Let 2013 begin!

2013 already! Time flies doesn’t it! Reflecting back on 2012, I must admit it was a pretty great year! Here are my special highlights:

Jan. – Cuba for the first time! It was also Dave and I’s first trip together - what a great time!
Feb. – I got to know the artist Blue Blue Satellite and opened for him in Toronto. He’s an awesome musician and I’m extremely thankful for his friendship!
Mar. – Traveled to Argentina with work! Organized the first International Women’s Day annual concert – Brea Lawrenson and Braiden Turner joined me to make this event a great success. Played at Junofest. Got interviewed by TFO.
Apr. – Shows, shows, and more shows.
May – I became an aunt for the second time - welcome Zoe! Started recording my cd with Dean Watson. Camping with friends!
June – Traveled to Geneva. My best friend got married. Dave and I drove all the way to Wawa, Ontario and back in five days to film my video for Lake Superior!

Dec. – Finished my first semester of school! TFO interview in Toronto with special appearance in their holiday special! Christmas with family and friends: sleigh ride, great food and wine, lots of laughs and cool gifts!

I’ve got lots of projects for 2013, which I’ll share with you soon enough! What I can say is that, if 2012 was busy…2013 will be even busier! Here’s a word cloud I made to help me visualize my goals for the New Year. It’s a really fun experiment to do! (Click here to come up with your own 2013 word cloud!)


I hope you can join me on this adventure!
