Montana Weekend

Along the side of the freeway
Micro braids
For me?
Happy girls
Silly girls
Papa sure has big shoes!
Meskerem's first Shirley Temple
Kidist's first Shirley Temple. The cherry was their favorite part. Come to think of it, it's still my favorite part as well.

Birthday Memento

My brother and sister-in-law sent me a box of memories for my birthday this year. I pulled this out and couldn't quite figure it out. It's my mom's first initial and her last name. I asked my friend Wanda about it since she's worked in hospitals for a long time. Wanda: "What color is it?" Me: "Pink and white" Wanda: "Is it big or small?" Me: "Very small" Wanda: "It's the bracelet they put on you in the nursery so they'd know you belong to your mommy". Wow. I have to admit that gave me goosebumps and made me tear up over the significance of it. My mother passed away a number of years ago so I'm so grateful to have this special tangible memento.
