The Last Dance {PROM 2015}

Last Saturday, I met with a good friend of mine, Alex, at the local coffee shop to catch-up on some lost time.  We are both going through our Senior year of high school, so the main topic of our conversation was about the last few weeks left before graduation.  After listening to me go on and on about how ready I am for the next chapter of my life to begin, he simply said to me, "I don't understand why everyone is so eager to grow up.  These are the final weeks of our childhood before we hold complete responsibility for ourselves.  These are the days that we will never get back, so why count them down?"

I never really thought about it that way, but he's right--these are days that we will never get to live again.  With this new perspective in mind, I now see the last major events of my high school days (such as Senior Prom, Senior events and activities, my 18th birthday, including the dreaded finals ) not as marks until the end, but rather moments that build the end.

Here is a tribute to my last high school dance and to all who made my Senior Prom the unforgettable night that it was.  Thank you to my fun-loving, charismatic date for giving me a night full of laughter.  Thank you to Tierney and the LuLu*s team for making me feel absolutely stunning and dressed to the nines (or in other words, #LuLusPartyPerfect). Thank you to my loving mother for taking time out of her Mother's Day weekend to capture the bittersweet memories.  And this post goes to my friend, Alex.  Thank you for reminding me to embrace these last couple of weeks of high school before they're gone.
