blog giveway - let's dance

There once was a little girl who loved to dance. She would whirl and twirl around her canopy bed. Her Mom brought her to ballet lessons when she was 4 1/2.
Thanks Mom!
I took lessons until I graduated from high school
then danced in the state dance company.
Mom drove me to dance lessons for years and years... she watched countless dance recital rehearsals
until I am sure she knew all the dances by heart...

So here's to you Mom with all my love
and thanks to you for reading.

When I was young I took ballet lessons but stopped when horses became my passion. I still love to go to the ballet and do the NYC Ballet workouts at home. I admire your for sticking with it!! Your mom was a doll for taking you to lessons and recitals. My mom was always driving me to the stable and horse shows. We are both blessed to have such great moms!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

I was a mini ballerina too Karen. In my case it was my Dad who did the ballet run & sat & waited until class was over. Such a lovely acknowledgement of your Mum's dedication.
