We are getting settled into our brand new year and I want to apologize for not blogging as much as I usually do, but our December was a bit hectic. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and that your new year is off to a great start! Personally, new beginnings are always exciting and full of great expectations and we believe this year will bring us lots of beautiful things that will help us all grow as human beings.
As we get older, I believe our prospective on what is really important changes. Nurturing our spirits and spending quality time with friends and family become more and more important. Probably because we gain the wisdom of realizing just how very short our time on this planet is. We have made a lot of new friends online because both Ronn and I have been live streaming regularly and quite like the interaction we get from both Periscope and Facebook Live.
Because of live streams is another reason I just haven’t been blogging quite as much. It seems to be a much more immediate connection that get from doing them. So I have now made a schedule of live stream scopes that you can follow on Periscope where I cook with you guys, take you to red carpet events and parties, share my beauty and health tips and get into deep discussion in what I call, peritherapy. I also giveaway monthly prizes such as Devin’s Kickass Cajun Seasoning, autographed DVDs, photos, trading cards and clothing! So join me on Periscope for daily broadcasts and let’s get to know each other better there!
Ronn loves Facebook Live and is now doing his Ronn’s Garage from there. You can comment and follow him by subscribing when he’s’ live so that you know when he’s going live in the future and interact with him on a regular basis there. It’s also a cool way to really keep up with his latest concerts and behind the scenes of what we are doing now and what’s coming up!
I will still blog and keep you guys updated here on key things, but if you really want to keep up with us live streaming is where we will be. You can also catch up on all the broadcasts you missed by going to Katch.me. We hope to see you all in one of our future broadcasts!
It seems as if Spring has sprung earlier than usual this year. I’m not complaining because it’s one of my favorite seasons. It’s so nice to see the flowers blooming and the time change has made our days longer. However, Spring for us means more parties to attend and this past week we attended two amazing parties starting out with our dear friend fashion designer, Sue Wong’s fashion show.
Sue was kind enough to want to dress me for her big event, but I had no time due to too many business meetings we have been having recently for Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce. So I found my own Sue Wong dress and enjoyed the festivities of her amazing after party that Jawn Star attended with us, along with Gun’s n Rose’s keyboardist, Chris Pitman. Sue always has great entertainment at her beautiful home, “The Cedars,” which can only be described as a work of art from the décor to the history of it.
Last night we attended the Mayor’s Mask Ball and got to wear our amazing hand painted and designed masks. Our masks were gifts and made for us by Sergio Boldrin. Sergio is the premiere mask maker in Venice, Italy. This event was for the UNCF and we were happy to catch up with our friend singer, Freda Payne. Also in attendance were the gorgeous Jayne Kennedy and Jeffery Osbourne. Ronn’s mask was a bit scary, but he got tons of compliments on it.
So now that Spring has sprung and our taxes are done, I’m finally have some time to focus on writing and more creative endeavors. We have some amazing projects forming that I will tell you about soon. Right now our focus is stopping to smell the beautiful roses that are blooming in our yard. I feel like there hasn’t been much down time for us and I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed. It’s important to take the time to spend with family and friends.
We took the day off to spend with our friend Tina Hillstrom, who was our Matron of Honor. Tina, as most of you guys know loves to socialize and entertain. So I’m happy to share a video of her amazing afternoon lunch that she threw in honor of Ronn’s birthday. She taught her pet rabbits how to walk for their treats and it’s just too cute! So if Spring has already sprung for you, please take the time to stop and smell the roses. If you are still experiencing the harshness of winter, try to stay warm and look forward to Spring and all the beauty it brings!
It has been so good to be home and see all of our dear friends during this holiday season. In fact, we have had non -stop holiday parties that we have been attending. Fashion designer Sue Wong had us at her spectacular home for her unbelievable holiday party last week. We enjoyed the Thalian’s holiday gala where Player sang. Player is now recording the 25,000th song for Songs of Love and will appear on “The Home and Family Show” tomorrow. And we enjoyed our dear friends the Cusumano’s holiday festivities.
Being home for the holidays is what we enjoy the most. It’s always so hectic to travel during the holidays that it is our preference. So this holiday season I am just so grateful to be home and sleep in my own bed. I’m grateful for all the love and support you guys have given us this past year during all of the new endeavors.
Right now we are all enjoying the new episodes of “The Bay” and John Blackwell and as producers of this awesome series, we are anticipating some Emmy nominations next year! We are also excited about Ronn’s Kickass BBQ Sauce and just know that the best is yet to come with that as we launch smaller versions of it, along with other Cajun products at DevRonn.
I’m not struggling to get into the holiday spirit after being in Australia during their summer. It took a while to adjust to being back home during a cooler climate and all the holiday festivities to get me into the spirit of it. I still feel so behind on things like cards and gifts this year and plan to do most of my shopping online! Actually, there is nothing I really want Santa to bring me except peace and love from all our wonderful family and friends. Please know how much we appreciate all of you and that we wish you only the most joyous of holiday seasons! I will post a holiday chat on Livestream soon, so if you haven’t joined Livestream please do so to chat live with us! Wishing you holiday blessings!!
