It is spring picture day for Sara—last school picture of Middle School!! It’s so bittersweet. She is growing into a beautiful, bright, enigmatic young lady right before my eyes. It seems like just yesterday, I was picking her clothes out for her but even as a small child she definitely had her opinions on style. She has always been a “comfy” girl fighting against anything that “looks nice”.
But today I didn't have to beg her to wear something other than her usual volleyball tshirt. She didn't even ask for my help in picking something out. She emerged from her room this morning looking beautiful with her own style definitely showing. I think she is finally starting to become comfortable in her own skin—no longer feeling a need to hide under tshirts and jeans. She’s starting to be her own person and stand out in her own way. I love her so much!!
