I love my brother! He is a great encourager.

Just wanted to give a shout out to my favorite brother Matthew and thank you for the encouragement at GC last week. I've seen better days but I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for being you and I love you lots (even our silly pictures from when we were kids). Love, me.

You Belong in New York City

You're an energetic, ambitious woman.

And only NYC is fast enough for you.

Maybe you'll set yourself up with a killer career

Or simply take in all the city has to offer.

Yesterday I had the privilege of going to Sophia's ballet and tap class to watch her practice for her dance. She is doing exceptionally well and was praised by her teachers (quite often). Her teacher Tyler sitting next to her is one of my Junior High Students who is an amazing young lady. I had to bring my camera to capture the moment. She would delicately and gently skip across the floor and move her arms elegantly. I am trying to embellish the moment (it was too cute). She is warming up to the class and now mom can finally watch too. She seems to be enjoying it and if she continues to practice she will be an excellent performer and dancer like her mommy. Thanks for inviting me Sabrina and I am so proud to be Sophie & Mattie's Auntie. I am so grateful to be close to them and watch them grow into beautiful little ladies.

Stretching and warm up time is very important.

Mattie wants to be a dancer too. It's hard for her to watch and not get on the dance floor.

Ready for the 1st day of school!

Matthew and I ready for the first day of school. I think I was in 3rd or 4th grade and Matthew right behind me. He loved his Mr. T lunchbox and mine was Cabbage Patch Kids. Life was so simple those days.
