Here's my sweetie on her Baptism Day, in the arms of her Godfather Eddy.
She arrived Mary Poppins style...
bags overflowing with tutus,
and an antique buggy,
all for an hour and a half long (at least!) photo shoot with my girls...
they laughed and played dress-up all through the yard,
and then came in from the heat to cuddle.
Izzy brought out her special China storybook and read it to Auntie Trish,
One day is never enough to be together...
She is my kindred spirit,
met at a neighborhood crop,
and she moved away a year later.
I miss her every day.
We scrounged at Goodwill together too,
and did quite well....
Can't wait to do it again.....
p.s. The chair....is in our living room near the canoe window seat. I found it while out for a run...popped into a furniture store here in town. I overheard a man saying to his wife, "That is the ugliest chair I have ever seen." I was thrilled...as it had my name all over it. We got it for a steal, as apparently everyone else thought it was the ugliest chair too. Down filled Woolrich cushions and leather arms...so comfy...and it works in this room....
