Breathe in for Luck

There is always something so nostalgic about going to see a band that you grew up listening to. With each lyric you belt out with the crowd, the energy and emotion seem to carry you.  You become weightless and in the moment, which I suppose is the reason that I've always loved going to concerts.

Country Chic

Home can be anywhere.  It can be where you found your place in the world, where you dreamed of living, the place that always brought you back, or simply where you grew up. They say you don't know where you're going, till you know where you've been. I don't know who they are, and I don't always agree with this they. Though, they definitely have something here. "Where you come from", whether you run from it, or embrace it, it certainly always shapes who you are and who you become. 

Viva Las Vegas

When one of your favorite cousins is getting married and he happens to live in Las Vegas, you go. I'm not from one of those really big, Norman Rockwell sort of families.  Mine is small and unique. My parents come from families with not a lot of kids, who did not have a lot of kids and I was only close these particular cousins growing up, but then they moved.

Brooklyn Mermaid

Growing up on the East End of Long Island, I need to be near the water.  I'm used to the salt air and open space, though that is sort of what I gave up to live in Brooklyn.  I got something totally different and full of its own beauty. I always find a way to swim through.
