Greetings my friends! Can you believe that we are in the midst of the Holiday season?! Getting really excited (and hungry) for Thanksgiving! And then it's Christmas! Holy smokes, this is happening!

I just noticed my last blog post was back in October, such a slacker. Well not really, actually I am blogging up a storm over on The Girls with Glasses and Disney's as a style contributor. Can we talk about how much work blogging is? That is it's own post. Anywho, I do have a great deal of catch up to do here. The deal is, you can expect a fresh new face here soon on as I am getting ready for a brand new, prettier, higher functioning site that will encompass everything I love, music, motherhood, real life talk, style, art (i've been painting a lot these days... another post), home stuff etc. Until then, there's not a whole lot going on here, and I'm bummed about that.

But there are a few wonderful festive and lovely things in the works. First, this fun show that I am so happy to be putting on for the folks of Southern California on December 18, 2013. This is the one and only live show I am doing during the Holiday season, and I am going all out. It is going to be at a gorgeous venue in Thousand Oaks, The Civic Arts Plaza. There will be a grand piano, a full band, the works. I am practicing everyday cause I don't get out there and play like I used to (another post) so I just want to be ready and really deliver something special. If you live around these parts I would love for you to join us for a merry night of music! Tickets are available now on! 

Okay, so my plan was to play a show in my home state of Arizona and then one somewhere in the heart of Utah, however that plan just didn't come together! Bummer! Maybe someday I'll make some money and will take this whole show on the road and get over to the east coast. Until then, I found a way to come to you and be everywhere in the world at the same time and play a little show for you! Have you ever heard of ? Basically it is an internet venue, where you log on, pay what you want, it can be as little as 10 cents to a dollar or whatever you wish, and you can join me where you are for an acoustic Christmas show with my three piece band! I will also be chatting with y'all and it should be a lovely time. That will be Tuesday, December 10th at 5:30 pm PST. Click here for all the details!

London's first time to Disneyland!
All in all, life is just a feast, so much to partake of everyday, sometimes I am so full and don't feel I can take another bite, but I do, because I am grateful for the abundance of opportunity, love and creative inspiration. My family is at the heart of my existence, I am trying with diligence to make them first, it is a substantial part of the reason I am not on the road, in the studio everyday or on a set somewhere. Of course I am still creating everyday, but I do what I can, and I keep it close to home. Close to my London, who turned 18 months this very day. How is this possible? This time is short. Being present in my marriage and my little ones life over the last year and a half has been worth the sacrifices, and that is what I am most grateful for this Thanksgiving.

Thanks to you for caring, reading, watching, listening and connecting with me as I travel along this interesting and challenging terrain known as real life! I wish to you the happiest Thanksgiving filled with people you love, and food that is delicious.

PS- Oh yes, and check back soon for my "12 days of Christmas"! Also follow along over on Instagram


  1. I think you are amazing for understanding the concept that there is nothing more important or more great than what you do at home with your family...Creating is important and creating life and memories and time is the most important of all...Just my 2 cents. :)

  2. First of all You have life by the horns and are smart enough to grab it! You have a wonderful family that is the most important family. Secondly, you and your music is worth more than.10 and Thirdly I just cannot believe you do not have all kinds of concerts in all kinds of cities going on. I am glad you are happy you deserve it!

  3. What a great photo and great message. It can be so hard to appreciate what we have in the present, thanks for the great reminder. I'll have to look into the online show! :) We've got two concerts out of town that week (Bastille and Celtic Woman Christmas Symphony Performance), but this one should be easy to make happen! -Alexandra Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  4. Thank you for being the caring and sharing person that you are. You care enough about your family to do what is necessary to stay close to them. You care enough about your fans to share your sweet thoughts with us and keep us in touch with you. ♥♥

  5. Loving your bangs! And love your words too. It is such a sacrifice to be a mom, but totally worth it!
