Grandpas Tire Swing

Grandpas Tire Swing

The kids and I have been in Michigan for 5 weeks. The charity run we organize in memory of my mother was a success and more money has been raised for breast cancer research.

Our journey is ending soon as we leave on Tuesday for another three day car ride back to California.

We survive, if you’re wondering.


The summers spent here in my hometown of Petersburg, Michigan are nothing short of spectacular.

I feel privileged and blessed to be able to give my children a little bit of both worlds…the fast paced, energetic, diverse Los Angeles and the family, thunderstorms, amazing people, open spaces and slower pace of the Midwest.

It really is a different world here.

And I absolutely love it.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to head back close to here in September for our first Chicago show. Chicago to me is Lake Michigan, The Cubs & White Sox, City and Suburbs….It’s my Midwest.

Can’t wait to see you soon Chicago.

Everything is better with dirt. Yes it is.
