First Post!

Hello and welcome to my blog! 
I've been reading many people's blogs lately and have been inspired to create my own!
Ah...I love that word. Inspired. Inspire. Inspiration. 
I hope I can inspire others in any way, and I want to keep being inspired for the rest of my life whether it's through music, art, food, people, nature...

So where shall I begin... so much good stuff has happened this past week!

My husband had a CD release party for his group, Michael Mull Trio, last Thursday at the Blue Whale, (awesome Jazz Club) in Little Tokyo. He'd been working hard for his first CD since last May! The gig was a great success and we were both happy to see so many wonderful faces! 
We were glad his parents got to come down from San Luis Obispo for the event.
His CD is available through him directly and will be available very shortly for digital purchase online! I'll keep you posted.

Valentine's Day was great too, thanks to Michael who made reservations at the Elephant Bar & Restaurant. It's a sweet place worth checking out... 
And I got these lovely Threadsence shoes from him :)

Last night I was able to go hear two lovely, talented friends perform at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. It was great!!
First is the beautiful Aijia Lise. She writes her own music, and her voice is soulful and pretty at the same time. She definitely inspired me! I gotta write more songs!!
Second is America's next big star Andy Grammer. You'll hear his single "Keep Your Head Up" on the radio and he's one of the Billboard.com's "Artists to Watch in 2011" and one of "10 Artists to know in 2011" of the NY Post! How cool is that? Congrats you guys on selling out the show! I had a blast.

Other happy things from this past week include: Italian food with my good friends, buying 3 and getting 3 free Bath & Body Works Body Creams (and a $10 off coupon usage on top of that ha! What a deal!)

More happy things are ahead of us!

Stay tuned for a Michael Mull Trio CD Giveaway! (Open to international readers too!)
Until then, here's a sample of the tracks on the CD:

    Anyway I thought I'd come on here as I think it's a great way to put anyone in a good mood :-)

    You're so happy......!!!

    OK, my pointless post(other than to be the first poster) is over. But this is a great idea, we can sometimes forget everything we have to be thankful for!

  4. Ami,
    Love your idea of promoting happiness! I've been keeping a happiness journal and it really helps put things in perspective...even after a bad day. We all have lots and lots of things to be grateful for. I'll check in to your blog to see what makes you smile.
    YOU are one of my happiest thoughts :)
    Love,
    Mom

  5. Hi Mom!
    Thanks for your comment!
    Yes! You're right, it does help put things in perspective.
    And when I do have a bad day, I would still list good things and look back and say, hey, I'm not having such a bad day. Aww, YOU are too!! Feel free to click the follow button too :)
