"Say yes to the dress"

I am so excited camp is not that far off, and I am busy getting all the things I will need for it. I must remember bug spray bug spray bug spray!!!!!!

On July 4th, my cousin is getting married and is having a large wedding. Today, I bought my very first gown at Lord and Taylor and I feel like a total princess in it. The last time I had to get a gown was for my sweet 16 and I remember my mom took me to a store to have it made because there were no gowns in the stores for someone of my size. I so hated that gown, it was a plain black gown with a pretty trim and it cost my mom $850.00 to have it made and that was years ago. Then two years later I needed a gown so we took the same gown and let it out 14 inches so that it would fit me. I hated that gown so much and threw it away in anger after the event was over. The gown I bought today is stunning and I would wear it no matter what size I was, it is classy and sexy all rolled into one. The dress is bronze and I feel like a little kid staring at it on the hanger. I am hoping by July4th I will have taken it in a few inches.

I hope you are all happy and well and not having too much trouble with the heat. Have a great week. With love, Stacey

Dearest Stacey,

Hi again...it's the other Stacy! We lived on Marcel Road. I was friends with Pam P. during Meadow School; after 7th Grade we moved to 'godforesaken Phoenix, Arizona'...funny you should mention the heat!! Grrrrr.

Your gown sounds gorgeous! You are absolutely magnificent. You were back then...and you are still now. You were always nice to me as a child, and I never forgot that! There was NEVER A TIME that you didn't say "HI STACY" when you saw me! You don't remember...but, I sure do!! "People will forget what you say...but they will never forget the way you made them feel".

Wishing I was in New York...and I will be some day soon! We don't have Lord & Taylor here!

Always Remember:
Us Pretty Faces Have to Stick Together!

Peace & Love & Kisses Always,

Stacy Harris
