Las Vegas shows!

I love being entertained, and I'm fortunate to live in a city with such exciting and inspiring things to see all the time. My wonderful boyfriend surprised me with both of these shows recently (he's a keeper!), and I wanted to share. Enjoy!

Note -- I don't think Todd really expected to enjoy Jersey Boys... he did it for me. Well, he LOVED it. We are still talking about it and playing the soundtrack constantly. He had plenty of praise afterwards but I specifically remember him saying "the pace was absolutely stellar." You have NO idea how grateful I am to have found a man who can appreciate theatre! I thank my lucky stars every day!

The Joys of Seeing

"When I see works that come close to my heart, that I think are really fine, I have the strangest reaction: which is not always exhilarating, it is sort of like being hit in the stomach. Feeling a little nauseous. It's just this sort of completely overwhelming feeling, which then I have to grope my way out of, calm myself down, and try to approach it scientifically, not with all my antennae vulnerable, open... What comes to you after looking at it calmly, after you've really digested every nuance and every little thread, is the total impact. When you encounter a very great work of art, you just know it and it thrills you in all your senses, not just visually, but sensually and intellectually."

New necklace

Found in a little store in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I grew up on a street named after Gone with the Wind, so it's twice as nice!

Update on the house

I painted the dining room a color called "Ocean" to match the slate in the middle of the table. I shouldn't really say room.. It's not a separate room, in fact the front door is just to the right of this pic. The table is the first thing you see when you walk in so it has to look nice!

Also, some lovely peach trees are blooming in the yard.
