I’ll never forget that soul-touching performance moment!


I hope all is well, and you can feel that spring is getting closer!

I sure feel springy in my heart since I had a really touching experience at Florida’s Estonian Independence Day celebration. This is what happened: one of the songs I decided to sing at the formal reception was about the meaning of being an Estonian. This song means a lot to me, especially after being away from my homeland for 12 years. I held up a small flag, swung it in the air and sang by heart. Suddenly, in the middle of the song I saw a man standing up, grabbing a decorative flag from a flower arrangement while singing along. One by one, people started standing up, grabbing flags, singing along and crying. Those who didn’t get a flag grabbed a blue napkin. To stand on stage and face all of that beauty was breathtaking. Needless to say, my heart was trembling, and I had tears in my eyes. I’ll never forget that soul-touching moment.

If you’re interested in Estonian Culture, you have a great opportunity to attend the New York Estonian Cultural Days on March 23-27. Those days are packed with music, film, lectures, dance and theatre. Click here to find out more!

February was also fun because I got to shoe model a lot. What’s not to love about whirling around in beautiful Stuart Weitzman shoes during the FFANY shoe show week and rocking out cool looking Sperry’s?!
