good music / an announcement

first of all, thank you all so much for your sweet and kind words and thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. i can't tell you how much it means to me.
i have an announcement!  i am performing at the dickens festival in december! the dickens festival is where people dress up in victorian era (is that the right era for charles dickens?) and people come with goods and treats and sell them.  its a so much fun!  when i was in high school, i performed at this festival a few years in a row.  i would do a half hour set on a stage by myself singing Christmas songs and i loved it.  its been a long time since i did it, but i can't wait to get back in the saddle again.  and i am doing a completely new set, so i am really excited! the above picture is when we went last year.
i am also so really excited for the festival of trees!  i wanted to perform there too but i waited too long and now they are all full up so im on the waiting list.  
some really good music came out this week!  sia and lady gaga!  i have been listening to sia but haven't listened to lady gaga yet, but i've heard her singles and loved them.

because we are saving for our trip to NYC, we dont want to spend money on costumes so i am just going to wear a black dress and funky tights and a hat because it's cheap and yes it's overdone but i don't care. what are you going as at halloween? i can't wait to halloween! its one of my favorites!


  1. I'm going to wear something similar on Halloween I think! Simple but still festive! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. So sorry to hear of the loss of your grandmother. May her memory be eternal.

  3. Losing a grandparent can be hard, I have only one grandparent still living thankfully it is the one grandparent I have always been really close to although she is 96 and has Alzheimer's so usually doesn't know who I am but I still go visit her every week.

  4. I listened to Gaga's album in its entirety this morning. It's so good! I need to listen to Sia next.

  5. I'm glad you're getting through and that you have a good support network around you.

    Also, the Dickens festival sounds like so much fun!!!


Hearing from you makes my day!!
