Scott and I have been trying to do special things with the kids individually or together.  It’s really important to do this I think.  Even if Scott takes them out alone for Ice Cream or something simple like that.

I have fallen in love with the ballet!  I took Ava to see ALICE.  I am taking both kids to see the Toybox!  It’s so fun to expose them to the Arts!  They seem to really enjoy it!

Even though it is important to have one on one time for each child it is even more important to try to have regular date nights with your spouse.  We are going on 10 years married this year!  This is something I think most couples struggle with.  Making time for just us!  Do you need a date night?  Do you love the ballet?

Please comment below how many date nights with your husband you think you have been on since kids!?  Winner will be chosen randomly for a voucher for 2 tickets to see CINCINNATI BALLET PRESENTS THE RETURN OF THE POPULAR MOZART’S REQUIEM (read more about this Ballet below)

Winner will be announced MARCH 6, 2015.   GOOD LUCK


The visually stunning Mozart’s Requiem, with choreography by Cincinnati Ballet Resident Choreographer Adam Hougland, comes to the Aronoff Center, Friday March 20 at 8pm and Saturday March 21 at 2pm and 8pm. Wolfgang Amadeaus Mozart’s powerful Requiem Mass is performed by the Cincinnati Ballet Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Carmon DeLeone, and features the Xavier University Concert Choir.

Long-time collaborator and Resident Choreographer Adam Hougland has choreographed several world premieres and new pieces in addition to his masterful, full-length Mozart’s Requiem. In 2011 he created a brand new production of The Firebird specifically for Cincinnati Ballet, and the same year was named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch.” A Cincinnati audience favorite, his work is frequently featured in The Kaplan New Works Series. He most recently contributed his talent to the collaborative performance of Over the Rhine Live and a piece in Frampton and Cincinnati Ballet Live, which was also performed in New York City in 2014.


I highly recommend going an hour before to meet the artists!
