This post was inspired by two hours of listening to Tchaikovsky. It makes me wish I lived in a place where it snows. I also wish I’d stuck with the ballet classes. My posture would be better. Why do the holidays bring up so many regrets?

  1. One of the most enchanting posts I’ve seen in a long, long time. Gorgeous and I wish right now it were snowing. You had me Tchaikovsky!

    Wishing you a magnificent Holiday x

    Such wonderful pictures.
    Well, it’s never too late to pick it back up. I started ballet again this year as a part of my musical theatre course and it’s interesting how quickly you progress again.

    …because we’re looking back at a year. But it isn’t too late, no, to do some ballet. I’ve become enamored of the Ballet Beautiful streaming videos & there are DVDs now. It’s not quite the same as going to a class but you might think about that, as well.

    As for the snow, can’t help you there. Does it make it any easier that us snow bunnies have been in the 50s/60s (F) so far? No? I didn’t think so. Maybe a little planning for next year? We sure would love to see you in the east. Merry Christmas, dear Tina.

    Thank you for the lovely images. I look forward to going to the Nutcracker each Christmas but this year it just wasn’t in our budget. Your post reminded me of the magic. xo

  10. Love these photos! I live somewhere where it snows, but it snows so rarely, I’ve been wishing of moving to somewhere where it snows more!

    My 12 year old daughter has been in the Nutcracker 6 years in a row. Every summer she wants to quit ballet. Then, I remind her how much she loves performing in the Nutcracker & she toughs it out!!!
