Tonight I would like to illustrate a story

Last weekend was a pretty special weekend for my lovely mother. She had her 30 year class reunion! For some reason I felt like I was sending my mother off to prom or something, and I was all about taking pictures. The weekend before, we went to pick out a dress, so I was excited to see her wear it.

First, of course, she had to get her hair and makeup all fancy-like. She wasn't excited about me squeezing in the bathroom with her to take the pictures. Sorry, mom!

Yes, that's me in the mirror...looking GREAT in my workout gear (that's sarcasm in case you didn't catch that).  I never realized how wrong I hold my camera. Seriously, that looks awful.

Lotion on the legs, dress and jewelry on, shoes on the feet...time to take pictures! Why won't mothers smile? Ok, some mothers smile, but mine won't! She just bends her mouth up the slightest bit...but no teeth. Come on, mom! I think she's still getting used to the fact that her daughter sticks a camera in her face all the time.

I think her outfit looked gorgeous. That dress was super flattering on her, and I know she was the most gorgeous woman there! I picked out her bracelets and earrings. I wanted to keep it pretty minimal since she was going to her 30 year reunion (not 10 year...ya know?). Anyway, you looked great mom!

Have fun, mom!

Thanks for reading/looking at my story. I enjoyed helping her get ready, and I know she had a great time at her reunion. I hope I look that good at my 30 year reunion!
