I am 32 and learning to take care of me all over again. I share my life with my wonderful 6 year old daughter Natasha. We live in the Pacific Northwest, whenever the weather permits we are outside enjoying all the WA State has to offer.
Okay so I need some help. I am putting together a brochure of my items to leave at shops around town. I am down to the nitty gritty before I send out for print. Who knew it would be so hard for me to pick a picture of myself to put on the back of the brochure. I have more choices then I thought I would, that prolly doesn't help either.
I have put the pictures on flickr, just because it is easier to navigate through the pictures.
Natasha has been taking dance lessons at Debbie's Dance Studio, since last summer. Natasha had her first dance recital on Sunday. They danced to Beach Baby by the Bay City Rollers. It was held at the Washington Performing Arts Center. If you are going to do it, do it big. The recital was 3 hours long and showcased all of the dancers from the studio, travel and competion troupe in tow.
She had many fans come to cheer her on, Nonee Gigi, Nonee Willy, Papa K, Dad, Alex and myself. Though I think it was decided that maybe from here on out, it will be my mom and myself. We didn't mind the 3 hours, but for some it was a bit long.
She also participated in the finale, where Debbie the owner of the studio danced as well.
We got a special treat when Nate Soanka, danced at the show. He is a past dancer from Debbie's who has went on to do many great things. Nate was in Las Vegas performing in the I love Dance Nationals as a member of the International Sweetheart/Heartthrob Troop when his mother sent a video of him to Norwegian Cruise Lines. He was hired on the spot! (Don’t you just HATE that, girls!) He left for cast rehearsal in North Carolina two weeks after turning 18 and began his dance career aboard The Norwegian Sea, cruising first from Boston to Bermuda And then on to Mexico. That first contract took him to St. Thomas, Aruba, Cancun, Cozumel, Belize and Honduras. Nate then accepted a second contract onboard The Norwegian Spirit, After a brief visit home this past spring 2004, Nate accepted a second contract onboard The Norwegian Spirit, NCL’s newest ship. After rehearsing onboard during the ship’s native voyage from Hong Kong, Nate cruised from Seattle to Alaska! He then did a 6 month contract onboard RCCL's Radiance of the Seas where he studied and became adept at the art of "silks." Nate recently finished touring for the Broadway show Hairspray!
Natasha LOVED being on stage. I asked her how much fun she had and she said, "A hundred million-times the fun!" I asked her if she was going to it again next year and she said, "Yep, I am going to do it every year!"
