The Beautiful Story of a Polka Dot Dress….


Several years into our marriage I was cleaning out my closet when I tossed this dress in the give away pile. 

My normally non-sentimental husband shocked me when he said, “You’re not giving that dress away, right? That’s the dress you were wearing when I fell in love with you.” Wow.

Needless to say, I saved the dress. 

For years it was tucked in the back of my closet. Then when we redecorated a couple of years ago, I decided I wanted the artwork in our home to mean something. To tell the story of us.

So, I pulled the dress out of the back of the closet, framed it, and put a little plaque on the bottom that reads, “Our story begins here.” And I put it by the front door where I’d always see it coming and going.

Love isn’t always easy. But it is beautiful. An amazing choice. A gift from God.

A gift I got one day while wearing a polka dot dress.
