"Guess who at this table got a weave this week."

I love traditions- especially ones that involve camp friends and eating lunch together. For three years now we have gathered anyone that could come at Paradise for lunch a few days before Christmas. Today my mom called while I was there and said, "Oh you're with camp friends in paradise? That just sounds perfect!" 



I think it's so cool how this group stays connected. Some of these friends haven't worked for a couple summers. Emily and Lil drove 2 hours just for lunch. We haven't seen each other in months and we are all just so happy to be together.

We sat in Paradise for four hours telling stories about what is going on in our lives, drinking probs too much Diet Coke, talking about what is happening next, and plans for Christmas.


Then...

I GOT TO GO TO WICKED!


I first saw Wicked in Chicago with Kata a couple years ago and Molls and I were so excited to see it here in Indy. 

I love the whole production- the songs, costumes, set, choreography, and storyline. I love that Elphaba and Glinda are friends even though they're so different.  I love that you can hear everyone in the audience whisper-singing along to the songs. I love that the songs make more sense after seeing the show. I love that Elphaba really isn't wicked at all but is one of my favorite fictional characters ever. I love that Elphaba is such a rockstar, "AND NOBODY IN ALL OF OZ, NO WIZARD THAT THERE IS OR WAS, IS EVER GONNA BRING MEEEEEEEEE DOWN!"


"So if you care to find me, look to the Western sky. As someone told me lately "Everyone deserves a chance to fly". And if I'm flying solo, at least I'm flying free. To those who ground me, take a message back from me- tell them how I  am defying gravity."
