On November 1st, I attended The Orange & Black Masquerade Ball at the Tennessee Theatre. It was a blast and I hope to attend next year as well. After the Ball, the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra played exerts from "The Phantom of the Opera,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Mephistopheles,” among others. It was fun coming up with an outfit to wear that only used black and orange and creating a mask.
Then, on November 12th we welcomed Andrew Parker Snow into the world! My step-sister Buffy, her husband Justin, and their daughter Madelyn were thrilled! I can already tell she will be a great big sister.
