the tour goes on…

Well our little fall vacation is coming to a close. We’ll leave Avalon this afternoon and head for DE for the night. Tomorrow night we’re playing a house show in Southern DE.  I think it will be a fun time.  And it’s really about time for us to get back in the swing of things. Vacation is so nice. But we love playing music. And we love seeing you guys at the shows.

I have to say that touring has been excellent this month. Each show has been different but so good.  It’s fun to play when you feel like you’re having a different conversation with the audience each night.  It’s nice and the songs don’t get old.  In Alexandria we played a house show for about 30 people.  It was such an intimate fun night. We played a great house show in Newark, DE for the BSM folk.  It was cold and rainy, but we played under a cozy tent with lanterns. So pretty. So serene.  The show at King’s College was unbelievable.  I couldn’t believe that so many of you showed and stayed and wanted to talk afterwards. That show was pretty cool because we played to an audience of about 80 and only a handful of the folks had heard our music before. I love connecting with people for the first time.  The shows at Eastern were awesome too.  The first night we played a midnight show and I guess I’d forgotten that in college going to something at midnight on a Friday night isn’t a big deal.  We had a blast. And the encore performance the next night was cool too.

A little update…

So we’ve been touring for a little while now and have actually spent the past 4 days or so hanging out just the two of us in Avalon, NJ. A much needed “just us vacation.” We’re loving it.

Anyway, I haven’t updated the blog recently, and while we were in Lynchburg a fan actually told me that she reads it! So now that I know it’s more than just my parents keeping tabs on me, I feel a bit more inspired to write.

We’re sitting in Starbucks taking care of business and I decided to create this lovely video for you. Enjoy.

From Lynchburg

I keep thinking that it’s too late and that I’m too tired and that if I do post now it won’t make sense when you read it in the morning…but after about an hour or so of thinking these thoughts, we are still up doing some admin work, so I thought why not post?

Tonight was the first stop on our September tour.  We left Nashville at about 8am (seriously, I did NOT know that there were so many school zones in East Nashville! I guess that’s what happens when you are never out before 10am) and arrived safely in Lynchburg at 5pm. It was a long day.  But we had a ton of fun in the car. We had a great playlist going–Bethany Dillon, Phil Wickham, Nichole Nordeman, Foy Vance, Shane & Shane to name a few, and when we were about an hour outside of Lynchburg we gave into our guilty pleasure and listened to amazing (I mean horrifying) country music the rest of the way. I heard a new one today. The chorus was, “I quit smoking, women, and drinking and that was the worst 15 minutes of my life.”  It struck me as just being too stereotypical and then I had to laugh when 20 minutes later “You Ain’t Much Fun Since I Quit Drinking” came on. Classic. I can’t believe I’m actually writing about enjoying these songs.  I’m so ashamed.

Oh and we played “Love Story” at the show tonight. Everyone sang along. And I loved it.

Sigh.

I’m officially not thinking clearly. Will post more later.

goodnight.

blast from the past. (too cheesy? yes?)

So wouldn’t you know it, we’re in Bethesda, MD again.  We got up at 4:15 this morning to start the trek to Nashville.  At 6am on the beltway our back left tire blew.  Yay!  Let me tell you, changing a tire when the back of your element is entirely stuffed full of equipment AND you have a new trailer on the back is interesting.  Tyler had to unload a ton of stuff just to get to the spare and the jack and all of that stuff.  Now we’re in Bethesda and Tyler is trying to patch the tire (when we had a flat in Pittsburgh the guy at the shop gave us a bunch of plugs and all of the stuff you need to patch a tire.) at a shell station and I’m sitting in a Caribou Coffee drinking a lite white raspberry.  If we were going to get a flat tire, I’m glad it was within a mile and a half of a Caribou.  They are seriously the best coffee shops ever.

So we arrived in Philly on Monday and spent yesterday in DE getting over our jet lag.  Yesterday morning I realized that it was the first day of classes at UD, which meant that BSM (a ministry we were really involved in while we were at UD) was having a big barbeque…AND that the Deltones (my a’cappella group) would be having auditions.  So, we ventured to campus.  It was actually kind of an emotional trip.  We drove down Main Street and realized that we met at UD literally 5 years ago last Sunday.  We got to the BSM house and a girl who I’d never met asked me where Tyler had proposed. (She’d heard One-Eyed Cat!)  I pointed to the driveway where Tyler knelt in a puddle.  It’s fun to relive the memories.

So why don’t we do just that?  Here are some photos!
