Magic moments part 2 (a trilogy)

This week was prom week and I think I was a little unprepared for how much is involved in such an event! The dress, the hair, the nails, the limo - wow, it was like getting my girl ready for the Oscars! And I have to say (although I may be a little bit biased) when she was finished, she looked like she was going to the Oscars - she looked BEAUTIFUL.

Jess' date for the night was a boy from her drama class called Stephen. They are just friends and I think it was nice to have someone she could be herself with at her side. He's such a lovely boy, he even matched his shirt and tie with Jess' dress so that they looked perfect together!

With Chris being away in the UK things weren't quite as easy to organise and when I took them to a friends' house to get the limo we had to squeeze Stephen (who's about 6 foot) in the back of the car between Max and Eva as I had no one to watch them - it kinda cramped their style, but they dealt with it very well!

She had a great night and it's a lovely memory for her to take back to the UK in 6 weeks.

So, now prom is over and it's exam week (she's studying as I speak) next stop graduation. I think leaving Canada after 4 years will be hard for Jess. She has made some great friends and will have some wonderful memories. But come September she will be at University back home, living on campus and starting the next chapter of her life.

I'm really going to miss her.
