A Dream Come True

Last night I dusted off my dress shoes, unburied my jewelry box, mixed up my separated-because-it-hasn’t-been-used-in-so-long custom blended foundation, pulled out an almost forgotten dress, and went on a date with my husband!  This wasn’t just any date, though.  He took me to see the Broadway musical The Lion King!!!  (Can you tell I’m excited?!)

When I found out several months ago that The Lion King was coming to Des Moines, I began secretly hoping that my husband would surprise me with tickets.  I never asked him if we could go.  He knew from numerous past conversations how badly I’ve always wanted to see The Lion King; and the awesome husband that he is, I knew that he would grant my desire if it was at all possible.

Well, he didn’t let me down!  And neither did the show!  It. was. AMAZING!  The set, the costumes, the mind-blowing talent… I was absolutely enthralled by every part of it.  As I watched the show, taking in every detail, I had to keep reminding myself that I was really there.  I felt totally privileged to be in the presence of such extremely gifted people, and I was thankful to God for the opportunity to enjoy the talents that He has given them.  It was an experience like nothing I’ve ever had.

All dressed up with somewhere to go!

My Christmas gift from my wonderful husband!

What a night!
