alright already!

I know. promises were made. I broke them. deal.


here I am again.

It's been months but they've been mostly filled with work and work has mostly consisted of a LOT of laundry and ironing and as boring as that is to DO, it's only MORE boring to read about so you'll forgive me for not sharing much.
but today! ah today has been a LOVELY day! nothing too spectacular just all of the things that make sundays my favorite:

sweet, sweet morning time with Papa, check out Bethel Church for a glimpse

good time at Church! including a musical filled sermon today! (Sound of Music and Pippin! what?)

picnic in the park with great friends



As Christabel and the Jons say,
I'm thankful,
so thankful,
for my life

still alive....sad, but alive...

hello again!
after so long of not posting, I don't know if anyone even sees this blog anymore. I would feel bad except I know that I warned you! I was a costume monster the last few weeks! The show went really well and I have some great photos that I will post soon.

After that, I have spent every possible moment with Bini and Domi before they went back to Germany on Tuesday. Dave and I took them to the airport and it was a terrible but still fun goodbye. One of the worst things in my life is the constant saying goodbye. It seems like, due to my leaving or theirs, I am always separated from the people I love the most. The thing I wish for most is a way to lose that without losing who I am....

Flowin like a river!

oooh the creative juices are just flowing all around!!! After a couple weeks of utter frustration about my work situation, things are all falling into place! God's favor was on me huge time yesterday during a meeting I had about a job and instead of (or along with) all these administrative type jobs I'm shuffling around trying to pay my bills, I'm also now a real live Costume Designer! I'm gonna be working on a production of The Amen Corner by James Baldwin at City College in Harlem. I rode the train part home way with the woman who I was meeting with and it was all I could do to keep it together and not dance around on the subway! The show opens in March and I'll do my best to keep everyone updated but if you don't hear from me for a while, you'll know why!

Also, my Etsy shop Roses Are Blue had its first sale! AND Bini's shop Herzrasen is up and running! Go see her awesome ipod pouches, journals, macbook covers, and more. She is such an amazing and inspiring friend! Look out for a tear-filled post when she and Domi move back to Germany....

creativity and inspiration!!!!

no no no....I'm not reverting to my 2008 style blog updates where they come every 2 months.... I've just been spending all my internet time the past couple weeks looking for jobs AND-cue herald trumpets-setting up my etsy shop!!!!! Go check out Roses Are Blue!!! My friends Bini (her shop will be open soon too!) and Domi have been so awesome in helping me set it up. From inspiration to photography we have been together all the way (and every day!) and I'm so grateful! It's so cool to have such creative and talented friends. I got so lucky somehow to have the people around me that I do. They are all so inspiring in their own ways.

Here's one who is currently blowing my mind with her talent. I've known Shannon for most of my New York life and when she left to go on tour this year I knew I'd miss her but I didn't know how much! She was in town for a gig last night and I got to see her play and she was amazing as per usual. This video isn't from last night but it is my favorite new song of hers. Enjoy!
