Tonight I start ballet lessons... something I've wanted to do since, well, since right around the time I learned to pronounce the word ballet. Baby Ballerina

Much to my would-be dancer's chagrin, that particular dream never came to fruition, and my aspirations didn't go much further than pilfering a lot of shoelaces to tie around my ankles. But I was recently inspired by my lovely new friend Elizabeth (who is both a talented photographer and a dancer/ballet instructor), and am now signed up for the introductory class offered for adults at the Ballet School of Chapel Hill. Swan Lake, here I come!  :D

Buying these today was more exciting than it probably should've been... a dream thirty-plus years in the making:Ballet SlippersWish me luck! (Or even better... if you live around here, come join me!)
