Making Memories

Today I donated my wedding dress (pictured, though that is not me wearing it :) to the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation. Just placed it in a box along with my shoes, my veil, some undergarments, my mom's mother-of-the-bride dress, and her veil, circa 1970.

Although I think it's cool that my aunt has her 25-year old wedding dress and my mother-in-law has her 50-year old wedding dress (that she sewed herself), I just can't bring myself to let my beautiful dress spend the rest of its useful life hanging on the back of the closet door. So, faithful flygal that I am, I flung it, ever so gently, off to a more useful existence.
