Happy Tuesday

23 more days and I'll be in Kauai! I can't wait to go hiking and see some beautiful waterfalls.

Looking Back

The other day I came across a small box filled with my baby and growing up pictures. They are old school and I love them because of their character. The pictures were taken in Russia as I was growing up and they are thick. They are printed on thick picture paper and they are thick with memories. Some have old coffee stains, some are missing corners, some are faded, and some have few things written on the back of them. My grandmothers handwriting is beautiful and I miss it. Looking at these pictures fills my heart with gratitude. This one is one of my favorites!(my brother Pavel and I)
I remember this old lawn chair and picking lilacs for my grandmother. I am so grateful for my great life. I'm grateful for the bad and I'm even more grateful for the good. I'm blessed to have amazing family, here and Russia. Both have taught me so much! Thank you for inspiring me to be the individual that I am becoming.


Happy Tuesday!

I can't wait for this little thing to arrive! It's an instant camera and I'm so excited!!!
Happy Tuesday Side Note: In a month I'll be on a warm beach in Hawaii! Oh goodness! I can't wait!


Melt My Heart- David Gray

At the beginning of the month Brandon and I went to the David Gray concert! We ran into my buddies Mike and Kim, Jeph and Venita. It was a fantastic evening and music was outstanding! I love David Gray and his music, so good.
The opening band was Lisa Hannigan and she was amazing! I've never heard of her before this night and man she was good! She played this mini organ and it sounded really good. (the organ is to the right of her in the picture, it was rad!)
David Gray didn't disappoint either. Man he is good. Here are some pictures from his show.

Thanks for an awesome night!

BOO! Happy Halloween!

My friends and I got together before halloween and carved pumpkins. As you can see the results are pretty awesome!
My mummy pumpkin!
Brandon free-handed the trumpet pumpkin. I think it looks really good! He has a talent!

Brandi Carlile

Way back in September I had the chance to go and see Brandi Carlile. She is one amazing singer. I absolutely love her voice. Brandon, JJ, JK and I met up at the Depot and danced the night away! I've never been to this venue before and would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to get close to the band and have great sound. Here are some pictures from the night:
Brandi and one of the twins (her guitar players are twins):
I though this one was cool looking:
Rocking out with the other twin:
Thanks for an awesome concert!
