i regret these aren’t the best focused pictures. i quickly took them with my phone. last week beatrice’s dance school performed a charity recital, Faith in Motion. this is her second year going to class, but the first performance i have seen because i have always been back stage. it was breathtaking. i, very honestly, was amazed at how good the girls were, especially the older ones. and, b’s class was absolutely adorable. they were soooo cute. brian and i were so proud of our little dancer!

we usually take beatrice somewhere to celebrate post performance, like Chops or Christopher’s for desert. but, tonight we had sweet Whitaker. so, El Som for dinner it was! Tana and Whitaker snuggled on one side of the booth, while Papa, Beatrice and I sat on the other side. it was a great night. :)

Beatrice debuted her dancing skills before her parents last week. It was the first time we have seen her in class. It was so much fun. We were really impressed. Mom kept Whitaker so that we could fully enjoy the performance. Brian and I both smiled the entire hour. It was so funny.

These were impromptu. Brian recorded from his phone so ignore the clarity. I hope you enjoy them!!!

So the last few weeks I was feeling drained and uninspired so I looked for inspiration. And I found it. I have a few places to look for daisies of happiness, daffadils of amazement, and poppies of inspiration. When I am feeling blah, I often listen to music, read books and blogs, play on youtube, go for a jog or piddle about the back yard. Here’s one of the trinkets in my pick-me-up box, one of the flowers in my garden.  

Here’s a youtube place that I visit. It’s one that I love. Alessandra (Ferri) is beautiful and so is Sting.
