Life is what happens…

“Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans…”

That famous line from a Beatles’ song completely captures my  life this summer so far…

I am now the mother of TWO high school boys! I am so proud of them; they are growing into fine young men. As I watch them begin to think about their future plans, I think about where I was at their ages–the thoughts I was thinking.  It was a lifetime ago, and worlds of experience lie between that time and today.  I’m excited for them and their dreams…and scared.  I cherish the time I have with them NOW more than ever, and most of my time is focused on them right now…

On the music front, I continue to squeeze in a little time to write song new songs. It’s such a therapeutic release for some difficult emotions… I look forward sharing new songs at my summer shows…

I’ve added two new shows to my schedule this summer including a new venue.  August 22nd at 6:00pm will be my debut performance at the Cafe O’play In Stow, Ohio.  It is a family friendly venue that has a wonderful play area for kids while adults can enjoy cafe style entertainment and service.  I am excited to be a part of this positive local business and can’t wait to see as many of you as possible!! Bring your kids and let’s pack the place!

My next show will be at Coffee Corners in Burton, Ohio, on July 18th at 7:00pm.  This is where I got started playing in public places and I’m grateful for the chance to play there again… They feature a full coffee bar with pastries, cheesecake, and, of course, local wines.  Schedule a date night with the hubby or have a girls night out!  This charming shop is a rare gem and well worth the drive to Burton.

Well that’s all for now! Keep “fighting the good fight!”

We will see you this summer!!
