As is tradition here on Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, I thought it was high time that I did my 2013 year in review. Going back over this year's posts only reminded me that it's been a fairly quiet year here on ye old blogge but it's been so far from that in my day to day life - let me tell you! Between music, music, music, travel and several other endeavors my free time has been next to nil. As you may know, I started the year off by releasing my very first EP, Deal from the Bottom, making a video vignette for my first single and playing many shows. By about April it was clear that I wanted to finish writing and recording a full-length album and that lead to my decision to launch a Kickstarter Campiagn back in June. Thank you to all of you lovely readers who contributed to making that a success. You know who you are and you are my moon and stars! The album comes out in the next month and I could not be any more excited or nervous to share it with you! but... I will have to save that for another post.
As I was compiling photos it dawned on me that 2013 was a great year for my vintage collection. The only issue being that nearly none of it got any DJRD screen-time and I should remedy that in 2014. Our little house in the hills (with no closet space) is now filled to the brim. Some day soon, I wager, "the Brit" and I shall be sleeping on piles vintage dresses, antique costumes and feathers. Though, lets be honest, there are fates far worse that that!
2013 was a huge year for me and I am so excited to dive into 2014!! I hope all of you had a splendid holiday and I wish you the very best in 2014! It's crazy to think back to 2008 when I started this blog…so many people from the very beginning are still popping by but there are so many lovely new faces introducing themselves. Thanks for sticking it out even when the blog got put on the back burner!
