Tonight was pure magic and a day I never want to forget. I got to take Harlow to a behind the scenes dress rehearsal of The Nutcracker. We got to sit on the stage, watch the artistic director direct the dancers, watch the dancers stretch and then perform. Afterwards we got to meet the dancers and Harlow was so excited. She be-lined straight to Clara (her absolute favorite) and they chatted about dresses and ballet shoes. She then visited the rest of the dancers and told them how she was going to be Clara next year! .
I got her a special dress to wear tonight but she insisted on wearing her ‘Clara dress’ this is the dress she wore to see the Nutcracker for the first time last year and I swear that performance sparked something in her. She loves that dress and wears it daily (and that’s not an exaggeration) she even sleeps in it. She loves that dress and in her little mind she is truly Clara when she wears it. So even though it’s filthy she was just beaming in it. And I love how she told Clara all about her dress!
Watching her watch the dancers, follow their feet with her eyes and look with awe inspiring reaction to all of it, made this momma heart so happy! .
Sorry for the long post. These are truly the moments I live for. #harlowocean#thenutcrackerballet

This is the time when we go back to our roots. A time when we open our eyes and take in deep breaths and let our hearts fill slowly with wonder. We remember and reflect and in some ways, we restart.
It’s almost cliche now to say that we should celebrate like this every season, every year, all of our years. But isn’t there some truth in there? If our hearts can be this full now, must there not be a wonder worth wondering over?

L'équilibre est une chose difficile à atteindre: nous en avons besoin pour bien vivre. À mon humble avis, une vie équilibrée finit par être une oscillation constante entre une période de calme et de petits bonheurs tranquilles pour ensuite reprendre de la vitesse et aller à fond dans ce projet qu’est la vie. J'en suis venu à croire que c'était peut-être le seul moyen de mener une vie épanouissante. Parce que la slowlife c’est trouver cette balance parfaite entre tous ces éléments. Et aujourd’hui est une journée parfaite pour notre ensemble : «slow morning» qui permettra de recharger nos batteries pour entamer la nouvelle semaine qui commence. 🙏🏻✨ #theartofslowliving
