Super Moon…Super Mom

Super Moon….Super Mom

Today is the Super Moon and it occurred to me as I was reading about what it is and just what that meant that I am attempting to be,  and occasionally am, a Super Mom!  Luckily for me, it occurs more than every 20-ish years! Lol! Let’s face it, as I am working to become a true “Momprenuer” (my goal is that when the Little Man goes to school, I will be a mostly WAHM) I sometimes wonder when the next time is I get to have more than 5 hours of sleep! Aaah well, that’s another post!
Let me catch you up on some of my endeavors…..
Of course, if you follow me even a little you definitely know I am a Chicksinger! On that front, my first one-woman show moves ever forward and has a new title and 3 new songs! The title I can share with you (the songs are still a secret for now) “The Shoe Must Go On”!  As I walk through my life, I see that the shoes I choose to wear speaks volumes and defines the moment. I can’t wait to share some of life’s most poignant and fun moments with you in music, song  and shoes!
Along with that, my vocal trio, Dangerous Curves is writing a brand new show specifically designed for the cabaret audience. We intend to pull out all the stops, vocally, musically and emotionally. The girls and I want to absolutely engage the audience with our song choices and engulf them in the Dangerous Curves message…”the beauty of music, the strength of self….each woman brings her own take on music, fashion and the pursuit of happiness”…I love that message! 
Now, along with being a singer, I also teach voice lessons and I am so excited that I have recently added a few more students and they are wonderful and inspiring and I love them!
Now, for two announcements that I am especially excited about! First, I am now part of the Today’s Mama blogging family! I am officially the writer for the “Out and About” category for Nevada with my title being the “Chicksinger and Wine and Dine Gal”! A real writing gig! 
Secondly, I am about to be a part of a brand new company that features women who have are techie geeks! LOL! How much fun is that?!  As soon as the official announcement of business name and the other fabulous ladies comes (I’m honored to be included with some of the smartest, tech-ie-est chicks I know!), I’ll post all the 411.
Today is a tough day, too.  Today is the 5th anniversary of my Mom’s passing.  It is really hard to believe it has already been that long.  So much has happened since she left this Earth for the Heavens above…I truly admired, adored and loved my Mom. An inspiration as a woman, wife and mother.  My Mother was the original Super Mom.  I aspire to be even half the woman my Mother was….Mom, I miss you, I love you and I’ll see you again, someday.
