Yesterday we went to the Nutcracker with the Milwaukee Ballet. I absolutely loved it. I felt like I was in a dream. The costumes, the set, the ballerinas and the amazing music. I kept wanting to close my eyes and get lost in the music, but then I realized I'd miss the show. We were third row, right behind the orchestra, the best seats I've ever had. It was my second time there, but our daughter's first. I was so excited to take her because she's been dancing since she was four. Well....she liked it but didn't love it she said. I was a bit disappointed to hear that for sure, but I still think it was a special holiday experience to share with her. We'll see if next year she has any interest, but I won't push it. But I sure did love it myself. I guess the little girl in me who wanted to be a ballerina or an ice skater is still drawn to this.
