saraheward That time Karla showed up to a sewing playdate with two black kittens in tow! Be still my heart! ♡ (Look @stephieward17, they're Ella and Fitz's half sisters!) These pretty ladies are still on the market if anyone's house would be made a home by their company. 1w

saraheward I always judge books by their covers. What else do we have to go off of? The purpose of a book cover is to get you to pick up the book and then it's up to the book flap to lure you in. And then once you're intrigued, it's the author's turn to deliver.
Aren't people like that, too? The purpose of your personal appearance, or personal image, is to tell a story that will draw people in. We all know that our appearance is constantly communicating 24/7 and that people make their minds up about us based on those first impressions alone. How important is it that we design a personal image that communicates the messages we want to convey. People judge books by their covers. And people judge people the same way. Dress mindfully, friends. Use your image to your advantage!

saraheward It was so exhilarating to perform flamenco again with this remarkable group of musicians and dancers recently with Ben on guitar and Mirta on cante. Another flamenco juerga is just around the corner on Thursday, April 23 @ 7-9pm at Q Cafe in Seattle. You can look forward to live flamenco guitar, authentic cante (singing), group dance numbers, solo performances, and improvised por fiesta numbers, too. A big thank you to @seangumm for this lovely capture! 2w

saraheward My cat Max has his own @FitBit and he might even take more steps than you! We jimmy rigged two bands into a collar for him, created an account, measured his step length and let him have at it! Considering he rarely leaves the house, he has an impressive daily step count! (Which doesn't even count the times he wriggles the collar off.) Here's to pet fitness! ♡☆ 3w

  •   sheryneroxanne Where is the festival? 1mon
  •   saraheward @sheryneroxanne Albuquerque New Mexico. It's a phenomenal gathering every year! If you watch there are local flamenco festivals in most major cities (Seattle sadly not being one of them) that bring in major names like this. I did see a terrific flamenco show at Benaroya last November so shows do come through our town. 1mon
  •   kristineso @saraheward see you in abq! So excited!!! 3w
  •   saraheward Likewise @kristineso! It's going to be a great festival! 3w
  •   saraheward @kristineso Do you guys have your housing lined up yet? Let me know if you need a roommate, I'm on the lookout right now. , there are some great options in the area that can house several people and it would really enhance the experience! 3w

saraheward Flamenco is this thing you didn't know you never had in your life, until it's there. And then you just want more.
Join us for a flamenco fix next Thursday at Q Cafe in Seattle at 7pm where I'll be dancing along with other lovely flamencas! $5 donation.
In other news, so loving the happy marriage of my flamenco and lettering. ♡ More fun results from the #mollyjacquesworkshop!
