It's 2 weeks before Thanksgiving & this blog is WAY over apologies but blogs are not my thing...but it's Saturday, I was supposed to be at the church yard sale but woke up to rain...the dogs are fed and out and I've had my first cup of coffee so here goes...

This year has been one filled with God and blessings every turn I make...I began the year with recording sessions for, my debut Christian cd ...not only did we sell through the first 1000 ordered, but I'm now being referred to as a Christian artisit! The summer was 24/7 music: restaurants, weddings, festivals, churches, fund raisers and more recording sessions for the Christmas cd, which finally became A Christmas to Remember. My cat Nikki died during my sessions so a portion of the proceeds from that cd will go to Feline Hope,, our local cat rescue organization here in the Outer Banks of NC...she does make herself known through spirit every now and then. The summer brought lots of old friends back to the venues I sang at and lots of new friends were made as well...I love singing outside during the summer on the gazebos watching the geese, turtles, dolphins, kids and of course the is just the most beautiful setting to sing in (other than the woods)...we had many dance competitions on the gazebos among our young visitors this season ...I'd love to bottle their energy! I went back to Nashville in September to finish recording A Christmas to Remember.

In conjunction with the Christmas cd, we published a recipe booklet of holiday desserts my sisters (wait till they see these photos!) and I grew up with...gathering the recipes and photos for this project from family was a about memory lane! They really are great tasting treats and the photos are a trip! In the spirit of Thanksgiving we are donating the profits from the sale of this project to America's Second Harvest; a wonderful organization working with corporate America, mom & pop businesses, volunteers and schools to fight hunger here in the US. Check out their web site for more info:

I'm working on the 2008 schedule...if you'd like to suggest any venues, please email me ...I'd love to hear from you as well...I'm on the road through November and home for December (as of now). The sun is now out, it has stopped raining...time to take Winston (my dog) for his morning walk...see you on the road...thank you for your continued support and affirmation of my music...thank you for receiving it as my gift to you! May your blessings be abundant and may you be thankful for all that comes your way...

peace ~k
