My kid. My beautiful Angie. She had her first, legit gig over the weekend. She was fantastic.. the whole band was amazing. I have some videos of the performances on instagram here, here, & here. We are beyond proud of her and how dedicated she is to her music. School of Rock is a franchise, and it's more fun than say, music theory. It was the only summer activity she asked for. We were more than happy to oblige & support. She has one more show, then it's back piano, clarinet, and vocal lessons.
I'm looking out the window and watching the rain fall. We've been blessed with a dose of chilly, autumn-like weather. I am loving every bit of it. I'll take the cold over the heat any day.
These hummingbirds, though. They are enchanting.
Yesterday, I shared my story behind the photo at She is Three. This month, our theme is She Concealed. It threw the three of us for a loop. We'd love to see your self portraits around this theme. Share them on instagram using the hashtags #sheconcealed & #sheisthreedotcom.
I will be back here on Thursday with my first Curvy Girl post in over 2 months :D
My cousin and her partner were instagramming gorgeous fields of sunflowers last Saturday. I texted them "Where are you and how do I get there?"
Lust? Impulse? Boredom? Inspiration? It was a combination of all of these things that influenced my decision to book up to the Sussex County Sunflower Maze, asap!
Like a good photographer would, I carefully loaded up my camera gear. But unlike an organized photographer, I forgot that I took my memory card out of the camera body. This came to my attention whilst standing in the midst of the sunflower field and reading "No Card" on my LCD screen. Bummer!
Damn. I wanted to stomp around like a two year old, but instead I took a deep breath and reminded myself of where I was. This is visaully stimulating to your senses, Bella. Plus you have your I phone. Chillax. Everything is gonna be ok. Anyway, look at that full on sun. You are so not gonna get a good picture without layering it up with filters.
This is what I captured with my phone + my favorite app: Faded
I realize I am all covered up in black under the blazing sun. This is tick country, I was not taking chances after being bit by one in July.
I also realize that since my Summer blogging hiatus, there hasn't been a curvy girl post. That shall be remedied next Thursday :) Curvy girl is back on.
On my walk through the maze, I found the Sunflower Queen. I was in awe of this girl who radiated light beams of joy. "Can I take your picture?" I asked. "Yea, sure!" We spoke a little bit and she told me she drove all the way from Brooklyn to see the sunflowers. She just got home from Tuscany where she missed their famous sunflower fields. She did not want to let the Summer slip by without seeing at least one sunflower field.
Her lip gloss was the perfect shade of nude, her smile infectious. I said "You look like a Sunflower Princess". She replied "Girl, I am the Queen."
And I thought.. "Yeah. You totally are."
I have a super busy weekend ahead of me, so I will be absent from this space until next Tuesday. I share a lot on Istagram. Follow me there to see what I'm up to.
