“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
How often do I say I want to freeze time. Once a week? Everyday? All the time?
All of the above.
And I mean it. Especially with this girl. I love her exactly the way she is right now.
In so many ways she reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. Her imagination…her curiosity…her temper…
And just like with Alice I’m afraid one day she will wake up and her days in wonderland will be over.
So until then I need to savor any minute.
PS: I made her this dress a few weeks back….it’s an Alice in Wonderland inspired dress…I wanted to make her something that was totally Alice but also not a costume….something that she could wear everyday….and I have to say it melts my heart more than a little when she wears it…it suits her to a T.
What a lovely dress 🙂
Liz, it’s beautiful. In recent years, my girls are asking for “pretend play” outfits over trick-or-treating costumes for Halloween, too. They’re still costumey (as in, totally inappropriate to wear to the store, or church, or someone’s birthday party, even) but good for indoor and outdoor fantasy scenarios. I love that the stuff I invest time and effort in gets mileage throughout the year and (if I draft it for growth and sew it in knit) for some years after.
Wow! Just beautiful…your girl and the dress too!
Beautiful!! Her hair is gorgeous. I love this image so much (and the thought behind it). I completely agree. Time just flies.
I love this! So pretty.
