For me, a moment is an understatement.....
This whole year I have been very aware of what I've been thankful for all along the way.
And there is A LOT that I should be thankful for!
1) I am in love with an amazing girl! I am so grateful for all the memories we've created this summer, and I'm so honored to have her love and affection!
2) I have the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing people who have turned into great friends. In fact it's been exactly a year now that I've officially worked with The Do LaB!
3) My friends and creative community... wow! I know some extremely talented and kind people, that I am very proud to call my friends!
4) Having the gift to be able to make music and be creative! It's up to me.... I was born with the passion for it.... now I just have to make it a bigger part of my life!
5) And yes I am thankful for the fact that Los Angeles has one of the best art/music scenes on earth! Including this weekend:
