I love this weather..

Well here I am on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon blogging.

Today is a gorgeous day! The atmosphere of people I was with this morning, how well I did in dance after having mono and laying low and the relaxation of music is a lovely experience to have on a most delightful day like today! When it's a nice day out, its hard not to smile. :)

This Weekend

This weekend has made me smile so much, I cant help but have my face light up whenever I think of this weekend! Friday night, I went to Bar Louie to relax after a really busy day. Saturday, I was filled with laughter from family and friends all day long. Then, I continued the night with a performance of my dance studio! It amazes me how many kids can have so much talent! The happiness in their eyes when they got a big clap from the audience while they did something cool, was the most adorable thing I have ever seen!

The happiness of the audience and dancers filled the room with amazement and love for each other, I am definitely grateful to be in a community who shares passion with each other. After saying a genuine "Great job!", "That was ah-mazing!" "They are so talented, it was so awesome!", a few of my now called friends invited my friend, Erin and I to go get food with them and to the after party. Even though, we sadly spent 15 minutes with them at a restaurant before we headed out to get back home, (Erin and I live an hour away and we have to pass Denver on a Saturday night :/ Traffic sucks.) We enjoyed ourselves with their company! They made us laugh, talk and stand there awkwardly for a few seconds before looking up and laughing again.

After the shin dig was done, Erin and I decided to cruise down the highway, with non other, our favorite song.. "Niggas In Paris" on repeat. Yes. We are two white as can be girls who love to play Niggas In Paris. And Yes, we do know all of the lyrics. :) Its quite hilarious trying to focus on the road while your best friend is eating soup and rapping Niggas In Paris. Everyone should see this happen sometime in their life!

 I also had the opportunity to be busy this morning with some adorable little kids and I had a splendid time being sleep deprived while handling obnoxious questions and comments from 5-9 year olds. (It actually helps be a little crazy with them!)

As the time goes tonight, I say "Goodnight World" while I am listening to my favorite music with a nice hot cup of tea and the lovely memories of this weekend. Have a quiet, relaxing and marvelous sleep. I know, I will be having a sparkle in my eye and big smile on my face when I fall asleep.

Keep the spark of happiness,

(Erin on the left, Me (Maria) on the right)

Inspiration and Motivation.

Do you know what makes me smile? People. Music. And Dance.

They all inspire me so much, I get so motivational, its unreal! I just made 3 emails to people at midnight because I am so motivated for things to get done in my life.

Im so overwhelmed with joy, I want to cry! I have music on that makes me happy, I am in the presence and talked to people who make me happy and dance in general just makes me happy. I dont know what in the world has gotten into me but, I can just tell this week is going to be fabulous.

Inspiration and Motivation.. What beautiful words.  --- A song that has never failed of putting a smile on my face!

The Laugh.

Laughing. My favorite thing to do. Its not a hobby in my life, its a job. And I make sure I go to work everyday. :)

There is a simple love between two people who can genuinely laugh together. Even if they have never met before in their life and they are recently meeting, a piece of someone's heart goes to that person. Or if they have known them for forever and a day, there is a reason why they keep going back. For other reasons, yes but laughter is a big part of relationships. Therefore, there must be some laughing going on. 

My laugh, my real laugh, is what I am essentially known for by others who know me pretty well. I say pretty well because to get me to laugh my full on "Maria" laugh, it takes some work to break down these walls.It's me, being the most vulnerable.. EVER. But, if you have me laughing within an hour of meeting you, You have me. 

This laugh of mine consists of a variety. It all depends on how fast I am gaining intensity. It will first start with a silent giggle, then an outburst and a giggle, I will continue with silence and on the ground. I then, collect myself and cover my face until I BURST with an explosion of laughter. 

And that my friends, is when it alllll comes out. Its basically the time where I walk around with my mind blown  from what just made me laugh so hard. 

Once you have heard that, you are now humiliated, overly concerned of my mental state at that point and has officially seen the real Maria. Its a very enjoyable event, so Ive heard. Also, its infectious. So, prepare yourself. Not only will you be humiliated, overly concerned of my mental state and seen me at my most vulnerable point, you will indeed start giggling for no apparent reason. 

The biggest part of this laugh that is so special,  is it comes out of no where. Someone can laugh and I start laughing. I normally laugh at the oddest things. Its the details I laugh at. I dont laugh at the joke, I laugh at the inflection of the voice saying it. I laugh at how the persons nostrils flare when smiling. The way his tie is. Its the details that get me going. Or, I will notice a person across the room and something about them is funny. SO, I start laughing. 

Lets just say.. The Laugh. Is a character on its own. And I love every bit of it. :)
