Yo Trippin

Oh yah mamas and papas.
There is dancing at my desk at this very minute.

iTunes shuffle uncovered a little forgotten gem that I now have on repeat, repeat, REPEAT.

*uninhibited desk dancing*


Mmm Mmm funky.

Yo Trippin.

Track 11.

*she dances some more*

Stop reading... go get it.
The whole album.

*she kicks her heels off and gets crazy*


DAY TEN: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for laughter.

Nothing feels better than a good belly laugh. Or a baby laughing. Or laughing with someone.

I would laugh all day if I could. Even better, if I could make others laugh all day, I would.

The best part about laughter? It doesn't cost a thing and it gives so much.

On those days when laughter seems a long ways away, we've all got those people who know just what to do.  One of my favorite memories from this past year, was Denice and I reading the DamnYouAutocorrect text bubbles out loud as conversation over the phone.  I was sick of talking about all my crap... sick of everything... and she said, "Let's go look at DYAC." We proceeded to spend two hours laughing our asses off. (Thank you, Denice.)

Seriously, try it. You won't regret it.

Today, I'm thankful for laughter.

He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. (Job 8:21 NLT)


DAY NINE: 10 Days of Gratitude

Thankful for Nashville.

12 years... plus infinity. That's how long I'll be here.

In Nashville, I've pursued two careers.

During the day, I get to help come up with solutions for my clients that move the needle forward.  I get to work with teams of incredibly talented people who have a passion for marketing and serving. I'm just home from a meeting in Memphis where we're getting to make plans to move things forward. Strategically. It jacks me up. I hope I get to do this for a long long time. Not only does it afford me the life I lead, but it really helps me know that the last 25 years of my day gig career, I've learned a ton and have the experience to contribute in a way that will help propel things forward... I'm serving and making things happen. By the grace of God, I'm able to make a difference.

Musically, I've found myself in Nashville. From songwriting, to playing guitar, to sessions, to performing, to evolving as a BGV singer,  to meeting some of the most incredible people and friends... I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. By the grace of God, I am here... fulfilling all my dreams.

Day and night.

No matter what personal issues I'm working through, my career, music and amazing friends get me through. I'm a comin' out of the fog peeps... and it is good. Thank you for helping me live my dreams. No regrets.

Can't Nobody but God + more Jeanne vids...

AND, there's more to come. Music City is the place where I continue to evolve into myself and have found my voice.  This chapter is just the next step....

Can't wait.

Nashville is where I was meant to be. I hope I take my last breath here... among the good souls I've met, among the music that is in my soul.

Today, I'm thankful for Music City.

1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT
"That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”"


DAY EIGHT: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for the one and only Tank Petersen.

Tanky Tankerton
Look at that face? You can totally see why, right?!

He's smart. He's funny. He thinks I'm the bomb dot com.

And, well, I think he is, too.

Tank's a little ham and provides hours of entertaining distraction with his antics. So many tricks and commands in his arsenal. "Sit." "Lay down." "Wait." "Ok." Those are the staples. He flips treats off his nose and catches them. He also plays dead if I point and shoot him with my finger, catches a frisbee like a badass (and pretty much anything I throw his way). When he gets in trouble, all I have to say is "go to your mat" and he goes. Stays there until I say, "OK".  He even rings a jingle bell hanging on the front door knob to let me know when he wants to go outside. When we go for walks, he heels on command and doesn't drag me all over the place. And, if I even say the word "ride" he goes out of his mind with excitement... He'll do anything for a ride in the car. Most of the time I have to spell it out to minimize the length of flippage. "Walk" in any context gets the same reaction.
Tanky Livn' Large @ the dog park

Tank is also my protector... my built in security guard.  I defy anyone to not be a little scared of his bark.  It's loud, assertive and I have no doubt he's freaked more than one visitor out. Sorry, peeps. But, I don't mind that he's that way. Tanky would totally have my back if anyone tried to bust in the house or hurt me. I'm okay with the occasional delivery person or maintenance person feeling a little uncomfortable. When I had my house alarm worked on last fall, the alarm dude said, "With him... you don't need an alarm." Pretty comforting.

If only they knew that he becomes a furry earthquake at the hint of a thunderstorm. He's chill most of the time... until someone comes to the door.  Tanky loves loves loves visitors. (Thank you friends who've had to work around the first 5 minutes of arriving here... and the obnoxious jealous bark that erupts if we hug goodbye.)

Not gonna lie, sometimes the responsibility of having a dog and three cats can be overwhelming as a single person with a day gig and active music life. (Parents... I seriously don't know how you do it. It's probably best that I never became a Mom. LOL)  But the benefits of having Tank, my loyal buddy, in my life way outweigh the occasional inconvenience.  And, I'm blessed to have Annette and Robin next door for those times when my day runs long or travel plans change.  They have helped me out in a pinch more than once... words can't express how much I appreciate it.

So, today is my Tanky day of Thanks.

GENESIS 9: 14-17
When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things. `That' God told Noah, `is the sign of the covenant I have established between myself and all living things on earth.' 


DAY SEVEN: 10 days of Gratitude

Today... I'm thankful for Sundays.

Daryl. Crunchie on the outside. Soft on the inside.
Cross Point.
Cleaning. Purging my old life.
The Anderson's.
The Walking Dead.
Boardwalk Empire.

It doesn't get any better than this, folks.

Good times.
Good friends.
Hanging with Nashville peeps... Nashville family.

Freakin' good stuff.

I'm thankful for Sunday's.

Genesis 42:11 NLT: "We are all brothers—members of the same family."


DAY SIX: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for songwriting.

Spent the afternoon "writing" with my brother in song, Jeff Anderson. We didn't finish a song, but we got some good stuff going on. And, among it all, shared our stories. Cause... well, that is what it is all about, right?!

Bluebird. Can't Nobody but God.
Writing has gotten me through the past 14 months. Some songs no one will ever hear, but the exercise helps me heal.  Here is Music City, we call it songwriting therapy. *smile*

God supplies the ideas... the words... and all I can do is channel them the best I can. It's the ultimate problem solving, writing a song. Figuring out the best way to say what you've got to say in 3 minutes or so. Finding the right melody, tempo, feel.

I'm so glad I live in Nashville. Where the words and the song are written best. I've learned so much... and still consider myself an amateur compared to most of my songwriting friends. But I'm here. And I'll keep writing. Hopefully until my last breath.

I'm grateful that God put songs in me. Hopefully, some of them will help others as much as they help me.

So today, I'm thankful for the gift of songwriting. 

Psalms 119:54 NLT
"Your decrees have been the theme of my songs wherever I have lived."


DAY FIVE: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for family.

My actual family... and those in my life who've become family.

I'm thankful to have some really amazing, authentic, loving people in my life who like to talk and laugh as much as I do, who are always up for an adventure, who I would literally die for... and who know me better than me somedays.

Y'all know who you are... Thank you.

Matthew 5:14-16 NLT
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father."

DAY FOUR: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for my parents.

Last night, a friend reminded me how lucky I am to have a Mom & Dad. Not everyone does.  Sometimes I take that for granted. My parents are with us, livin' large and enjoying life.

Next week, they hit Music City. They're driving from Nebraska to hang with me over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We haven't been face-to-face since Christmas 2011.

We may be getting into some trouble around town... so watch out Nashville. Three Petersen's will be on the loose, stirring it up.  (Translation:  Eating, watching TV, going for drives, napping and hitting the antique shops.)

Thank you, Mom & Dad.

Ephesians 1:16 NLT
"I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly"


DAY THREE: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for music.

Shocker, right?

It's the thing that really propels me through life. The words. The groove. The melody.

I feel most alive when I'm sharing music.. whether it's performing, a session, a round, writing a song or seeing live music.

Just another reason Nashville is my home.

On any given night, there are so many choices. The hardest part about living here is deciding what not to see.

So... in celebration of music that jacks me up, helps me feel what I need to feel and rocks my world, here are some artists that you need to check out. They aren't necessarily mainstream... but they should be. Maybe this little post will give them all a few more fans. Some are the songwriters behind the songs you love... and they are the sheeot. Some are artists who are true to themselves and their music. Some are both. All will rock your world.

Please go listen... and if you love it. Buy it. K?

Cause I love these people and it's how they make their living.

You wouldn't want it any other way.

Thank you to music... for always finding a way to help me feel whole.

Psalms 135:3 NLT: "Praise the Lord , for the Lord is good; celebrate his lovely name with   music."


DAY TWO: 10 Days of Gratitude

I'm thankful for the word "yes".

It's amazing what those little three letters put together can bring into your life.

Oh the adventure of it all.

Of course, sometimes I end up sleeping less than I should. But at the end of my life I don't want to be known as someone who rested well.  I want to be known as someone who lived. Period.

There are so many things I wouldn't have experienced had I not said, "yes." Some of the most obvious are listed below... but what's really important among it all, are the relationships, friendships and stories that go along with "yes". There are so many who would be missing in my life today if I had said, "no."

No regrets on the Yes

Bonnie Bishop, Lisa Gray & Me 
Moving to NASHVILLE.  Freakin' LOVE this place. It's where I really get to be me. 100% of the time.  I love who I've become... and who I'm evolving to be living in Nashville. If you'd have told me 15 years ago, I'd be living here and experiencing all of it... I'd have said you were crazy. Writing songs, doing rounds at the Bluebird, performing on the Grand Ole Opry with Lee Roy Parnell, singing BGVs on stage with some of my favorite artists and people. Recording demos and background vocals on sessions.  Getting to hear my voice on the radio. Getting to tag along on the Paisly / Dierks tour, the LRP tour, Blue Mother Tupelo gigs. Learning to play guitar. Finding my tamborine groove. Singing with the Woodland Street Revival peeps.  And you know what the best part of this adventure is?  ALL of the like-minded, gracious, creative souls I've gotten to know.  Getting to know a some of my heros as friends. Sharing music with other people who love to share music. OMG.  All because we made the decision at the 11th hour to move here instead of Minneapolis.  *praise the Lord* We said yes.

View from the Top
Standing on Mt. Rushmore. That's what I said. You read correctly. ON IT with my friend Ann (Panerio) Deckert. I took the pic on the left myself with a real, film loaded, camera.  Mary (Ann's friend who got us behind the scenes on the mountain) took the one on the right... Ann and Me, sitting on George Washington's head. It was very windy. We climbed up the scaffold left behind by the artists. Scaled the rocks of the canyon behind the monument along side mountain goats. We stood in the "hall of records". These pics have been prominently displayed in every office I've had since 1993. Heck yeah... I'm glad I said yes.

Sunny Side-Up
Hot Air Ballooning. Crewing for Kay West (Prarie Sky) and learning to fly in Sunny Side Up (that balloon winking at you to the right) in the process. Amazing seven years. Every flight is a story... every chase an adventure... and I swear I remember every single one.  Taking skydivers up. Getting stranded in the middle of nowhere in Custer State park. Touching the tops of trees. Splash and dashes. Helping people get engaged. Married. Glows. Balloon races. Ahhhh. It was awesome. All because, in 1993, I said "sure. I'll come crew for you. sounds fun." Met some amazing friends among it all, too. Kay is the most gifted pilot. I still dream about flying... 12 years later.  Yes was the only option.

Cassy Petersen & Jime Lynn
Spelunking.  OMG. *she car high five's Cassy & Jime* It all happened over a bucket list discussion and a Groupon to spelunk at Cumberland Caves. We had no idea. None. Nada of what we were about to do. And there is only one way out folks.. through. It was the most amazingly fantastically frightening thing I've ever experienced. We were swung over a crevis by our guide. We crawled through a space that was less than 12 inches square for almost 20 feet. I was freaked out inside and out most of the way through. *she blacks out*  Oh holy mother of God, never again. But I'm still glad I said yes.

Josh, Me & Jake - Paramore Zippers
Zip-lining in WV.  On a Paramore work trip to Rivermen. AND... I was scared shitless pretty much every time I let go.  Am certain I made a complete fool of myself to my coworkers and the client. Especially when attempting to repel down at the end.  But, I don't care. It was so worth it. I highly recommend it. (If you try it, it's work the trip to Adventures on the Gorge in WV... they are the BEST place to white water raft.  Another thing I must try.) Glad I didn't chicken out.

Getting Hitched.  Seriously. I know it sounds crazy.  I never ever never ever never wanted to get married. Avoided it. Turned three people down in my 20s. Until the persistent one... Bandmates. Friends. Roommates. Spouses. We had an amazing run. We got to live the adventure together for a little more than 18 years.  Partners in crime.  It was totally worth it. Doesn't matter that it didn't turn out as we all hoped it would... it's still one of the best things I've ever done. I will never regret that I said yes.

Heck, yeah. I'm thankful for yes. Without it, I wouldn't feel alive.

Ecclesiastes 8:15 NLT
"So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun."


DAY ONE: 10 Days of Gratitude

Thanksgiving is just 10 days away.  How in the heck did that happen?

To celebrate, I've decided to post something Thankful every day until the turkey hits the table.  

DAY ONE: I'm thankful for the sucky stuff.

Don't rub your eyes. You read that correctly.

Over the past year or so, I've spent a ton of time thinking about the past, the rest of my life and working towards acceptance of where my life is at this very moment. 

My goal is to get better and better at right now. Right here.  Not trying to control the future so much. Not trying to fix the past. Just being where I'm at and being okay with whatever that means.

One of the conclusions I've reached is that the sucky stuff requires the most gratitude. 

Not for the pain (that would be the sucky part). 

Instead, for the opportunity to become better. The opportunity to transform myself and re-record the whispers in my head to something more wonderful. The opportunity to use my experience to help others get through, too. The opportunity to lean into my faith, trust God and remember who's really in charge.  (PS: It's not me.)

There is no denying it. Sucky stuff, you really do suck. But you're lighting the way to a better life and helping me recognize challenges that I wouldn't be tackling had you not sucked. 

So, today... I'm thankful for the sucky stuff. 
Here's big ol' *THANK YOU HUG* from me.
Jeremiah 29:11"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."


It's time for finger cookies...

2011 Zombie Fingers
Every year, since 2006, I make "finger cookies" for Halloween.

Evidence here:
2006 - the lady fingers
2007 - bloody fingers
2008 - stubby bloody fingers
2009 - Diversity Fingers
2010 - Green fingers... but can't find the pics!!! *meh*
2011 - Zombie fingers

2009 Diversity Fingers
What should I do this year?  

I'm thinking Zombie for sure... considering my new affliction with the "Walking Dead" (Thanks to Jeff, Maddie, Chelsey, Suzie & Travis... LOL. Hooked.)

What other creepy finger or other halloweeny grossness would be cool?  Ideas?


Potential v Reality

I'm praying for a dear friend, who is going through something similar as me. Accepting the reality of her situation instead of the potential of her reality.
Another friend recently chose to end almost 30 years marriage due to the similar reasons. Another friend, is still dealing with the fallout of making the right decision for herself even after 17 years.
Our past is not the past if we are still living in it, right?!
Over the last few weeks and the past year, God has shown me that I’m not alone. He’s shown me strong women who, for whatever reason, are drawn to the potential of someone, instead of the reality of someone.
It doesn’t make us weak. In fact, what we’ve been through makes us stronger.
It’s now our opportunity to unselfishly look inward & decipher our own needs for the first time in our lives.
We can take care of ourselves first & other’s second… We realize that until we learn to do this, we really can’t help others anymore. We’re tapped out. In fact, by taking care of ourselves, we are able to do more for others if we can figure it out.
Yet, it is uncomfortable.
It’s foreign.
We were taught to put ourselves last.
It feels selfish & wrong to do anything else.
But, guess what?
It’s not.
It’s our turn to focus on what we really want & need in our lives. No compromises.
It’s our turn to give ourselves permission to be ourselves.
And, in the process, find ourselves again.
Fixing everyone else… Taking care of everyone else has only been a diversion from us actually seeing ourselves for who & what we are as strong women.
I, for one, am ready to do the work to turn that around.
And, it’s my hope that the amazingly strong women in my life have the courage to do the same.
God’s got a plan for us… That may involve us caring for others… But in a way that doesn’t hurt us and unintentionally keep others from facing the consequences of their own choices.
We can do this.
And, when we do, no matter how hard, we’ll be a better version of ourselves than we can even imagine.
God’s got our back.
We just need to take those steps of faith and trust His plan.
No more creating our own reality in our relationships. Authenticity is the rule… For ourselves and the people we choose moving forward.
Potential v Reality…
I’m finally choosing reality.
Be good to yourself.
Protect your heart at all costs…
It’s your treasure.
"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life." http://bible.us/Prov4.23.NLT
You deserve better than potential.
You deserve reality.


This is Jeanne on "Energy" Vitamins

This is Jeanne on Energy Vitamins.
I took my multivitamin at lunch today instead of breakfast.

Aaaand, I may want to rethink that in the future.

It is a multivitamin with extra  "energy" and it works.  
Apparently, in the AM it is not as noticeable. In fact, it may be the thing that makes me a better human in the morning.

All I know is that right now... well, I'm not sure whats in these things, but I feel like I could run a marathon. 

So, consider yourself warned. 
Extra enthusiasm on the verge of obnoxiousness abounds this afternoon.


The Gum Parker

It's true.
I chew a ton of gum.
And, have for a long time.

Evidence: The Gum Parker

My Grandma gave me this when I was probably 8 or 9 after one too many pieces of gum ended up in the dishwater.

And cute, right?!


Under the Jefferson Street Bridge

Volunteers unload a truck & set up a make-shift food pantry.
Every Tuesday at 5:30, a group of volunteers assembles beneath the Jefferson Street Bridge.

As volunteers arrive, they check in and receive colored arm bands telling them where they'll be serving for the next two hours.

Trucks wait, jammed with chairs, food, clothes... And within 30 minutes what once was the space beneath an overpass is transformed into a place of worship, The Bridge Ministry.

At 6 pm, live gospel music echoes against the concrete as somewhere between 500 & 600 homeless men, women and children line up to receive a hot meal & something to drink. People serving on the hospitality team carry plates of food and help the guests get settled in their seats. Most carry everything they own with them and it is the only hot meal they'll eat all week.

500+ homeless & volunteers worshiping together
Once everyone is served and seated, the music subsides & worship begins. The pastor delivers a message of hope, acceptance & love... prayers for safety, jobs & a warm place to sleep. A team of volunteers line up along the makeshift worship area to help people pray. Many of the homeless make their way to them and pray with them. There are no words to really describe this experience. It's moving to say the least.

As the service ends, attendees file to the back of the worship area and form lines to receive food for the week from the makeshift "food pantry". From there, they pick up blankets, socks, underwear & toiletries.

In a little more than two hours, they've worshiped, eaten and gotten sustenance / necessities many of us take for granted.

And, what they may not realize, is getting to serve them is just as much of a blessing to those serving them as it is to those being served.

Consider Volunteering:
The cold of winter is not far away from these crisp fall nights.

And, winter is usually when these friends need us most. It's also a more challenging time to find volunteers.

Please consider giving your time, once a month, twice a month, weekly... To those who desperately need it. It's their opportunity, if even for a couple hours, to feel somewhat normal. And, in serving, you'll receive more than you can comprehend.

Find out more: The Bridge Ministry
If you're not sure you want to go it alone, join a group of Cross Point Nashville Campus volunteers who assemble every Tuesday at 5 at the church gym to caravan over and serve together.


Be Who You Are

From The Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie ©1990, Hazelden Foundation. All rights reserved. 

For some of us, this can be frightening. What would happen if we felt what we felt, said what we wanted, became firm about our beliefs, and valued what we needed? What would happen if we let go of our camouflage of adaptation? What would happen if we owned our power to be ourselves?
Would people still like us? Would they go away? Would they become angry?

There comes a time when we become willing and ready to take that risk. To continue growing, and living with ourselves, we realize we must liberate ourselves. It becomes time to stop allowing ourselves to be so controlled by others and their expectations and be true to ourselves - regardless of the reaction of others.

Before long, we begin to understand. Some people may go away, but the relationship would have ended anyway. Some people stay and love and respect us more for taking the risk of being whom we are. We begin to achieve intimacy, and relationships that work.

We discover that who we are has always been good enough. It is who we were intended to be.

Today, I will own my power to be myself.


Woodland Street Revival

Sometimes... staying in on a Saturday night just feels so right. 
Especially when I'm woodshedding for the Woodland Street Revival tomorrow. 

Set list is a barn burner my friends. 

AND, we've got Jonell Mosser and TJ McFarland as our special guests. MMmmMMM goodness.

We're accepting donations for Second Harvest again this month... bring some non-perishable food to help our friends in need.

The bloody mary bar opens with the doors at 1 pm.

Soulfacerocking starts at 1:30ish.

Hope you can make it out.

Light on Religion.
Heavy on the Soul.

Letting go of a fairy tale.

It's been a little more than a year since I discovered that the life I was living was a complete fairy tale. The one thing I thought was for sure… turned out to be blissful ignorance.  
While there are many days I wish I hadn’t discovered the key(s) to pandora’s box, over the past 12+ months, I’ve come to realize that it was a complete blessing.
My life was real.
And, I was giving 100% to a relationship I thought was reciprocal. 
Over most of the past 12+ months, I’ve questioned if the person I’d become during the past 16 years was real.
Today, I’m done with that.
I was real.
I was faithful.
I was living a life that I loved with someone I loved wholly.
AND, I like who I became during those years.
I found myself, my voice and maintained the character of a person I wanted to be.
With that, I’m realizing more and more, that I can’t control what someone else did / does when sharing that life.
Now that I know the whole truth, I won’t regret a thing. 
All I can feel is gratitude and find a way to take my life to the next level, in spite of the disappointment and heartache I've experienced as the result of someone else’s choices.
Those weren’t my choices.
It’s my turn to take care of me, for the first time in my life, to put myself ahead of everyone else. Not in a selfish way, but in a self-care way. Living my life for someone else's dream is no longer an option.
And, while it’s taken almost a year for me to come to that conclusion, I’m ready to put that into action.
While the “action” part is coming slowly, I’m making progress. 
The fact of the matter is that I’ve had an amazing life so far. I loved being married and sharing my life with John. I miss it. I miss us. But I know now that most of those 16 years were full of deception. I won’t regret half of my life because someone else chose to disrespect it. My choices were honest, real and good. No matter what, I will continue to be that person.
It’s my hope that I’ve got another 40 years in me… and I trust those years will be even better than the last 43.
For now, I'm content letting things be and evolve without expectation. I'm also perfectly fine being on my own and surrounded by some pretty amazing friends and family. If at some point I discover there is someone out there who will not deceive me, or take my love, vows, loyalty and commitment for granted, I'll know what to do. 
God has lead me here. God has my back and has had my back. And, if I let myself surrender, God will show me the path that is laid out in front of me.
No more putting myself last.
It’s my time now… and I’m gonna make it count.

Have you seen the sandman?

Mr. Sandman,

I know it's been awhile since we've spoken or spent quality time together, but I'd really like to change that.  Please say you're ready to try again. I really believe we can make this work.

With big love & sugary kisses,

I'm alive.
