20 years ago I took a smocking course at a local sewing store. At the time I made a dress and bonnet and dreamed of the little girl – my little girl - my daughter – who would wear it one day.
I must admit to being a little teary eyed when I dressed Hannah for church on Sunday. The little dress that had hung in my closet for years and then in Hannah’s closet for the past 5+ years was now being worn by her – and she loved it! We’re currently reading ‘Little House on the Prairie’ so she was excited to be dressed like Mary and Laura. When we had a little photo shoot at Nana and Papa’s she even wanted to wear the bonnet.
*sigh* Wasn’t it just yesterday that I dressed her in adorable little bonnets all the time? She’s growing up far too quickly! I’m so thankful she was able to wear this dress before she outgrew it!
