This has been a tumultuous week.
And when I say tumultuous, I mean, rollercoaster.

But first, a few highs:

Norbert and I celebrated Valentine's a few days early.
I had no idea what events he had planned for the night so the whole evening was one wonderful surprise after another.
I love surprises.

We started here first.

We left the restaurant in kind of a rush because apparently we had to be somewhere at a specific time....

I didn't know he was taking me here until we actually drove into the parking lot.
And let me just tell you:
I love theater.
I love live performance.

And man alive, I love Cirque du Soleil, so yes I screamed a bit when I realized where we were going :)

It was absolutely amazing. Of course!
There was a whole lot of, 'oh my god!', 'holy sh*t,' 'did they seriously just do that?!'.
It's like viewing the human body, performing at its highest ability, and then swathing it in a vision of beauty and light.
It just totally and completely blows you away......

And then post performance we headed here for a night cap and some dessert.

It was really, such a fantastic evening.
This was our 10th one, so we felt especially festive.....


And then a few days later my Dad got sick.
Really sick.
The kind of sick that warrants a trip to the hospital for four days.

Thankfully, he's on the mend. Slowly.

The past week has been totally off and I know this has a lot to do with it.
Feels a little bit like functioning through a fog.

But, I'm still taking my camera everywhere and taking pictures everyday.
Even of these moments.

Capturing the highs.
And the lows.
