Summer ends and Fall begins!

Hi Everyone, I hope you are enjoying the start to fall!

This summer I had an incredible tour. Great venues, fun shows, amazing get the idea. It was so easy for me to write my blog every day because I was so grateful and inspired! I knew that there were people reading, I had so many stories from the road, and I enjoyed hearing from everyone. be honest...I got to pretend I was a rock star just for a moment.

Here I am signing a "Singing for Hope" t-shirt!

As soon as I returned home, I got a little bored. I was also a little bummed that all of you weren't there with me. I was just home alone and back to normal. It was great for a few days, but then what?

I needed to get out of the house. So where did I head off to? I know you'll be shocked...Mexico! I spent two weeks helping to build a school, and it was SO much fun. I got to hike in the mountains, hang out with some great kids, and meet new friends that were volunteering as well!

Here I am hiking some support boards up to make the walls of the school.

I even got to give away a few cds. I'm not sure what the kids will do with this one, but it should make a good frisbee...

After returning home from Mexico (Bryan had been there all summer...) it was time for a break. So we took almost two weeks off to hang out, sleep, build bonfires, eat, etc. at my parents' cottage. It was excellent!

Now I'm back in the swing of things. Ready to work, sing, and play, which is good timing because I have a HUGE show coming up! On October 22, I'm going to be hosting a new CD party to celebrate the release of "Singing for Hope." If you live in the CT area, I really hope you can make it! It will be at 7 p.m. at the Southport Galleries on Pequot Ave. Come one and all!

To help promote the show, and just for fun, I'm going to be making weekly videos of songs that I love to sing. If you have a suggestion, e-mail me! It can be one of my songs, or a cover. I'm always up for a challenge! This first week is "Wildflowers" by Tom Petty.

As always, many thanks for your support. Enjoy the video, come to a show, and as always, let me know how you're doing as well! I hope it's no surprise - I love hearing from you!

Have a great afternoon, Kristen
