Embrace Duets

Emily turned me on to Embrace the Camera on Thursdays where we moms get ourselves in a photo with our kids. It's so true that we take most of the pictures and aren't in any of them! She said that one day our kids will really appreciate these photos of their moms! Well, this couldn't be more true as my father just sent me this photo of me and my mom and I'm more than thankful to have it.I grew up singing in church, mostly with my mom. We used to sing a duet every Christmas Eve and I have so many fond memories of sharing a mic with my mom! I had no idea that we actually had a picture of us singing together until my dad sent me this!

Last weekend I was asked to sing at a Christmas Tea and whereas music used to be a very big part of my life, it has taken a back seat for the past 9 years, so I was very nervous. My mom just happened to be in town and joined me at the tea to hear me sing. If only we had more time to rehearse, I would have had her join me on stage! (Notice how in both photos I'm wearing a bow on my left hip. Somethings never change!)
