Happy Valentines Day

Jamie and I had a fun night full of surprises.  We had a 5:15 reservation at Parish Foods and Goods, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta.  Then he told me we had a friend give us an early wedding present, which happened to be tickets to Cirque du Soleil's Kooza!  It was phenomenal!  I had no idea people would be willing to do some of the things they did, much less that their bodies were able to do some of the things they did.  

I don't think there was one aspect of it that I didn't like - from contortionists whose bodies were as strong and flexible as a rubberband to people doing triple shoulder stands while balancing on a ball to a soundtrack provided by a singer with an eerily beautiful voice to a unicyclist throwing a woman around while he's pedaling!  But I think my favorite was what they call the "Wheel of Death."  You have to go check it out yourself, but below is a picture from a rehearsal.
