we meet again

novemberhello september

i had been awaiting

your return to

bring back the season that

my heart perpetually yearns

and here we meet again

make your visit true

take the world as your canvas

and paint it brand new

caught in the midst

of the vibrant arrays

i cant help but fall for

your crisp autumn days

…………

If there are any other posts that you would like to see, please don’t hesitate to drop them in the comments section. In the meantime, I hope you guys have a great month, and thanks for reading!

-until tomorrow-

sunset

I spent two weeks up in the mountains letting my mind run free as heavy thoughts vanished beyond the horizon. I found myself drifting with the clouds forgetting everything as I became lost in their ethereal glow… Poetic thoughts began cascading through my mind, and I embraced them despite the occasional absence of paper. As the last ray of sunlight gently caressed the earth, I smiled as it kissed me goodbye and felt comforted by the remnants of such a beautiful day. I watched it fade against the pastel sky and paint a silhouette of the distant mountains. Soon, the warm hues began to dissolve, and the stars began to shine…

I sighed, “until tomorrow”


Already missing this, grandma… Thank you so much for having us over, and I will see you again soon. Love you!

Golden leaves

do you hear that?

the echo of the trees

conversing among each other

dispersing messages in the breeze…

 

do you see that?

the array of golden leaves

painting the earth’s canvas

 letting beauty run free…


I was walking to class the other day, but I had to stop to take a picture of this beautiful moment. It also inspired me to write a poem, so I thought I would share it with all of you.

Also, I am loving this song.

I am in the process of putting together this month’s playlist, so be on the lookout for that as well. I hope you all have a great rest of the week, and thanks for reading!

Do you have any plans for Thanksgiving? What are your thoughts on this post? Did you like the song? Has anything inspired you recently? 

Exploring Cherokee, NC

I spent my long weekend in the mountains of North Carolina where I embraced the peaceful solitude and experienced the traditional artwork and culture of the great Cherokee Indians. It was nice to leave all the stress behind so that I could recharge to tackle another crazy month. I will admit that the lack of phone service during the trip was a struggle for me, but the beautiful weather, scenery, and memories definitely made the trip worthwhile. I especially loved exploring the cultural district of Cherokee where I watched some of the native dances and admired all of the amazing artwork. Hand painted bear statues decorated the town, and the detailing of this one in particular caught my eye. It was also fun to peek inside the small shops and see all of the beautifully handcrafted jewelry, baskets, and pottery.

Hiking up Mingo Falls was another highlight of the trip. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting the waterfall to be as big as it was, so I was really surprised when I saw the view. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I am so glad that I was able to see it.


I hope that you all had a Happy Labor Day! I have lots of exciting content that will be released very soon, so I hope that you stick around. Also, Nutcracker casting came out last week, so I will reveal that very shortly as well. Have a wonderful week, and thanks for reading!

How did you spend your holiday weekend? Have you ever visited Cherokee, NC? Do you enjoy the mountains? Are there any special post requests?

We are almost finished with WEEK 3 of the intensive! I am shocked at how fast these past few weeks have gone, and I am so thankful to have learned as much as I have within this short amount of time. It is going to be great to go home soon and see my parents again, but it’s going to be hard to part with these INCREDIBLE instructors. They are so hands on and focus on a lot of important technical aspects that are so important. I am going to soak up as much as I possibly can as I go into this last week. 🙂 Happy Dancing!

Painting on Water

I saw this video, and I couldn’t help but share!! Watching Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ being painted on water is absolutely astonishing and incredible. I was left speechless and truly inspired; I hope that you all have a similar experience!  Enjoy and please share your thoughts in the comments! 🙂
