Grand Re-Opening of Dolce. Con Spirito.

A lot can happen in a year and a half...and it truly has for me.  My life has changed in so many ways and it has been a tough road with lots of road blocks and speed bumps.  I'm in a very different place now and it is time for my blog to reflect that place. 

So, I declare this the official grand re-opening of this blog.  Here is what to expect in the near future:

First of all....why Dolce. Con Spirito?  - The title of the blog is taken from musical terms. Dolce means "sweetly."  Con Spirito means "with spirit; brilliantly."  I feel this is a pretty good description of me and my life.

I love music and education, so I will be sharing my thoughts and opinions and maybe even a few stories from my experience as a band director. 

I love running...most of the time...and I enjoy working out...most of the time!  As I explore new workouts and hopefully begin training for my first marathon, I plan to share those with you, too. 

I love cupcakes.  They've become a bit of an obsession.  (Which means I really need to workout and run more...)  Any time I visit a new city or state, I am on the hunt for a cupcake shop to try out.  So, because I'm such a nice person, I'll be sharing my opinions about said cupcake shops.

And, of course, I'll be sharing some of the goings-on in my life.  Some things you might find interesting; others you'll probably want to skim over and that is perfectly fine with me.

So, welcome back to anyone who was already following me and welcome to anyone who is visiting for the first time!
