Many of you know that lately I have been a single mama. Wes has had three amazing opportunities to sing in Europe and they happened to be clumped together over 5 months. He left at the end of September and won’t be home until March 4th! We thought about visiting him at some point…but… the thought of flying with two young kids…honestly…freaked me out a little. So, we thought instead of that… we would save the money and take an awesome vacation as a family this spring.
It has been hard at times, but mostly ok. Basically, I have been trying to keep busy and distracted.
After a long haul of Opera and Ballet makeup work this past fall and winter, I needed some time off. So, I skipped out on Rigoletto. I miss the opera terribly, but it has been pretty awesome hanging out with the kids and not having to rush off to work. I will be back at it starting with Sleeping Beauty for PNB and almost immediately after, on to the next opera. I feel like if I record our adventures here, it will help me get through the next month and a half.
Here are some pictures from our spontaneous trip to Whidbey Island! While everyone else was watching the Seahawks game, we went to Fort Casey and Ebey’s Landing. Even on a cloudy misty day…it was beautiful!
Thank you Sean (my brother) for the awesome new camera lens!
