'spin me around'

[The following conversation started this morning after Cate must have been looking at this picture, which Ryan Brooks took on Aug. 3, 2002, and now hangs in our living room.]

Cate: I like Cassie's flowers.

Me: Me too.

Cate: I have them?

Me: Well, when you find a husband to marry, you can have flowers like that in your wedding.

Cate: Sure. And I like your dress.

[We have talked about my wedding dress before because she likes a wedding picture we have in our bedroom. And she knows the white dress is stored in a box in my closet.]

Me: You know you can have that dress when you get bigger.

Cate: I can. It's in the box in your room.

Me: Yes. Waiting for you.

[Makes me thankful I didn't sell it, although after a couple years of storing it, I wish I had.]

Cate: Remember Zac spin Cassie around?

[Interestingly enough, Cate was 3 months old at my sister's wedding, but she wasn't actually there ...]

Me: You remember the picture hanging in Cassie and Zac's apartment?

[This would be the picture, taken by Michael Dann. Their wedding was on Aug. 4, 2007 -- five years and one day after ours.]

Cate: Yeah. I 'member.

Me: When you get married, your husband will spin around like that.

Cate: I wear your white dress and my daddy Greg spin me around.

Me: That's a great idea.


  1. That is a precious conversation. :)

  2. I love that. So precious. And I'm glad you documented it.
