One is that this lady is my niece. Jowie and her family lived in my parents' home in San Juan while they were just starting out. She was born when I was about to graduate from high school. So yeah, I saw her wobble around the house in her diapers and wake up dreamily in the morning, asking for a bottle of milk. Look at her now all dressed up for her JS prom. How time flies.
Second is that this dress was made by my sister. Oh sorry, this dress AND this jacket/bolero. Here's my sister in a dress that she, by the way, also made herself. Amazing. I can't even sew a baby's bib even if my life depended on it!
Anyway, the moral of this blog post is that we don't have to search far for things that make us go "WOW". Amazing moments happen all the time. It's just a matter of recognizing when little victories make for extraordinary days. I, thank you.
