It’s been over a month, and it’s two days late, but I am finally back with a new episode! This last month has been one of the most challenging since I began pursuing my dream. That’s why I haven’t been as active on the podcast and the blog. But there are a lot of exciting things still in the works. I think I’ve aged a year or two in the last month due to stress but I am clinging to God to get me through and I am thankful that He has continued to provide for me and my family even if I am often too blinded by my anxiety to see it.

What an incredibly satisfying feeling to have finally accomplished this goal which has been over 6 years in the making. My in-laws were kind enough to take our kids for the weekend so that we could focus on the move.
It was a long and tiresome process. Not only that, but it always seems that I have a gig the night we move. So I proceeded to make the hour long drive to Quakertown to perform with my dad after nearly 12 hours of loading and unloading furniture and boxes. We performed for four grueling hours and then I made the 1 hour drive back home to arrive safely in my new driveway at 2:45am. About 20 hours since I’d woken up the day before. But it was all worth it!
You know why? Because I can finally grill again. Oh the assortment of meats that will be grilled
