Slow to Speak
It’s with a bit of a heavy heart that I write today. I write because I am so so so saddened by the events that have taken place in Manchester. My heart goes out to all those affected either by loss of a loved one, the terror of being in a situation like that, or even just realizing how pure hatred can alter hearts and minds for the worst. I won’t sit here and think that by chance, something like this happened or that on the very same day, I opened my daily devotional to read
Contrary To My Facebook Page
Contrary to what I put on my Facebook page, I don't always have it together. I don't always look beautiful, I don't always have a smile on my face. My Facebook is filled with my highlights. The edited part of my life full of filters and happy moments. But let me tell ya, there are plenty of things that don't go on Facebook because they aren't things I want you to see or know about. I'm here to say that's ok. As I am getting older, yes I said it... older, I am starting to real
What's behind the the great show?
Good morning beautiful people and happy Sunday! It's a beautiful morning here in Western Kansas and my heart is sooo full today. We had our first show for our spring recital last night and guys, it was perfect. Literally blew me away! Do you ever those moments in life? Moments where your heart is so full it's sure to burst. My bursts usually end in tears which is exactly how I spent my evening. As I sat on the couch and reflected on the evening, I was a sobbing mess! My heart
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
Happy Friday Eve! I know that Monday's were supposed to be my blog day but I like to write when I feel compelled by a certain topic and this week has presented itself with topic that is soooooo evident in our everyday lives. TEAMWORK! It's in our homes, workplaces, ball fields, or wherever else the world takes you. An element of life that brings about diversity and adversity. It's not always pleasant but so necessary. At home, it's in a marriage. At work, it's in the relation
Live A Little
Happy Friday eve! So many things to look forward to this weekend with our First Annual Mother Daughter Brunch, I am beyond ready to get this weekend off and rolling. Not only do we have the brunch coming up but we have recital in two weeks and rehearsals are in full force. Such a busy busy time but all the more ways to rejoice in life! In times of sheer chaos, which I am sure you all can relate to. It's so important to ask yourself are you working to live or living to work? W
Grab a shovel, we're diggin'.
Deepness, wisdom, understanding, intelligence... all words that have similar meaning to depth. As a person who is constantly trying to dig, I feel that most people are very uncomfortable with this idea of really getting down in there. I only bring this to light today because depth is crucial in our journey to a better us. Digging in is crucial. It is the main component in really connecting with something outside of yourself. Don't agree? When is the last time you really felt
"A creative person has to create. It doesn't really matter what you create. If such a dancer wanted to go out and build the cactus gardens where he could, in Mexico, let him do that but something creative has to go on." - Katherine Dunham As dancers, we must feel the need to always create. Create a new step, style, routine, look, or anything else for that matter. We must always feed the creative spirit. It is something that is inside of us, a flame that cannot be put out. If
The Love of Dance
Hey all! I know it has been insanely too long since my last post and I have no idea why... Oh wait, winter recital. That's why. Ha! We were so busy with starting the studio up and getting ready for our recital that I have completely neglected my blog. I apologize because this is one of my favorite things about getting to have our own website. I love writing. I may not have the best grammar but I absolutely love getting to share little tidbits of my life that others may be abl
Hey all, Very eventful weekend for me here in the big city of Goodland! :P I watched two very good friends say their vows in front of God, friends, and family. I also got to take in a local dance recital which was definitely entertaining! I absolutely love watching others express themselves in the art form of dance. They all did a great job! Last night I had time to take in a movie I stumbled upon on Netflix and it was very good. Long story short, a man is a collector of port
In the words of Rihanna, WORK.
Hey all! Stumbled upon this photo today and hello, fell in love! It stands so true for dance and life in general. As a young adult, I am just getting to the part where my parents knew a thing or two in what they chose to teach me! Work ethic was a huge part of that process. All those early mornings with bed head and my super cool outfit that consisted of silk pajamas with my muck boots (styling right!?!), feeding animals or cleaning pens, it all meant something. WORK! That's
