Ding Dong the Bells Are Gonna Chime!

I attended two weddings this weekend -- my brother Sam's and my cousin Kendra's. It was such a party! More pictures to come, but here are a couple to wet your appetite.

The truest expression of a people is in its dance and in its music. Bodies never lie. ~Agnes de Mille

So dance just happens to be my favorite thing ever ever ever. I love to do it, see it, watch it, etc. -- even when it expresses itself in cheesy dance movies that follow the same plot EVERY time. I can't get enough.

My sister gave me this amazing print for my birthday. I love it so much, and it combines two of my great loves -- art and dance. It's going up in the freshly painted dining room. Thanks Kate!!!

It's just so pretty, Shuttlesworth!

I FINALLY re-painted my dining room! What do you think?

I have been in hate with my dining room for a while and just repainted and put a different table in there. I'm so happy with it.
(sorry don't have a better picture, but you do get to see my lovely sister.)

(next task is to get something on the walls)

I was just reading an excerpt from the book "Perfectly Imperfect" by Lee Woodruff about her sisters. I feel the same! "My sisters are my bones. They finish my sentences, instinctively hear the warning signs in my voice. We still giggle over stupid things — generally, at all the wrong times, like in the middle of a church sermon or a solemn gathering."

So I just bought my first "big-girl" SRL camera and am working on learning the manual functions per my cousin Brit's advice. Brit is my very cool photographer cousin who takes beautiful pictures and has inspired me to dabble. You can check out her work here. Not to mention my other lovely cousin, Heather, who also is a lovely photographer. Check her out here.

So in my effort to "dabble", I discovered this really cool online course called "Unravelling: Ways of Seeing My Self". Take a look here. It's an online photography course with a twist. It's focuses on life/self discovery through photography, which just sounds fun. AND I get to do some writing too. It's perfect.

In Support of Creativity

I was recently watching some clips from the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference, a creativity/innovation conference held each year that attracts leading thinkers/leaders from around the country. I thought, Elizabeth Gilbert's, author of Eat Pray Love, speech was really cool!
