Seattle Adventures

Hello World!

   Last Monday I had the magnificent honor of being invited to hear live classical music played at the Seattle Chamber Music Society with some dear friends of mine.  

Me oh my giddy Aunt was it a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!
 
To start off the night, I was dropped off at a bestie's house where we got all 'dolled up.' 
 

Complete in heels, a borrowed dress, fancy hair, and makeup.

Me, JoAnna, and Elizabeth.

The night's program.

During the intermission break, JoAnna and I were able to actually MEET and TALK with Johannes Moser, (cellist) and Inon Barnatan (pianist)!!!!! Their duet was by far our favorite. They performance was breath taking and astounding! They both brought so much emotion and passion into the music that they played.  
 
When the whole performance was over, we met up with Johannes again.
 

Did I mention, that Johannes is their second cousin twice removed!?
Yah, I may have fangirled when I got a hug and a pictures. :D
 


 It was amazing being able to first hand meet some famous classical musicians. They were all so easy going, relaxed and humble. It was a truly unforgettable night with many wonderful memories. 
 
I'm honored by now being an official member of the family since I have met the famous cousin.

Photoshoot Summer 2015

Hello World!

  A friend of mine has been super interested in photography of late, and was wondering if I minded being a model for one of her photo-shoots. My answer? A whole hearted YES! I love photography, whether being the one behind or in front of the camera. Emma is such a blast to work with too! She is willing to tell me when a face doesn't look as flattering as what I have pictured in my mind, or to tell me to not move a muscle as what I am doing is perfect. Lots of times she has to tell me to do a 'serious face now' as I burst out laughing so easily with her. So here is a shout-out to her and her lovely blog. I had an awesome time being your model Emma, and can't wait for out next chance to do another shoot together. :)

Is anyone there?

 Hello World!

  I know, it has literally been forever since I last posted. But honestly, it is SO hard to think of something to blog about! It's been a little tricky for me to blog as well, since I am NO writer. Let me tell you, it is no easy task trying sound like yourself while using correct grammar and punctuation, and trying sound like an interesting and fun blogger! Sheesh!
Who knew blogging was so much work?
Anywhoot! I have been busy of late, so that is also the reason for lack of posting.
 
Here are some of the things that I have been busy with;
 
Reading...




Such a good read! Thanks mama for the suggestion. :)




I finally finished the sequel! 




I just started this one.

Learning...
 
 




These are a couple of the songs I am teaching myself.

 Listening... 




I really like them...
I decided to try listening to Elvis again ... And I still don't like him.



His song "The Way You Look Tonight" = Swoon worthy.
 
Creating...




Washi Tape is my new best friend. :)






A friend is paying me to make her some skirts ... and this is some of the fabric for them.


Shopping...
 
 We spontaneously went to some garage sales this morning.  And these were my finds.  



A tank.
 
 


A dress.




An anklet.



A pair of gold earrings.



A pair of mirrored silver earrings.


And that is what I have been up to. Besides enjoying the glorious sunshine. :)
