The Morning After has arrived…I hope you had a very Merry Christmas with your families!!  This week has been the most relaxing for me personally in many years.  I spent yesterday at my mom’s with my close family (those are my daughters Jessica & Katie with me in the picture) and it was wonderful catching up on our lives a bit.  There’s nothing like a shared meal and time together with our loved ones to renew our spirits.

I was so touched by all the notes and gifts you sent me this Christmas.  Thank you so much for your generosity!  I am so privileged and honored to dance with you.  Can’t wait to see you all again!  The time off has been rejuvenating, but I miss everyone.

Upcoming items of interest…

I’ll be attending the UCWDC Country Dance Worlds Championships in Nashville, TN ( next week, from 12/30 – 1/5.  The Cadillac Ranch Dance Team will be performing in the Line Dance Lobby one evening during the weekend; I’m so excited!!  If any of you might use some time off and swing into Nashville, Megabus ( offers an overnight bus which is reasonably priced.  Hop on it and text me your info and I’ll come pick you up at the bus station!  This will be one heck of a field trip!!!

Additionally, back in Chicagoland, Cadillac Ranch is hosting their annual New Year’s Eve Party on Tuesday, which REPLACES line dance lessons for that evening.  The regular dances for the weekend (Beginners’ Night Friday at Cadillac Ranch, Warrenville Dance on Saturday, and Family Days Sunday afternoon at Cadillac Ranch) WILL CONTINUE; we’ve got some fantastic **surprise** substitute teachers for lessons on those nights.  Get back on the floor and dance off all those cookies!!

See you on the dance floor!
