Britney Spears, anyone? 🤗 Finally did a proper recording of one of my all-time favorite covers to sing-- @BritneySpears' "Oops! I Did It Again" 🎉 I’ve sung this song for years and years at my live shows, so it seemed like it was high time to do it justice on the internet, too!

p.s. hi how are you?

some things that happened today:
.
- i found an alligator lizard
- i geeked out like a little kid about it (see pic #2)
- it bit me (though i prefer to think of it as more of a goodbye kiss)
- i updated my @spotify playlist with new pretty music for you. check my stories for the link (or search spotify for “sounds like magic”)

4 years ago today—wig shopping for the pilot of #singleby30 (and clearly getting a little distracted 😂). never in my wildest dreams (or nightmares—i was legitimately so afraid of acting) did i ever think i would find myself playing a lead role in an amazing series surrounded by people i love.
.
@wongfuphil and @thewesleychan, i’ve said it a million times, but i can’t thank you enough for believing in me enough to entrust the role of “joanna” to me, and to have taken a chance on me time and time again over the years. i’ve learned so much from these experiences and from you both, and making that series was one of the coolest experiences of my life. you guys are the best. and @harryshumjr!!! thank you for being the best possible teammate in this, for your coaching and mentoring and being so patient with me as i learned the ropes. and miss @manonmathews, how glad am i to have met your magical self through all of this!!

I've been working on patience
Trying to trust in the timing of my tiny existence
I come alive
.
I found peace in the twilight
I found peace in the quiet things
How could I wish away all the in between

popping in from pajama land to let you know that my episode of the @wedivedeeper podcast is out ♡ @katemcgill, whom i adore to no end, started this podcast in order to skip past the small talk and get to the real stuff—and that we did. so grateful to have had the opportunity to chat with her about (and further process) some of the heavier moments of my life, namely my experience in jakarta potentially facing jail time and dealing with my mom’s diagnosis with a rare blood disease when i was in high school.
.
you can find the episode on spotify, your podcast app, itunes, or even watch it on youtube :) search “we dive deeper kina grannis” and dive in if you’re in the mood to go deep with us 😬 (and while you’re at it, check out the other episodes because they are all so real and inspiring!)

all this time, i’ve been staring at the minute hand⁣⁣
oh, what a crime⁣⁣
that i can’t seem to understand that life is in the waiting⁣⁣
.
new reimagined version of my song “in the waiting” is here :) watch the full lyric video on youtube—link in bio.⁣⁣
.
sending out lots of love <3⁣⁣
.
mega thanks to @christophandersson of @jomemusic for creating this magical version for me 🙏🏻

It’s near impossible for me to get through this song without shedding a few tears, and this performance was no exception.
.
I had the honor of performing my song “For Now” to a room full of incredible women at @TheLittleMarket’s celebration of #internationalwomensday this week, and feeling the presence of so many inspiring women surrounding me while singing this line gave it even more weight.
.
“And I’ll be happy if I look back on my life—been a sister, been a mother, been a wife.”
.
I am grateful (and hopeful) to get to embody each of these identities in my lifetime. What amazing roles we get to play; we’re pretty magical and powerful creatures.

<3

i love you more than i have ever found a way to say to you ♡

Just posted a video for my song "Valentine" featuring 142 super sweet Valentine's wishes from people around the world. (Ok most of them are scrolling at the end of the video because my song is like 2 seconds long, but still!) Honored to be part of spreading all this love around today!
.
Some thoughts on Valentine's Day--Yes, it's a silly arbitrary day. Yes, card and candy companies are super cashing in on it. Yes, you should love and appreciate the people around you EVERY day. But, YES, I ALSO think it's a beautiful excuse to show a little extra love because why not?! Give your mom and dad a hug, tell your siblings what they mean to you, send some gratitude out to your friends, partner, pets, YOURSELF. Just do it! Life is short and there are so many ways to celebrate the love we have in our lives. Pick a flower! Eat a treat! Write yourself a love note!
.
Ok, that's all for me. Sending mega love out in all directions today.
.
p.s. Special thanks to the folks in KG Records who shared their Valentine's wishes with me to include in the video! 🙏🏻

p.p.s. happy valentine’s day, @imaginaryfuture

Was a little hard on myself yesterday so I thought I’d try to show myself a little extra love today. I’ve done masks maybe all of three times in my adulthood, but it sounded fun to pretend to be a real grown-up lady who takes care of herself today, so I gave it a shot. Who knows if this will do anything at all to my skin, but the gesture feels nice! I also dumped a bunch of random oils in my hair because apparently hair masks are a thing.
.
Here’s to self-care. You deserve it, too. Hope you're being kind to yourself out there. ♡
