The past week has been filled with lots of fun things. I planned a trip to Ottawa for May. Met up with friends I hadn’t seen in awhile. And successfully built furniture from IKEA. Here are some photos I’ve taken along the way.
I have been dying to see The Book of Mormon since I first heard about it in 2011. Many of my friends have seen it and keep telling me to buy tickets. Adam and I missed our chance to see it last fall but we are prepared this time around. Our tickets are for next year! May 2017 hurry up and get here! Now, if only Hamilton would go on tour and come to Phoenix. I would be so happy!
Last Saturday, we went to the salsa festival at Steele Indian School Park. The best park about having a huge city park across the street from us is we can walk to the events hosted there! There were so many people sharing their salsas; restaurants, companies, regular people, and even a group of firefighters. There was a live band and delicious margaritas. For me the highlight of the festival was seeing two 12 week old goldendoodles. They were adorable!
I've performed in so many concerts I can't keep count! This photo is from my latest concert this past Monday with the Phoenix Community College band. One of my favorite things about band is the community. After every concert we go across the street and get burgers and beer with lots of laughter and sharing. This week I met a trumpet player who moved to Phoenix as a young lawyer back in the 60s with the V.I.S.T.A. program. He worked with migrant farmers and through this he became a part of Cesar Chavez's legal team. I'm not sure why but band always attract the most interesting and diverse group of people. 🎶🎼🎵#clarinet #band #Phoenix | 📷: @ajgarnica
And last but not least, I had another band concert this week and I managed to get a photo. We were prepared and played the music very well. We ended with a medley of songs from Grease! I always have a ton of fun at our concerts. It’s a fantastic group of people and I feel lucky I found them so soon after moving to Phoenix.
Adam’s mom is coming to town today and I’m looking forward to showing her around Phoenix. The weather is perfect and the wildflowers are in bloom! What are you up to this weekend?
