So I started this post last week, going into detail about where we travelled & when & why, but sitting down to finish it up, I thought it better to go a different direction. Todd & I finished our Love Sweet Summer Tour in Borger, Texas Saturday August 6th. & what a way to end a great tour. We stayed with Todd’s friends the Birges, who quickly also became mine, & were responsible for our booking at the Borger Country Club. A great evening complete with delicious dinner, drinks, music, laughter, & some of the best fun we’ve had at a gig was topped off with the warm hospitality & company of the Birges. Now we sit on the ranch where my Dad lives in New Mexico, ready to take of for Denver tomorrow. Reflecting on the past few weeks, there have been so many memories made as well as friends & roadside stops to switch drivers. There were gigs that paid well & some not so well. Those that we didn’t want to end & some we couldn’t wait to leave. But in each one, we learned & loved it for what it taught us. This Cradle is ready to go home & settle in for a while, spend time with Emma, snuggle our cats, & see friends we have missed over the past month. There is something about going home after a long trip that makes you even more grateful for what you left behind. But the thing for which I am most grateful is to have spent this precious time with the person I love most, the one who shares my soul & is my home away from home, Grave. We know we are lucky- there are bands & couples who haven’t had the freedom we’ve had this summer, & it is certainly not out of our own doing. Jackie Martin, who took care of our business, Emma & my Mom who took care of Webber & Boots, & everyone we met along the way who bought a CD, offered a kind word, shared their homes- even though it is a small gesture in comparison to what you have given us- thank you. We are planning more adventures soon, so please keep updated through our Facebook & on Twitter & Instagram @hubbywifeduo.
