My Career As A Song Writer
When my son told me he was getting married in 2006 I thought I could write the mother son wedding song for us to dance to at his wedding. I wanted to give my him and his new bride a wedding song that was special from me. I wanted to focus on his marriage and future with his new bride with words of wisdom in my lyrics. I had my lyrics to “I’ll Always Be Your Mother”, combined with traditional music and I cried the first, second and every time I heard it, it was perfect. I recorded the traditional version of my mother son song with a local singer and had a CD made for the wedding day. When my son and I were dancing to the most beautiful mother son wedding song, in my opinion, at his wedding, there was not a dry eye at the wedding reception, whether they were young, old, male or female. As you can see on Youtube, I cried the whole song. It was so special to me and my son even though he made fun of my crying at the end. After the song was over, everyone came up to me and said that I should market the song and that was the start of me becoming a wedding song writer. I recorded a country version with another local singer and had all the art work done professionally for the CD cover and the two versions became a CD. I also added instrumental versions to be played at the church. I created a website, which I have never done before, and started to market and sell the CDs online. I received my first order and was really excited that someone else wanted to dance to my mother son song that I wrote for my son and me, I was honored.
Since the success and release of I’ll Always Be Your Mother, I wrote a father-daughter wedding song titled I’ll Always Be Your Daughter and it was released in May 2008. My bride and groom first dance song titled Two Little Words was released in June 2009.
I have been blessed with a husband of 40 years, two great sons, a great daughter in law and also a grandmother of two beautiful little girls that I love so much.
I want to send best wishes to all mothers & sons, fathers & daughters, brides & grooms, and all families on their special wedding day. I hope you are as blessed as I am with great family and friends.
My new project that was released in 2015 is a CD of children songs. “Zoo Animal Songs” are pop versions of new updated children songs. When my granddaughters were first born I was tired of listening to the old versions of nursery rhymes. I thought to myself that I needed to write some children songs that have a pop vibe and are not boring. My granddaughters are 4 and 8 years old now and they like to listen to the pop songs on the radio. I had my lyrics combined with pop song music and it was magic. To add more interest for the kids, I made all the children songs about zoo animals. The animal songs are not only fun to listen and dance to, they are educational. The girl that was hired to sing the songs is a school teacher and she loved them. The children songs were recorded and published in Strongsville, Ohio at the Media Cube with Michael Papatonis and Eddie Tomecko. I hope people who buy Zoo Animal Songs love it as much as my granddaughters and I do.
Now it brings me to my latest project as of October 2015. My husband and I have always wanted to buy a second home by the water. Our family has vacationed in Myrtle Beach for almost 40 years. We have rented condos all over Myrtle Beach including North Myrtle Beach and Cherry Grove. We discovered the Kingston Plantation about 10 years ago and have rented there ever since. We liked all the resort had to offer. Most of the other condos we rented just had a pool and that’s it. The Kingston Plantation being a resort has so much more. (See info here) Our journey begun and we see unit 1109 of the South Hampton and we knew this was the one for us. We originally wanted a three bedroom ocean view but their main living areas were small and I wanted an open floor plan that our whole family could enjoy and be together with plenty of seating but still have great views. The ocean front views in our condo were perfect and we love it. So, we choose a two bedroom gorgeous ocean front condo instead of a three bedroom ocean view. It’s perfect for our family and I hope our guests enjoy it as much as we do. We remodeled in November 2015 most of the unit as you can see by the pictures. We love how it turned out, clean, open and contemporary with beach accents throughout the unit.
