Knowing that someone is always there to catch you when you fall is assuring as life is filled with unpredictable roads and cliffs. With one wrong slip, you find yourself descending into a canyon of empty thoughts. When you finally reach the bottom, you realize that you are trapped, and you ask yourself what steps you should take to begin the climb. You stand there. Motionless. Suddenly, you are offered a helping hand… Together, you reach the top of the mountain. Together, you overcome all of life’s problems… all because of a friend...
Feeling thankful today for the
really great people
in my life who
encourage me to defeat the
negative thoughts that somehow
discover the way into my head. With the
support of true friends, positivity always prevails!
“The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I realize that the first day of Spring was yesterday, but it is never too late to share the adoration and happiness of this beautiful time of year. As the flowers transform the world into an array of color, never walk past a single petal without recognizing how fortunate you are to witness such a magnificent gift from God.
Wishing you all a beautiful Spring. 🙂

“Sometimes you don’t know what steps to take.
Sometimes you are not sure what choices to make,
because the decisions that you choose now can effect your future ways.
This contemplation can put you in a daze
as you stare into this maze
For some reason, I felt the desire to rhyme today…
“A woman came from man’s rib.
Not from his feet to be walked on.
Nor from his head to be superior.
But from his side to be equal,
under his arm to be protected,
and close to his heart to be loved…”

This photo was taken by me, but the original post/quote can be found above! I hope that you all have a lovely Valentines Day & Ash Wednesday and are able to spend time with that special someone. 🙂
It is absolutely crazy to look at the calendar and be able to say,
Swan lake will be onstage exactly two weeks from today…
Time has managed to escape so quickly, and we are racing the clock to finish all of our choreography before our upcoming performances. With all of the snow and ice taking away precious days of work, we have officially reached crunch time. It is going to be a chaotic next two weeks…
“I can’t control your behavior;
nor do I want that burden…
but I will not apologize for
refusing to be disrespected,
to be lied to, or to be mistreated.
I have standards; step up or step out.”
This is such a great quote, so I figured that I would post it with this great photo! This was taken a week ago during a photo shoot with the wonderful photographer, Richard Jean-Louis! I am looking forward to continue working with him in the future, and I am excited to share more of this shoot very shortly!
