The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

My Cello Solo ~ April DOTM ~

 Today, I performed a Bach cello concerto. It was a part of the program at my schools, "Love the Arts" concert.  There were some amazing singers, musicians, and dancers. Even the drama kids performed a little play. It was a pretty long program (over 3 hours!) because of how many people there were. I think my favorite performance was my best friend Anna's ballet dance. She's beyond beyond talented! I'm not quite sure how she can stay pointed on her toes for that long! I was pretty nervous, but I think it went well. I only messed up this one part, but I don't think anyone noticed. I had to memorize every movement, so I think little mess ups are okay. I received a standing ovation and some flowers from my sisters. I think that was really sweet of them. 
My sister Kennedy made the amazing dress I'm wearing. She's so talented! It flows so perfectly when I'm playing. Plus it sparkles under the lights! I received some many compliments on the dress. I can't see me wearing this from anything besides solo concerts (and maybe prom? I'm not going to that though.), but I felt like a princess. It is great to feel like a princess!

These pictures were taken before I started play. I think they look very elegant and classy! I'm so glad that I now have photos of me and my cello. I feel very professional!

This one was taken when I was playing. Not quite sure what I'm looking at, but I hope I was sounding good at this point! Thank you for reading my little story about my concert. See you next time on DNA!



  1. I like the instrument ! Island your dress is AMAZINGLY flowy!

  2. That is really cool, Isla! I love Bach! I play piano, and Bach is my favorite! I actually read a biography on him. :D

  3. Great post! That dress is really pretty. :)
