The first half of the year was a complete and utter whirlwind. Right after Sundance I flew to Dublin to join 'the Brit' and our friend Lucette on tour (supporting the Secret Sisters in the UK). Once I came down from that cloud of rock n' roll wonderfulness I had a pile of blog collaborations and photo projects to handle plus a last minute trip New York to hang out with friends and play tourists with my family. I'm longing to move there...not to far down the road, I hope. That said, few things are as lovely as the LA spring and we were lucky enough to share it with some UK and Seattle pals who came down for an Easter-time visit. Much to my delight this included many trips to the beach AND a trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth". Then is was up to the mountains for a little birthday escape in June.
I spent the second part of the year working on a very exciting project -- one that has been a long time coming-- I recorded some songs in the studio for my first EP which is coming out soon, I promise. Even more out of town guests came to visit, I went to many many fashion and music related events (and, ok, I admit it, I went to Disneyland...again), got political!, spent time with my good friends, probably drank a little too much on occasion, and patiently awaited cooler weather as LA went through an extreme autumn heatwave. Not in the montage but to close it all off the Brit's parents flew in and spent Christmas with my big crazy family up in the mountains of Idaho. Oh, and the world did not end, which was good.
I haven't really managed to catch my breath from 2012 yet but I've got a good feeling about 2013. As usual, HUGS to all you readers who have kept me blogging all this time! xoxodjrd
