OH EM GEE! I started a blog...

I love a lot of things.  Too many things, I think sometimes!  But there's no changing it.

I want to do it all.

I love to cook.  So I think about going to Culinary School.  Cue scene: Me, in some fancy Italian cooking school (prada heels and all - I don't own pradas.), whipping up fantastic dishes a la Giada, and promptly getting offered my own show called "Kooking with Kate" or something equally cheesy...ooh, cheese.  Add to scene: 20 pounds because of all the cheese.

I love wine.  Oh, sister, do I LOVE wine.  So, "why not?", I ask myself.  "Self," I say, "why not pick up and move on out to Napa?  Go ahead, go back to viticulture school!  Go ahead, become a sommelier of that amazing little bistro in St. Helena".  Cue scene: Me, purple teeth but blissfully happy lying on my back in between two vines, staring at the perfect Napa sky, and picking animals out of cloud formations.  (I mean, that sounds amazing.)

I love Michaels.  That's right.  The craft store.  I can't help it! My sisters, Kara and Kacey, claim even the thought of Michaels makes them break out in a cold sweat.  It makes me break out into a happy dance.  Since I have no one to go to Michaels with, I simply go by myself.  And promptly leave with waaaaaaaaay too many projects!  Cue scene: Me, ten bags of crafty things - candle making, oil painting, flower arranging, beading, scrapbooking!, drawing!, head spinning off! Add to scene: enter Husband, "Honey, why do we have a credit card bill for $xxxxx to Michaels?" Me, "Hmmm? Did you say something? Going to walk the dog! kiss kiss!"

I want to be a Wedding Planner.  I want to be an Event Planner!  A Decorator.  A Painter.  I want to speak Italian.  I want to travel the world!  Heck!
I might as well become an Astronaut.

Most of all, however, I love Music.  So Music has become "what I do."  Cue Scene: stage, lights, guitars, Kacey, songs, writing, friends, laughter, tears, sweat, failure, success, airplanes, albums, singles, make up, blue carpets, orange carpets, high heels, radio, videos, melody, harmony....

Add to scene: My Life.  This is everything that I love to dream up and try to turn into my Life.

I have more dreams than I can count.  And I believe in trying to make every single one of those dreams come true!  It's what I call a "Dream To Life".  Big dreams, small dreams, and all the ones in between....each is valid, and each deserves it's chance to shine. 

So come dream with me...

Let's turn our Dreams into Life!
