No reservations

Without making any reservations on Saturday night, my first choice for dinning was completely booked. We wound up in a super cozy little spot that had such a unique style, it looked quite promising.

“You don’t have any reservations?” Asked the totally charming Hipster at the front … thinking we would get politely refused once again, I was ready to move to…plan C. “I’ll see if we have space in the speakeasy” . I felt a sudden burst of anticipation. We followed him downstairs to what seemed to be a well stocked bookshelf that turned out to be a hidden door. My anticipation only grew… I had never seen such a cool space.

It was probably one of the most interesting nights I had a long time. In this little candle lit, wooden cave with an abundance of super original music, I could not stop thinking how lucky I was the night’s events led me to this path

I’ve come to realize that so much of where I am now is nowhere near where I ever expected to be. Many situations that surfaced have created detours that led me to very interesting places. I now see all these detours with a positive light instead of fear.

And a quick note to +John Getchel I actually DID take this photo with my phone, after playing around with it & finding that it had a fully manual mode :)

When I saw +Google+'s post about sharing the one thing that we can’t live without, for me the answer was automatic… MUSIC.

I often say that I consume a lot of music but if I think about it, Music consumes me

Music is what fuels my moods, my thoughts, my creativity, my passions. I knew at a very young age that I had an obsession that was different than all my friends. My continuous curiosity about music started at about age 10.

When I hear something new that I enjoy, it is one of my life’s biggest pleasures, it has so much power over me. No doubt about it, music is one thing I could never live without.

I’m thinking of a song right now and I get goose bumps

One Thing I Can't Live Without --- Not a person :)

Name it, post it and add #CantLiveWithout

Share the LOVE
What Can't You Live Without?

Valentine’s Day is typically reserved for celebrating love and showing appreciation for your significant other. This year, beside declaring your undying love, we also want to celebrate your biggest passion - we want to know about the hobbies, places, or items that you hold dear.

What is the one thing that you wouldn’t be able to live without? Something that you cherish more than anything else - maybe it’s your daily cup of coffee, a record Collection, or your love for stand-up comedy.

Holding it all together

I have to admit, it's been a rough couple of weeks months, I have been extremely overwhelmed with work ( work that I am so lucky to love so much ) & home life is pretty busy as well.

My usual work pace is always very hectic but I am always on top of it ... except that at the moment, I'm having a hard time holding it all together, my mind is drained & I'm too tired to be creative for myself.

But I ♥ and miss you guys :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is how you art, this is how you "dad" !

+Mark Rodriguez is one of the most dedicated people you will ever meet ( or never meet, in my case lol )

what's this!? what's this!?

if you have been following along my "nightmare before christmas" roof top decorations i have been creating i say "thank you" for joining me on this journey and for all the wonderful comments and words of encouragement

this build was ultimately a tribute of sorts to my father who always went all out for christmas when came to decorating the house, Clark Griswold aint got nothin on him. we had a full santa sled with reindeer on the roof and of course rudolph's nose lit up, we had a full size manger in the front yard complete wisemen, an angel, hay, and assorted animals (camels even). it was a pretty large undertaking but one that i felt was always worth it as it was unique and so well done

i loved that my dad did all that and how our house always rocked at christmas time and it was something i wanted to give to my family as well. so building this piece is just the first step in what will be an ever evolving christmas tradition and going forward each year i will create a new piece–or more, time permitting–to add to it and have something for my girls to look forward to being a part of each year

if you want to see the full progression of how this piece all came about, i have a full album of the behind the scenes shots here:
