Back to Turkey!

Published by Erica on

In case you were curious, this post is because I am so so SO tired of working on my class! I’ve spent oh…  15 hours or more(?) working on it this week. It feels like way more. And Matt is out of town until Saturday night. I don’t really know how that relates to my class, but…. there you go. I may or may not miss him a smidgen. (Mom, you’ll be happy to know that I haven’t called or texted him at all today.) Where was I going with this??? Oh yes. Pictures.

And there’s a conglomeration of pictures briefly detailing the Turkey part of my trip. I hope you enjoyed all that!! I sure did. Auditions for next year’s tour are in a few weeks and I’m looking forward to throwing my hat in the ring one more time. I love dance. And travel. And dance. And friends. And… I guess maybe I’ll look at my class prep for a few minutes.
