Whimsical by Weekend

    I love hats.  I wish we all wore hats again.  They look good on men, they look good on women.  The right hat makes us all look a little more sophisticated--- a little more dapper.  I bought this hat when my first child was still a tiny baby in my arms.  
    Shopping was my bonding time with my mother during those precious years when all the world was new and time was still ahead of me.  We shopped for maternity clothes.  We shopped for cute things that would accommodate my newly voluptuous past baby figure, and daring new things like this bright green felt cloche which at the time came with a matching scarf and mittens.  We shopped for more maternity clothes.  We shopped for things that would flatter my super busy, super sleep deprived form.  
    We talked non-stop about everything and nothing.  We tried things on and spun around for each other to see.  We took turns holding the babies.  We always stopped for Jimmy Johns sandwiches and Berry-Berry Smoothies and it was all precious and sweet.  And then we moved away and my babies grew up and I learned to carry on alone.  
    Now we're back and we bond over simpler things like snapping green beans on the porch before we can them and long talks about how having two teenagers in the house is quickly making my gray streak wider and harder to hide.  On my last visit to mum's house, I pulled this hat down from the closet where I left it.  I knew it wouldn't make it through so many changes of address without being crushed.  So, here it is, just as lovely a I left it.  And once again, I have to say:  It's good to be home.
