life of a ballerina.

hello! another new week has so quickly begun.
i'm hoping your weekend was full of good weather,
date nights, laughter, food, parties, relaxation and lovely friends.
our's was full of most of those things-
plus the dreaded homework, long work hours and too many rehearsals.
i'm happy and excited yet tired and sad to announce 
that it's my last week of dance for this season.
it's always a bitter sweet thing;
bitter: because the thought of not dancing or working out 
for a few months is frightening and depressing. 
also, saying goodbye to those not returning next year is never easy.
sweet: because my body kills and is begging me for a break.
plus- the end of the season means summer is finally here.
i have hundreds {not an exaggeration} of photos from this ballet season,
but i thought i'd share just a few to wrap it all up.
we finish our season off with romeo and juliet this weekend.
it will be a busy and stressful week, to say the least.
i hope to stay caught up in blogging and reading your lovely posts-
if i don't, bare with me and remember my summer starts
in a week from now and i'll have lots of time to do just that.
unfortunately, the semester doesn't end until the end of may-
but believe me, not having to dance for six hours a day,
certainly frees up a lot of my time. 
cheers to the last busy week of the season.
