Have you seen the Greatest Showman yet? We're kind of obsessed around here. The first time Alex saw it, he said, "well, I've just seen the greatest movie in existence." That pretty much sums it up! We have a family full of performers, so the movie holds an extra special place in our hearts. We're gearing up for our dance competition season, starting this weekend. So I thought it would be a good time to post some photos of my greatest showmen!

Oh friends, we have such a treat for you today! I'll go ahead and warn you ahead of time... this is a very lengthy post! I had so much trouble narrowing down my favorite photos. I love them all, and they all tell a part of the story of this incredible day. Now comes the hard part - trying to figure out what to say about this amazing, classic Memphis Hunt and Polo Club wedding. While I love words, and I love to talk, trying to find the right words for all the awesomeness that happened on this day is going to be a challenge. But I'll give it my best shot...

Oh friends, I am so excited to share this special Senior session with you today! We are so lucky to know some really talented dancers (other than our own, of course). A few of them in our company will be graduating this year, and we will be super sad to see Lauren go! We were honored when she asked us to do her Senior photos for her, and more than happy to document this special year for her and her family. We were especially excited that she wanted to incorporate some ballet photos! Be sure to scroll all the way down to watch the fun highlight film we put together for her (and to see her dance)!

Things in our lives are never spaced out. They happen all at once, all the time. I've grown used to it, and I'm completely okay with the patterns of our busy family. So it came as no surprise that our biggest dance competition of the year also fell on PROM weekend!

The first week of our vacation is a bit of a blur! We spent 6 full days in Nashville for our kids' national dance finals competition. Our time there flew by, and yet, at the same time, it seems as though it was a full month ago. That "time flies when you're having fun" thing? It's totally true.

We can't complain about spending an entire week in the Ft. Walton Beach sand. Well, except that we didn't spend much of it in the sand. The real reason we are here is to watch our kiddos and our awesome dance studio compete for their national dance titles. So we spend most of the time here at the Convention Center with blankets and sweaters (they keep it so cold in there for the dancers)! But there are a couple non-dancing days that we are able to spend out on the beach.

Today, we're packing up and getting ready to leave bright and early tomorrow morning for the beach. This year's dance recital is over, which means it's time for the National Competition! Our whole family will be spending two weeks in Florida. One of those will be mostly consumed by dance (which is fine by us!), but we intend to totally morph into lazy beach bums for the other.
