Scenes From The Weekend








The weekend, in a nutshell: smiles, laughter, food, wine, sunshine, rainbows, celebrations, family, endings, beginnings, joy, and long car rides with sing-a-longs and scenery that causes your breath to catch in your throat.

No need for captions on these. I think it's evident how much grace and light my beautiful little sister radiates. I can't wait to see her journey unfold in the coming months. She is an astounding performer and a spectacular human being. I am so proud to call her my sister and my best friend.

Love you to the moon and back, Emmie bean. Go share your gift with the world. Je t'aime!

...And because I can't resist a smidge of boasting: She graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theater from one of the most prestigious programs in the country.
