This Dress

miss-a-fence

Taken on big sister’s birthday, June 6, by my mother-in-law, Mimi. (Notice the one sock.)

I remember this dress.

This dress is the one your sister wore a few years ago. It was a present from Grandma.

This dress has the cute hemline that begs to be twirled in while barefoot in the backyard. I found it in the attic a few weeks ago in storage tossed in with some of her other outgrown cotton t-shirts and play shorts from the summer your sister turned 4.

You were so excited to try on this dress when I showed it to you. It’s your favorite now, this dress, you tell me.

This dress I will remember. It’s my favorite now.

    Thanks ya’ll. I did a little retouch magic on Picnik.com to make it look somewhat “antiquey.” (very accurate term…heh!)

    I love that! I do that with the boys. I had a favorite outfit with Sean that I later used again with Brady. it’s one of the few outfits that I kept when all was said an done, as a reminder of them as little people.
