The graduation dresses have been out since Easter but it just hit me the other day… another wonderful group of teenagers (and yes College / University students too) are about to enter “the real world”.
I remember getting ready with great nervousness and anticipation for the big High School grad party, all dolled up in shiny Forest Green taffeta… long sleeves with a big poof at the shoulders. I even had my shoes died Forest Green to match. My hair was curled and pulled into a side ponytail…. it was all the rage back then! It took me a long time to get all done up that night. I must have spent the entire day making sure I looked good, from head to toe.
The picture below is from a friend’s graduation ceremony, I got all dazzled up for these boys… 🙂 I’d say this would have been around 1988 or 1989. Yes, that’s me in the middle…
|oh to be 16 again…|
So back to June of 1990… the limo pulled up, we all piled in. First to a backyard party a friend’s parents were hosting and then onto the big city of Vancouver for a dinner and dance.
We felt so grown up!
It’s hard to believe that was 23 years ago. Oy! Where has the time gone?
