I just thought I’d hit you guys with a little update on where the heck I am and what the heck I’m doing these days! I’ve been hanging out in Modesto (my hometown), spending time with family and helping my mom recover from her recent hip replacement. Do you guys have any experience with a joint replacement? Boy, it’s tough work. It’s a rehab process that’s grueling, but my mom is meeting it head-on and being such a trooper. Doesn’t make it any easier, but the promise of a better quality of life after it heals is so encouraging. So I’m playing nurse/chef/maid and helping out around my parents’ house.
In more jazzy news, I’m performing in a production of Cabaret with Modesto Performing Arts! It’s pretty incredible to come back to my hometown after being away in NYC and now LA, and perform with the theatre company where I started. I’ll be playing Sally Bowles (the Liza Minnelli role, for y’all who know), and I’m so stoked to be sinking my teeth into that brilliant and devastating role. And the icing on the cake is that Mr. Lovely is playing Cliff — Sally’s love interest. Oh, how I love to be on stage with that fella.
So long story short, it’s been a busy summer so far. That’s kind of the understatement of the year. But I love it this way and I’m loving what I’m doing. And I also am so grateful that I can be blogging while I do it all. I’ll be continuing to share info and photos with you guys, so be sure to follow my Instagram and come back for updates! xoxo
