It was an amazing evening. Really. The music was so lovely thanks to all the help from my ensemble and to Ann and Sara of Prima Vox fame. The crowd was warm and responsive. Many more people came this year than last to benefit VINE Faith in Action. We truly drove the cold winter away, if only for a few hours. A precious, beautiful few hours.
Afterward, I kicked off my shoes, took the flower from my hair
and enjoyed some mulled wine at my house
with the generous people who helped make everything happen.
I promise I'll post some video excerpts of the concert for you to enjoy. So stay tuned! But for the next few days I'll be resting and reorganizing, letting my thoughts unravel, creating a clear slate in preparation for the rest of December's performances.
However, I will give you this sneak peek at the dress I finally decided on wearing...
Rich, red and ruffly. A crowd-pleaser.
And the flower.
I want to wear a flower in my hair
every single day until spring comes.
What do you think - do you dare me?
