Up All Night With Jon Pardi

My favorite local country station, WPOR, hosted an invite only event with Jon Pardi on their private stage. Only way in was to win! I entered via text nearly every day, of course! During this past week, the Universe has provided me with so many awesome opportunities and blessings, and I am so grateful this was one of them!

My first time seeing Jon Pardi was in December of 2013, and I will just nicely state that I wasn’t too impressed. Apparently during this show he was suffering from a knee injury and awaiting surgery in a few days, so I blamed his performance on this. Poor guy was probably in some pain! So I knew that I needed to give him the opportunity to redeem himself in my book next time he came around! Whether it is merely more stage experience over the past year or the fact that he was no longer in need of surgery, Jon definitely impressed me and won me over this time around!

Until one of my friends encouraged me to find a way to do just that…

Blogging 101 Assignment: Who I Am & Why I’m Here

So I’m hoping to get the blog really rolling with this new year, and I decided to sign up for a “Blogging 101” course in hopes of giving me the motivation and focus that I need. I’m still fairly new in this whole blogging world and would like to get myself out there to more potential country music lovers!

One of my main goals for 2015 is to focus more on progress rather than perfection… which for me means stop hoarding my 17 unfinished drafts that don’t seem “perfect enough to post” and start getting more of my stories and experiences out there! Being a perfectionist is most of the times a curse… ok probably more like all of the time! So this year I’m really trying to look past that and just accept things being “good enough.”
