up all night

It's amazing what a little sunshine can do! Even though it snowed (yes, snowed!) over the weekend, spring has arrived in Piteå and the days are getting noticeably longer. At 10pm it feels like 6pm, which means I'm up until 3am, and the sun wakes me up at about 6am. I just tell myself that the extra hours are perfect for being productive (or catching up on the Ellen Show...) 

I've spent the last week working really hard on finalizing our Midnight Sun Tour. I don't know if it's the sunshine or the fact that I'm accomplishing so much, but I am feeling great and am so excited for these performances! This week I have four more meetings (finalizing sponsors, logistics, and venues) before our 5-day trip to Finland to play at Pori-Palmgren Conservatory (more on that later). I am hoping to solidify the details of the tour and start publicizing early next week! Stay tuned! 

Here is a picture of the view from our apartment, at midnight in Piteå right now...in one month it will be amazing to perform some new music outside!!
