Hi, everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the summer. I had a great holiday weekend with Joe and the kids down on the shore! The weather was amazing! I met so many fans this weekend and just want to say I love you guys! What incredible people you all are.

Wow, I can’t believe we are almost halfway through the season already. It is going by so fast! 

So you get to see a little more of my musical journey on this episode. Music has always been my first love...until I met Joe and had my kids. I love to sing and I love to create music, but nothing will ever come before my family.  They will always be my first priority. My clock doesn’t tick without them. With that said, I’m so happy to have the support from my husband and my kids to give me the OK to follow my dreams. When I married Joe and had my children I just wanted to be a mommy and a wifey! I was that girl in high school who just wanted to get married and have babies. Well, I did it, and I’m proud of the wife and mother that I’ve become. But I kept my dream close, and when this opportunity came about, I just couldn’t let it pass me by. 

I was so nervous and scared when the producers got to my house. I was trying so hard to control my nerves so they wouldn’t rattle my voice. It’s definitely not easy to sing a cappella, let alone in a room with music producers that work every day with artists such as Britney Spears and Beyonce. What if they tell me I stink? What if everyone hates my song? But how will I ever know if I don’t try.
