A new friend has come to live with us.
I've not yet introduced her to Marin.
Something about introducing a head to a body seems...awkward.
Anyway, the reason I got her is because a few months ago I found my wedding dress in the bottom of my parents' cedar chest, so I brought it home.
My wedding dress was also my mother's dress.
I loved it my whole life. There was never any question that I wouldn't wear it.
My super talented sister altered it when the time came, and I hope that maybe one of my girls will wear it someday too.
Until then it seemed like it should have a special spot. Remember how we discussed not keeping our treasures hidden away where we can't enjoy them?
Happy Mother's Day to my sweet mom and to my lovely mother-in-law. I am blessed by you both and so many other amazing mothers who have mentored me and hung out with me and taught me so much about mothering.
I wish you all a very special weekend.
