This Wednesday's "Eagan Market Fest" featured "Thomasina Petrus" and her jazz group. Young Leah in pink stood right in front of the stage listening to the jazz musicians until the lead singer invited her up on stage. Leah sang, "Twinkle, twinkle little star" to a jazzed up accompaniment! She stole the show!
My three little singers and I listened to the jazz and then bought some fresh produce and a $5 bouquet of beautiful flowers for "Mommy" before driving home.
I was bit by a foreign travel bug after my sophomore year in high school. I haven't found a cure for it, nor do I plan to. I visited India for 5 weeks in early 2009 and Europe in July 2009. My family and I spent 1 month in Sweden, Norway and Denmark in July 2010. In January 2012, I went to the foothills of the Himalayan mountains and a wedding in Jaipur, India. Then in May 2012, I returned to Japan and Bangkok, Thailand. My family and I spent 3 weeks in Paris, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany in August 2012.
