It’s a Hard Knock Life

Annie2I know that Moving For Love encourages uprooting and settling someplace new and I am in full support of that.  Just because one’s location may change from year to year doesn’t mean that traditions cannot be deeply rooted.  This past weekend I spent two days in New York City with my daughter, a friend and her daughter.  It was our fourth annual summer girls trip.  We had a blast and the beauty of New York is you can have a completely different experience year after year.  A Broadway Show is always a must on this trip and this year we chose to see Annie.

As soon as the orphans began to sing It’s a hard knock life I could have sworn I was six years old in the Montgomery Elementary School talent show with my friend Stacey scrubbing the gym floor.  I LOVED Annie as a young girl and having the opportunity to take my daughter to the Broadway show just like my mom took me was such a warm feeling.  I am a sucker for traditions and especially for ones that stand the test of time.  There was no modern technology, the theme and the moral of the story were told fifty years ago and will continue to be told fifty years from now.  I hope it is much sooner than that my daughter is able to bring her daughter or son (as she pointed out, you never know if she will have girls or boys) to the show and walk away humming a tune and appreciating a happy ending.

If you now have Maybe stuck in your head and don’t want to dream about what could be but rather want to experience it firsthand, let us help you pave the way.
