Miss my Sis

My sister Jane is the bestest sister in the whole wide world.  I cannot believe how lucky I am to have Jane as my sister.  She is so beautiful, sweet, talented, smart and generous.  Wow!!!!!!

We are 10 years apart and we act the same age.  We have so much fun together.  I remember when Mom and Dad first brought her home from the hospital in a blizzard in Atlanta, Georgia.  I put pigtails and pony tails in her hair and dressed her up funny and took photos of her.  I took Jane and her friends to her first concert, The Spin Doctors.  

We almost got crushed while jogging underneath a fallen tree together in Maine. Jane also went on tour with Snake Oil Medicine Show for years and was our merch girl and part time clarinet player.  She also got to go to Jamaica with us.  Through thick and through thin, Jane has been in my life every single day.

Incredible April Monday

I hope everyone is having a lovely Monday.  All the windows are open in my cottage apartment, the curtains are billowing in the wind and I have geraniums on the sills.  I am spring cleaning like a fool.  So, this weekend was a blast. Atlanta to Boone.  Tell you more later when I have more time and I will put up some photos as well.

 We had great photographers out at our Atlanta show, Sean Deegan, Dave Leo, John Weiner, Vincent Tseng and Tamara Botkin.  Paparazzi baby.  I am leaving you with one of my fave photos from my college buddy David Leo.  He captures my happy Caro on stage look.  More to come.  Cheers.

Twittering News

I am just gearing up to head on a mini tour this weekend with Snake Oil Medicine Show.  We will be in Atlanta, Georgia tonite.  This is where  I was born and raised, so its nice to go to my hometown.  Snake Oil is playing at the Five Spot in Little Five Points.   Then on Saturday night we are heading to Boone, North Carolina to play a show at The Dragonfly Theatre.   I will try and post stuff on my twitter account.  What an amazing platform twitter is.  I mean Ashton Kutcher beat CNN with the amount of followers he has.  He has over 1 million followers and he is donating malaria nets in Africa.  Soooo coooool…….I am getting so techy now, as my friend Eli Bajalia tells me.  Ha ha. 

Anyways, have a fantastic weekend and I am going to leave you with a quote that I heard from Puff Daddy.  “Congratulate don’t Hate.”   That is so awesome and tickles me to no end.

Just another late night post picture of yours truly before I head out for the weekend.  Cheers.

In addition, we got in trouble for taking photos and talking too loud.

Our voices were disturbing the sanctity of the spa. Oooops.  I get it.  So, here are the contraband photos from the spa.  Cheers.

Mid Week Blue Hue

I had such a lovely time at the Grove Park Inn Spa with my friend Courtney and I will post photos on my blog as soon as I upload them.  Also I had a yummy sweet dinner at the Ichiban with Kevin and we walked over to the Grand Bohemian Hotel afterwards to check it out.  That place was awesome.  I would love to have a martini in the Red Stag Lounge one of these days.dsc008251

So sorry I am not writing a bunch at this moment in time.  I don’t think my chakras are aligned, I have been a bit blue today.  I just need to step back and examine some things in my life right now.  Just reflection and meditation.  I love you my friends, family and fans I will return to my happy go lucky self.  But for now I am just chilling out trying to feel my emotions.

When I wake up in the morning it will be a brand new beautiful day with new adventures.

Spa Day for Free

I took a few photos with my new camera this weekend and it was so much fun.  I have a lot to learn with this camera but I plan to keep on practicing and shooting a bunch of pictures.img_0416

This Monday morning I get to go to The Grove Park Inn Spa for free.  I am going to spend all day there reading books, relaxing, swimming in the mineral waters, hottubbing under the waterfalls and dipping in the cold plunge pool.  Also I plan on sipping on some champagne and soaking some sunshine in.

I got a pedicure for the Spring Time.

My girlfriend Courtney and I get to go for free because last summer, she and I and two of our other lady friends went there to celebrate our birthdays and we got evacuated from the spa because of a gas leak.  I will tell you the whole story later on, but for now I got to go and get ready for a day off in paradise.   Cheers.

 

Have a great day,

Caroline

My Niece Has Big Hair
