A little bit of a late post, but I'm posting because I can...
Yesterday, this lovely gal turned 21 (what?! Already??😱)! Happy birthday to you, my fellow music partner-in-crime, sister in song and one of my dearest friends, @jayastory ! ☺️💕✨🎁🎉🎶🎭🎈 From Douglas College (yes, that orientation day when we found out we were both music students back in 2015) to the Vancouver Academy of Music, from music hallway talks to practice room jams, hanging out at the New West Quay, talks about life whenever we can, singing that notorious Mozart canon walking on our way to school (mi mi fa re), thank you for all the adventures and memories we've had so far from then to now. I might be that lil' crazy nugget of a friend week after week, but thank you anyway for putting up with my craziness, but most of all, for being there for me when I need it most and for accepting me for who I am no matter how crazy I get. You are truly an amazing, hardworking musician, leader and composer, but most of all, a wonderful friend and inspiring human being. Yes girl, you truly are. You've come so far, both musically and non-musically and honestly, I'm so proud of you and all that you do. I don't know what I'd do if you and Kam didn't come to VAM with me for our third year in music studies. You will always be my partner-in-chime (I know, I know, minus 1 for me) and nothing's gonna change that. Love you lots girl!! Here's to more memories and adventures being made, both musical and non-musical on your 21st and far beyond. Happy birthday to you! 🎶🎵🎼🎻🎸🎺🎷🎹 PS: Did I forget to mention that I'm really proud of you for winning the young composer's competition at VAM? Because you totally deserve it! Congratulations!!! •

Just had a super fun time playing in our spring recital with my students. I cannot tell you how happy I am today to see everybody perform well with confidence and passion. Hard work did payoff! #letsmakemusicmoremusictogether ❤️
Kings @emmamohalloran and @shelleyplaysaxy had a blast at @newmusicgathering over the past few days! Big shout out to the #HearAllComposers panel - @annikakale @little_miss_echo @amandafeery @mikagodbole and #BrinSolomon (all incredibly talented music makers - check them out!) - for sharing their experiences and insights. And a HUGE thank you to the folks at New Music Gathering for all the great panel discussions, concerts, and chats! It was wonderful! 💜💙💛🧡💚❤️
This photo was from my first week in Boston... I’m very grateful for all that I have learned and experienced this year. I’m also happy that I have a few months off from school to work on some cool projects 😏
Happy Birthday beautiful @Cher. Thank you for all your tweets! I find them really inspiring and actually I defended you yesterday from a silly person. Anyway I don't know if you'll remember me. About 30 years ago I took a picture of you and your Chastity now Chaz in #NYC Bloomingdale's as you both were sitting exhausted on the floor after shopping. Anyway all the best for every single day and Know that you have magical twinkling #stars making your life as iconic and extraordinary as it is. Happy birthday to @Cher. Cher Sarkisian has a incredible connection with Joe Cocker who also has a birthday today. Isn't it just a coincidence that Jack who cowrote with Sonny the song #Needles &Pins also co-wrote Up Where We Belong for Joe Cocker who also has a #birthday today? #happybirthday#joecocker#cher#taurus#wishingonastar#twinklingstars#astronomy#vedicastrology#13thsignastrology#skystrology#theskydontlie
