Last year I took L to the Nutcracker for the first time and it was thrilling to see her little face light up as the familiar music started (we'd been listening to it nonstop for months beforehand) and the little oohs and ahhs as the dancing started was pretty priceless...we have tickets again this Saturday and I think I'm just as excited as she is...is there a more beautiful art form? I used to pore over A Very Young Dancer when I was in grade school (did you have this book - following a young girl who dances the role of Clara?) and I think one of my big regrets in life was never taking lessons...are you headed to the Nutcracker this season? Have you seen Black Swan yet? Do Tell!
Speaking of beautiful and elegant - Rali of Styles 'n Cream whipped up the most gorgeous crepes for the Recipe Exchange today - sounds like the perfect pre matinee breakfast to me!
