Capri

posted on: Monday, October 15th, 2012

Friends…
I had the great pleasure to go to Capri for the weekend with my hubby. CAPRI! I’ve always heard that it was one of the most beautiful places, and they didn’t lie! I told Brian that I thought God may have started creation right there (after He went toTrinidad, of course…)!  It is beautiful. the weekend began with rain, but even in the rain the island was glorious. Even more than that… the people were so caring and sweet; all they wanted was to ensure that we had the best experience on their island. They’re so proud of it, and they should be!

 

We were entrusted into the care of the sweetest couple, who were kind enough to take time out of their Sunday to show us around the island.  We went into museums, stood at the edge of cliffs, visited the monastery, walked into the most beautiful little church, and got access to a room with the most spectacular paintings. With all the turns and curves of the cliffs, there came a point while we were driving when I wasn’t sure that lunch was going to stay with me, but it did!  We’re all thankful for that:)!
At the end of it, Aldo (my sweet tour guide) took me to a little store called Fiore, where they not only sell beautiful “capri sandals,” they also make them. So, the cobbler sat there, and made a pair of sandals for me…monogrammed and all! I’ll always have a story when I wear them.
So, there was my adventure for the weekend. A little time in glorious Capri, with my darling husband (he keeps getting hotter, by the way…:-)), meeting some sweet people, eating way too much delicious pasta and pizza, and standing in awe of creation….
How small am I when I stand in the center of it and I look around me.
How humbled and blessed I am to have these moments!

It’s been a month…one whole month since we’ve been here in London. The city (even though I haven’t seen much of it) grows on me more every day! The people (at least the ones I’m blessed to I work with and run into) have been sweet, lovely and very helpful.  My little family has settled in for the most part, and in two weeks, my big work family moves into the theater – – a place I’ll call that my second home for a few months. We’ve started running the show in its entirety, and I think we’re in a really good place.  It’s such hard work…but it’s so much fun! I just love it!
On another note…

 

I have to say thank you…THANK YOU to all of you who picked up the album during the first two weeks. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. I really wanted to do this album for YOU…so much so, we (my husband and I) funded it ourselves. We did it independently…without the umbrella of a record company, and did it just for you. There’s no huge publicity department working on it; I’m in London working on the show, and there’s only so much I can do from this side of the pond.  So, everything that happens with the record, every album that gets into someone else’s hands,  is going to be because of YOU! And I’m so grateful for those of you who have shown us your support, and sent your encouraging words. Please continue to spread the word and tell all you can. If each of you shares, tweets, emails or tells a friend (or ten J) about it, we’ll get the word out there. For those of you who haven’t picked it up yet… I hope you will. I think you’ll enjoy it. I really need your help with this one…so thank you in advance! Won’t it be fun to show the world who really has the power in the record business…THE CONSUMER – – YOU J!!!

 

Anyhow, thanks again, and I look forward to all we’ll do here. We have so much planned for you and I’m excited to share what’s going on with you all.
Until the next time….
God bless.
