Behold, the return of the deadbeat blogger!
I mean, seriously. It’s embarrassing. I have been like an unfit mother – one who leaves her kids in the car while she hits up the Safeway for PBR and tampons. I have abandoned this blog in the parking lot for far too many days – and in the meantime, not written a single word of ANYTHING.
But really, can you blame me? I was busy fulfilling MY LIFE DREAM.
If you’ve been reading this site for longer than two minutes, you’ll know that I’m a songwriter, and that the jewel of my heart (um, yes, I just called it “the jewel of my heart” – so?) is the Bluebird Café. Back in October, when I was invited to play there (can we all just squeal one more time?), June 21 felt so far away. But before I knew it, my parents were flying in, Greta was surprising me on my doorstep the day before (listen – can you hear me scream?), I was trying on 96 different outfits, and then, all of a sudden, staring out at the lights.
This is what it looks like when dreams come true. (Thanks to Deb for the picture!)
And here are best friends.
And here are just a few of the most wonderful cheerleaders.
And here are amazing parents.
And here is a man with a mullet in a SweetTarts shirt.
Because this is Hootenannie.com – where the blogs end strong.
