Five Things Friday

  1. Something I Love

It is not often that my entire family is in one place, and any chance we get to enjoy some time together is so precious. We’ve taken the past week as a family to relax and enjoy the city of Las Vegas, and it’s been an absolutely marvelous time. The weather has been beyond perfect, and we even got a little sprinkle of rain here in the desert! We’ve seen a show, pigged out at a famous Las Vegas buffet, gone to the Marvel station and experience, explored, and just loved our time together. I will treasure these memories forever.

2. Something I’m Inspired By

I am just in awe of the sheer talent and artistry of the brilliant Sabina Vafina. She is truly a force of nature and I am still speechless on what she was able to create for my little dance collective. I cannot begin to tell you how much I valued our collaboration and I am honored to have been a part of her canvas. She is… wow. She just amazes me. Here is a photo that she did for us in a patch of heaven down some back roads in North Alabama.

This pose is inspired by a strong woman from Alabama, Zelda Fitzgerald - taken from her sketch Three Ballerinas. The Jellybean Dance Collective is performing our interpretation of Zelda Fitzgerald’s sketch on June 8 at The Dance Foundation. Come on out, y’all!

3. Something I’ve Got Going On

I was absolutely honored to be featured on People of Alabama, a project of the Alabama 200 organization that shares the stories of our Sweet Home state. It is such a lovely platform to share and listen to the people around you and learn so much about the world we inhabit. Read my story on People of Alabama’s Instagram and Facebook or catch it in Sunday’s Birmingham, Mobile, and Huntsville newspapers.
