A New Update Has Finally Arrived!

YAY!! I am so exciting to be blogging again! A lot has happened since my last update a century ago. First off, I am thrilled to say that I have completed a semester at Moorpark College which leaves me with one more semester there and then I'll be able to graduate with my A.A. in General Studies and my A.S. in Child Development! Hurray! I have been singing more lately as well! I sang a solo at our ward Relief Society enrichment dinner and my sis Kira, brother Jamin and I sang Silient Night for his singles ward in Simi Valley. It was the first time we all sang together and it was a very special experience. Our parents were there which was a real blessing for us all! I will be singing Friday night for our ward Christmas dinner and concert and I think Kira will be accompanying me to a song she wrote. I am feeling so blessed with my recent opportunities to sing. That is my true passion!

I'm so glad to see a post from you!! You really have been busy. That is really great about you singing again. I feel like I haven't sung in forever because I had to stop singing in my choir when I got pregnant because of how sick I was. I hope to hear more about you soon. I love your brown wig, by the way, it looks really good on you! :)

Davianne said...

Whoa!! That is not a good picture of me! Please everyone erase it from your memories!
I'm so glad you've gotten to sing so much lately! I wish I could be there to hear you. I always loved when you and Kira would sing in church. Miss you! :(

That's so funny! You know, Emma is friends with my girls. I remember you telling me the story of when you met her. Emma Riach, right? She's a cutie. I could totally see her coming up to you and talking to you in a sweet, Emma way...

Her mom, Suzie, is directing Cinemagic this year. She works with Jonathan in cubscouts and Shakirra used to babysit Emma ALL THE TIME. Small, small world.
