Sunday Serenades: A live concert series on Instagram.

I’ve always been a woman of many passions, a “Jill-of-all-trades,” if you will. My struggle with having so many creative outlets has been my inability to hone in on one of them and go all the way. I always felt like being told to choose “one thing” meant I was sacrificing one part of myself at the expense of another. Then, one day I decided that I shouldn’t have to choose—and thus, my blog was born.  I vowed to make my blog a safe space to express ALL the forms of my creativity. From cooking tips to crafts, to plant caregeneral life advice, recipes, and essay writing. I’ve done it all with great success. However, there has been one element missing up until now… my music.

IMG_8157Musical expression has been such a huge part of my life, and yet, it’s been something that I’ve kept to myself, unsure of how to share this particular gift with the world. Then, I got an idea to start doing live performances called “Sunday Serenade Series ” over on my Instagram. Every Sunday at 5:00pm (L.A. time), I choose a song to sing to anyone who decides to tune in. It’s such a fun, interactive, and creative way to share my music. I’m so thankful that after years of uncertainty, I have finally found an outlet that is so unique and personal to my journey.

    That “Redbone” cover was NICE! I’m gonna have to go over to Instagram and check you out. I often wish I would have played an instrument. I’m going to make sure my son has those chances.

    Beautiful singer and photography. Blogging is an outlet for me as well and one of the reasons why I started mine.
