A look back at the last three years feels like watching people puck on a roller coaster. From divorce to losing my job to a failing industry, starting a business, transitioning the children from homeschooling to public school and maybe back again, a new dog, a new house, a different state, and trying to adjust to a very different financial situation makes it hard to feel like I'm enough. I feel more like crawling under a rock. But I've been getting through it thanks to a few loyal friends who kindly remind me that I truly am enough, that my children are amazing because of me and that I'm an amazing person. You are awesome! Now it's time to look in the mirror and say those things to myself, I'm enough! But even harder is turning the camera on myself, yikes!... I usually leave it up to my kids to fill up this blog with cute photos. So here it goes....
Surrounded by my children's artwork makes me smile.
"The Mrs. will be releasing their debut EP this fall. Although the music may sound like what’s being played on pop radio right now, the lyrics tell a different story. As women in their late thirties/early forties, songs about teenage heartbreak and wild nights clubbing weren’t things they could relate to. They decided to write about their own lives - like the challenge of juggling a career, marriage, motherhood and friendships, while still trying to maintain their own identity. They set out to foster a connection through their music with other women at the same place in their lives. The Mrs. is comprised of drummer Andra Liemandt, lead vocalists/guitarists Mandy Prater and Jennifer Zavaleta, vocalist/keyboardist Larissa Ness, and bassist Jenny Mason."
What a fun video!
