“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…”
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!

Despite the wet, windy weather that took over Nashville, we still had a great day exploring Music City. We visited the Ryman Auditorium (“the mother church of country music” since 1892), line danced, and experienced lots of live music. I am so lucky to have seen Preston James perform that night… He made Blake Shelton’s team on Season 11 of my favorite singing competition, The Voice! He is so amazing, and I am so fortunate to have seen this 17 year old star perform right in front of me.
This weekend, we took our final bow for the 2017-18 season, and it was a very bittersweet moment… This season was filled with so many incredible opportunities that I never imagined I would ever receive, and it is crazy to think that it is already over.
Heartwarming memories from my very first principal role from Snow Queen overwhelmed me…
The 4 Little Swan choreography from Swan Lake washed over me…
Flashbacks from Canary Fairy in Sleeping Beauty made my feet start fluttering…
I remembered how proud I was to see my very own choreography about HOUR LIVES take that stage…
I recalled wearing the bubbly head pieces from a mixed rep show…
Dancing as a poppy in the Wizard of Oz was an experience that I will never forget…
Thank you to all of my followers and supporters who have been there for me through it all! It was a great year. 🙂
The 2017-2018 season is quickly coming to an end, and we are mentally/physically preparing ourselves for our last two productions before the curtain closes for the summer. Rehearsals, however, have been delayed, and we now find ourselves trying to whip these shows together before we head back to the theater. On top of all of this chaos, finals week is rapidly approaching…
My brain is spinning…spinning
This is turning into a crazy week!
Wishing you all a very HAPPY EASTER SUNDAY!
Hopefully, everyone had the opportunity to spend this beautiful day with loved ones in the light of Christ. Sending you all many blessings and joy!
“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. 🙂
