lux aurumque

there's no other way to put it- yesterday was a crappy day.
hazel was a toddler-monster most of the day, and i ran around like a chicken with my head cut off until about 5pm.  i was rearranging the activity days schedule, and hoping everyone got the message, and making cookies for the activity, and running errands and making returns.... and then, i decided i deserved some chipotle, went and got chipotle, only to have hazel refuse her quesadilla {which she will usually eat}.  if it wasn't for the girls coming over for activity days at 6, i would have sat down and just had a good cry.

thankfully, the activity was awesome, and it brightened my day considerably to have those girls over.  but there's no rest for the weary, and we immediately went to drop hazel off at the sitter's, and then buzzed downtown for briana's concert.

here's the thing about music.  you can be at the end of your rope, ready to throw in the towel and have a good cry - and then if you hear the right song, at the right time, your soul is uplifted and your burden lightened.  i felt immediately lifted when the concert opened with this number:

we had a wonderful time at the concert, {i mean, every single number was amazing.} and now i have a new favorite composer to listen to.
