No Subject Really

Dear You,

I thought you may be wondering what I have been up to lately. (At least I hope you are...mainly for dignity's sake as I've been wondering what you've been up to. For starters, I've been a busy little missy. Over the past few months, I've visited friends in Chicago, kayaked and met new friends in Pittsburgh, been to Glacier TWICE!, attended the ever famous Augusta Rodeo, played and sang at two weddings, traveled to Utah for my cousin's wedding, saw Ani DiFranco in concert, went camping, got a nasty cold, played beauty shop and of course, spent several hours playing.

But enough of that. I've been thinking about you and hope you are well, safe and happy. As for me, just know that I am well. And safe. And yes, happy. I can hardly believe that August is almost here. For one, because it means summer is quickly leaving. And two, because it's almost my birthday...yikes. Even though you're not going to be here for my birthday, it's okay. I'm sure you're off doing whatever it is people like you do.

And as funny as it sounds, in some ways I'm glad the time is passing so quickly. Because that means I'm closer to seeing you. And I can hardly wait!

Thank you to a Sunday evening viewing of Titanic for the following...

"A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets."

How true is that? I know my heart is full of them (except that I tend to wear it on my sleeve, so things that I think are "secret" are probably not as secret as I like to think. But we'll just roll with that for now, mainly for dignity's sake.)

What's your secret?

I Heart Montana

Alright, I'm sure that you already know how much I love Montana (from the title of my blog and the fact that I am making my life here.)

But every once in a while, I am reminded of some of the reason's why I love Big Sky Country. I just spent the last few days up in Whitefish/Flathead Lake/Glacier Park working with a crew from Ireland. And, I would like to add, had the best time with them! Absolutely a delight to work with and I certainly hope our paths cross again in the future. As part of our time "up north" we did a variety of activities and worked with some fabulous are some photos of the last several days...And a reminder of why I love Montana. And the Irish!

ps-There are cowboys in one of the shots--I've hit the jackpot!

Think About It...

Isn't it amazing how you can miss someone you hardly know?

Summer Lovin'

Alright, I don't have any particular summer lovin' of my own, but since it is the middle of summer, that title seemed appropriate. Plus, I'm real tired, so the "creative genius" that is my blog (ha ha) is not really running. Apparently it's off taking a nap somewhere. So instead, I'll just fill you in on the happenings of late in the world of Tia.

First off, things are good. Life is good and apparently there are people out there falling in love. How do I know? Well, I just hit up my third wedding of the season! Which, by the way, all of them were beautiful and lovely and I even had the honor of singing at two of them. :) Good times and congrats to all the beautiful couples!

Second, summer is half-way over and I feel like I'm not really sure when it even got here or how it is now the middle of July. But I have officially started a "Summer To Do List" of things I need to accomplish before Labor Day.

Third, for those of you who are curious about blue eyes, he is good. Although he is still not in my car (as he's off taking care of other business), he is still as cute as ever.

Third, my achilles' heel has been acting up again. Dang it.

Fourth, I get to spend a few days at the end of this week with some people from the Motherland and I'm pretty stoked about it. I just hope I can understand what they're saying...understanding Irish accents are not one of my strengths. (Just ask my sissy---she had to translate for me when we were visiting our family.)

And finally, I am getting tan. I've decided I look much better with a little color as opposed to the clear skin tone I usually have. You are all very welcome as you will no longer be blinded by my clear/albino tendencies.

Until next time---hugs and kisses.

I Heart Cowboys

Alright I'll say it. I love me some cowboys.

There's just something about them that gets me! I'm not sure if it's their sweet smiles, belt buckles, sparkly eyes or the touch of mystery associated with the cowboy way of life, but whatever it is, it's working. And it's coming straight for me and there's not a thing I can do about it. Keep it up cowboy, keep it up.
