EFY = Good Times March 7, 2009

n604700144_892901_8408Anyone who has ever attended an EFY session (Especially for Youth) can attest that they’re some of the best times ever. EFY is synonymous for the cutest boys, little or no sleep and the most fun you’ve ever had… in addition to being a huge testimony booster. At EFY chivalry is alive – boys open doors for girls, carry cafeteria trays and serenade them on a regular basis. It’s amazing.

scan0005In 2004 I had a chance to be an EFY counselor in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta – and had time of my life. Several of my kids from EFY have gone on missions and gotten married in the temple. It’s incredible to see how the gospel sticks in their lives.

scan0008I always had HUGE crushes on my EFY counselors – always the older, hotter guys – and it was interesting to have the tables turn 🙂 One of the kids from EFY Calgary had a big crush on me. So cute!

Did you go to EFY? What were some of your favorite memories? Here are some of mine…

Arte Latino Festival – Park City, Utah March 27, 2008

parkcitysat-007.jpgSomething about Park City makes me feel like I’m on vacation — must be because it reminds me a lot of Whistler, a favorite vacation spot. An avid fan of Park City and flamenco, I jumped at the chance to see Bien Flamenco perform at the Kimball Art Center on March 8 for their Arte Latino Festival.
Bien Flamenco is the only live flamenco ensemble in the entire of state of Utah comprising of guitarist, Godo, Sariah (in the green), and two other dancers. Sariah does a masterful job of arranging numbers for three dancers, and their castanets work is remarkable.

My favorite photo of the night – Sariah’s Solea Solo with a fan.

We were in for a further treat since Mexican artist Joe Bravo, renown for his incredible art painted on tortillas, was in town from LA to kick off the exhibit at the Kimball Arts Center. Bravo said since tortilla was cheaper than canvas as a poor college student, this was how he expressed his art. And I thought tortillas were for eating…
