Berry Pink Smoothie


I love smoothies so very much!!  I have one every morning before I dance!!  And this smoothie is the perfect little sweet treat to get your morning started!  It adds a little punch to your day!!  This smoothie makes me think of the famous pink milkshake dump over Kenickie from Greese.  Rizzo would not dump my pink smoothie!!

Baby Spring Salad


You may know or may not know, I love salads very much!!  And since the springtime season (my favorite season) has started, I would like to share with you one of my all-time favorite salads!  During the springtime mini strawberries  and snap peas are the best at least in Colorado!! Snap peas add a great crunch and a little extra sweetness to this salad, that is why I like them!!  Strawberries add color and sweetness too!! I love to have this salad before I dance because it has a lot of color in it which makes it perfect for spring!!  And is not to filling which makes it nice to have right before dancing!  Small but mighty!!

It is simple but sweet!!




  • Organic baby spring mix 2 cups(I like to get the box by simple truth, they sell all kinds of mixed salads only it is all fresh and in a giant box!! Perfect for those who eat lots of salad!!)¬† They always have great deals on it too, you cant miss it!!:)
  • a handful of fresh mint
  • two perfect pinches of fresh thyme
  • about 12 large strawberries sliced however you please
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped (or if your like me, throw in a little more because ya like things nutty:)!!)
  • 1/4 purple onion finely diced

Strawberry Balsamic Dressing

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove
  • two tablespoons local honey
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a pinch of ground white pepper
  • a little less than half a cup of extra virgin olive oil


  • Toss together and enjoy!!

Beautiful, colorful, and loads of health!!

I had the most amazing day and I had the blessing to see a Christian ballet company perform called, Ballet 5:8!!  it was truly inspiring with beautiful dancers, and a beautiful message!! a day filled with laughter, family, Jesus, ballet, and locking myself out of my car; bahaha funny story!! I could not ask for a more blessed birthday!! best birthday wishes from Jesus!!




Forever on the Throne!! ūüôā

I used to be really scared of what people would think of me and I was a very shy person and still am a little bit,¬†but I used to try to be perfect for other people and most of all try to be perfect for God.¬† I used to think that this is what makes a “godly” whole human.¬† Until God really lifted a weight off my shoulders.¬† And that weight was myself.¬† I now let myself be much more open and engage in what life throws my way, knowing that just being me and wearing my crown that my Savior Jesus Christ placed on my head is enough.

Do not let your peers compare you to other people’s successful lives and make you think that you too have to do exactly what they are doing just to be happy.¬† Don’t think, “oh hey, if they are happy and successful because they chose that path, then I should do the same.”¬† No!! Their success story is not the same as yours.

I am happy for the people when they reach their lifetime goal or when they achieve something they have been working on their whole life because that is what God planned for them.¬† That is their story.¬† And I know that all I need and ever want to do is dance on the path the God has for me!!¬† God will put you in your happiest place.¬† Keep doing you and keep dreaming!! ūüôā Laugh, run, skip, jump, and free fall into what you know best!!¬† If it brings you joy then in the most efficient and healthy way, that is all you need.¬† You don’t need perfection or fall into someone else’s footsteps to be happy.¬† I want to be a ballerina that inspires others to do what they love.¬† Just take in Jesus, family, good health and all the¬†laughter and smiles you can get!¬† To me life is all about experience and I want to take it all in, as much as I can.¬† I love going on a hike with my daddy and¬†taking in the crisp Colorado air that God breaths too.¬† I love laughing non-stop with my mommy and playing cards with family.¬† Even the smallest things in life make you who you are!

fullsizerender                                         God is Forever РLive РBreath Рand dance!!

I¬† live a much more free life, knowing that I am filling it¬†with¬†strength and lots of dancing and this makes me happy.¬† I get to run around in pointe shoes all day and who wouldn’t want to do that!!¬† Sure it is hard at times and I have put myself through pain at times, danced when I was sick, and have had a surgery on my left ankle but nothing scares me knowing that I have God on my side.¬† I mean, what else have we got to loose after all; God gifted us with the best reward in the end: freedom and eternity in His kingdom forever.¬†¬†And¬†hearing that makes me scared of nothing!!:)¬† That is magic right there and that is all I need!!¬† Knowing that I can run, leap, and soar without falling and that I am forever in His arms is the most fearless feeling ever….and I want to be fearless!! How could anyone be scared if you have that feeling!!

Forever is a feeling and forever is God!! ūüôā¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† https://youtu.be/huFra1mnIVE

Check out this video by one of my favorite artists Kari Jobe.¬† She is a beautiful singer/songwriter and God really gifted her with beautiful soul!¬†¬†Her video of¬† ‘Forever’ has a perfect message about how God is forever close to you in your own individual needs and how He forever reigns!!¬† Check the link out above!!:)


Voila!! There you go!!…and that is what makes God happy: You just beautiful, You:)!!¬† Hear His voice, “always remember, my child and do not forget who I created you to be!!:) Hope you enjoyed!! Lots of love!!:):)
