I did a last "walk through" of the house to make sure my parents weren't purging anything I wanted. Mostly, I left with some of my mom's clothes. That hat? That's my mom's hat. She bought it for a wedding many, many years ago, and I pretty much love it.
I paired it with a maxi-skirt, brown cardigan and flats in a look I like to describe as "late winter staring at spring." The daffodils are out, people! It is happening! Eventually!
And by the time spring is sincerely here, my parents will be in their new home, and we'll start making new memories. I know so many people who are moving and getting married and changing their lives in dramatic ways. And, hey, we're having a baby so that's going to totally explode our lives too! Change is upon us. Might as well move forward.
