today is taylor's first dance recital. yesterday was dress rehearsal and i was that mom that got teary eyed watching my daughter dance. dance was a huge part of my childhood...i danced for 16 yrs and my parents attended countless recitals and performances. it feels really special being on the other side watching taylor do the same thing. *i wish i was creative enough to have a ballerina inspired party waiting for her after the recital...instead it will most likely be pizza :)
my husband and one of his good friends had spent the last 18 weeks training for the chicago marathon. we were suppose to be in chicago this last week with two other couples....ironically, all of us lost our homes during the flood.
