There are so many fun things about this image. #Rosebud
There are so many fun things about this image. Rosebud’s big smile. Her cute haircut for the first day of kindergarten. Her little dress.
Yes, that little dress was worn by Sarah on her first day of kindergarten close to 33 years ago. Sarah’s mother made this dress for Sarah’s first day of school and now this dress is once again bringing happiness to a new beginnings. Rosebud’s new beginnings at Calhoun Academy for the Arts.
I think about Alison McGhee’s book “Someday”, a children’s book about “a mother’s love leading to a mother’s dream — every mother’s dream — for her child to live life to its fullest.”
Sarah’s mother purchased this book before she passed away, one for each of her girls reminding them of the legacy they carry forward. This little dress has a similar reminder; maybe someday Rosebud will have a little girl, share Alison McGhee’s book with her, and share this dress for her first day of kindergarten. A mother’s legacy lives on! #canon #5dmkiii #camerapapa
