This little Janie and Jack dress has been hanging on the wall in Alexa's room for a few months because it's so pretty. I've been looking at it daily and not thinking about it much, but then I had a panic attack. OMG, did Alexa outgrow this beauty while it was hanging on the wall? I tore it down and my heart sunk to find that it was 3-6 months, exactly the size she's growing OUT of. Crossing my fingers, I put it over her head, and voila! It fits, with room to spare. Such a gorgeous color. Maybe a little dressy for our leisurely day of coffee, ocean and thrifting (hello, we like Saturday routines around here), but it's better to be overdressed than underdressed, right?
I have loads of necklaces and other jewelry that was given to me after my mom died, and most of that jewelry includes pieces my mom inherited after my grandma died. This necklace is one. It's gorgeous. I wish I knew the story behind it. This curiosity is happening to me more and more often. But everyone who knows the story is gone.
On a lighter note, H's birthday is Monday so we celebrated with a low-key day this weekend, finishing with a dinner of salmon, potatoes and kale that I prepared. I think he enjoyed it. It's a far cry from the all-day affairs I used to plan or the parties I used to throw, but whatchagonnado? We have a baby now!
P.S. Happy birthday to my brother, too, who turned 29 on Friday. All these Leos in my family. So much drama. Just kidding, guys.
