What a GREAT weekend! What a GREAT all-day date with my husband yesterday!
He's been working soooooo much lately that I just see him for a few hours at a time. But yesterday, he granted me from dawn till nightime! We read the paper, went out for a nice lunch where all I really wanted was a couple of cappuccinos, it was a gorgeous day here and warmer than normal with the sun shining brightly so we decided to walk about 2 miles to our afternoon event which was a ballet of the Great Gatsby.
It was INCREDIBLE! First, I LOVE the ballet. I did it as a kid and just think it's so beautiful. It was fun to get a literary combo out of this AND the music was amazing - just transporting you to the 20s, there were 2 AMAZING singers down with the band. The costumes were gorgeous, the set was so creative. It was GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!
Then we walked to an early dinner, stopping in this international, fair trade shop where we got a couple of CDs and he bought me a handbag I was eyeing as an early birthday present (not for 4 more weeks).
The restaurant was crowded, even at the early hour, so decided to have a drink at the bar while we waited and lo and behold - someone who went to my high school was our bartender! We had so much fun catching up that we decided to have dinner at the bar too!
And let's just say ... the day started and ended out just perfectly :)
Hope you all had a great weekend too or can at least live a bit vicariously... at least for the ballet part!
