learning to be brave with my art even in all its imperfections.
my heart for this year is to not categorize myself in a certain box, but to just be an artist.
i wasn't going to originally share this, because it's rather rough right now.
i can pick out all the mistakes (cracks in my voice, missed keys, moments of hesitation). but :
I love this song so much and I've had several people ask.
so in all it's messy beauty...here it is. :)

  2. This is lovely hannah. I've actually be learning this on the guitar. So pretty. Thing is: I love that it has a few rough spots, and the fact that there are little voices in the background is just beautiful. So genuine and real. xoxo.

  8. Your voice is angelic. The little everyday noises in the back make it better than the original. In fact, you make it better than the original. Wonderful.

  26. I want so much to just listen to that over and over.

    I know what's it's like to try to be brave. It's so easy to hide and be afraid. (Additionally, it's easy to not do something because no one else does it, because you haven't seen it done before.) I hid for far too long and I'm just now coming out of my shell. Thank you for being brave and passing the torch.

  27. I'm really, really loving the deep notes of that piano. How old is it?

    You have a pretty and unique voice, Hannah. Thanks so much for being brave and sharing. xoxo

  28. thank you all so much for your kind words. they're such an encouragement and blessing to me! :)

    I love our piano -- it's over 100 years old (I think 101 or 102) and we've had it since I was five.

  36. Um, you blew me away! Normally I avoid covers like the plague. You know the ones. Bad recording, half dressed girl, out of tune guitar. But you. Your voice is so clear.

    Thank you for sharing!
