Bon Bon’s, Mouse King, Herr Drosselmeier, Sugar Plum Fairy…
Last year we attended a Nutcracker Ballet for the very first time. Mom and I and the ‘Little Lady’ awaited the day with great anticipation. We were not to be disappointed. The exquisite costumes were fashioned in Russia. The dancers had skill and precision from hours of practice, driven by a passion only known to a ballerina. The Beauty on stage that night was breathtaking and talked about all year long.
Now once again, our tickets are purchased and we count down the days when we will dress up and enjoy the event all over again.
This time we have a very special guest who will be joining us. This Beautiful Lady will make our entourage 4 generations instead of 3. She is my precious Grandma Pearl who has influenced my life in the most wonderful way. (That makes Great-Grandma for the ‘Little Lady’.)
She flew in from Kansas for this unforgettable occasion.
We won’t even be able to capture the Beauty of the night on film, but oh, we will try… ~Lindsey
