I got married two weeks ago. It was amazing and wonderful and one of my happiest days. I got to sing the song I wrote about him during our reception. Great friends played the music and officiated (Thank you Amanda West, Otter Creek Duo and Rev. Kelly Ryan ♡). We had a field of purple tulips and a tower of gold cupcakes. We made a playlist that included Joni Mitchell and Morphine songs. It was beautiful!
Then we went on a honeymoon to Bryce Canyon where we reveled in the hoodoos and peekaboos…
For the last meal of our honeymoon, on our way home along Utah’s most spectacular mountain and red rock enshrined Hwy 12 we ate this fantastic brunch at Hell’s Backbone Grill. Oh yeah… shirred eggs, sage butter and biscuits and gravy… You really should go.
A few days after we returned we played at the Garage on Beck in North Salt Lake for the second time. I’m loving having Craig play his upright bass on some of my songs. I became an immediate aunt to five when we got married. Our nephew sent us his Flat Stanley to take on an adventure. So his Flat Stanley went to our performance at the Garage on Beck.♡ Thanks to the gamely crowd for posing so well!
You can see my upcoming shows down below….Next up is a Family Concert sponsored by the Intermountain Acoustic Music Association on May 13th and then a house concert at Kris Thorne’s on May 14th, which is Mother’s Day. In early June I’ll drive north to Montana for a week of shows, (including one with Amber Ikeman) returning to share the stage with Bronwen Beecher and Tara Shupe for a powerhouse songwriters in the round gig on June 17th. Yes! A week or so later, I’ll head to Colorado for a few shows in the Steamboat Springs area…and then gratefully…I’ll come home to the Salt Lake Valley.
I’m hoping to launch a few new projects this summer. Hopefully one of them in time for my birthday on June 4th. I intend to write a book. More on that soon…
Wishing you love and a happy May.
