with Nutcracker kids in DC

Nutcracker Tour in Washington DC

We left Chicago last Monday but unfortunately spent much of the day at the airport because of terrible weather.  I will say that things happen for a reason because as soon as we arrived in Washington it was like I was rewarded.  It was beautiful outside and decided to take a nice walk.  It was...

The End to a Great Joffrey Fall Program

The Joffrey finished it’s run of it’s fall program All Stars yesterday and I have to say, what an amazing feeling (but sad as well) to be done with a run you thought was so successful.  I realized we did quite well, which is of course, how it should be.  It’s weird in some ways... Read more »
