A friend of mine and her husband are extreme theatre enthusiasts.
They are both actively involved in the theatre scene, have been in countless productions, and are members of the board.
It's quite adorable, actually...
They met at a theatre and got married at a theatre.
A young couple with no kids, who love the stage.
They had been rehearsing all winter for a huge production in which her hubby won the a lead role, so when the weekend before the premiere came around and she asked me if I would like to attend the final dress rehearsal (in which they were allowed to invite close friends and/or family)...
I was all in!
The show was very good, and it got me reminiscing about my childhood. There was always music in our house. I remember my dad was constantly learning a new song, singing whenever he was awake... memorizing lyrics, dashing off for rehearsal with his quartet, or meeting his piano player to practice before church on Sunday.
This made me miss his voice.
It's quite something when you realize how much you really look up to someone.
My dad and I always joke about how we wish our lives were like musicals,
... but I guess my childhood kind of was one :-)

We all know this trilogy was HUGE - I was hesitant to read it due to all the "hype"
Then my curiosity got the best of me ;-)
Of course. lol.
What I found odd about this trilogy was how different each of the books were.
Each seemed to have their own vibe, their own "mood" so to speak - defining a period of the timeline in the relationship between Anastasia and Christian, the two main characters.
While I felt parts of this book were "over the top",... I couldn't put it down.
Some call it smut.
Others say it's a love story.
Truth is, it's definitely both.
and so much more...
It's a fascinating contradiction of a book that keeps you wondering what's next.
I'd recommend this to anyone who doesn't blush over provocative content and "Rated R" behavior ;-)

Last month I received my first Birchbox.
I'm sure you all know what this is but for those who don't: It's one of the many monthly subscription beauty boxes that are swarming the scene.
I received a travel size Juicy Couture "Viva La Juicy" perfume.
(I have this perfume and I love it - so this was great!)
It also came with a:
ModelCo. Lip Gloss
Frownies Rose Water Hydrator Spray
My Prime - Multipurpose Mattifying Moisturizer
Overall, I was pleased with my initial Birchbox delivery :)
..... My February Box should be arriving soon!
