It's that time of year- Hair stylists are up to their elbows in up-do's and manicurists are working the files and pumice stones like nobody's business. (BTW I don't know how manicurists can spend 8 hours a day in the nail salon with that smell- after a few minutes I feel like the chemicals in there have fried half my brain cells. And I really don't have that many to spare.)
Youngest daughter got invited to her first formal. Here she is with her "date," a very nice young man from our church. (I have to put "date" in quotes because I'm just not ready for her to go on a real Date just yet....)
Here she is in her very first really fancy dress. She was the flower girl in my brother's wedding when she was 5. My sister in law even made her fairy wings to match the bridesmaids dresses. Sunrise, sunset.... sniff, sniff.
