This month was a little crazy in our world, but I truly loved (almost) all of it!
My month started with a birthday celebration with my friend Michela that involved so much delicious food, amazing people, the most hilarious game in the universe, and a BOUNCY HOUSE!!! It was pretty epic and an awesome way to start the month off right!
Then there was Thanksgiving, which was extra delightful this year for some reason. We ate good food, of course, but best of all we were able to hang out with both of our families. Every so often I realize how much of a true blessing it is that Christopher’s and my family live close enough that we can see both sides on the major holidays. It sometimes feels overwhelming schlepping ourselves back and forth, but in reality it’s one of the coolest things about living where we live – our family is always nearby. <3 This year I was just extra grateful for that.
Shortly after Thanksgiving, I jumped into tech week (AKA the week where you live at the theatre, basically) for the production of A Christmas Carol that I’m stage managing. Everything is pretty chaotic during this week, but it went really well and we opened with an awesome show this past weekend! My director Kelsey (who’s amazing) and our phenomenal cast and crew really pulled together and made it happen! I’m very excited for the coming weeks of performances!
And probably most massively, I announced my 2018 plans on my blog! (Read that post here) I’m so grateful for the amazing, positive, encouraging responses I’ve gotten from all of you and I truly can’t thank you enough for your belief in me for this new adventure! I’m super excited for everything 2018 has to bring and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of it! 🙂
