I just came across this picture of my sister Martha Lou and me just before or after our sister Betty Rose’s wedding.
Seeing the picture immediately reminded me of my ever-so-slight slip-up during the wedding which you can read about in this older post, To get to wear a pretty dress, I just have to throw some flower petals around? A piece of cake!
I like to think this picture was taken before the wedding and Mama just had us pose so that she could take a picture of our dresses. But, I’m afraid it may have been taken after the wedding, and ML may be explaining to me why my days as a flower girl were OVER! Unfortunately, my face is blurred so it’s hard to know if it was showing pre-wedding nerves or post-wedding remorse!
Oh well. It was a fun gig while it lasted. Although, in my opinion, there was wayyyy too much supervising and second guessing of the little kid!
But, in the end, it was all worth it because I did get to wear a pretty dress, and I even got paid! Well, not exactly “paid”, but I did get this bracelet, which I still have, that I remember thrilled me.
All things considered, a fun memory.
