How to celebrate New's Year's Eve? We've had so many different ways over the years: having friends to our house, going to parties at friends' houses, going to late movies with the kids when they were younger, visiting relatives/friends out-of-state. But what we like most these days:
having a candlelight dinner at home, then going to a live theatre performance (preferably a musical with a live orchestra). And just what we did in 2007.
This is the musical we went to presented by the Light Opera Works at the Cahn Auditorium in Evanston. Both of us love this musical! The cast was fantastic. The music was fabulous. Perfect combo!
The biggest challenge was not to belt out the tunes we knew by heart: "Oh What a Beautiful Morning," People Will Say We're in Love," I Cain't Say No," and "O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A!"
Wes as Curly; me as Laurie...or maybe Ado Annie? Who cares if we were two of the youngest in attendance? We had the best time!
As we walked back to our car, we were treated by the most beautiful snowfall...it looked like we were walking within a snow globe! A rather magical night to escort in another year...what will it bring our way?
Sometimes you want to know the good stuff, but I guess it's best to take it as it comes and try to find the "magic" in it no matter what the next 365 days bring our way. May we be kinder, gentler, wiser, healthier, richer in spirit and open to the possibilities!
