About a bazillion years ago (2003) I was an urban-folk singer-songwriter hell bent on writing and performing songs that drew people together.
I had a little record. I had combat boots. I had a car with a million miles on it. I had ideals.
Somehow, I also had an extremely talented artsy-bass-playing-song-writing-theatre-obsessed husband who was along for the ride.
This is me about then:
Now, I had been told by doctors that I would never have children. So, I was thrilled. For about 15 seconds.
Then I was terrified. Devastated, maybe. This was Not.The.Plan.
Evidently, not-the-plan grew on me. Fast forward 12 years and here I am: the accidental and unsuspecting matriarch of a family of seven. Four girls and one boy, all living together with that same artsy-bass-playing-song-writing-theatre-obsessed husband, in Nashville, TN.
I don’t write songs often anymore. But I’m still hell bent on drawing people together.
This blog is my living room. The place I share stories, and occasionally advice, gleaned from a decade of living a rich, art-filled, big family life on peanuts.
