I try really hard not to live too much in the future, worrying about what’s next and not appreciating today. But my September calendar needs to go away already.  It was just full. Don’t get me wrong. It was a good month! It was perhaps the most steady…

On July 31st, I looked at my August calendar and practically had a panic attack. The calendar on my phone has red blocks for my schedule, and all I saw was that there were only four days without red in them. Four. I got tired just thinking about what was…

On Feb. 14, 1997, I attended my first concert, and in a roundabout way, it started me on the path that is my life now. It lead me to going to Fan Fair that year and declaring I wanted to someday do something that kept me close to country music. Then I…

My husband came home today after being on the road for over a month. And he came home to a wife who has had the Christmas Spirit better than she has in years. (Uhm. That would be me, for anyone not following along.) When my husband was offered the tour…

I realize as I sit down here to write, I haven’t posted a blog since September. That’s unheard of for me. As someone who at one time journaled daily, to go two and a half months without writing at all  just sounds absurd. The fact is… life happens. I…

Last night I angrily wrote out a Facebook post in a notepad app on my phone. I had my husband read it. He said I should go ahead and post it. But just before hitting send, I backed out of it. I wanted time to let my feelings settle down a little. I wanted…
