She went with her best guy friend, they have been very close since they were young kids.
Isn't her dress absolutely beautiful?
All of the girls looked lovely.
I have to admit this was cute just with a few extra girls added to the picture, ha!
I was lucky enough to jump in for a quick picture while they were having pictures made and then later on that night at the actual formal.
That is all of the pictures, hope you didn't get bored with all of them. That actually isn't even half of them I think I made around 350 total.
Mady is such a kind and caring young girl. She loves to keep it classy and to do the right thing, which is what I hope she continues to do. We aren't that close in age but we still get along pretty easily and can fit in the same size clothes, so it's like we are double the clothes...I'm not complaining.
With all this being said I feel as if I should give her advice and prepare her for what is coming up with each stage of life/high school. We have gotten a lot closer over the past few years and I am grateful for her friendship and our talks.
Mady and I were talking the other day and she and a very close of friend of hers didn't see eye to eye on something and they got into a pretty big argument. It was over something silly and something Mady had no control over. She let me read some of the messages her friend sent her and to be honest they were just rude and mean. No one should talk like that to other people and certainly not to their "friend". Mady was pretty upset over the whole situation and I was heartbroken for her because I know what it's like to have a close friend turn on you over something so silly and small. She and this friend had been very close since they were in about 4th grade or so.
All of this made me think of this quote I found on Pinterest
How true is that? It kinda just slaps you in the face doesn't it?
This shouldn't be only for girls but for everyone. Life can be complicated enough already without anyone helping. So why add to that when we know ourselves how hard life can be? It doesn't help that all the social media is geared towards actions such as this, like Mean Girls and such.
Mady hasn't said much about the girl but I do know they aren't very close anymore and I hate that a friendship was lost over something so silly and small, but she has a big heart and an open mind so hopefully they can work though everything and come out closer than before.
Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you have a wonderful week!
