Back in the States and Excited to Perform!

On Tuesday, I returned to Wisconsin after an amazing week in Ireland! (Don’t worry! A post with beautiful pictures from my trip will be coming soon!)

I returned to Wisconsin feeling soo relaxed! But I was super shocked by the weather change. When I left Wisconsin, people didn’t need jackets, but when I returned, I wish I had had mittens!

If you are in Wisconsin, did it snow by you yesterday? It snowed a little in Madison 😦 Snow in October probably means another long winter…

No more talk about my least favorite season.

Here’s the latest on the progress of TEMPTATION. Since I was in Ireland for a week, I didn’t have time to work on my music or visit the recording studio. But if you remember from my most recent posts, I was having a nasty bout of writer’s block…and I think taking a vacation was the answer.

A week out of the country, escaping  the stresses of everyday life, was absolutely refreshing!

My body is still getting used to Wisconsin time again, but since I am feeling so rejuvenated, I hope I will feel inspired again to finish writing the songs for TEMPTATION.

Although I didn’t make progress on writing or recording, I do have some exciting news about my music: I get to do my third show!

Next Saturday, I will be opening for the super talented Jimmy Murn. We will be performing at the Froth House. The Froth House is the coffee shop that I had my first show at!
