Yesterday was a bit of a crazy day that I was going to leave to be a memory, but I wanted to journal about it. I think I overbooked my day my mistake and thought it was going to be an epic fail kind of day. It went ok lol. In the morning we met with some old and dear friends that we do life with. Ones that know us inside and out, still love us, encourage us, remind us of our faith and our dreams, and keep us going over great conversation. One helped us with our finances and housing, www.geoffleemortgage.com and the other two made us the best tuna melts I’ve ever eaten 🙂 Thanks M&G!
Next was my phone call to the band “Love and the Outcome“. I’ve gotten to watch these two incredible people – Chris and Jodi – reach their dreams and make new ones as they release their first major label record to huge acclaim in North America. Their music and their story is beautiful, and I love that I get to write for an inspiring magazine The Light, and I sometimes get to feature great musicians who are also friends.
Then I went to meet my 7 new interns who work with me for the year. I felt my time was a little rushed with them as I had to get to the studio, but still a great introduction meeting for what we want to get done this year.
On to the recording studio. Loving collaborating with Jonathan Simkin and Colin Janz. Jonathan runs 604 records and is kind of an industry hero to me, and the heart and talent behind producer Colin Janz just blows me away. Blessed to have this opportunity. Going to radio again soon and I’m very excited about it.
Then attended Eco-Fashion week with some of my new friends and film crew. Involved in a stellar new project that is coming soon!
Tea – at Neverland Tea salon. Officially my new favourite tea place. We got to meet the owners, and I was able to be a part of an amazing community of parent bloggers. Meeting new friends in a new city -I’m finding- is quite difficult. I’m finding that I’m more of an introvert than I thought, and so I have to purpose myself to get out!! Although blogging isn’t my “business” I love learning about it, and connecting with those that inspire me through their blogs. Meet ups are so great, and tonight it was such a treat to be with such good people. One of my faves is Ricky Shetty www.daddyblogger.ca who is doing different and having a lot of fun while doing it. AND, the tea was amazing, as well as my BC Milk mug I won 🙂 I like winning things. Thank you to the Parent Blogger Vancouver community and Neverland Tea Salon for a great time. Love that we got #PBUYVR trending!
To finish, back to the studio. I don’t think I’ve recorded a song as fast as I did. I’m amazed at how it all happened and came together but I’ve had the best time, and a great end to the night. It has been such a treat to work with Colin again ( we recorded lead vocals on a pretty great project with Brian Doerksen a few years ago called Prodigal God ). Colin is also an incredible singer whom one day promises to make me home made soup 🙂
No pictures. I didn’t take any. I was present instead today. Plus I need a iphone so I can have instagram lol.
Sometimes I get in days where it feels like I’m journeying my path alone. Might seem weird to you, but in all the days of challenge, and wondering, a day like today reminds me of the amazing community I have. It just looks different to what may seem normal. And I am blessed.
