Making Music & Travelling with Kids!

Hey friends!

So, I get a lot of comments about traveling with the kids and how hard it must be, and I have to say honestly, my heart hurts when I’m not with them! So why not? If you have the right gear, it can be easy. Having an easy to use travel crib can make all the difference, or in this case, a great portable high chair! It all helps. When you home school and have some flexibility within your daily routine, it can be done!

We have discovered this gem of a high chair- The Stokke Clikk high chair – which is not only a great for at home, but it travels really easily which is great for us- especially travelling so much for performances (hopefully again soon!) We couldn’t be more pleased with this product- easy to assemble, disassemble, easy to clean, high quality, strong, sturdy and safe and watch to the end to see how easy it is to pack it all up and get rocking! I rarely leave the kids at home unless it’s an overnight thing only, so I like to be ready for travel. Check out our video on this awesome high chair:

Other great items for travel that we take:

Portable potty
iPads with educational software for kids for long flights
Travel table for airplane seats or car rides
Travel crib
Carrier for tired toddlers

Any tips? We always love to hear them! There’s ALWAYS room for improvement!

It’s a GIRL! + Some new inspiration

It’s a GIRL! + Some new inspiration

My dear friends & fans, most of you have probably noticed that I have baby #3 on board… and today I’m so excited to share that it’s a GIRL! We can’t wait to meet the newest addition to our family!

Motherhood has been one of the most amazing and craziest journeys I have ever been on. So much learnt, so much happiness and exhaustion too… but SO worth it, our adorable peanuts are to us, the most amazing little people. It’s definitely stirred up more creativity in me- I think I’m writing now more than performing, which is rare for me considering the last few years! So… news is… with all that writing… there’s an album in the works, and I’ll be sharing a single before the end of the year! Thank you to all of you who shared feedback with me, I’m definitely listening.

Speaking of writing… since I changed my stage name back to my maiden name, I have been inspired to explore my father’s family’s ancestry, and I’m planning to follow it all the way back to Scotland. Excited to be planning a trip to visit the Scottish lowlands where the Armstrong clan originated from and can’t wait to explore… So beautiful and mysterious… what stories are waiting there that might inspire my new album? The family and I will be off next year to find out, and explore the music of Scotland. Any suggestions on where to go/what to check out in Scotland? I’d love to hear from you! Send me a Facebook PM!


Sometimes I like to find new places to practice and gather inspiration… Here’s one of my favorite places recently! in a beautiful local church… CLICK here to check out this beautiful spot (and take a listen!)

See you out there…
