Champagne Evenings

Dress: Ann Taylor

On the eve of Christmas Eve, Ben and I did our gift exchange and then headed out to the Oregon Ballet to see the Nutcracker. The Oregon Ballet Theatre puts on a beautiful George Balanchine show (one of the six Balanchine productions in the U.S.) based on the original production in the 1800s. The sets were so beautiful and the dances absolutely lovely. I am always moved to tears during the Snowflake dance and the finale. Oregon's production didn't disappoint and provided us with a holiday opportunity to get dressed up and celebrate both the holidays and some great news (I'll share soon).

We shared our first bottle of Moet (um, yum!) and I got to enjoy Ben in the rare suit occasion. A Christmas gift in itself. We're now in Eugene enjoying some family-time with Ben's family including some chilly weather and foggy evenings and a ton of wine. Such is life in wine-country.

Hope you all had a merry merry Christmas!


  1. I love that dress! the details on the side are perfect and you look great!

  2. You both look wonderful! That dress is gorgeous on you.

    I LOVE The Nutcracker and have seen Oregon's version quite a few times; it really is a lovely show.

    Merry Christmas! Enjoy the wine!

  3. You look wonderful! And happy... yum champagne. Hope you had a marvelous Christmas!!
