Autumn Thoughts…

“October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came- The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The sunshine spread a carpet, And every thing was grand; Miss Weather led the dancing; Professor Wind, the band…”

~George Cooper

October is inching closer by the day, and the Autumn season has officially begun! I never fail to see the magic of this season, and I love watching the vibrant leaves transform before my eyes. Here is to the apple cider sipping, pumpkin carving, homemade pie season that always brings happy memories…

Enjoy your first day of fall!

Last Few Rays

Lately, I have been soaking up the last few rays of summer freedom by: relaxing by the poolside, celebrating a birthday party, taking a trip to the movies with friends, and bringing home a new pet (she is will be featured very shortly). Although dance has been keeping me on my toes, Monday marks the very first day of school. This year is going to be a little different, and my education plan has taken a major U-turn…

After 4 years of homeschooling, I am returning to school. I am so humbled to say that I have been admitted into a dual enrollment program at the college. This means that I should be able to graduate high school with my associates/2 year degree. It will definitely be an adjustment, and I am not sure what to expect. However, I am up for the challenge, and I am looking forward to beginning my first semester at the campus.

Have YOU started school yet? Have YOU done anything fun lately?

Thanks for reading!

After 2 Years…

Water balloons began the celebration with a splash as we raced across the yard, drenched in colorful rubber pieces.

A delicious buffet of home cooked food followed this refreshing amusement.

Then, bets were placed as cardboard “soldiers” were sent flying high in the air after being released from a small firework. Wind carried them off as people shouted in hope that their parachute would land nearest to the chalk marked X.

The sky was suddenly glittering with hundreds of patriotic fireworks that exploded in the night. My face lit up. I was so happy to be home.

This was the first 4th of July that I spent with my family in two years, so it was definitely a special treat to be home. The afternoon was absolutely spectacular, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thank you so much, Mom & Dad! I love you both so much! 🙂

Sweet 16 celebration. ‘End of the Year’ party. Graduation parties.

It was a great week, and I am so glad to have spent it with such an awesome group of people. I am so thankful for everyone who invited me to celebrate with them, because I had an absolute blast (and I even got to reunite with a really close friend!)

Thank you for all of the memories… Thank you for all of the smiles… Thank you for always being there for me… I love you all!

International Dance Day!

Happy International Dance Day!!!

I am so fortunate, blessed, and incredibly honored to be able to say that I am a dancer. This art form has changed my life, and the experiences that I have had will be treasured in my heart forever. Although it can be very harsh at times, there is nothing that I love doing more than dancing. It is my passion. It is my dream. To be honest, I am not sure how far it will take me, but I know that God has a reason for leading me where I am today. I couldn’t be more thankful, and I am excited to continue my journey through the world of dance!

*I recently discovered this group contemporary piece online, and I have been looking forward to sharing it with all of you. I really enjoyed watching this, and I hope that you all do as well! HAPPY INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY (once again)!
