"The Day Has Arrived"

An accumulation of dreams, goals and hard work has brought us to this day. Every girl dreams of their highschool graduation. Next to their wedding day, this is their most important day. Where have the years gone? It was just yesterday (so it seemed) that I was up every night rocking my colicky newborn, and now here she is ready for her senior "prom". You know it's funny, the day was so busy with getting ready, doing last minute things, (sewing part of her dress. I'm not joking, either... just a small seam.) company, hair...hair...hair...and more hair, that I didn't have time to let the emotions out. I find as I am typing now, the emotions are happening. She was glowing on Saturday and I will have many pictures and layouts to do as Denise took over 200 pictures, most of which turned out.
Okay everyone, here is a full length shot of Rachel's dress. It's not a close up, but it's all I have right now for a full length. There will be more later. Those "pickle stabber" shoes were cute and Denise got a picture of those. They have gathers on them kinda like her dress.
