a ballet recital

IMAG1308

yesterday began with Lily’s dance rehearsal at twenty to nine in the morning

the girls did a run through and got acquainted with the stage and then we came back home to shower and get ready

a couple of hours later, we drove once again back to miami beach where we had lunch at one of our favorites, a la folie, with our friends and dance partners in crime

with our bellies nice and full, we took the girls to get ready at D’s house and then it was off to the colony theater where it was show time

i was a bit nervous for Lily but she did great!

her whole class did great actually

i didn’t know what to expect out of the show but walked away impressed with how talented all the dancers were from all different age groups

not only did i shed a tear by watching Lily (omg) but i got emotional by watching all the older dancers and thinking that one day that could be Lily

i can’t believe we were all there to watch her at her first recital yesterday

our Lily… in her first ballet recital

i can’t….

it was a good day

happy monday friends. hope you all had a wonderful weekend

ps- i wish i had better pictures and video of Lily on stage but no cameras were really allowed

pps- we are HERE today. go hear mine and Will’s love story
