One Magical Night with My Lulu Pie & Mom!

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”
- Audrey Hepburn

My Mom and I took my niece, Peyton Angel Grace (My Lulu Pie) to see Annie at the Fox Theatre last night. You would have thought we handed her a million dollars. On second thought it was as if she had won the HGTV house! She took in every second as if to capture every moment in her memory! She giggled, she sang, she lit up and twinkled over and over like stars in the sky. She shines so big and makes others shine big in her company. She has the optimism of Annie! My desire in life is to enjoy life as much as she does. She skips everywhere she goes! I LOVE that quality in her. It started to rain harder as we skipped and ran on our way, which turned into a twirling Peyton Grace and dancing our way to the car as the sky opened up with and abundance of sweet drops of rain everywhere. She is my great reminder that even the greatest of moments can happen in rain if you take a second to just dance and laugh until your tummy hurts. In this walk, skip, dance to the car, she would not get in the car until my Mom got there. She adores my Mom. The other day she stated to my Mom, "You, Me, FUN!" They have the best time together. As I watched the broadway show, I kept catching myself watching them instead of the show. They twinkle with delight in one another's company! Just wanted to share the magical night with you and remind you to skip, sing and TWIRL in the rain!
