I'm headed back to my alma mater's Prom this weekend! But this time around, almost 10 years to the day later, I'm acting as one of the teacher chaperones. I'm really excited to see my kids all dressed up and looking fancy on one of the most special nights of their lives thus far. Seeing their happiness makes me happy and very sentimental--I only have a few short weeks left with my seniors, and while I know they're ready for the "real world," I'm not quite ready for some of them to leave. : ( It's bittersweet event that happens every year.
Anyhoo, I'll leave you with a classic Prom pic of me and my best friend, Emily. Oh, how all of my friends teased me about my bangs---I did finally grow them out only to cut sideswept bangs quickly thereafter!
