was anything significant going on in your life that comes out in the verses? maybe go with that.

ohhh Mandy. These pictures are absolutely GORGEOUS of you!!! I love your face. Your shirt. Your hair {AMAZING} and that sweet background. These pictures are TOTALLY YOU!

I can NOT wait to hear this little EP! Hmmm...I really love "Butterfly Wings" ...it sounds very significant and perfect for the season that you have been in. I also saw a picture that Hollie took of you when we had that photoshoot at your house. Not sure if you have it or not, but it's the one of you wearing the butterfly wings!! I LOVE that one. You look so cute. If you dont have it....let me know. You must own that one.

xoxo

Love these pics. Love Kevin's idea. Can't wait to hear the songs. I like "Come On, Let's Go" at first blush . . . it sounds fun, summery.

you guys are so funny!
i LOVE those photos! totally you.

i'm so excited about this coming out, i can't even think of a name! i will say, along w/ kelli, i love butterfly wings...but mainly because i'm partial to anything w/ butterfly in it. plus, you always look so dang cute when you wear them. totally your little trademark in my mind.

either way, i'm SO excited for you. let's get together & chat more about all of this.

love you and am SO VERY PROUD OF YOU! you've even got people googling you! come on now!

Hmmmm. I hate naming albums! It's just so, so...final! I like the 'just because' suggestion, but I also like the 'come on, lets go' idea too. Do you HAVE to name it one of the song titles? I'd like to know the lyrics too to pick out a gem of a phrase that you wrote, so it'll shine more on the cover! I'm so glad that this is all coming together for you. Plus the photos are so very cool. :)

my friends....thanks so much for your suggestions...i need em. I cherish all your thoughts and suggestions. Ariana. you're right that it doesnt have to be a song title...but i cant find a gem in a lyric either...you are so good at writing...ill think through the lyrics again too...I like parts of every suggestion...thanks friends.

The pictures turned out really good. You look beautiful! I love all the names of the songs, so I think any of those would be great. I just can't wait to hear it. keep me posted .
I had SO much fun spending time together while you were here! love you

LOVELY.
i like come on lets go or even home sweet home. not crazy about butterfly wings as the title b/c it makes me think of the butterfly kisses song or a child's album.
let us know!
