I don’t really know how to start this blog post other than saying that the past two months have been a crazy adventure… Time to catch up. If you follow me on Instagram then you have somewhat of an idea of what I’ve been up to.
At the end of July I packed a small suitcase and left for Salt Lake City (my first time riding a plane by myself). I didn’t have a plane ticket home and really had no idea when I’d be seeing my mom and Lucy again. There, I met my dad and boyfriend on the third leg of their North American Tour and sold merchandise at their shows.
We traveled to eleven cities in four states by van. I loved visiting parts of the country that I would’t normally travel to, especially Colorado.
Selling merch was such a cool experience, I loved meeting and talking to new people and of course watching my dad and Brandon on stage every night.
Lubbock, TX was an awesome stop because I got to visit the Buddy Holly statue (I’m in love with Buddy Holly). I probably would have never traveled to Lubbock if it weren’t for this tour, and I’m so happy I had that opportunity.
After the tour was over, Brandon and I stayed at his parent’s house in Grapevine, TX for a couple weeks. We took some much needed time off and did tons of fun stuff.
We went to a baseball game, ice skating, bowling, antiquing, and he even started teaching me how to play drums (we are currently starting a garage band). One of the coolest things we did was go to a Dallas Cowboys game, which made me feel like a true Texan.
While in the Dallas area I decided to get tattooed by the amazing Little Linda. I am SO happy with how my tattoo came out, and I love that I got it while on this crazy adventure because it will always remind of this happy time in my life.
After a couple weeks in Grapevine, Brandon and I packed our bags once again and drove down to Taylor, TX where we stayed in an apartment for a couple weeks while Brandon recorded. We originally planned to be living in Taylor for awhile, but we decided to move to Long Beach together so that he can pursue music in LA and start a new band with my dad. We drove from Dallas to Long Beach in two days, ready for another new beginning. We are now both living in my tiny bedroom in my parent’s house, but I’ve honestly never been happier. We are both working our butts off to move out into our own place, which I anticipate will happen some time next year. But I’m trying to just enjoy every moment and not think about the future too much.
As for Lucy, she’s been making tons of YouTube videos, and she’s actually gotten really good at filming and editing them. These are a few of my favorites she’s made in the past couple months…
