Directing!

For those of you who don’t already know this, I happen to be married to an extremely talented musician who, on occasion, allows me to collaborate with him and direct his music videos. A year and a half ago I had the extreme pleasure of directing my first video of his, It’s Your Move, and kind of had the time of my life. Since then, whenever he has a new song to promote or an upcoming album to release I pitch him my video ideas for the single and hope he goes for it! It is so incredibly fun for me to work as a story teller in this new and exciting way. To step behind the camera and literally call the shots for a change. I’ve been acting since I was 11 years old and have found directing these short, three minute movies to be a wonderfully refreshing change of pace. I love to give Josh a hard time and joke that I’m the only one who will do these videos for free, but really he’s the one doing me a great favor and I could not be more grateful.Continue Reading

The Great Escape: My 2 Day Getaway To Jackson Hole WY

Jackson Hole WY
As I write this I am sitting in a pretty little brunch spot called Persephone in downtown Jackson Hole WY…by myself…all alone…so so alone…and it’s amazing! I mean I’m not totally alone, I’m surrounded by all the other patrons. There are quite a few of them, this being a busy September weekend in Jackson. Yet despite the throngs of humanity that surround me, I am alone. Alone meaning, no husband, no kids, no companion of any kind. Just me, my chai latte and my brioche. I can’t even remember the last time I ventured into the world on my own. I haven’t sat in a cafe by myself since…I truly can’t even remember. I’m not gonna lie, it was a little unnerving at first. I was a bit hesitant to head out the door, but now that I’m here well…I feel a perfect and quiet contentment. I am free to do whatever I please in this moment. I could just sit here and stare out the window for awhile. I can write this post with total absorption for as long as the place stays open. I could eat two more of these amazing brioches and drink six more chai lattes. I have no dishes screaming at me to be washed, no children interrupting me every two seconds, no dogs to feed, no house to tidy. I am footloose and fancy free for this one afternoon in Jackson and it is just what my body, mind and soul needed. A chance to sit and breath. To indulge my own needs and desires and creativity in a beautiful place just far enough away from all the demands of my day to day life.Continue Reading
