Mother of the Bride: What a Time to Love a Dress


Laura and Kitty

The wedding dress has been selected, and so has the mother of the bride dress! A poem, written by me, in honor of the shopping and the dresses and both of us:

What a time

To be a mom.

What a time

To love a dress.

Her dress,

My dress,

We chose them both


Just like playing dress ups


What a time,

Not so many years ago.
