Happy December everyone!  I'm nesting in Ohio for most of the winter.  I've done so much traveling this year that staying in one spot feels like a great new adventure. 

There's a new album in the works, and for now I offer up this single. "That's Enough"...

After many miles, I am happy to report that I have played some great shows, driven some long hours, seen some beautiful places, and safely landed back in Ohio...

The last few weeks have been jam packed with desert adventures.  There's another blog post to come about where I've been and what I've been up to, but for now I'm dedicating this post to all of the wildflowers I've been falling in love with.  Scroll along and don't forget to stop and smell the lupine...
