Cole and I had our annual date to see my niece dance in the Nutcracker Ballet. She was absolutely beautiful. At the age of 14 she has more grace and presences on stage than I have in any aspect of my life. She has been dancing since she was 2 years old. It has been amazing to watch her journey through dance. It’s even more amazing to watch her grow up on the stage. She is no longer a little girl dancing on the stage. She has matured into a beautiful dancer that remains ageless on stage. (She even had the stage all to herself today!!!)
You were beautiful today Caileigh!
The journey between who you once were,
and who you are now becoming,
is where the dance of life really takes place.

Dance is an art, paint your dream and follow it.

She is such a beautiful and graceful dancer. I feel so blessed to watch her and I’m so thrilled that our family supports her by attending her performances! Cole was such a honey humming along to the music!! I am such a lucky Grandma to have my sweet Grandkids live so close and their beautiful Mom’s!
These totally just brought back all of my own Nutcracker performance memories…and is it sad that I know exactly which number each of those costumes is from???
I didn’t know you were a dancer! Caileigh has been dancing in The Nutcracker since she was a mouse!
