Magic In a Dress || Sunday Swoon

This time of year always makes me nostalgic.  We unpack handmade nursery school ornaments, and the children sing carols while decorating the tree.  The imperfections that mesh together real-life Christmas in our home are incredibly special.  The sort of special that makes me weepy.

Time passage.  It’s mind boggling.

As in every year, we quickly de-Christmased to mark the birthday of our big girl. Seven whole years this time around.  My goodness. Five years ago, on her second birthday, I’ll never forgot how she cried when it was time to take off her party dress.  So much has changed as she is truly coming into her own – but she still very much holds onto her love of dresses.  She finds joy in a twirl and brings creativity to dress up.

I think it’s magic.

Pippa and Julie dresses

She was completely smitten when a beautiful box of dresses arrived from Pippa & Julie – a New York-based girlswear line designed and owned by a mother-daughter duo.  Perfect for twirling, special outings – and being seven (seven!).
