The following is post sponsored by the online dress + accessory store

I try hard not to let moments pass me by. Right now we have three potty-training kids. After that it will be three learning to swim (we live in the Great Lakes state, after all - water safety is a must!) then before we know it we will have three in middle school, then learning to drive (Lord, please prepare my heart), then three interested in girl/boyfriends and finding a date for the prom. Me oh my.
Often I'm able to stay in the moment with the kids and "be present", without thinking too far ahead. I often enjoy them while they learn to jump with two feet (Ayara has just mastered this) or repeat lines from a favorite movie like "Scorch me, baby!" (thanks to Escape from Planet Earth). But on occasion I find myself daydreaming about what their futures will hold. Will they learn to ______, will they want to _____. The answer is I don't know.
This past week I found myself thinking about Ayara's wedding. WHAT?! Should she choose one day to get married it could be similar to mine: 2500 miles away from family + friends, in an elegant yet simple dress from the local mall, with only my future-husband and mother present, married at the Justice of the Peace in downtown Reno, NV. OR it could be worlds different: destination location, large crowds to help celebrate, and elaborate gowns for the production of a lifetime. Whatever the case may be her decisions will have my support, and until then it's fun to dream.
In August the boys get their first chance - other than Halloween - to dress up like little gents. They'll be ring-bearing in a wedding for my sweet cousin Quinn and her awesomesauce fiance Josh. When she asked me I burst into the most hilarious laugh/cry I've ever been part of. It was a moment I won't forget for many (some embarrassing) reasons. Luckily for me Ayara will have plenty of opportunities to practice her formalities, too.

For example, Prom. I can envision her wearing something as elegant as these numbers

or, because we fill her world with inspiring prints with sayings like "Don't be like the rest of them, Darling!" she may do just that and choose something wild like this:
