I’ve decided to share my gigantic 2016 to do list (or at least a chunk of it) because y’all have been such a great support system over the years – attending shows, buying CDs and being good friends – I appreciate each and every one of you! At first I was a bit gun-shy sharing these goals and dreams with you – what if something on my list doesn’t come to fruition or I just plain fail miserably? Sometimes failing is a good thing and can lead to something even better so my list will ebb and flow and change, I’m sure.
Putting dreams out into the world somehow makes them seem more attainable and when family and friends cheer you on, even more so. Those dirty dishes will have to wait! Cleaning is one of my go to’s for procrastination or when fear starts creeping in (my house should be cleaner somehow!). I’ve quite a lot of dishes, so here goes, and, to quote my old pals, A Month of Sundays, “Dream Big!” Here is a smattering of goals… the list is too large and I don’t want to put you into a coma reading it all!
Keep working on guitar everyday and maybe be as good as Max some day… it could happen!
A tour of England and Ireland
Find new and interesting venues in which to perform
Write new songs with Max and on my own, especially for my next album which will be called Ohio Girl.
See more live music, especially new-to-me music
Attend the AMA conference in Nashville
Write and record 2-3 Christmas songs for a holiday EP
Spend more time with family in Ohio and friends
Go out and experience new things more – I used to go out all the time!
Go to Germany and France in the fall with my niece
Ride my bike more
Get my garden under control and have fun doing it.
Make new recipes from my small horde of cookbooks
Be more on top of family birthdays, sending out Christmas cards, etc. – I like real letters/mail!
Have songs licensed
Record the CD and all that goes with that.
Get my house painted!
Be ridiculously organized. Yes, I want to be Martha Stewart, Jr.
Have any dreams you’d like to share? I’d love to hear them so post below…
Big Dreams and Big Love,
