The Worn Identity: Greek Salad With a Side of Jazz!

Destination: Dinner & A Show

This weekend my Mom performed at a local Restaurant and Bar in Encino. Rob and I drove out to support her and were treated to a night of good music and yummy Mediterranean food. (I am a sucker for Greek salads and Shrimp Kabobs). My mom is a jazz singer and performs monthly at different venues. I am really proud of her. She has always loved to sing, but in recent years she has really begun pursuing her dream. I love the fact that she has never let her dream die, and after raising my brother and myself, and retiring from a tiring job, she now has the time and energy to further feed her passion.

Are there any dreams in your life that are dying to be fed?

Joshua 24:15 Wood Slat Sign by The Simple Standard

I love the rustic slats used as the basis for this bold scripture. I also love that it uses all lowercase letters. For some reason that is always appealing to me. Perhaps it appeals to that rebellious side of me that enjoys breaking the rules of the English language by creating my own words. Nevertheless, I must have this for my kitchen!
