Today I was just out and about enjoying my Sunday. I was wearing my new neon jacket, a week earlier than I actually planned. But like more of you out there, I just can’t help myself. I can’t buy something and not wear it immediately. So while I planned to save it until next Sunday when my father turns 65 and we have a party to celebrate (more of that later) I failed again. I’t reminded me of my first Communion. My mother and I bought my dress and shoes weeks before the actual date and it drove me crazy. I wanted to wear that white dress and shoes (with a little heel, can you imagine, I was in love) so much that I almost begged my mother almost every night to let me try it on. And so many years later nothing has changed. Hopefully I’ll wear this jacket just a much as I did that dress.
