a little chair, a little dress

heirloom.

such a brilliant word with significant meaning.

here is a chair. this was my husband’s chair as a child. before him, it was his father’s chair. now, it is joey’s chair. it is special. thank you nana for always finding meaning in every little detail. while to some this is just a chair, to me it is a throne of gentleness and greatness. may the legacy of the men that have sat in this little chair live on for many more life-times.

the baby also has her own heirloom.

a little dress. this was worn by my sister, and by me at each of our dedications. the baby wore this at her dedication. thank you mum for your thoughtfulness, for keeping the significant things, and for making whites white ! may this baby be as beautiful and intelligent as you.
