Once upon a time...ok, more like 12 years ago, I was a singer in a rock and roll band.
Ahh my twenties! Weekends of gigging. Performing the 10pm to 2am shift at local bars with my best friends. Of course back then I was always tired, often grumpy, and really had no clue how wonderful that time was.
Fast forward to today. Being a working Mommy for a special needs kid, working hard at being a good wife, and still trying to maintain a self-identity...I am more exhausted now then back then. Biggest difference: I know and appreciate how wonderful it all is.
So when the idea of having a band reunion came up, I thought, why not?!
One of the other band members has a son who is also on the Spectrum. And because this show would be more about fun and reuniting, the idea of turning it into a fundraiser seemed to make the most sense.
Now, I have not performed AT ALL since maybe 2006...pre-Jonathan. So I have some work ahead of me. But have missed singing, more the I really realized. And now, I feel like I'm singing for a reason.
March 30th at the House of Blue in Cleveland, OH. A fundraiser for Autism Speaks.

I will be singing with my son in my mind and heart. He inspires me so much. It feels amazing to be working towards something so positive and with purpose and passion.
Feel free to donate towards the event, if you are so inclined. The fundraising page is for those that would not be able to make it to the show, or for those that purchase tickets, but want to donate more. All ticket sales will go to Autism Speaks as well.
Life is good.
