Hand Embroidered and Laced Organza... be still my heart...
It was a pretty wonderful day. We spent the morning (close to two hours) in this store trying on dresses for her First Holy Communion
(I found this later on)
I think it was a special memory for Abigail; just as I wanted it to be. Because I found this too later on...
I love the part where she wrote that we 'ate at a restaurant'. She doesn't even realize that it's not normal to eat a a restaurant and eat out of your thermos. Ordering from a restaurant is just something this little EE girl can not do. And yet 'eating at a restaurant' is still a happy memory for her.
She was beaming after and her big sister was a huge help in deciding on the dress.
Now you know I took a ton of pictures of that dress... especially since we didn't actually bring it home with us. It's being shipped to us when it's ready. Somehow I can't bring myself to post them all here. I just want to keep that to myself until the big day in May but in case you wanted a seek peek... here's her dress.
Her teeny, tiny features, her strawberry waves, all of it...just perfect inside this dress. I know, I know it's not about the dress. Believe me I can separate the two when it comes down to that 'day'. But for all of you that know me 'childrens clothing' is one of my hobbies. And picking out a First Communion dress.. well that's just about heaven to me.
