Spring means Prom Time. My niece, Laura attended her last prom as a highschooler. She will be graduating on May 27th. I am not sure how that happened as it seems she was just born several years ago! I thought you might enjoy seeing some of her pictures.
I cannot write this post without adding my own two cents worth. Back when I was in high school, I never considered going to the prom because my parents thought prom was a slippery slope to a life of dancing and card playing! Mother and Daddy were very conservative. High school was pretty much a wash out. I was on the nerdy side and I spent most of my time flying below the radar, not wanting to draw attention to myself. Except for the friendships I had with several girls who are still friends, high school was just a stepping stone to moving on the college, or for me, nursing school. I never will forget the first time I took the bus downtown in Atlanta with some friends. When we got off the bus on Peachtree Street, I thought to myself, "Now this is where I want to be!!" I loved the energy of Atlanta back in the 70s. It was quite different for this little country girl who was born and raised 90 miles up the road but it might as well have been on another planet!
I still love Atlanta. I would not want to live there but visiting is fun. And I have a new appreciation for where I grew up. There is a lot to be said for both places. We truly are a sum of all our experiences.
