I just saw this post, and it touched my heart so much I just had to share!! 💓This picture was taken a few seconds before the new Miss Tennessee Teen USA was announced, and in that moment I truly would’ve been happy with either result. I’ve known Elizabeth Graham @elizabeth_graham for about 3 years now (but it honestly feels like a lifetime), and I could not have been more honored to be standing with her as the final 2. 🤗What many people who aren’t involved in pageantry don’t see is the very real sisterhood that is formed between pageant girls. 👑They are some of my best friends, and our bond is absolutely unbreakable. 💪🏼I love them endlessly, and this is the kind of friendship that exceeds far beyond pageant weekend. These are friendships that will last a lifetime, and I’m so unbelievably thankful to pageants for providing me with that!! 💝

Before I post about this past weekend at @greenwoodproductions pageants, I want to share this very touching picture of two of my clients.
You see, in this "final two" moment, these two exceptional teens were holding on to one another feeling an indescribable adrenaline rush. I know, having been in this position twice myself, (TN MAO and TN USA) that a million things are spiraling through the mind, most of which becomes a blur. But one thing is loud and clear, you are hoping your name is called.
So why is this picture so awesome?
It's very special because @baileygg22 and @elizabeth_graham were going to be GENUINELY happy for whomever was chosen as #misstnteenusa.
I know this because each and every time I meet with them, I see why they TRULY do pageants. Yes, prize packages and spotlights are great, but the gift of time well spent in service to others is the best "award." I'm proud to say that these two give back more than they get every day.
Bailey and Elizabeth Graham, thank you for showing #pageantland that friendly competition is possible♡ #eskewconsulting #staytruetoyou #giveitallyougot
