"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~New Dress~

We went into every store that sold dresses looking for a beautiful, modest, age appropriate dress for her to wear to church and for Easter.  We came up empty. We even looked on line for dresses, but it was hard to tell how long they were and very few had sleeves.  Raychel did find one, but it was over $200.  It was a simple looking pattern, I got this crazy idea I could make her a dress.  We headed to the fabric store with the goal not to leave without a pattern and material to create a beautiful dress.  We had success!!  Little did I know that would be the easy part!  The dress wasn't too bad, pretty basic except for the neck line.  It is pretty wide and I wasn't sure how to fix it.  I had a couple of friends help me who had lots more experience them I do.  It turned out perfect, and the best part is, she loves it!! She looks so beautiful in it.  The colors are perfect for her.  Now to find the perfect shoes!!!
