My Heart is Calling/Following

I am not Maggie: She’s been extra busy this last week with finals and whatnot, so I’m taking over for right now, with super exciting things to talk about, of course! Last weekend was Prom, and luckily for me, Maggie was able to fly back from college to go with me.

Although that may seem silly, it truly did mean a lot to have her here, and though it was “just a dance” it was my senior prom, so having there was the best. Before the dance though, we went out for dinner, r…breakfast, because, at least to us, nothing says classy like formalwear at Shari’s. It was so weird though, having made it to a repeat of a dance as a couple. It’s not something that we necessarily expected last year, and making it to this point is incredible. Not only that, but everything about this year was so different. Rather than the nervous “first date” of last year, this year we knew each other, we knew we liked each other, and we were already together, so most of the awkwardness (and we weren’t with even more awkward couples) was circumvented. Plus, we completely avoided other people; we don't dislike them, but it was nice to spend a night alone, especially when we haven’t had many lately.


Anyways, I don’t have tons to say tonight, besides how incredible that night was, and how incredible it is that we’re “officially” done with long distance: Maggie is finished with school for the year, and we’ll never have to be apart like this again. It’s an amazing feeling, to say the least.


This picture (the one above) and the other picture (the one below) are actually some of my favorites from the night, I love the light and the detail and all that good stuff.


P.S. Maggie's dress was from Modcloth

And...this is what I wore (I'm sure you were all dying to know)


Oh, and side note, this couple-y picture of us was taken by my dad. Needless to say, I don't particularly taking the wedding photos. They turned out so weird, if you ask me. Picture styles definitely aren't genetic.



Maggie will be back soon, I promise!
