For those who don't know, my sister Kate and I established the tradition of seeing Colorado Ballet's The Nutcracker every year at Christmastime when she was still in high school and I was living at home, going to grad school. I always start thinking about buying our tickets as soon as Thanksgiving is over. It's one of the things that makes it feel like Christmas is really here.
Last night we went out to dinner at Tom's Urban 24, then headed to the Ellie Caulkins Opera House for the show. It was a lovely time, even though the stranger next to me thought it appropriate to hum through all the songs that were familiar to her.
In other news, I've decided to delete my instagram account at the end of the year, so I'm on a farewell tour. I took a lot of instagrams of the evening's events. Enjoy!
