Christmas in July!

Christmas in July!

by Andrea Brett

It’s 98 degrees outside, the sun is blazing, Table Rock Lake is buzzing with boats and jet skis. Silver Dollar City is scooping Dippin’ Dots, outlet shoppers are looking for that parking space in the shade, and show goers are cooling off in air conditioned theater seats. It’s definitely another hot, sunny summer in Branson, Missouri, and, strangest thing—I’m blogging about Christmas! Crazy…

What's Up with The Brett Family?

What's Up with The Brett Family?

By Andrea Brett

Hi, y’all!  In this month’s blogpost, I promised to give you a little rundown/update about what’s been going on with our family as of late.  With the change in our show schedule, our friends and fans have been asking lots of questions about our plans.  Since we are only performing Christmas shows in Branson this year, a common query has been, “are you and Tom retiring?” Another question that we’ve been repeatedly asked is, “what are you going to do with all of your free time?”   So, just to set the record straight...

Dear Friends of The Brett Family Show,

It’s been a very busy winter so far, full of change, and new plans, new music, and travels to new places.  I’ll talk about that more in my next blog post and give an update on what’s new for all of us, but for now, since it’s February, I thought I’d write a few words about one of my favorite subjects – you guessed it!  LOVE!

Finally Finished! Only the Beginning...

Hello, everyone!  We have been so busy lately, getting ready for our Christmas show that many things have taken a back burner.  When there are pressing and urgent needs in the forefront, sometimes the important matters aren’t attended to.  Sometimes there doesn’t seem to be time to enjoy and savor life’s moments that really matter.  There isn’t time to feel and appreciate and express gratitude.  That has been the case in my life lately, especially in regards to one really big occurrence in my life this year –

I finally finished the “I Am a Veteran” book.

The New Song

Life has been crazy lately.  We are in the throes of preparing for our Christmas show, which opens in just 16 days!  This year, we’ve taken on the goal of becoming the Christmas show to see in Branson.  For The Bretts, putting a show on stage takes more time and energy and heart than is sometimes humanly possible.

Today I am grateful.  It’s Fourth of July weekend.  The celebrations and barbecues and fireworks have begun.  Flags are flying and I am freely “moving about the cabin” of my life.  Today I celebrate the freedoms that we as Americans have to choose our path, to dream, to fail, to succeed, to decide.

What Love Does One Year Later

by Andrea C. Brett

Last year in February, I posted a blog called “What Love Does – Valentine’s Day Musings About Love.”  It explored the idea that love is not a noun, or an “is” – but that love is really a verb, or a “does.”   I wrote a list of a few of the simple and wonderful things that love has done in my life.  After the blog was posted, I continued to ponder on the idea, and over time, the thoughts in my head (like my thoughts often do) began to take the shape of a song.

What Love Does - Valentine's Day Musings About Love from Andrea

By Andrea C. Brett

So, Valentine’s Day is in two days.  Whenever Valentine’s Day rolls around, I start thinking about what love is.  Strangely enough, and as cliché as it may seem, the month of February really does make me ponder on the subject of love and its many meanings.  This year, for some reason, though, I haven’t been thinking nearly as much about what love is.  I’ve been thinking much more about what love does.  You know, love as a verb.  In my experience, I have been a personal witness to, and grateful recipient of many wonderful things that love does.  Things like this:
