Graduation…Mommy’s Piggy Tales #14

This was the year I realized that it was okay to be me. I stopped being ashamed of the fact that I love Buffy. I stopped worrying about what everyone thought of my clothes or my hair. This resulted in some pretty fabulous ensembles & pink hair. Yep, pink. My hair has also been black, blonde, brown, red & most other fun colors like that. I had great friends & a lot of fun this year, but I was ready for high school to be over.
I didn’t go to my Senior Homecoming. I was at my Senior Prom for about 20 minutes – just long enough to see the most fabulous people win for king & queen! You know how normally it’s the popular kids that just get picked for all those things & they win every year – yeah that’s not what happened my senior prom. It was awesome & I loved it!
This was also the year I met my husband. (The picture above is me & a friend, not me & Lewis.) Our anniversary is coming up in October & I’ve got something planned to share more about how we met, but basically some friends of mine from high school introduced me to him. We went on a date in April of my Senior year of high school. We didn’t actually start dating until August after I graduated.
Overall high school wasn’t that great for me – especially seeing how life got after I graduated. Things were harder in a lot of ways, but I found myself after high school & I discovered friendships that were stronger than a lot of things I know & I experienced things I never thought I’d get to experience. High school was necessary, but by no means was it the best years of my life.
