Graduation Part 1

I started looking for the perfect dress back in the winter.

There was something about this one that was so Anna.

The lace overlay was just beautiful. Classic and a bit vintage.

She loves white and cream.

And with her long dark hair I couldn't agree more.

There were really two graduations from elementary school. This one was last week at night.

There were no siblings or grandparents allowed so my mom stayed with Abigail. They did puzzles, played dolls, a mermaid game and grandma gave her a bath. And we had a special night just the three of us.

Watching her with a friend.

Listening to her amazing teacher speak...

Watching her line up

This young girl certainly has given us some very special nights this spring.

Each one a memory to tuck away and save forever.

I'm not quite sure how she went from the little girl in the mirror to the one looking in... but she did. I'm just so grateful that I had a front row seat to watch her her bloom and grow over the past six years.
