I’ve always been a journal keeper but for some reason I got away from it a few years ago, which makes me sad because I’ve had so many incredible experiences. I feel almost ungrateful, so I’ve decided to commit to it again, and in a crazy way, I think I’ll be more committed if I write it here so you can hold me accountable, lol. So anyway, my goal is to get back on track with a post at least once a week, usually on a Sunday, since that seems to be the most stable day of my week.
So the posts I’ll be posting will be my actual journal. I don’t know where it will take us, but you’re welcome to read along as I share my experiences, thoughts, feelings and whatever pours out of my heart and onto the keyboard.
A little over a week ago, I went to do Hilary Weeks makeup again for a big concert to release her new CD. We had fun, as always, and cute Dani, her hairstylist was there too. I love that we’ve worked together a total of 3 times (well, 3.5 if you count the one that got rained out, lol!) but we were already full of “remember whens,” haha. To me, that’s the mark of true bonding! 🙂 hahaha
But the getting ready was only half of the treat for me that night, as the concert was amazing. Hilary is an incredible artist, and that was obvious, but she’s so cute and real and says the cutest things, and this night was no exception. She did an outstanding job and looked absolutely stunning! I took pictures with my phone, but they turned out like pink blobs, so I don’t have any good ones to share, sorry 🙁
There was another highlight to the night, they showed Hilary’s music video which we had done (that I posted about) so here is the link to the video:
I just did Hilary’s makeup in this video, but didn’t get the chance to meet the other 2 featured women. Hilary told me about them and I was so moved by their stories and really wish I could’ve met them. Maybe someday, I really believe that would be a real honor. I love that they are women whose lives have been molded by embracing the tragedies that could have so easily destroyed them…
Oh and this is SO COOL! I got a note from Hilary this week saying the CD, Every Step, made the Christian Billboard Charts!!! And it is number 6 on the Christian Charts and Number 1 on the Indie Music charts….she was writing to say thank you and you know what, after working beside Hilary even just a few times, I can say that if anyone deserves that kind of success, it’s her. She poured her heart & soul into that project and beyond that, she’s every bit the gem she appears to be and then some! I’m so excited for her! I love it when great things happen to great people, yay!
I’d better scoot and go enjoy some time with my hubby. I worked all morning on NBC’s Music and the Spoken Word, then tomorrow will come early and I’ll be on another set somewhere–still waiting for call time & info. But I’ll keep ya posted. In the mean time, go spend some time with someone you love, time flies way too fast!
