I’m celebrating all sources of love in my life today. From God, my generous husband, selfless parents, supportive family, and loyal friends — you included! What if we woke up everyday giddy to express our love to all, like we do on this special Valentine’s Day!? ❤️ “Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.” - Thomas S. Monson

Hi. What are YOU meant to do? . Is it business, business, business? All day, every day? . Do you remember a 1960s pop song that asks, “Is That All There Is”? Hmmmm... . Let me ask the same question a different way. Can you imagine someone making this dying wish: “Oh, I wish I could have sent my last client just one more email.” . Really? . Personally, I prefer another 1960s pop song that urges “Feed your head, feed your head.” . In other words, I join the world of Ideas. To think about what’s REALLY going on around here. To pursue Verifiable Truth, Timeless Beauty, and Personal Honor. . Now don’t get me wrong. I love helping people celebrate their weddings and parties with #theMagnliaJazzBand. To me, THAT’S a big deal, and I’m always glad to be involved. . But: What is life about after all? I don’t know where YOU live, but here in the SF Bay Area we live among world-class resources for Truth, Beauty, and Honor. Hundreds of museums, schools, stadiums, hospitals, convention centers, and theaters, from Pacifica to Sacramento, Carmel to Sonoma. As well as some of the most gorgeous gardens and natural scenery in the world. . A few of my favorite resources here in the South Bay include the #ComputerHistoryMuseum, #TheTechInteractive, #TritonMuseum of Art, #OperaSanJose, #StanfordLive, and the #SanJoseMuseum of Art. . I visit often and recommend them to you, too. Or similar places in your own neighborhood. “Feed your head” and find your destiny. . Here we are at Stanford’s #CantorArts Center a few years ago, admiring Rodin’s sculptures and thinking about Valentine’s Day. It’s always the right time for a little romance, right? . How about you? How do YOU refresh your soul these days? . Thanks for reading. I appreciate your interest and hope you get a few good ideas here. What did you like? Start a conversation -- I'll reply. Promise. . Meanwhile, are you planning a special event? If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, throw a party and include us. Are friends talking about a wedding? Please recommend us. . How can I help you?

Hello spring fleurs! Loving how the light and shadows swirl between each petal — especially on those ranuncs.

Although I earned a business degree, my favorite subjects were always fine art subjects. Dance, music, art and the humanities make my soul sing and are inspiration for my floral designs! I’m grateful my floral business encourages me to combine two of my greatest passions as a means to connect with wonderful people, brides and creatives alike!

Hi. Planning a celebration soon? Wedding or party? . Want a few helpful tips? Nearly every day I help people choose songs for #theMagnoliaJazzBand at their celebrations. . Here we are in a quiet cocktail party at the #ComputerHistoryMuseum, in Mountain View. Our job is making the guests’ conversations easy and enjoyable. . Selecting music SHOULD be easy and fun.  You can do it, and I can help. Please use any of my favorite tips — they’ll help you focus on exactly what you want.  Here are a few examples: . • Ask yourself first about the atmosphere you want to create. What overall mood do you want for your guests? Formal, elegant, and sophisticated? Casual and mellow? Upbeat and rousing? Soft background for conversations? . • Want a unifying theme for your event? Keep a vivid image in mind, and share your vision with everyone helping you plan. . • Don’t plan just visually. What do you want your party to SOUND like? . • Whether your heart’s set on one musical style or if you’d prefer a few different ones, what styles are available? . • Are you getting recommendations from friends & colleagues, wedding & party professionals, musicians & entertainment agencies, and local listings? . • Are you contacting possible bands or DJs? (Do more than just asking “What’s your fee?”. Focus on how they’ll make your celebration exactly what you want.) . • Will you speak with the musicians who’ll actually provide your music? . • Are you checking their experience, references, websites, and their live performances? . So here’s my best suggestion: Use these tips as just the beginning, and ask lots of questions. Search systematically! . Thanks for reading. I appreciate your interest and hope you get a few good ideas here. What did you like? Start a conversation -- I'll reply. Promise. . Meanwhile, are you planning a special event? If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, throw a party and include us. Are friends talking about a wedding? Please recommend us. . How can I help you?

So, Kim and Michael's wedding this last Saturday was just perfect! The weather was not too hot or cold, the sun was peaking through, not a cloud in the sky. Michael wrote and sang an original song to Kim, cultures united, dance floors torn. This day was just perfect! Congratulations Kim and Michael!

Hi. Are you about to plan a wedding or a party? . Want a handy tip? Tips for planning your music are easy to find online. Social media can help you find thousands of them. . I’ve contributed plenty of tips that I use when #theMagnoliaJazzBand entertains at weddings and parties, like these 3 brief video clips from a recent showcase at the new @HiltonGardenInnSunnyvale. Thanks for these videos, Danielle. . I’ve been posting tips for planning music, especially on Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram.  Social media posts like these are useful in a unique way: We can leave comments and questions for their authors.  They and their readers can reply back to us.  In addition, we can read and reply to comments on other posts, too, so all readers can engage at a deeper level. . Now, several years ago, I wrote: “I’ve always loved reading. I consider a book as a conversation with the author. Whether writing fact or fiction, he has something to tell me, and I always learn something new.” . I was praising reading for recreation, inspiration, and information, and at that time, reading was only a one-way conversation. Like a phone call where you can only listen, but not speak. . Nowadays, social media create two-way conversations.  If you need tips for planning music at your wedding or your next party, searching is now MUCH more fruitful than just a few years ago. . How about you? Do you actively search social media for useful information?. . Here’s a tip to find help planning wedding or party music: Search social media, read a few posts about your project, and leave a comment or a question on every one.  Then expect helpful replies from the posts’ authors and probably a few readers. . Thanks for reading. I appreciate your interest and hope you get a few good ideas here. What did you like? Start a conversation -- I'll reply. Promise. . Meanwhile, are you planning a special event? If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, throw a party and include us. Are friends talking about a wedding? Please recommend us. . How can I help you?

The grain of #kodaktrix400, mixed with the classic architecture of Stanford Cathedral, make this wedding look frozen in time. Was this shot taken last week or 50 years ago?? Spoiler, it was 2019. Eden & Mike chose a phenomenal venue, with natural light flooding the alter during their early ceremony.
