Hello, and welcome! 

Many years ago, when I was about twelve, my grandpa asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. My answer was an enthusiastic, "I want to be a hippie!" I wouldn't say any of the adults in my family were exactly pleased with that answer, but what I meant and the vision they had in their minds were two different things. Had I been able to better articulate my desires for adulthood, I would have said, "I want to be one of those artistic types who wears what she wants and plays music and makes people feel happy." I don't know about making people happy, but with both feet firmly planted in adulthood, I've at least definitely got the clothes and music covered. Plus, I have the bonus of a great husband and four pretty incredible daughters.

As my daughters have grown and we've journeyed through homeschooling, we have incorporated music into our everyday life in a huge way. Family singalongs, learning to play different instruments, even writing songs together are things we do every day. I have taken this lifestyle for granted, not realizing that there are families out there who wish to bring music into their homes, but don't know where to begin. That realization combined with my love for traditional and folk music, has set me on a more purposeful path of late--while I love being a performing folk singer/songwriter, it's not as doable as it was pre-family. Songwriting time is limited, and night gigs at coffee shops, restaurants, and bars, are not exactly compatible with our current bedtime routine. I can however, make music in my house and share it with the masses! I hope that this method of living out my dream checks off the "Make People Happy" box of my requirements. Thanks for visiting--enjoy!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. 
Goals
$71 of $500 per month
Reaching this goal will enable me to have income solely devoted to moving forward with my music without taking out of the family budget-- everything from paid entertainment for the kids while I snag recording time, saving for disc productions, purchase of recording or PA equipment, and even includes cost of bottomless coffees during cafe songwriting binges!
