Sept is coming

The days of summer are slipping away. My daughter is turning 4 tomorrow but the big bash is today. :) The weather feels great here in Mo lately. 65-80 is right up my alley.

I played a show last night at Indian Hills Winery. Really great feeling show which is happening more lately. I don't know what's going on but the music just feels better than ever these days. I think everyone had a good time.

I'm really getting unsettled over the Grammy talk. I have NOT been nominated. NOT. I am ENTERED. I love everyones support but I don't think folks understand the process (I don't exactly either) and I don't want anyone thinking that I'm bragging when I say "I have material ENTERED in the Grammy's". Forgive me for the tantrum but it's getting exhausting. Entered, entered, entered.

I'm really excited about the local support I've gotten lately. Annie Lauries in Cape Girardeau is a fabulous antique store where I'm getting a lot of support and doing a show on Sept 4th. That one's going to be VERY cool. Laurie is an interior decorator of sorts and her place is not your run-of-the-mill antique shop. It's extra cool to just be in. Can't wait till Friday. If you come...bring wine. They don't serve but you can drink.

Well, I've gotta go get my Princess Party on.

Lots and lots of love.

I'm very fortunate to find such great people in my travels. Lately I've stumbled on some really fun shows as a result. I'm doing the Racanelli's Cucina show regularly now and I'd encourage anyone, anytime to check that out. Great outside stage on 'The Loop' in St. Louis just off the Washington U. campus. Lots of fun.
Also please stop in and see my first show at Annie Lauries in Cape Girardeau. That's Sept. 4th at 6pm. Normally the place is an antique shop ( a GREAT antique shop), but on the first Friday of the month, it becomes a great place to see live music or other entertainment, have a few glasses of wine and meet some unique people in a unique environment.
Headed to the south again next month for some shows and a video shoot. More about that later...I'm headed out to fish with the kids and maybe see my dad (been awhile). Hope everybody is fantastic today.

Lots of love

Photos, the website, etc

I've been up too late for a few days now. I'm trying to overcome the learning curve associated with today's technology...sick and tired of web 'designers' telling me that they either CAN'T do what I want them to or that they can for $6,000 has led me to become one. I'll design my own dang site! LOL
Anyway it's proving very rewarding. Getting the job done (allbeit slowly) and despite the constant hurdles I'm very happy with the direction it's going. Should have that up in a couple weeks tops.
When it launches I'm going to have some goodies for you guy/gals. More later on that.
Amid all the mayhem of changing everything I've booked a few shows and some of them are based on my friendship with Heather Luttrell from Atlanta. Take some time and check her out at
Well. Gotta get back after it...these sites don't design themselves ya know!

Lots and lots of love

I have officially become addicted to the unicycle. I borrowed one from a friend for a photo shoot and then decided to get at least comfortable on it for the shoot which has turned into an obsession. Crazy but I think the 11 year old in me has resurfaced. I've been wanting this ability for quite some time now. I'll post some pictures after the shoot's done.
Been visiting with my brother and his wife...wonderful people. Gotta hit the grocery store now, before my 13 year old's first day in the 8th grade (tomorrow). Gotta get the good breakfast on and all.

Well, that's tonight!
Lots and lots of love
