Happy Monday dear friends~how was your weekend? Ours was very nice; Saturday our granddaughters were here for the day and it was such fun! Yesterday hubby and I went on our search for things to wear for our Victorian dinner in Feb. I found a burgundy velvet jacket to wear with a long black dress and once I add some lace it will be perfect. Hubby did find a jacket at a costume store that will work; now that we have some things lined up we can relax and just enjoy the party. I will say though that this has brought up a topic of conversation with our youngest daughter because back when she was in high school she had a dark green Victorian style dress with velvet collar and matching boots but being the woman she is, she gave it away because she didn't have a need for it. Our other daughter however saved all her formal dresses in case she had daughters and they wanted dress up clothes. Such a contrast in personalities and we cherish each daughter. I've done things like this before; in fact after I had children I gave away many of my preschool resource books not realizing that down the road I would go back into teaching. So it made me wonder how does one know what to get rid of and what to put away for another day? When we moved I also gave away several costumes that might have come in handy at a later date. I did keep tons and tons of costume jewelry for my granddaughters though.
Hubby and I are finally feeling like we've beat this nasty cold bug-hopefully it will be the only one this year.
Have a warm and wonderful day and smile-the world will look better.
