OK, That's out of the way...
I'm back in Cincy after a great trip. On my birthday, I escorted my Mom to the Senior Prom. It was an honor. She had never been to a prom, so I hope we did it up right! I was going to spike the punch, but decided it may screw up everyone's meds...As most of you know, both my Parent's have been struggling with many health issues. I never expected my Mom to walk again after her last stroke, but with a huge community of helpers and much work on her part, she walked into the prom all by herself! She was so excited to go and there was no other place on earth I would rather have spent my birthday. She was my official prom queen. Of course, there had to be corsages ;)
And lots of laughs!
The event was hosted by the Medco Senior Center, Morganfield, Ky.
A live bluegrass band, orange punch, great eats and lots of love!
This is one of the reasons Mom is doing so well. My dear friend, S, who works at the Senior facility Mom stayed at. We grew up together and throughout this experience, we have been reunited. She has continued to do therapy with Mom even after she was sent home. It has made all the difference. If ya don't use it....
And, She was rockin' her prom dress!
I chose a dress my Mom really liked. Since it was her day, I dismissed my original attire, which consisted of a vintage hat, pearls... (You get the idea). She chose a lace top and watercolor skirt. We both were pretty coordinated. My corsage was a wrist one, but it broke before I could wear it, so it got pinned on. Better for photos anyway! Yes, I lugged my giant camera bag with me. I gotta do something about that...
Dress: Goody's // Shoes: Gabriel Bros. both retail/on sale
It was freaking HOT that day!!! I was
sweating glistening like a pig.
Though, do they
sweat glisten? I've never seen it...
From Formals to Overalls! My kind of party!
All the ladies were beautiful....
We were home by midnight. Well, actually 5:30pm...

Thanks Mom. For having me. For loving me.
Have a loving weekend everyone!
