Taylor is spending this week promoting Food on the Move . Last night they were at the EDU Rec Center Handing out food and community resources ; Today was a pitch presentation to Tulsa Community College North West campus and tomorrow FOTM will have a Food Drop again at TCC . in every Food on the move promo picture I see him smiling . Today was the officIAL launch , but he has building up to this since 2014 . starting small in Areas without a proper grocery store . I watched the Facebook Live of Taylors presentation , and it brought me to tears - because -Totally makes my day ! for a brief moment he brought dr Patton back to the life for me #inspiration #legs 🤓💕❤so proud of what Taylor is doing and wish them all the best .zero question I'm so grateful . If Mark was still around he'd be cheering him on and still making my cry . my nickname for them was always legs because they have them as tall as me - their girl :) . this makes want to perfect my own ideas and pitch even more . not giving up quite yet :)

I finally got word today that my DOrs re application is coming along . now comes the fun part of finding the funds ( kinda pun intended ) for benefit counseling and job coaching . I just hope it isn't two years - in that time I could do it for my self . in a way , i hope so I can fit in vacation . mom and I have a cruise with the Taylor Ladies ( Aunt Kathie and cousin Al ) in April and then our 3 weeks in May - Golf ; scott's ordination and Joey Raines and Laurens Wedding . - where Im hoping against hope to see Cousin Bren again for the first time in 2 years at his only Les Miz in MD performance . Seriously , During Taylor's solo I was literally thinking of the care and musical expertise they both used to be nothing but perfect . it was 2 performances that are my two top performances ever . they were both so sentimentally heart - felt and musically sound that they will be comparison for every concert after . earlier I was trying to donate to Taylor's food on the Move to no avail . I submitted a question . hopefully they answer . Im so inspired by him ; i love he is using his celebrity the way it should - to lift up others . I want to be able to that for myself . Im reopened to the idea to pitch The Business Plan and Marketing Idea I wrote for Dr Patton again . I tried to pitch it to the ARC 6 years ago and they were uninterested . Now Im complying all my drafts into one that hopefully will describe the scope of the need that is still lacking in all areas .

Valentines tribute to Mr Taylor Hanson .

nearly 20 years ago ( 19 years and 9 months ) , I didnt have a direction in my life . I was just finished studying general studies in high school and trying to decide which direction to take this . I choose business because I thought if I couldn't be a professional singer , I could be part of music on the business end of it . in 1997 when Hanson on to the scene from the " middle of Nowhere " , i'd planned to take typing 101 that fall . ( yes kids of now there was such a thing ) . it wasn't until I saw Isaac , Taylor and Zac of Hanson that I knew I wanted to be in business for the rest of my life . because they were doing what they loved to do contrary to their young ages . Despite the challenges of having their parents as mentors and managers , they forged a career that was their own - writing , playing , and self - producing all their songs . Taylor in particular caught my eye and I haven't left . he has been my inspiration in times when I didn't know if I could get my self out of trouble . Ive made a few mistakes that I thought were the end of my career . but he has inspired me to keep going . his optimistic out look is the one thing I think that glues Hanson as a band together when Ike's worries and Zacs realist attitude think other wise .

Over the years, he has spread his celebrity and resources to to support many charities . I too the see need of the disabled grow bigger every day , especially the need of rehabilitation and vocational support . with the new OklA music MUSEum, Hanson brewery and main Street expansion in Tulsa , it hope he continues to reach out .
as a teenager , I wanted to marry him , but the odd thing is I feel more in connection with as his fan. there is a mutual sense of gratitude that I hope is always present .
for the High Def BTTI 17 photo dreams come true kids I swear :)

After 20 years l think I'm finally going to give this dude a valentines tribute Tues . After btti 17 he deserves it , but also I'm so lucky he has unmellowed and realizes it's ok to express your self personally and talk to your fans away from the stage .
we'll see dont have much really romantic to say but I have yet to acknowledge to him in person what an inspiration he is to me and I wanna milk the hug where I can . its too awesome not to .

When Carrie N Found Hanson Part 2 - 2000
February 2000 ? I had found in a Entertainment weekly Magazine that Hanson were all grown up and making new music . They had promised a more rock album with an harder edge . I wasn't sure if I would like this .
April 17 2000 MTV aired the making of this time Around Video on making the video . I had to record it because I wasn't allowed to stay up til 11 pm on school night . First , From the moment I saw that Video , the song this time around became my hanson anthem . I loved That Taylor was back in the forefront and for the first time he was playing basically grand piano on a single . it was so inspiring .
May 9 2000 I bought the album . at first listen it was too contrasting from Middle of Nowhere for me . I'd only liked The song this time around and the ballads "Save Me " ( that Tay actually finale'd my BTTI 17 solo with ) and IKes "Love Song " .
Until June 2000 When the Video for "IF Only " single 2 topped the Total Request Live Chart . I Was soo happy / excited my band finally topped all the boy bands that didn't even play instruments . Then I really began to like it .
Other Fave songs are Hand In Hand and Run away Run .
But then College came in 2005 . I had Struggled with Accounting for so long the in the spring of 2006 ,Prof Williams basically told me to not major in business . I cried ; it truly hurt me to the core . IF Dr Patton had known that , honestly I think he would have threaten him in some way . from Then on I would listen to this time around to inspire me every Friday morning before accounting , sometimes 7 , 6 or 4 in the morning . it began my goal to prove him wrong . Taylor's voice was basically my kiss off saying " nothing is going to stop me from doing what I love " and still nothing is . no matter what It takes .
Over the years as well songs from this time around have become some of my fave favorite live performances : Esp Hand in Hand and Save Me . bonkers love all the passion that Ike and Taylor put into what they wrote .

happy 16th birthday to Abbie .

and Meet and Greet was bomb awesome I had 3 things in my mind to Tell Taylor and the Guys and one of my most important managed to come out . l : I was telling Taylor about how I had to persevere for 39 shows to see him solo , and somehow I deserved the biggest bear hug ever ! ❤❤️😀

So my DreaM has come true in a way I never expected my Obsessed moment concerning Hanson wasas a little girl was I wanted marry Taylor so much I was plotting dreaming what I was going to stand on to make myself tall enough to kiss him . So the hug at btti was a huge surprise . It kind of happened and I barelly remember hugging him . 💕❤but still means The world 😄
Dumbfounded . Flabbergasted . Thank you Tay .

When Carrie Anne N found Hanson part one .

May 10 1997
I found Hanson in very questionable place . My uncle had died less than 9 months earlier and he was just beginning to support my dream of singing . In fact our Final conversation w him was making Mariah Carey Jokes and the expensive coffee when he worked in computers in New York City . My Uncle Richard was like Vintage Isaac Hanson . he was Into music , Electric Guitars , computers and virtually any thing that communicated or made noise . In fact the first I heard Middle of Nowhere I was riding in a car visiting his kids for the first time after his death . I had nothing to say to the then 2 , 8 and 11 year old that would eventually sit before me . I didn't know what kind of Pain he was in because he never told us in the family .
Enter Hanson
Of course I had heard Mmmbop on the Radio by now . it was a fun catchy song .but it wasn't until my Ben introduced me to Hanson's other music that I realized Ike, Taylor ( always be my favorite ) , and Zac had something more to say that just a couple of Mmms and a Bop . This song was about the passage of minutes and time . to be precise Millimeters of time . The fast uptempo pace of the song clearly communicates that time is precious and time goes by way to fast .
Where's the Love ? the Second single from Middle of Nowhere reminds me of my me and mother . Taylor always reminds me that love is more than arguing . always .
Weird is very Close to my heart . .

"Weird" is also a turning point for me for the same reason .i never fit in at school because of said disability and now I never stand out as an adult who's qualified to do the job that some one with the same mental abilities can do just without the physical disabilities . I struggle with this but I'm getting a lot better . I actually talked to Taylor and managed to barely stutter this past time ! :)
Yearbook is my 2nd Favorite Taylor vocal performance ever . thats only because Never Let go and Never Love again finally blow it out of the water .
I could write a whole book about " I will Come to you " this song has comforted me more times that I can count . which is why singing it Taylor means the universe to me . Taylor;s voice has always been my happy place , my place of truth , release of emotion for sure ( I'm surprise d I didn't cry 1 iota during his solo show at BTTI . ) ; my place to be inspired by the fact that Hanson never gave up on their passion of music . he's kinda like the voice that has always been there for me no matter what . Ive never told him that in person , but maybe someday i'll get to .
With you in your dreams- I Couldn't help but think of Dr Patton this past acoustic performance at BTTI . he would be so proud of all I'm doing because he called it first . he would want me to keep fighting for my potential to be as normal as possible .
until Later Days . part two will be about this time around .
