Happy Holidays, all!

We had a nice chill day yesterday, complete with a kick-ass dinner that my father-in-law and I made (ok, really he did most of the work, but I made a really, really good ham). Also got to Skype with my parents so they could see the boy open his presents.

It’s been a quiet season, but I’m spending a lot of time practicing, learning new tunes, and writing a lot.

Maggie and I are getting ready for the arrival of our baby girl, she’s due on March 15, though my dad says he thinks our little Irish kiddo will be here on St. Patrick’s day.

We’re also planning our eventual cross-country road trip to sunny California! At this point (unless the house sells fast) we’re not going to leave until after the baby arrives, But that means even more time to plan for an epic journey! We want to stop at a ton of cool places along the way, including the birthplace of the Dave Matthews Band in Charlottesville, Virginia.

So, two things I need from you all; first – suggestions of new tunes to learn; second – suggestions of places to visit on the way from New England to SoCal!
