Music…

Music… The mood booster that always ends your day on a good ‘note’…. The influence of your highly off-pitch voice screaming lyrics into your imaginary microphone. You think you are having a great time until you realize all of the windows of your house are open and all of your neighbors can hear you *cough*. ANYWAY, I wanted to dedicate this post to all of those music lovers out there who are always searching for new songs… Enjoy!

Holiday Wishes

I hope that all of my followers, visitors, family, and friends had a wonderful Christmas weekend! It was so wonderful to host our Christmas Eve dinner this year, and I had a great time eating too much food….and cookies…. and pie…. but lets not talk about my diet on the holidays… ANYWAYS! I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a wonderful last seven days of 2017! 🙂

Snowy Saturday

Today, we have over a foot of snow!

It is a pain, but it is so pretty though.

With snow up to my knees,

we don’t have many days like these.

When the flurrying powder covers everything in white,

I am finally experiencing the Christmas delight.

Snowman creating.

Cookie baking.

This is the best Christmas in the making.

It has been a snowy Saturday morning, as the snow continues to fall from the heavens. We now have over a foot of snow on the ground, and we are watching that number continue to grow.

It is truly a Marshmallow world, you guys. Stay warm and safe this magical weekend! 🙂

ARRIVED!

The weekend, that I have been anxiously waiting for, has finally arrived. It is going to be an incredibly busy next few days!

Tonight, we are performing one 8pm show on top of a 5pm dress rehearsal… Tomorrow, we will have three shows on top of ANOTHER dress rehearsal… At times like these, I am so thankful to be double casted! My friend and I switch back and forth between Gerda and corps de ballet roles. I love having the opportunity to portray so many unique characters in a single weekend (sweet & shy, icy & evil, graceful & comforting, etc.)!

Wish me luck everyone!!

Hopefully, our production of Snow Queen will turn out “nice”. 😉

Friday Finds

I could not help but to share this… The Piano Guys truly gave this song life and magic; I loved every second of it.

*It IS possible to tell a story without saying a single word…

I hope that you enjoy this beautiful, Friday Find as much as I did! 🙂

Hurricane Irma

“When you face difficult times, know that challenges are not sent to destroy you. They are sent to promote, increase, and strengthen you…”

~Joel Osteen

When we are faced with bad situations, we often find ourselves questioning, “how could GOD ever allow this to happen?” We become angry at the Lord, as we look around at the stormy skies surrounding us. The fact is, we will never completely understand GOD’s plan for our lives, but we must remember that everything happens for a reason. Hurricane Irma may brought structural damage, but it has also washed ashore a whole new reminder that we are a team. So many people from multiple countries have come together to protect/ assist each other with this storm. Don’t ever forget that there is a very good reason for this, even if it is unclear at the moment. Be positive and safe as we continue to recover from this disaster.

“When you go through deep waters. I will be with you.”

~Isaiah 43:2

New Birds!!!!!

kiwi&olive

Welcome home Kiwi and Olive!!!!

I am so thankful that I was finally able to adopt you… I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am to finally bring you two precious angels home. I have owned parakeets since I was just a little girl, so this past year has been very lonely for me. I need to let you know that I went through so much to get you here, and it was not an easy roller coaster ride of convincing! I promise that my sister and I will take VERY good care of you, and we are looking forward to the time that we will spend together.

It is going to be a great new school year now that I have someone to study with again, and I can’t wait to experience Sophomore year with you guys… I love you Kiwi and Olive. Welcome to your new home!
