It's amazing how transforming the Prom can be.
First there's the prep hoopla. It helps to have a super expert friend who can do amazing things when your mother has never been very expert.
You start to see your own reflection in her ... just a little bit ... cuz you were just her age doing the very same things.
Then you see the whole stunning package and it's little pieces of all the women you are related to rolled into one perfect picture.
She wears one priceless accessory and it's infectious.
(Thank you, Jakob, for treating her to an amazing evening!)
And just like that, she's a little more transformed then you ever thought you'd like to see.
