Friday night Josh and I got to go to a black tie event for The Children's Center. I have a special place in my heart for The Children's Center. It is one of the charities I worked with in 2008 as Mrs. Utah (little known fact huh?). It was wonderful for me to have the opportunity to see a few of the people I knew back in the day and see how The Children's Center has grown.
Once upon a time I frequently went to black tie events, but for the last few years they have been pretty sparse (or non existent). I was so excited to get the chance to dress up.
I designed and had this dress made for the night I passed on my crown. It is such a wonderful memory to me. You can see a little of it here. I decided it would be just the gown to wear that night. I love how the skirt of the dress swishes when I walk. I loved wearing this gown again.
We just took a couple of quick pictures (including an Instagram) before we headed off the the gala. It was such a lovely evening.
