In Our Bones turns 1 today 💞
🥂
With what this album, and the band Against The Current, means to me, today is a happy day to celebrate!
✨
Over the past year, IOB was the soundtrack to my life, at the core of adventures near and far, physical and metaphysical, spiritual and unbelievable.
✨
In addition to my love for the music, the words expressed and sentiments conveyed resonate deeply. I've learned a great deal about life, love, and myself. It's been a transcendent journey!
✨
In Our Bones is in my bones, my heart and soul.
A light that shines Forevermore.

The first 7 episodes of Season 2 of Against The Current were absolutely brilliant!
The adventures undertaken and the magic of those days/nights will be remembered forever. I had so much fun!

ATC is on a mid-season break though I'm looking forward to some fall/winter episodes. In the meantime, I may find myself daydreaming about cherished moments w/ my favorite band.
💗 💡🏠
Happy Mother's Day!
Just arrived to Boston where I'm wrapping up one of my favorite weekends ever and am reminiscing about one of my other favorite weekends ever, one I shared with my Mom. She always wanted to go to the NE in the fall to see the changing leaves in all their glorious colors and I always wanted to visit Boston and Vermont so we made a long weekend of it (also scoped out New Hampshire). She's also a fan of lighthouses so we went to Nantucket one afternoon. The weather was perfect and the island was charming. We had a great time. When I talked to her today, we reminisced and talked about where to go on our next trip. I miss her but I'll be seeing her soon. 🤘🏻🤘🏻
Last two nights with Against The Current at Irving F*ckin Plaza were an absolute blast!! They were AMAZING, the crowd was super hyped...it was so much fun! Hearing Gravity, Runaway, Running With The Wild Things, Roses and Wasteland in NYC made it truly special! Will forever remember these 2 nights.
