Can a kid catch a break here?!

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.

My name was engraved on the front and the date of the wedding was engraved on the back.

I think this picture was taken right before the wedding, so apparently they gave me the bracelet to wear in the wedding.  Lucky for me it wasn’t awarded later, based on performance!

All things considered, a fun memory.

    I really enjoyed this post Aunt Sandy! I’m sentimental about some things too and the fact that you still have that bracelet is amazing! It makes me feel like I’m not alone in keeping treasured items. 😀

    Beth — I’m tickled that you’re tickled! 🙂

    Julie — Any “club” I’m in with you is a nice club to be in. 🙂 I didn’t save many “treasures” so the ones I do have are very special to me. Love, Aunt Sandy

    What a treasure, Sandra, both the bracelet and photos. I’m skipping over now to read the older post. C

    What a wonderful memory. Great that you still have the bracelet!

    C — I can’t tell you how much fun I’m having telling stories about my mother’s old pictures! Thanks for enjoying them with me! 🙂

    Margaret — It is a little remarkable that I still have the bracelet, because I’m not particularly good at keeping “keepsakes”. I am glad I still have it.
