HOW ‘BOUT THEM ROYALS?? We are sooooo excited here in Kansas City today! It’s been a long time coming for the Royals to head back to the World Series (29, last year) and finally win again (30, this year). We’re having a blast celebrating our boys in blue. The big victory parade and rally are tomorrow downtown. I wish I could have made it to more games over the summer, but have really enjoyed cheering on this team that I used to pay $8 to sit in good seats in a practically empty stadium to what they’ve become today—World Series champions! These two magazines are my current reading material this week 🙂

yo-yo ma + kathryn stott

KCMetropolis.orgNew issue of KCMetropolis.org today, and I have one review: Yo-Yo Ma, cello and Kathryn Stott, piano on the Harriman-Jewell Series. The recital was on my wedding anniversary, October 16, but my husband was out of town! So this was a nice treat that evening, even though Nick wasn’t with me—we’ll find another time to celebrate. Anyway, the recital was brilliant, masterful, so amazing. Yo-Yo Ma exceeded all my expectations—he is really a wonderful musician to witness live, he plays with such joy and passion. He even shouted “Go Royals!” on his way off stage after the performance! (For those who don’t know, our Kansas City Royals are in the World Series this week… the last time they were in the World Series was 1985, 29 years ago! So we’re all pretty excited here in the City of Fountains.)
