Viva Fiesta!

What a great day today was. We went to the RiverWalk in San Antonio and enjoyed just about everything there is to enjoy. We had breakfast with Mimosas, walked the entire circle of the RiverWalk, did some shopping, ate Mexican food, went on a riverboat ride and watched some TV in the hotel with a baby sleeping soundly right next to us. Will was such a trooper all day. He didn't have anything according to his normal routine but he just went along for the ride with a smile on his face. Since we came to San Antonio during Fiesta we got to experience several additional treats, the first was a river parade and then the Mariachi Bands on the river boats. We also went to the Mexican market for a bit.

Even though we were so close, we didn't see The Alamo this trip, unless you count the Alamo in the play area that Will conquered (see picture). Again I declare, today was a great day and I look forward to many more like it in the coming years. Viva Fiesta!

Bumper Sticker

I am an Oboe and English Horn player. I am married to an Orchestral conductor. We find this bumper sticker to be funny. I think some people would agree and find it humorous while others would think we are geeky. It doesn't matter if you know the pieces mentioned on it or not. It's really about the absurdity it represents. Mixing terms usually heard in context with modern day music like "blows away" and the absurdly long titles and descriptions of the pieces. I guess this is a funny concept to us because this makes me laugh every time I see it.

Why do I need a personal website?

I am setting up a personal website for myself.  What a strange thing to do.  I have never needed a website before.  I guess I feel like putting myself out there more, for some reason.  It's not done yet, but as I am designing it and filling it with meaningful content, I am wondering to myself.. who is ever going to look at this and if they do why are they looking?  I love my life and I think it is a great thing to make a record of, why would the rest of the world find it interesting?  Maybe they won't.  Maybe it will just be my husband, and my parents who read this.  That would be OK.

I'll share a link in my next post.  Look out WWW... here I come :-D

Hello World!

Hi!  My first blog.  I feel so um... I don't know... Grown up?  Maybe that's it.  It's like my first time ordering from the regular menu, instead of the kid's menu.  It's like buying my first used car.  It's like paying my first insurance bill.  You don't mind doing it but you secretly wish you didn't have to.  I am most likely going to post a lot about my son so let me introduce you to him now.  His name s a will and as of today he is 13 months and 18 days old.  These past 414 days have been the best of my life.  I am looking forward to sharing all of the great moments yet to come.

Talk to you again soon!
