Are you ready to learn that there is yet one more facet to my life that I have not yet exposed you to? I know. It's exciting, isn't it? I'm giddy and nervous all at once over what I'm about to show you.
Did you know I am a singer? Yes, I am. I mostly sing in the bathroom when I'm curling my hair in the morning or in the car on my way to work. It is rare for me to break out into song in front of other people, though. That makes me feel self-conscious. And when I say rare, I mean I've only done it once or twice in the last couple of years.
Since I am so self-conscious, I'm not really sure why I ever got it into my head that I would want to sing in front of people at church, but I do. I used to sing solo, but a couple years ago I decided to go duet because it reduces the amount of jitters and hand sweating that takes place when you're in front of a crowd. I joined forces with my friend Judy, which was a really smart move because she makes me look good. Anyway, they let us do what we love to do every couple of months at church.
Getting this video here on this blog post has been a process, let me tell ya. In the video you will see me in the center (during my blonde phase), my Judy on the right (the lovely guitarist), and our friend Jamie to the left, playing violin (she's awesome!). Oh and just a side note...you can see my parents sitting in the front pew at the very bottom left of the video. They are looking adoringly at me, their firstborn. 'Cuz that's what they always do. :)
