You just can't help it


I had to do it. I just had to. I could see her sweet little dark skinned face and arms against the yellow of the fabric. The dress had Ellie's name written all over it ~ I had to buy it.
There is nothing sweeter than the simplicity of a dress, and I love this one !
I have to share the sweet story that goes along with it.
I was in a store and saw this dress ( that said "buy me! buy me!") there was actually only 2 left and since my dear friend is bringing Abigail home from China I figured both girls would look precious in them. As I'm paying for them somehow it came up that we were adopting from China ( imagine that ) and that the other dress was for a Chinese girl as well. The lady was so moved she told me she would only have me pay for one! God Bless you!!
So now I have visions on Abby and Ellie running around next summer barefoot in their matching dresses..........
So sweet.
