sometimes I do what I got to do.

sometimes I do what I want to do.
sometimes when I got to do what I want to do – it’s the same damn thing.

Gina thinks that I like them because they are purple... 

I don't know - Maybe?

Guys - it was the weirdest thing.

On a Sunday, we were just sitting on the couch - flipping through the stations and we came upon the Newlywed Game. 
It was corny. But cute and quirky - So we said to ourselves.... Hum - we can do that.
So the next day (at lunch) I filled out an on-line application on the production company's web-site and sent it on.... That was THE LONGEST APPLICATION EVER.

But - the application also said to send along a DVD of us...

So I searched on-line and found a g-mail address that appeared to be associated with the game show.. I sent an e-mail inquiring about the process of submitting a DVD and not and hour or so later I got an e-mail back saying - Can you come up to NYC for an on camera interview - to day or tomorrow?

Um - what?

I thought that it was fake.

So I asked Deme about it and he said that we should go for it.
So we did - we drove up there that next night and did an on camera interview. (Ask me about the Bunny Rabbit and the Tiger)
We didn't get to exit 8 on the turnpike before we got a call back saying that we needed to be up there that Thursday for an all day taping.

So we did.

The whole thing happened so fast - It was such a rush......  Now on to St. Croix!  :)

the 'O'

...just like Alice fell through a hole and ended up in Wonderland... 
One day WE walked into a community art center and were granted creative freedom.

Ok - so it wasn't THAT easy... (not to mention if I see the Cheshire cat in one of the trees on the site I may pass out)...but the entire process has been so fluid so far I have no choice BUT to go with the flow.

The Overbrook Arts Center ( or the 'O' as we like to call it...)

"On our way to Wonderful... Is a place called Alright"

 ... That's the tag line for the center and its actually painted on the facade of the building.
Just think about it. 
(On your way to wonderful...)
We are constantly yearning. hoping. praying. for something wonderful. 
But wonderful may not be tangible - right now.
The wonderful that you envision may not even be the best thing for you - but you think about it all the time. You may even dream about it tonight. 
The wonderful that you have concocted in your head may never manifest and ultimately you should understand that God has another plan for you and it is most likely MORE wonderful than you could have ever imagined.

But what about the Now? This 'place' that I am in NOW?
I mean - it's alright, right?

..of course it is... we just need to slow down and actually remember that :)

WE are only at the beginning stages of the re-branding process for the center, but I know and I BELIEVE that this is going to manifest into something great! 

Here are a couple of the flyers WE did for the Open House Event - featuring the NEW logo and brand... 

(I think they came out Alright.)
