Yearly Archives: 2007
Everything has been non-stop this week and somehow, I managed to schedule myself for three different events all in one week on top of last minute Christmas shopping and Christmas of course! Paula and I took Nadia, Eileen and Deja to go see High School Musical on Sunday, Al and I took Mya to go see Princess Wishes on Ice on Christmas Day and I took my “ma-in-law” to go see The Color Purple at the Ahmanson Theater on Wednesday! I know….ridiculous right!? I really can’t complain though, because I absolutely love going to these events! The highlight was The Color Purple hands down! It was amazing and I would go see it all over again times ten! It was a soulful and heartwarming performance with an exceptional cast. Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child played Shug Avery and Latoya London, who was a contestant on American Idol played the part of Celie’s sister, Nettie. If you had to see only one musical this season, I highly recommend The Color Purple! Although it was a Christmas gift for my “ma-in-law”, I made sure I indulged in it as much as I could! I enjoy outings like these and especially when I’m able to share it with family and friends that are near and dear to my heart!
SO! I’ve been so inspired lately by fellow photographers, bloggers and my creative peers that I’ve decided to venture into the world of photography! In retrospect, it is a tad bit scary and intimidating, but once you step foot into something to get a feel of what it is like and you are actually in it~ it’s not so daunting! About a year ago, I made my first Digital SLR purchase and bought the Canon Rebel XTI and I have to say it’s been good to me! I’m superanxious and superambitious at this point, even though I’m still in the process of researching business licenses, requirements, domains, etc. I do think this will be my New Year’s resolution after all! Forget the boring ‘ol dieting, eating better and exercising resolution! I’ve got a better and more creative resolution ahead of me. That should be inspiring enough for me to finally prosper this upcoming year. I am also ecstatic about my first post as a blogger, so to pay homage to that I have to give you a sneak peak of what’s in store by posting a photo from a my recent shoot of the love of my life…my daughter, Mya!
