Hello Fellow Bloggers and Followers :)
So, the last time I graced this blog with my presence, I discussed my excitement to have been granted an audition with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and updated everyone on what I was up to...
I am back again to give a bit of an update, and to say HELLO to everyone :)
So, Chicago was GREAT!!!! I had a great time with my friend, Miguel, and feel like I really did ROCK my audition. Honestly, I don't think I've ever had such a perfect audition ever. With that said, it'll still be a miracle if I get into an "A" company like Chicago Lyric with relative no experience with other Young Artist Programs, etc... but still, I went... I gave it my shot, and I feel REALLY good about how I did :) In the end, I feel that that's what matters. If I don't get a call-back for September, I know for a fact that I can't say that I did not make it in because I totally messed up, or anything of the sort... I can truly say that if I don't even get a call-back, it's cause I just wasn't what they were looking for at this present moment. No harm, no foul. :)
So, on another note, I had another Wedding to go to on Friday, the 17th. My Mother's cousin's 2nd Marriage. Everything turned out REALLY nicely :) She had both the Ceremony and the Reception at Saphire Ballrooms in Hialeah, with each event taking place in a different Hall... The Decor was by "Fairytale Designs" and looked AMAZING! I honestly didn't remember that I was in a Hialeah Banquet Hall!!! When the Bride and Groom made their grand entrance... it was nothing less than GRAND!! On a Musical cue, each and every centerpiece shot up with a wonderful display of Pyrotechnics ;) It was great.
And of course... this upcoming friday, the 24th, marks our 6 Months of Marriage :) All I can say is that time has truly FLOWN!!!!!! I can hardly believe it has been half of a year already... before we know it, we will be eating the top of our cake, toasting champagne, and looking back on a WONDERFUL first year :)
With all these Weddings, Auditions and Babies popping up all over (My Nephew, Carlos Marcello Ruiz born June 29th, and Adrian Mora coming in September), it's a really exciting time :)
Hope everyone is doing well... Off I go to catch up on my reading (of all the blogs I follow, of course).
