Female Pilots and Flying to SLC

Greetings friends!

Our album release show of 'Second Wind' was great! Thanks to everyone who came, we had a great time!

Next week, I'm heading to Salt Lake City for a live audience interview on Mormon Stories Podcast where I'll be talking about my life, music, religion, the album, etc. I'm playing a few songs too. It's free to attend, just register here.

Here's a quick link if you want to listen again and share the album with friends

Please follow us on Spotify or iTunes and leave a review, it means so much.

This blog post is important for 2 reasons:

1. May is my favorite month. Even better than December, which is runner-up. This is because it's Mother's Day month and I'll get extra loves from my kids. Then, I get to lock myself in a room with dark chocolate and Netflix for a few hours GUILT-FREE.  

Also, it's warm outside. 

2. There are many incredible women in my life, and I get to share just two of them. 

This is my grandmother. She was a female pilot at a time when generally speaking, women didn't fly. She died tragically at age 35 in a plane accident when flying her plane over the Andes Mountains in Argentina. My mom was 7 years old. 

Even in death, to me, she seemed immortal. My family told stories about her alligator hunting expeditions with my grandfather, cross-continental flights, and raising her family in South America. She was bright, vibrant, beautiful, fashionable, and fearless.  

Her story of graceful bravery has followed me around all my life.

 

This adorable woman is my mother. She is a survivor on many levels. A fighter for family, and the epicenter of my childhood. She has a courage and strength that lies deep within - the kind you only get by passing through the storms of life. She's adventurous, kind, and taught me to be curious.  #yearofthewoman 

Love you mom.  

Happy Mother's Day to all of you and your mothers! May you find a reason to celebrate the women in your life this week. 

Love, 

Angela 

PS - A song I wrote called, "Amazing" was featured on the Women of Substance Podcast Episode this week. I wrote it for my son when he was a baby. That's another story, for another day. =)

    I very much enjoyed the program last night at the Community of Christ. You are chock full of unexpected stories... &now this one about your pilot grandmother. How surprising, and in Argentina, no less! Well, if she ever wrote a book it might have been like one if my favorites...West with the Night.
