Weekly Winners {MAKfest09 Edition, Part II)

Some of the best memories I have are of being a Macedonian folk dancer.  I danced from the ages of 5-18, and it’s an experience I will always treasure.  Watching these “older” groups really made me wax nostalgic.

Then last night I had the pleasure of being at a “Girl’s Night Out” with some old friends from our church.  We sat around telling stories of our old hall and the times that have passed us by which have led us to now.  It was wonderful.  There was laughter.  There was great food.  There was wine.  There was a sense of calm, as well.  I was honored to be a part of it.   I felt aged, but in a good way.

Looking at these pictures of the dancers just makes me wish for those feelings of butterflies in the belly just before the music started.  The glances that would be passed to the other dancers are etched in my brain and carried in my heart.  Though time changes us, makes us part, or brings us back together, I will always have those special moments.

Weekly Winners {MAKfest09 Edition, Part I}

These are all from Friday night at the 19th Annual Macedonian Festival, here at our home church.

I would love to put all of them up here, but can’t possibly.  I suggest you visit my Flickr to see them all.

Part II (Sunday) will be coming up soon.
