Recently we were given an amazing invitation to attend Hob Nobble Gobble, a charity event held inside Ford Field in Detroit. I have heard about this event for years, the entire football field is transformed into an indoor carnival, black-tie style. To say we were excited to be invited is an understatement BUT
I rarely do things like this, it’s a late night for the kids, a long drive, I have nothing to wear… there are a million excuses in my much-more-comfortable-at-home brain.
For once I said yes…
I wore more than just lipgloss and mascara, bought a dress I am still dreaming about and high-heeled it out of my comfort zone.
We won every prize because you couldn’t lose,
rode every ride we could talk the kids into,
tested out gravity (I skipped this one, flowing dress + steep incline = a no longer kid-friendly event),
drowned ourselves in sugar long past bedtime,
and smiled until cheeks hurt and eyelids fluttered.
On round 362 of rides, I felt that bittersweet flash of what life would be like if Hadley were here, how much she would love this too
but I closed my eyes and smiled because riding a roller coaster in an evening gown and 4 inch heels
is every little girls dream.
