What I Learned At Phantom of the Opera With The Girls

Recently, a friend invited me to join in a little girl time at Phantom of the Opera. What a treat! I have to say I love musicals, theatre and Broadway. Yet, somewhere in there between expecting twins and mothering twin sons, my cultural experiences in the musical arena have been simultaneously narrowed down.

Here's What I Learned At Phantom of the Opera With The Girls:

1) I realized how Thankful I am for my heritage in that my mother loved music and participated in Pops, the Orchestra, our church musicals and music department etc. all of my life and she passed this love on to us.
2) I am thankful for all the lessons I was given in music - years of Piano and some Flute. They are old friends I am thankful to have.
3) I love Musicals - they take me away;
4) I love sitting and relishing my life in a way in those moments that only I can do in this extra-ordinary way and setting;
5) Time with the Girls is always a real delight and blessing;
6) The Starbucks really adds to the conviviality - especially the Cafe Mocha;
7) Music speaks;
8) I love dressing up a little and being out on the town;
9) I do love being still and hearing and feeling the music; and
10) Love is powerful!

It was a great time. Take a little time to see something special this season. Do you enjoy cultural events like this? And when was the last time you took in something similar?

See you next week with "What I Learned When I Voted Early!" :) Did you register for this week's "Win It Wednesday" Santa's Plate. :) The Giveaway is Wednesday. Have an awesome Weekend!

I danced and acted for over 15 years. I take great enjoyment in music - almost all forms of music. Unfortunately, I can't carry a tune to save my life. (You should hear me belt out showtunes in the car.) Fortunately, I married a musician. I am so glad he will be able to pass this down to our children, just as your mother did to you.

I love music... and live music especially! I once saw (and heard) Beethoven's 9th Symphony performed live and it literally gave me chills.

I like Phantom, too. I've actually seen it three times which is a bit much.

It sounds like such a relaxing and rejuvinating night! I can imagine the Starbucks and the music...sounds heavenly!

Oh, dances, ballet, and musicals are really missing right now. With four boys and a manly man hubster I haven't been in a long time. Sounds like a lot of fun!
The pic below looks like my buddies now, so cute.

Phantom is my favorite musical! I, too, enjoy musicals and was in a few when I was younger (HS and college). It's nice to get away from "normal" clothes and enjoy a special night every once in a while. I think I'm due one of those soon! :)
