I always struggle with personal stuff on here. It’s generally a decorating blog, but… A couple of weeks ago, I took my daughter to her first concert. We literally just walked in the door from Florida, and we were both exhausted. But for Taylor Swift? We pushed through.
I could go on and on about how our girls emulate the wrong images today and how we have to be very careful about what our daughters think is the right way to represent themselves, but let me just say that I couldn’t be more thankful that my little one is a Taylor Swift fan.
I’ve been to a LOT of concerts, so I was a little apprehensive about the other girls my little one might be seeing. We got there, and I was thrilled. No moms trying to look like their teenage daughters (well, that might be an overstatement); no teenagers trying to look like…well, something other than teenagers; no illegal substances pluming through the air.
It was just girls. Girls who are in love with love. Girls who believe they deserve to be treated right. Girls who are empowered by other girls. Alright. I’m getting preachy. I want to share this video of my little one at her first concert and how one brief moment solidified her love for Taylor Swift. Forever.
P.S. Don’t pay any attention to the cackly, overjoyed mom in the background.
