Sunday July 21,  The Holy Ghost festival, 2019
Growing up Catholic and the grandchild of Portuguese immigrants, this third Sunday In July was always a very special time for us. The Holy Ghost Festa proclaims the faith of the Portuguese and their devotion to the Holy Ghost.  Several elements of the festival stem directly from the life of Queen Isabel, and this story is my favorite. There was a famine in Portugal, and Queen Isabel began to take food from her table to feed the desperate poor. Her husband, King Dinis, admonished her to stop doing so, but of course, her tender heart couldn’t bear to see her people suffering, and she continued to feed them as she could. One time he saw her with something under her cloak and suspected it was bread and thus, evidence of her disobeying him. Isabel said a quick prayer and when she opened her cloak, it was roses which tumbled out instead of bread. The queen in todays Festa wears an apron with roses pinned to it to symbolize that miracle . Leading the parade is the festival crown and scepter, topped by the silver dove. My great grandmother brought the festival crown back from Portugal to begin the festival in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where the parade begins at my mothers home and processes to my church, where mass is attended and the festival queen is crowned. When I was 16 I was crowned queen (swipe to see photo!!) and today, Barbie wears a replica costume made by me to emulate that sweet day. The day ends with glorious Portuguese food, music and dancing and an auction where I  have donated- what else?- the Princess of Portugal doll! It’s a once a year day to be treasured. Happy Festa Sunday, friends!!

Saturday July 20, That's one small step for man, .......”
Growing up in a small town meant simple summers at the beach during the day, and stargazing at night. I remember nights on our deck watching the stars meander across the sky, and dreaming of flying myself some day. Fifty years ago today, brave men took that step into history as Neil Armstrong spoke his iconic  words “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. If you’re reading this on a smartphone or tablet, you’re holding far more technology in your hand  than what sent the capsule into orbit and our country into history. Imagine! Altho there has not been a female to step foot on that distant moon, Barbie has been an astronaut for many years, and continues to teach the next generation to dream big, because she knows you can be anything! Take a look at the moon tonight dolls, and let your dreams soar, knowing that the woman has already been born that will take that brave step on the moon and who knows- perhaps Mars, too! Happy moon landing anniversary, friends!

Friday July 19, the power of a pooch! 
I know I’ve mentioned here how stressful the month of July is for me- while others dream of vacation and lazy days on the beach, my work ramps up to a frenzy. My concerts are outside and we are entering a heat wave, making it more physically challenging for me. So last night, after a day filled with little annoyances and petty emails,  I decided to walk our dog in the cool twilight, expecting a short walk then home-but a neighbor I haven’t seen in ages saw me and pulled over to catch up, which was just what I needed! My sweet, smiling dog started the conversation but then as she saw I was ok taking over () she laid right down in the grass and let us have a nice chat. I was so much better when I arrived home- fresh air, light conversation and dog love smoothed over the irritations of a day best put to rest. I don’t know how they do it, our fur babies, but I’m so grateful for their sweet, kind, affectionate natures and the way they can turn a day around, aren’t you? Happy Friday to you, dear dolls- stay cool!

Thursday July 18, the simple things in life are so sweet!
Every Wednesday in July I produce family concerts we call Wacky Wednesday events, and they are so special! Children from infant to school age and their families come for an hour of live music by amazing artists that keep the kids dancing and singing long after they leave the stage. A huge part of these concerts? BUBBLES! The children can’t get enough of them so this year I stepped up my game and purchased two bubble blowers, which keep the children enthralled- and why not? Bubbles are magical, full of color and light, and I simply can’t look at them without laughing! It makes my heart sing to see today’s children enjoying such simple pleasures, because I know that for many of them, their life is full- of activities, of electronics, of complications that are beyond simple. I’m proud that, for an hour a week, they can dance, sing, and chase those magic bubbles while learning to love live music and simply be children. If it’s been too long since you chased bubbles, now is the time- they are clearanced  in every store, so no excuses- buy yourself some, get outside and laugh! Happy bubble Thursday, dolls! 
Special thanks to my bubble machine helper, my very own mom, @maryann.macleod !

Wednesday July 17, sometimes, only wine and ice cream will do!! Yesterday was a DAY my friends, and I just can’t lie. I found myself driving back to my office at 7:30pm looking for a check that wasn’t there, struggling with the printer- oh boy, I was in a foul mood!! But when we got home my husband went straight to the freezer and pulled out the ice cream,  I poured myself a glass of wine, and I thought about what actually happened. Yes, today was hard, and yes, it was not my fault but if I reframed it, it was actually a glorious day. Driving my son to camp at 7am isn’t easy but it’s time alone together and we talk a lot- that’s a win. I sang at a birthday party of an 85 year old man who loves opera and while my Bluetooth speaker wouldn’t sync it didn’t matter, he was so excited to hear Carmen in person wether I had that back track or sang alone.The check was missing and I did go back to the office, but my husband drove me and so it was a mini date that ended with wine and ice cream. None of these irritating moments truly matter if I handle them with kindness instead of drama, music instead of silence, and the company of my family instead of fuming about how I’ve been wronged. I know today will be better! Happy reframed Wednesday to you all, dolls!!

Tuesday July 16, restored to glory! 
I find that a great way to pick myself up when I feel like I’m in a rut is to do something new, or something I haven’t done in awhile. That’s why here on Instagram, you might see me with a bunch of dolls getting the spa treatment for a week or so, then I move on, until I get that itch again. What I don’t usually do is think to restore a doll to her original self- until this beauty. With matted hair and a well loved past, I thought she might just be beyond what my skills could handle, but I’m not afraid of a good challenge, so I dug in slowly, documenting her progress as I went. Her hair is the softest, most glorious thing, and once @thadollylama told me who she was, I knew I had to go the distance and buy her beautiful mermaid garb, too. I like to think that our dolls know when we give our heart to them, and I think it’s only fair- they give us such joy, and soothe us when we need that balm. Restored to her glory, indeed, and by helping her, I gave myself a gift. Happy Tuesday to you all! .

Monday July 15, when did  the price of food go sky high?
Do you all know the story of the frog in the pot? How when he jumps in,  the water is cool, but eventually the water gets hotter and hotter and by the time he feels it, it’s too late. I felt that way today at the grocery store-we’re really watching the few pennies we have and so I was being extra careful while shopping and perhaps because I WAS paying attention, I began to notice things I hadn’t before. I’m so busy that I don’t shop every week, so I simply haven’t been aware of the price increases until now. It was a wake up call my friends- I need to pay more attention. The dollar bills are few, and I have a teenage son to feed! You know what that means? MORE MEAL PLANNING. Do you know what I hate to do? Right- meal planning. I guess I’ll need to just get over that and tackle this like I do everything else, by digging in. But just in case it’s possible, if there’s another way... like, waving a magic wand, perhaps?? Happy planning Monday, my dear dolls!!

Sunday July 14, don’t you wish you could fly??
The high school in my town has a huge parking lot just for students cars, but when I was growing up, only the privileged few had vehicles, and the rest of us got around on our bicycles. I remember that feeling of racing down a hill, feeling like I might lift off and fly!! I’d forgotten that feeling until I moved to Germany and once again, the bicycle was my main transport, along with public transportation. After each evenings performance I would bike home in the dark streets, my light a sweeping, solitary beacon. Sometimes I felt alone in the world on my bike, but in a good way because I knew at the end was my home and husband. If I could have flown, I would have! Now when I ride I remember how free I am and I treasure that feeling of almost flying because in my dreams, I’m lifting off into the sun. I hope you fly free this Sunday, dear dolls!!

Saturday July 13, have you ever noticed that the most cheerful people can be hiding the greatest pain?
It never ceases to amaze me, the strength and resilience of the human spirit. Because most of us spend the majority of our lives hiding our pain and suffering, I’ve learned to reach out when someone expresses pain- for, how brave is it to do so in a social media world where every post is perfection, and apps exist to make your face more “perfect “? Some people are so cheerful and giving all the time that it’s hard to remember that they suffer, too, and their pain can be deep. It connects us, because no one lives life without it- no one. I remember that when I feel alone, and I’ll hold your hand if you need a friend, too. Thank you to all of you who share your pain here, you are loved! Happy Saturday my dear dolls! .

Friday July 12, do you like a good mystery? 
I was fortunate to “win” a Barbie vintage lot on EBay at a down right cheap price, and was thrilled to see this beautiful dress in such lovely condition. I was excited to identify the dress by number and that’s where the mystery began! While I know that there are websites galore to help, I love flipping the pages of Sarah Eames Barbie fashion history- if you don’t know these books, I recommend them! Here’s what I found-not this exact dress, but #978 Lets Dance(1960-1962) in blue with a deep blue sash, swipe to see the photo. Same dress but wrong colors, right? I thought, maybe the sash faded from blue to purple? But it’s purple all around with no signs of fading. Ok then, back to the book. What about Swingin Easy, #955? No, same dress but in shades of green. Huh! I couldn’t find more about it but I know who to ask...YOU! You all know so much more than I do about Barbie vintage clothing, so perhaps you can solve the mystery. While this isn’t really a vintage doll, I’m so proud of her curls that I decided she needed a gorgeous dress, too. Help me solve my mystery and happy Friday, dolls!!
SWIPE to see book photos! .

Thursday July 11, life flies by so fast, I need to process! 
When I’m in the middle of this crazy performance season, I often force myself to sit still with a cup of tea and think about what happened that day, and how I might have handled it better. Today I had a beloved student have a mini meltdown- I gave  her hugs and texted her later to check in. I found out a friend has breast cancer and will begin chemo next week- I reached out and offered to drive her son to class with my boy, she was so grateful. But other things weren’t so easy to make right. I’m worried about my concerts, and that doesn’t help make them better. Im worried about making all the ends meet, and that doesn’t bring more abundance to my life. I’m worried about the way there seems to be more hate than love in the world these days, I’m just one small voice, how can I change that? Well, we can do that together- by showing more love, by not being prickly when people rub us the wrong way, by assuming the best in others. Taking time to see the good in the world is a potent reminder of our many blessings! I wish that for you this glorious Thursday, dear dolls- pour that cup, settle in, and be refreshed! .

Wednesday July 10, you want me to hang this WHERE?
Part of my job as Director of Performance is to run two concert series every summer in our amphitheater- it’s our  very own mini Tanglewood. The covered pavilion seats about 250 and the lawn, hundreds more. A couple of years ago was the series 20th anniversary and I knew I wanted to do something different- but what? Then, I had a dream. I’ve learned to pay attention to my dreams because sometimes, they prod me to do BIG things! I wanted to hang chandeliers, because I am the glitter and sparkle queen and- why not? But- they would have to be grand because the space was so large, and that could mean very expensive. I did a lot of research and came upon a website that sold large scale items for people that do events, like me. We purchased three chandeliers that are over 6 feet in length, and are lightweight plastic. My husband and a dear friend hung them that year, and every year since... and they look amazing!! When I find myself second guessing my ideas, I remind myself of these gorgeous hanging chandeliers, and how I had absolutely no doubt they would be perfect- and I trust myself. You should always listen to that small voice-always! Happy chandelier Wednesday, dolls!

Tuesday July 9, do you believe people come into your life for a reason? 
Im sure this happens to all of us at one time or another- last night I just wasn’t sure what I wanted to photograph. Sometimes the vision is really clear but other times, it takes some digging. I decided to just relax and play, and soon, Raquelle was sitting quietly with a magazine and her journal, but no clear story- until I really looked at the whole photograph! Every single detail that makes this dolls house a home, from the magazines to the cushions, candle and Kleenex box came from the hands and vision of one extraordinary person. I’m not sure why we have bonded the way we have, but I trust this artist with that which is so close to my heart - the ability to bring my story to life in the best possible way. I’ve seen it in lots of you- you can begin in a tentative way, but thru encouragement and help you hit your stride and what you are photographing and conveying becomes clear. So, yes- I do believe that people come to us when we need them most. I’m betting that each one of you has such a person here in Instagram who inspires you, who gives you a hand up, and applauds your success. Be sure to tell them you adore them, and  say a prayer of thanks because these people, that you might never hug in person- they are meant to be your friend. Happy Tuesday, dear friends! 
Love, Pillows, candle, carpet, magazines, Kleenex box, and so much more from @wolverine_land .

Monday July 8, ok, let’s get this party started! 
When our son was born, a wise friend gave me some sage advice- start as you mean to go on. Now that’s not easy when you don’t KNOW how you want to continue- but thru trial and many errors, I’ve learned to heed this advice when it comes to busy weeks. I know that if I start my day with a good breakfast and a nice walk with my dog, if I take my time on my appearance and I’m early to my destination, then I’m bound to have a much better day than if I’m rushing from the start. I’m a realist, tho- sometimes stuff happens, and boy can flexibility save a situation from disaster! This begins a week of almost daily performances for me, which means I need to be patient, kind, loving and energy full. I need to prepare so I eat well, and I need to smile!!!! My life is so beautiful and I’m very grateful, so this morning I’m grabbing my new purse, fluffing my hair and heading out to begin my week like a boss! Happy smiling Monday to you all, dolls! .

Sunday July 7, is it ok to have a favorite? 
One of the very best things about Instagram is the way it connects us....and I’m learning it’s so much more than just the photos and the hashtags! Friday night the beautiful @thadollylama had a fantastic live hour that began with her showing me the fashion pack she bought me, morphed to talk about the live action Little Mermaid casting and ended with her unboxing a gorgeous doll. Then, there’s the parties you all throw by creating new hashtags- they are a ball. Now, I  know it’s not always right to have a favorite, but my favorite grandpa on Instagram is having a BIG birthday today, and we’ve been instructed to bring our favorite dessert and to wear our dancing shoes. Grandpa just seems like a cookies and milk kind of guy, so that’s what we’re bringing him. And, because it’s not a birthday until the opera singer sings, you can check out our story to hear us belt a high note or two! So to my favorite Instagram Grandpa- long life to you, may you never grow too old to keep up with that beautiful wife of yours! Happy party Sunday, dolls!!

Saturday July 6, simple pleasures can be so sweet!
My mother in law is visiting for a few days and so we made a trip to our local DSW- do you have those? Lovely shoes, and cute purses. I’ve had my eye on a bag there, but waited and waited because I had a coupon only good for the next week. I was so sad to see the purse was gone but I knew I could find something anyway.... and then, there it was!! The cutest summer bag, the last of its kind. I felt exactly how I feel when I find a lovely doll in a second hand store- that lift of spirit, that euphoria! Now, I know that when I breathe my last it won’t be a handbag that will comfort me, but my loving family. A THING can never take the place of love- but oh, how it can make life sweet, for whenever I pick up this dear bag, I’ll be brought right back to this place and time, and I’ll smile. I hope a simple pleasure makes you smile today, my dear dolls! Happy Saturday!
