This weekend at the Cherokee Creek Music Festival was a small taste of Texas in a big way. We played for a brand new audience and by the end of the evening, we were all riding the same high vibe wave. The love was contagious and the spirit of connection filled the festival, with a breathtaking Texas night sky as the backdrop. The people, music and the power of nature definitely feed my soul. #ThankYouTexas #StayHumanTour

Today, I celebrate the first Mother’s Day for Sara Agah Franti since Taj was born! Sara, I’ve seen you go through the highs and lows of being a mother, like trying to get him to latch when his tiny mouth was too small and we were worried he’d never get it, to finally seeing him become a pro at it who seemingly never wants to get off it. :) The nights with little or no sleep, to all three of us having dreamy naps together. Laughing hysterically as baby Taj has learned to feed himself whole food with his two hands which he somehow manages to get on the back of his head. You’ve done extensive online research on every item we could possibly need, have troubleshot every challenge that has come up, and now, you're sharing your own super HONEST advice on your blog, adding to the great lexicon of Motherly Wisdom. I’ve seen you already go way beyond the strength I possess to show up for Taj over and over, through every bath, rash, upset tummy, burp, fart, poop, cry, smile and laugh —you seem to know what they all mean and when you tell me I always think, “wow, that makes sense to me!” It’s been a blessing to see how your mother has been there to share her love and experience with Taj and you and how gracefully she’s backed off when you chose to do things differently than her. The two of you are amazing and I couldn’t be more fortunate to have both of you when Behjat Agah travels to come to spend time with us. I always knew you’d be a great mom who could endure any challenge but watching you in action each day, struggling with them and solving them with love in your heart has been one of the greatest joys of my life. Baby Taj and I are both grateful for all you are and all you do for our family. —Happy Mother’s Day, Sara and all the Mothers out there!!! Tell us how you're celebrating today!!!

I’ve known 12-year-old Riley Stein since he was a baby and it breaks my heart to see the note he wrote to his mom, my dear friend IG @underprescher1111 this morning to let her know that his school and hundreds of others were canceled this morning due to a potential shooter threat. As of this morning, authorities said 18-year-old Sol Pais is “infatuated” with the Columbine school shooting, and she came to Colorado to buy weapons. Authorities confirmed she flew there from Miami and did buy a pump-action shotgun and ammunition here this week. I also received messages this morning from other students expressing their emotions about Colorado schools being shut down.—I’m sure your heart is as broken by this as mine is, we need to make a change. Visit Everytown for Gun Safety to learn how you can get involved in putting an end to gun violence. #wecanbethehealing #TheFlower

Happy Birthday Sara Agah Franti!!!! Can you believe it’s been almost 11 years since we first met? Last year at this time we were anticipating the arrival of baby Taj and could not possibly imagine the changes that he would bring us. It’s been an amazing journey with you together. Your creativity, smile, fire, courage, intelligence, and wit inspire me and keep me laughing and on my toes every day! We go through our challenges as individuals, as a couple and family, but we always get through it. You help get me to my growing edge every day and I love to support you when you’re at yours. ―My favorite part of this past year has been watching you become a mother, I’ve seen you triumph over so many struggles and always keep, baby Taj, feeling safe, cherished, loved (and milked up)! Our family motto inside of our wedding rings is “Be Your Best. Serve The Greater Good. Rock Out Wherever You Are!” My days with you are really like that and I am so grateful to be married to you and be a family together. Life is better with you!!! f you’re reading this and don’t follow IG @saraagahfranti already, go follow her, she’ll keep you laughing and inspired as she does me! Photo: Renae Saxby
