Saturday, February 13, the Decatur Junior Woman’s Club is hosting a Daddy Daughter Dance at the Multi-Purpose Building in Decatur from 6-8 pm.  The cost is $25 a couple, and $5 for each additional sibling.  Other perks include professional photographs, Valentine snacks, raffle items, and door prizes.  Forms are available around Decatur, specifically at ICopy (in the Prada Shops) and the What Not Shop (on the square).  Pre-registration ends February 5th, so register early.  Proceeds benefit local charities including:  WARM, CASA, Wise Choices Pregnancy Resource Center, and Wise County Christian Counseling.

I have to admit, when my daughter attended her first Daddy Daughter Dance, I was looking forward to the event, but I didn’t realize the impact it would make on her.  She was only five, but remembers every detail of the night to this day.  She told me she felt like a princess, and that the night was like “real magic.”  Last year, we splurged and got her hair done fancy and sparkly before her REAL DATE with her Dad-dinner and everything.  While we try to make that special one-on-one time throughout the year, there is just something very unique about this one night of dancing and dresses that is dynamic.  And, let’s not forget the “real live magic-”always a plus.
