I have an assortment of my mom's brooches that I've never worn but I would never give away nor sell either.
It is enough for me to remember the times my Dad gave her a brooch or took us to town to buy her a brooch. This one has intrigued me over the years. It doesn't seem at all like something she would have selected herself.
Her style was rings of tiny pearls and shiny semi precious stones.
A month ago I was shopping with Kathy on the sale rack at Macy's.
We tried on everything we thought we'd like. .
and everything each other thought we should like.
This $19 tax included dress came home with me.
As soon as I tried it on. .
the brooch came to mind.
I took a picture the next day to email Kathy to get a girl friends approval.
Being the kind of girl she is ...
she gave me sweet affirmation and I wore it to the wedding a few weekends ago.
Two things here ...
My mom would have never worn a zebra print dress ..
or would she have?
I may have been surprised to learn that I didn't know everything about my mother.
Mom's can be like that you know. .
a little mystery left undisclosed is a good thing.
The second thing. . .
everyone needs a girlfriend to be honest in the change room.
I'm glad I have mine.
