It’s time for high school Prom. Three years ago our daughter Tory and her three besties were prepping for their big night. The process sure was different from mine back in the day.
Tory wanted a prom dress that was unique,, that she wouldn’t see anyone else wearing at her prom. I agreed, knowing that the hunt for the perfect gown would be loads of fun! Soooo, we drove more than two hours to well-known pageant gown retailer Jay West for a look see. Tory fell in love with a dress that suited her personality perfectly. We put down the deposit and started the hunt for the perfect shoes, purse and jewelry to complement the colorful gown.
As the weeks and months went by Tory and her friends shopped for the perfect accessories to complement their gowns. I loved to listen to them debate the merits of one shoe over another! Because, yeah, I’m a shoe freak. And the selection wasn’t anywhere near as delightful when I was looking for my prom shoes. I was living vicariously with no harm, no foul!
The day of the prom arrived. The young women scattered for hair and nail appointments, then reconvened in our backyard for their official pre-Prom photo shoot. This Mom was the official photographer.
What do you remember about your prom? What did you wear?
