About ten years ago I was in a wedding. My MJ married her tall boyfriend and she asked me take part of the wedding a few shorts months after Lovely O was born. I still have the dress.
Or I did.
I was cleaning out my closet and the dress was still hanging up in its plastic bag. It was sort of sad because I didn't want to add it to the Goodwill pile yet I knew that I'd never have any reason to wear it again.
I hung it back up and thought on it.
Thought on it a bit more.
THEN I cut it up.
BUT then I made something beautiful out of those pieces and I am giving it to the bride as a keepsake of her special day. Something that she may even want to give to her daughter when she gets older.
