More music to share!! This one is called “Gardener’s Waltz” & will be included on my upcoming album, “New Beginnings,” set to be released in December 2016!
I try not to play favorites too much with my songs, but I must say, this one is toward the top. I wrote this song in dedication to my beautiful mother, Carla Wintz. She is my #1 role model. The best compliment I can get is when someone tells me I remind them of my mom. She is who I am constantly striving to be like. Not only is she a beautiful person on the outside, she is the most beautiful person I’ve ever met on the inside. Her joyful spirit is infectious & radiates to everyone she meets. She loves her Catholic faith & her closeness with God & her faith is something that is obvious when you meet her. She’s always the one I turn to for everything I need. She’s the most kind-hearted, wonderful, loving woman in the world & I can’t believe I got so lucky that she’s my mom. I’m crying as I write this because I am just so grateful.
I thought about my mom throughout the entire process of writing Gardener’s Waltz. I knew a song with a waltz beat would be perfect for her because, growing up, whenever a waltz would come on her CD player while we were doing dishes or cleaning, she would stop everything & grab one of us kids & waltz around the room. She often talked about how she would dance with her dad like that when she was growing up. This is a perfect example of my mom’s beautiful joyful spirit… that beautiful spirit I tried to capture in the form of a song. I hope she waltzes around her kitchen while listening to Gardener’s Waltz once it’s on my next CD! 🙂
This one is for you Mom!! I LOVE YOU!!!
P.S. The day I am posting this (September 7, 2016) is my mom & dad’s 42nd wedding anniversary. Another great example set by them to strive for! 🙂
P.P.S. I hope you love this one!! Let me know what you think of it by leaving me a comment. Thanks all!!

Really love this Janeen! How sweet of you to dedicate this to your mom. She is going to love it! I used to dance around the room with my girls too and now I have a wall hanging in our living room that says Dance as if no one is watching.
I love that jerilyn!! Those moments between mothers & daughters are special for sure 🙂 thanks for the nice comment!
