My husband is becoming somewhat of a cruise director..minus the boat of course. He is constantly scouring the internet looking for things we can do together now that we live in a city.
This week-end, we went to the ballet.
Now let me just say that we have always been much more of a sports couple..not so much into the arts. In fact I’m pretty sure the last ballet we attended was a recital for one or more of our kids- many, many, many years ago. Not gonna lie, I wasn’t really looking forward to the evening.
But guess what..it wasn’t just great, it was INCREDIBLE! Maybe it was the fact that we were sitting in the third row; you could see the dancers’ expressions and hear them breathing after each dance. Maybe I could just appreciate all the work that went into rehearsals knowing it takes my husband and me about six months to get one ballroom dance down straight! 😏 Maybe it was the scenery or the costumes or the fact that the story was easy to follow.. Maybe it was the fabulous cocktail I had in the lobby…I’m sure that didn’t hurt.
I have no idea why I loved it so much, but we both did and I’m so glad we keep straying outside of our “comfort zone.”
Stretching one’s horizons truly is just as important as stretching one’s muscles. 👍
