New Music - Melody Gardot

I am absolutely in love with Melody Gardot. They did a little promo on her on CBS Sunday morning this weekend. She is a Philly girl, which automatically scores points for me. The story on CBS can be found recapped at this link. Her story is a pretty striking one. She suffered very serious injuries in a crash with a Jeep Cheroke while she was on bike at a Philadelphia intersection. Music was a big part of her recovery and she still deals with constant pain, sensitivity to light and sound as well as additional symptoms of her brain injury. Her story is an amazing one, but so is her music. Her voice is just beautiful. You can see her music video here.

Cupcakes are Back!

Sorry for the horrible picture. I finally had some time this weekend to bake after I don’t know how many months. I also got to try out my new decorator that Evan bought me for Christmas. It is very fancy and I am looking forward to practicing some more advanced frosting techniques. These are just a quick box mix of Devil’s Food Cake and canned Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting. Nothing fancy, just a little sweet to get me through the week.

Dance Performance

As promised, I wanted to share the details for my upcoming performance with the Dragonfly Dance Experiment modern dance company. I never in a million years would have thought I would be performing in a dance show. Last summer, after a gracious invitation from the amazing Megan Morse Jans, I started taking class with the Dragonfly Dance Experiment dancers. I thought that would be enough, but after Megan asked me to rehearse for their upcoming show, I couldn’t say no. If you would have asked me even then if I thought I would ever participate in an evening length dance performance, I would have told you, “Never”. Never say never, my friends. Hope you can make it to the show!
