just a little trip to the great southern utah...

the dust...it's like art.


Some dreams are not meant to come true...

I seriously had a dream last night that I got pulled over by a cop on the freeway. And guess what happened this morning. Awesome.


these are some of my favorite pictures from our wedding, so far...we will be getting the actual photos from our actual photographer on sunday, but we were lucky enough to have a second photographer in colorado and a third photographer in salt lake (my friend christine olson). the above and next few pictures are in thornton, colorado.

the rest of the pictures are in salt lake on the day of our wedding, actually before we were sealed.

this last picture was our "first meeting." it was the first time we saw each other on our wedding day.

Watch this video!!! I especially appreciate the second half.

"The world would be a miserable place WITHOUT THE ARTS." - Elder Boyd K. Packer.

I've often thought to myself how crazy it is that I'm still dancing...after 20 years since my first dance lesson...The answer is the space in my soul that the arts feed.

Art. The definition is "the expression or application of human skill and imagination typically in a visual form, producing works to be appreciated for their beauty and emotional power." Why do humans continually have a desire to express themselves? For me, when i feel something deeply, it almost itches at me to get outside of my body. Whether it's love, anger, hurt, happiness, fun. I want others to see it and experience it too. Perhaps that's why I love dancing so much. And

I just found this video online but it really struck me! The choreography is amazing. There is so much going on; I think I could watch this dance over and over and over and still find something new. It's itneresting to see the formation and growth of CONTEMPORARY dance. Contemporary dance is the major form of dance today. It is basically a conglomeration of all dance forms. When I watch this dance, I see ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, and hip-hop. As dance matures into the 2010's I only imagine more of a fusion. All forms are coming together and what it's creating is a union of human expression that goes far beyond what each of those forms could produce by itself. I see so much emotion and expressional value in the dancing of today.
