I couldn’t have been happier to read this post today: Things I am Afraid to Tell You over at one of my favorite bogs, coco+kelley. I feel like it might turn into the next It Gets Better with everyone airing out their dirty laundry all over the internet. It’s one of my pet peeves about blogs— particularly with female bloggers—and it’s something I’ve been wary of here: showing only the clean, happy, pretty with none of the ugly, tormented failure.

You might remember this older post of mine where I vented and ranted profusely about social media, blogs and the ways in which we have carelessly manipulated them into an anxiety-ridden game of telephone on the internet. I’m glad to know I’m not alone.  coco+kelley is listing several bloggers who are taking part. I hope to add my name to the list.

For mother’s day I thought I’d share a sweet lullaby I’ve been working on called Everything. Throughout the process of writing the song, the idea of the song shifted and changed several times, and I was ultimately inspired by the theme of unconditional love; particularly the love of a parent. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! Thank you for everything.

Since before I met you
You’ve had a place in side of me
All my love is yours forever I give to you

Every little waking moment

When you think no one is thinking of you

I’m very excited to announce that in a little less than a month I’ll be playing at Mudhouse in Crozet with Ashley McMillen. Ashley is a country-inspired singer-songwriter— her voice and her songs will knock your socks off! She is truly one of my favorite artists and Cville and she couldn’t be a nicer person.

In honor of Mother’s Day, you should head over to her web site and check out her song “Momma” and my personal favorite, “Poor Thing.” And, while you’re at it, you should like her Facebook page. Why stop there? RSVP to our event on Facebook and let us know that you’ll be there!

I’ve been working on a lot of new songs recently— one, in fact, that I hope to post this weekend! And, I’m very eager to share them and get them out into the world. I’m very lucky to say that Willie DE, an amazing songwriter and guitar genius, will accompany me. It’s going to be a fantastic night. Hope to see you there!
