Momentous week

/ Friday 1 July 2011 /
Newsflash:  I'm featured today over at Amy's Creative Side!  Go have a look!

This was a very busy week - my daughter graduated from high school and had her grad formal.  As parents of a single child, we are very careful to take full measure of each significant event of our daughter's life.  The ending of her high school years marks a bittersweet milestone.

She really only had one date (the boy to her left) despite what this photo implies:
Eve and her date, et al.
We are very proud of our daughter, an Ontario scholar, off to McGill in August to study Arts.

Congrats on all the milestones Lesly! Having an empty nest is something to get used to, but you do get to sew alot more!

She's gorgeous! Her dress and accessories are the best I've seen on a grad. Stunning!

This has been quite a few weeks for you! Hope you are taking the long weekend off and enjoying it all.

Awww, she's beautiful! Congrats to her and you!

We only have one daughter as well so I know what you mean about cherishing every event.

You have a very lovely daughter! Very classy dress too! Hope she soars when she leaves the nest!

What a lovely way to remember special moments. It's good advice whether you have several kids or no kids at all. Hope you had a great long weekend!

Congratulations on your daughter's graduation! Our youngest graduated high school this year also. Your daughter is lovely, and I also think her dress is great, modest and classy.
