The Nutcracker Ballet

Growing up, I remember my mother taking me to see The Nutcracker Ballet every year. I remember dressing in my Sunday best, bundling up in mittens and warm coats, and heading off to be transported into another world. The lights would dim, the curtain would rise, the music would start, and my world would fall away. In its place was a world where dreams come to life and words were unnecessary. A world where a daring Nutcracker will do whatever it takes to save his love. One year, after much pleading on my part, my tom-boy mom finally let me agree to take ballet and I got to be IN the Nutcracker. It was truly magical!

This year, start your own holiday tradition and go see  the Children's Ballet Theater Nutcracker at the Germantown Performing Arts Center. This ballet is perfect for the entire family. The many children featured in the show are amazing, talented, and adorable. The young teenager that plays Clara is a delight and the professional Tennessee Ballet Theater dancers bring an amazing classical ballet performance. Beautiful hand made costumes and sumptuous Baroque scenery transport the audience into Clara's world and into her dreams. The hour and a half long performance is directed by Mary Van Dyke. Children's Ballet Theater Nutcracker is a delightful way to celebrate the holiday season with the whole family! Order your tickets today! The shows are Saturday, December 16, at 6 p.m. and Sunday, December 17, at 2:30 p.m. This is one thing you do not want to miss out on!

I have a serious question. (This rarely happens. *wink*) When did it become okay to be late? Maybe I’m old-school or am just imagining it (I’m not.), but it seems these days it’s becoming more and more typical for people to casually stroll into meetings 10-15 minutes late, blow off dinner plans for an hour […]
Veterans Day and Our Kids
My first memories of celebrating Veterans Day are from elementary school. In my tiny hometown of Bruceton, TN, we had an awesome celebration each year to honor veterans in the area.
