… i was born….
(thanks mom + dad!)
…i sang coming out of the womb. i sang at my first holy communion in front of 300 people in a church when i was seven. i sang every single christmas carol ever. for everyone. my whole life. i sang karaoke + i sang at parties. around twelve years old i got into theater programs and sang in all of them. i started in the chorus + sang in choirs + groups for years + years. around my sophomore year of high school i started to get more confidence and better roles in the school plays….
….then i started playing guitar and piano and singing my own songs about love + life. i never stopped. i never gave up. not everyone liked my voice + my songs my whole life… + they still dont…i still don’t give up. i still don’t stop….
…three years ago today i moved to los angeles…
…i moved here with one suitcase, one guitar, and one big fat scary dream. i was sooo homesick. i cried every night…. but i kept singing… and writing… and waitressing and working hard…
… always. work. hard.
thank you for all your birthday wishes.
i absolutely love you.
