In November, Sophia and I danced in the Ohio Star Ball. Sophia placed 5th in the World Pro Am Bronze Rhythm Final and also made the semi final round in her smooth division.
On our first day in Ohio, we had dinner with Natasha Isacs and Gregory Day. There wasn't a lot of free time in our schedule, but it was great to see old friends, and having just a little time to make new ones.
Between dancing, Sophia got to spend several hours in the vending room for dress shopping with friends Christjohn Batters and Mona Maers. Christjohn has a special talent for spotting dresses that are in need of adoption/ loving owners. The Emil Booth became a campsite as we spent a great many (enjoyable) hours of plying dress up with Sophia and Mona.
Zelda arrived towards the end of our Ohio week with our dear friend, Anna Kabul. This girls arrived strictly for dress shopping and spectating. We had a wonderful week and we were all left very thankfully to Sam Sadano, who took time to meet and greet with us during our stay.
