All The Things

Nashville, TN.

Friendsssssssss! How are you? It has been such a lovely spring season for our family, and I want to tell you all about it.

In April we played our last show of the year. I don't think I've ever played my last show of the year in the spring! It was so much fun gathering the band and team one last time before baby comes in September. We joined a beautiful choir and string section in Brandon, FL for a concert reminiscent of our Carnegie Hall show last year, and really it was just perfect. Here are our sad faces because we're so sad it's over (Left to right is Cornelius (bass), Travis (drums), Brandon (guitar and spaceship sounds), me, Nathan (lead guitar), Danny (lights), Joe (sound), Dave (road manager extraordinaire); Luke (keys) and Samantha (BGVs) are sadly missing from this picture):


We also found out a couple of weeks ago that we're having another BOY!!! Ahhh, it so exciting to be adding to our family, and I know that Isaac and this little guy are going to be best buds. Can't wait.


School is almost out, which means pool time, beach time, popsicles every day, and just all the glorious things that come with no schedules! I haven't had a summer this free in years, and we plan to soak it up. Yes and amen! 


Having time off the road means writing more songs, writing more blogs, cooking more meals, and diving into other passions (around all the pool/sprinkler/popsicle time). One of the things I'm super passionate about but haven't shared a ton about is essential oils. They have been so priceless in our lives. I can't tell you what a gift it is as a mom to have a way to support my kiddos naturally. They know what to do when they feel something is off--they pray first and then go straight to their oils! :)


I'm passionate about getting these little bottles of goodness into as many homes as possible because they have made such a difference for us. To support our bodies, clean our homes, pamper our skin, and cook our food all without the use of "yuckies?" Sign me up. Hopefully you're already following me on instagram at @francescamusic, but I've also created a new account for all things wellness, oils, and everyday mom life, and I'd love for you to follow me there too! It's @honeycomb_essentials, and I promise we're going to have a LOT of fun!


So keep following me here, there, and everywhere, and I can't wait to see what God does this summer!

Love,
Francesca

  1. Ssssssoooooo excited for your next CD!! I've heard a few songs you have played over the months on youtube, and I can't wait to hear the rest!! I'm glad that you will have some rest over the summer. I'm sure it will be nice and relaxing! When you tour again next year, could you come to Chicago again? I LOVED your concert here (10 min from where I live) on October 18th 2014 (I can't believe that was almost 3 years ago!?!) Renee Yeo was going to let us meet you before the show, but you were not feeling good that day. I so wanted to meet you! You did give me a hug, though because I gave you your dinner you ordered after the Q&A, so I was glad for that! Good luck on doing the oil buisness. I so wish we were in your downline, but we are in your "sideline" , lol.
    Hopefully listening to some new music soon!

  2. Hi!
    I am a teen who has loved your music for the longest time! Your songs speak to me like no other ones! And I can always count on an important message when I listen to your songs.
    This March I got to see you on the Rock and Worship Roadshow (Thank you so much for doing it even when you weren't feeling well, you definitely touched some lives.) Your live performance was so amazing and while I can't wait for your next CD I also think it'd be amazing if you made a live CD.
    You are one of my role models. You make music that makes a difference and as a teen in this world where music is sending bad messages this is super important!
    Thank you so much for everything you do!

    1. Hey! We were at the same show!! I LOVED The Arlington Heights show. I SO wished Franny was feeling better, then I would've met her! I don't remember anybody coming up after the Q&A, except me, to give her the dinner she and her band ordered, but then again, that was almost 3 years ago(wow) So wish she will come back soon!
