Here's a Candy Apple Blue photo flashback ⚡ from 2010. 

Back in 2009, after taking a seven-year-long hiatus from music-making, Hoyt and I both decided that we better get back to work. At that time, we were both in our late 30s and busy living our adult lives. Admittedly, we put our musical dreams on the back burner. Fortunately, we both heard a strong calling to start composing new music again. Our artistic souls needed to dive back into our art.

14 years later, here we are still at it. Thanks to you guys! You have showered us with so much love, support, and enthusiasm. Your loyalty to us and our music is the fuel that keeps us going! 

We want you to know that we feel that our best work is still in front of us. In so many ways, we are just getting started. Thank you for being on this musical journey with us!

Big love, Carly xoxo  🍬🍎🟦

Admittedly, My Lipstick Application Is More Robert Smith Than Madonna 💄

Here I am back in 1993 with my friends Janine and Michael. I love Janine's "Raspberry Beret" and overalls! I'm also really digging Mike's alternative rock look here with his hair and goatee. I remember that we were on our way out to go out clubbing.

Music was always a big part of our lives. I remember Janine being a huge Morrissey and Smiths fan. Mike was really into Saint Entiem and Deee-Lite while I was all about Aimee Mann's first solo album. The music artists that we liked back then were a big part of our identities. It's hard to describe but back in those days, the artists that you listened to helped to define you as a person. 

Admittedly, my lipstick application is more Robert Smith than Madonna, but hey that was the look I was going for. I'm pretty sure that Janine might have borrowed my lipstick because the fact that we are both wearing the same shade of Chanel red is just too much of a coincidence. 

~ Love and laughs, Hoyt 🍬🍎🟦
