Dressing Up in my Youth
I know I'm wearing a veil, (bottom left) but I remember feeling a little underdressed for my First Communion. All the girls had poofy sleeves and lace and petticoats. My cotton number had ric rac trim.
At my friend Debbie's birthday party, I tried to distract from my Plain Jane look, by covering my eyes with hair and showing the world my 4 missing teeth. Actually I have no idea why I looked like that in that photo. The other kids look mighty swell, though.
So when my daughter's wedding approached, I decided to pick a dress that would fit my 60-year-old-age, while satisfying my 6-year-old self. I didn't have ruffles, but I had a sash and a skirt that swirled... when I danced like a 6-year-old!
Thanks Jamie and Heidi for letting "Mom" be a kid for a moment, at your wonderful wedding! What a fun time!
