I have the fondest memories of going to the Nutcracker every year when I was growing up. I always thought it was so magical... the music, the story, the dancing, the costumes, the snow softly falling onstage near the end of the show... :)

Every time I see the Nutcracker, I leave feeling inspired and completely in the holiday spirit. Although we don't go every year anymore, it is always a treat to go and it still makes me feel like I am a little girl again, watching the ballerinas twirl in their fancy costumes...

What are some of your

favorite childhood &

holiday memories?

This week, the topic for Pink Saturday is exactly this.. favorite childhood memories of the holiday season. Read about it here! :)

Happy weekend, xo!

Ah, your memory is a sweet one. I adore The Nutcracker, too. I even have an old photo from one of my recitals of me in my pink tutu.

Happy Pink Saturday, Holly. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday that will become another sweet memory.

The Nutcracker has been a favorite in our house ...well...forever. All three of my children have seen it every year at the local theater since they were in nursery school...they are all grown now. Thank you for that lovely reminder.
