Happy Monday you guys!

We’re back in Calgary, and I’m still dreaming of our beautiful days in Kelowna! Days by the water, building sand castles…. after lock down it was such a blessing.

So while I’m saving up the new album material for next month’s Patreon Show, I thought it a perfect opportunity to share with you one of my favourite pieces of music to play. I have performed this for my own family at a very special occasion, and many others as well. I hope you enjoy this Patreon exclusive video, shot by my own husband and edited by yours truly, no special hair or makeup, this is a first! Check out the preview below, and you can sign up to my Patreon Membership Page for fans for as little as $1 a month!

Huge thanks to the Quails  Gate Winery for hosting us- side note- we also had two absolutely amazing meals at their world renowned restaurant, Old Vines, as well. It was pretty relaxing to know too, that there were no cases of Covid-19 in the Kelowna area where we were too, and everyone just seemed so relaxed! It was truly wonderful.

My little ones really are my biggest lesson and my biggest inspiration. Their innocence and random proclamations of love are just so beautiful.. even though as their mother, I guide them, and do my best to lead them, they teach me so much as well their little spirits often uplift mine, as much as I do for them in all the comfort and love that mothers provide.

This performance was just a perfect representation of the great moments, fit in amongst the chaos!

Love to you all,

Sophie Xo
