l'amour du jour: Ukudaily

Today's l'amour du jour is showing another blog some love. Ukudaily is the adorable blog project of my brother's good friend Hanna [who is now my friend too, sheesh!]. In her words: "I've played a lot of instruments in my day, though none of them very well. I embarked on this project to keep me focused on practicing and improving, hopefully just a little bit every day."

Hanna plays her ukulele daily- Ukudaily! Really, I can't even handle how much I love the name. Sigh. AND she takes song requests... so you won't just hear "Over the Rainbow" by IZ 365 times [the only ukulele song I could think of], but instead you will hear the likes of "Hey Ya" by Outkast, or Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash.

I really admire Hanna- and definitely am a little jelly belly over the fact she can sing so well! Fact about me: I spend a lot of time imagining what song I'd sing IF I ever did karaoke, and I never have [Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper, duh]. I like checking Ukudaily because a) it brightens my day, every day. b) It is a nice change from the 900 fashion blogs I read. c) the songs always vary and so many of my favorites have been featured. Plus sometimes, there are guests as well with other instruments [and once the guest was a yorkie, a dog not a person from New York]. If I were you, I'd watch the video below- then scoot on over to Ukudaily and check out the rest!

[I chose Hanna's version of Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros with her friend Billy helping her out. It is a song I really love beyond love, and may be my favorite on Ukudaily so far].
