winding up....

Lately I feel spring-loaded, like there's all this energy buzzing in my hands that's cocked waaaaay back, about to explode when I let it go. I've been doing a lot of prep work for the things I've got lined up this summer, and it's required a lot of hard work and plans and serious A-Typing, but I think it's all gonna be worth it. I feel like I'm gonna throw a super fast curve ball straight through summer. And that it's gonna feel good.

First up: I changed up my look a bit and got new headshots. That's right! I dyed my hair strawberry brunette and got full bangs, then took some spiffy new headshots as the Quirky Girl. (What does "quirky" even mean, anyway? Does it mean "weird" but "not so weird that the person might stalk and kill you"? I haven't figured it out yet.) If you look up "quirky" in the dictionary, though, I bet there's a picture of Zooey Deschanel. She's the ultimate Quirky Girl.  And she's adorable.

So here are some shots you guys might like, all courtesy of the fabulous Dana Patrick in LA: 







Yay! Pictures! That might lead to acting jobs! I'm excited. I'm still in a fantastic acting class, too, but I'm taking a break in July to study dialects at a local college with this lovely lady

This summer I am also heading over to the East Coast (Lake Winnipesaukee, where my family used to own property when I was little) to meet up with all of my cousins for a week-long family reunion. It's going to be a blast to reconnect with everyone and make some great new memories. I'm pretty jazzed to meet all of my little second cousins too. 

And finally, last but maybe most hugely (is that a word? It is now), Benni and I booked our honeymoon for later this year. We're going to not one, not two, but to THREE different cities. Anyone want to guess? I'll give you a hint:



Yep! Great guesses! We're going to London, Paris, and Barcelona! And I couldn't be happier. :) Benni and I are staying in some gorgeous hotels and have lots of plans for sight-seeing (we're museum geeks) and eating at some great restaurants.  We are truly so incredibly happy.

It's shaping up to be a wonderful summer. I hope you all have a fantastic one and I'll catch you all later. Have a terrific weekend :)

Hugs,
Tracy

The headshots are awesome. I have mixed feelings about bangs. Every time I get them, I enjoy them for a while, but it is inevitable that I want to grow them out. I hate that period of when they are always in your eyes. However, I must admit the New Look suits you very well, so maybe the bangs will stick for a LONG TIME.

Your honeymoon destinations sound Fantastic. I can't wait to hear about those places. Take lots of pictures!!! Beyond happy for you:)

You look beautiful. And your vacations are well worth it.

You look totally beautiful in your new head shots. Traveling sounds like fun. You have someone you enjoy being with, you will have a great time in Europe.

This post made me smile.

Fun post. Cute new pics...love the quirky look (even if I don't know what it means *grin*). Hopefully you can land some great gigs and give Zoey a run for her money. ;)

Sounds like a super fun and eventful summer. And I'm definitely jealous of your Honeymoon plans. Sounds awesome! Europe is on my bucket list...kids are a little young right now but hopefully we'll make it in the next ~5 years.

Have a great summer. :-)
