Back in the saddle again

Good Monday to you!

Clearly, I’ve been away. In June, I got married. Leading up to the wedding, I decided to shift my focus much more to all of the end-of-planning work that needed to be done, so I sacrificed my blogging for that. But, I’ve decided that this week is the week I get back into it all.

Much has been happening here in Minnesota. We’ve still been holding our monthly meetings. I’ve been finding new clients and even new students. I’d been considering new ways to approach a couple of places in my community (though admittedly, I knew I wouldn’t get to that until July or August). I’ve decided to try to hit up a ukelele group that happens every other Monday night.

For our honeymoon, we flew down to Florida and then road-tripped along the Gulf Coast and stayed a day in New Orleans. The most striking part about New Orleans, for me, was the first half hour walking around a city square and hearing a band play on the street. Comprised of a trumpet, trombone, tuba, guitar, and bass drum, they improvised inside the song “We All Scream for Ice Cream,” to the extent that I teared up a little– they were fantastic. (Of course they were. New Orleans.) That night we spent some time on Frenchman Street and were happy to hear all kinds of amazing music spill out of each door that we passed.

I did love the South.

  1. Hi Erin, Congratulations on your wedding and marriage! If you haven’t seen the show Tremé, you might like it – set in New Orleans – lots of that street music. I think it was on HBO. I found it on Netflix.

  2. Hello Emily! Thank you; we had a great wedding and honeymoon. I haven’t seen “Tremé” yet, but we did just put it in our queue on Netflix. I’m pretty sure I’ll love it, both because of its setting and that the show is done by the same people who did “The Wire.”
