me. dad. breezi.

OH MY GOSH! wicked was amazing. it was... lifechanging. we had such a good time, but more importantly... we had a great time being together & creating lasting memories. we got stuck in traffic, therefore we had the delicate appetizers of the pantages... costco muffins and wine from a plastic cup. we all laughed hysterically as we ate in our little corner by the bar in the lobby. only on a friday night in l.a. would it take you 1 hour & 45 minutes to go 9.2 miles. we shared memories as we drove. used the navigation system that breezi nicknamed 'sally', who was rather disturbed when we didn't go the way she wanted us to... 'sally', not my sister. we sat... the three of us, together. listening to the beautiful music & becoming emotionally wrapped into the characters. we waiting in a line for the bathroom that had the ropes to guide the 'traffic'. on our way home, i couldn't help but be thankful. i am always grateful for such a wonderful & beautiful sister... my best friend. i am always grateful for a spectacular & faithful daddy... a man who has guided me through my whole life. my daddy. rarely is anything more special than a relationship like this. we had our date night. one that was a long time coming. it was a precious & perfect. memories that will forever be burned into the corners of my heart & mind. my sister, my dad, & i... standing in our little corner & laughing, sharing, & being silly. together.

I'm so glad you had fun!!! Oh, and in Austin when there is traffic it can take that long to go 9.2 miles as well! :) And I think that I am in LA! :)
and I LOVE making the GPS upset... "recalculating, recalculating"!!! When Bre, Bekah and I went up to MADE last year we named ours Karen.
