My Dress = Her Dress

Going through some of my mom's thing I found one of my baby dresses (one of the only ones saved). It was in perfect condition and had my monogram cross stitched on it. I had never seen a picture of me wearing it and wondered where it came from. I would have loved to talk to mom about it.

I did find out that my aunt had given it as a gift and hand cross stitched it special! I was anxious to know if it would fit Anna Ruth with the right season. And, sure enough it would! I had Lo take out the stitch and took it to get the new monogram. 

On Friday, I went to pick it up from the shop. When they brought it out I almost started to cry. I began talking with the lady and she said she would bet my mom would be excited to see it. Well, I started crying then and so did she,ha! We were both a mess and all over this sweet little dress. 

"Things" in this life certainly do not matter but sometimes they can make you smile. And I know I was grinning big when I put this dress on Anna Ruth.
