  • A Weekend of Blessings

    It's been a hectic, busy couple of weeks as we steamroll through the summer and toward the fall. Last weekend was full of photo shoots, a massive yard project, and this past week featured freelance work on several different projects.

    Today, Jill and I saw two of our kids in performances — Jeremiah in a ballet showcase this afternoon, followed by Emma in opening night of "Legally Blonde" with Kate, Ben, and Jeremiah in attendance.

    "Legally Blonde," the annual show for teens that is sponsored by the Metropolitan Performing Arts Theatre, was really terrific. Cast 1 — the principals are double cast — was spot on and the show moved well. It was a lot of fun, and we're looking forward to seeing the other cast on closing night next weekend. If you get the chance, see this show at the Workhouse Arts Center before the run ends; you won't regret it.

    Unfortunately, the running and schlepping meant that it's now after midnight and I didn't get the chance to say "Happy Birthday" to my mom, who turned 73 yesterday. But since I know she checks Facebook on her iPhone or iPad before going to bed, I did send her this message:

    "I'm very fortunate. I know that. And I'm extremely fortunate to have a mom I love and admire so much. She has spunk (in this case, I don't hate spunk), chutzpah, and a love for life as she goes into her next year on this earth. It's a little belated on the East Coast, just under the wire on CST, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!"

    This next week has three photo projects on tap, including a child's baptism on Sunday afternoon, plus more freelance writing and work for the publisher's company I represent in the D.C. area.

    It's never boring, that's for sure... And I'm reminded daily of the blessings I have been given.
