five shows in two days.
and i was out way too late last night.
but honestly, working kid’s shows is just so beautiful. something about the uncomplicated happiness they encompass when they’re submerged in the music and the show—- it’s so perfect to me. it makes everything worth it. and the parents we help are beyond thankful and gracious.
yesterday, i made contact with a long lost relative through one of the guys at the show. it was mind-blowing—- waking up to a text from her this morning was unreal. i’m a little overwhelmed and choked up at the idea of having some family on the west coast. maybe it’ll make me feel a little closer to home.
i miss home a lot right now. i could use a nap with my pups or a play date with my niece.
the music industry is such a small knit family. i bumped in to two friends i’ve toured with who work at the venue we were at. and ran in to another friend last night at the show. it’s amazing to be a part of.
i don’t take any of this for granted. i know i’m terribly far from home and that’s honestly probably the hardest thing right now. everything else that’s an issue is one that will work itself out with time. things are never going to be perfect. but i’ve worked so hard to get to where i am right now and for the first time, i can really see it. i can really see the path behind me and i’m paving the path ahead of me. it’s been a long journey, and there’s way more ahead.
