The Show Must Go On

I've always been extremely grateful to have a sister (who also happens to be my best friend), but I am even more grateful towards her during this difficult time. She was one of the first phone calls on the tragic night and I have to say, simply hearing her voice was comforting beyond belief. She might not have known what to say, but I could feel the love and support in her voice. She was also more than willing to let me raid her closet to find something to wear for the concert. It's odd that we don't borrow each other's clothes more often, seeing as we are pretty much the same size... I think it has something to do with the fact we each have unique styles. Either way, I was able to put a look together. I opted for a black mini with a feather-print top and a turquoise pendant. My sister was also more than happy to style my hair for the evening. This was the first time I wore make-up since the fire. I'm not huge on make-up, but when you literally have zero products, you notice just how far mascara and lipstick take you. It was an awesome feeling to get all prettied up and did me a world of good. The concert was also amazing. Céline truly is a remarkable person with tremendous talent. She gave a very intimate show with a lot of new songs intermixed with anecdotes of her children discovering the joys a Canadian summer has to offer. I truly was in the moment and felt all of the emotions the songs brought to light. This weekend definitely helped me get centered.
