We Play in the Loveliest Places

My husband and I recently spent 12 days on the road, singing for our supper. We played in Rock Springs, Wyoming and Boise, Idaho, then took three days off in Glacier National Park in Montana. Wow. If you visit no other National Park in your lifetime, make it this one. It was genuinely hard for me to leave. In three days, I saw more wildflowers and wildlife than I’ve ever seen in all of the other parks I have visited combined. We saw several bears, mountain goats, elk, deer, a snowshoe hare, a moose, osprey, and more. After Glacier National Park, we performed in Nederland, Colorado, as well as three stops in Nebraska. 4000 miles later, we are glad to be home. Enjoy the slideshow — a tiny glimpse of what life is like on the road. :)

Happy Anniversary to Walker and Allison!

One year ago today, Allison and Walker were married at Walnut Grove Farm, the same farm where my husband and I just happened to exchange vows. Allison and Walker are an amazing couple. In the past year, they have shared some pretty intense heartache and yet, through it all, their love of family and joy for life came shining through. I just wanted to take a moment to celebrate these two gentle souls. So Happy Anniversary, you wacky, beautiful kids!
