Now and then

Monday, July 23, 2012
We are home and settling back into normal post vacation life.  I have a lot of photos and things to sort through but I really wanted to post this. One of the very first things I bought for Kate when we got her referral was a cute little dragonfly bathing suit.  It was on clearance at a nice boutique in Richmond, VA and I could not wait to see my daughter in it.  I posted about it here. She wore it on her first trip to the beach (Hilton Head) and I took these photos.....

The Finale

Well, fast forward 5 years and I spot this same suit on Zulily.  I HAD to buy it!  She loves it and wore it to the beach this year too (Seaside)...
