there once was this super sweet lady who gave my baby daughter a pearl bracelet before she was born. her baby girls always wear them and look so pretty.

my baby daughter wore the bracelet for dedications and baptisms and her aunt's wedding.

she tried to wear it for her uncle's wedding last weekend, but it doesn't fit her fat little wrist anymore!

i wonder if that super sweet lady has any pearl bracelets her little girls have grown out of...

oh, how i wonder.

it's an especially significant wonder since i'm going to be near this super sweet lady as early as, oh, TONIGHT!

p.s. i'll buy 'em from you..

Hey Seph - Sorry I wasn't able to get Miss Ellie any bracelets this weekend. We had a LOT going on (hence my not so pleasant personality at church too), plus I haven't ordered any pearls in quite awhile. Usually when my girls outgrow something, I just remake it in a bigger size.

I have had several people ask me about bracelets lately so I'll see what I can do soon (as in after the retreat is over). I can't promise anything though as it seems life will not be slowing down, but only getting much busier over the next couple of months.

It was good to get to see you and that sweet baby over the weekend, even if it was just a couple of moments. I love all her squeezy rolls! Wouldn't it be great if people oohed and awed over our grown-up rolls???
