A gift from a co-worker from my last job for my birthday (which is in December) in 2004. I guess I could just wear this scent and not have to wear green and I shouldn’t get pinched, right?
The photo challenge for week 9 was “memory.” I went with two that mean a lot to me: Dune by Christian Dior and the white orchid. Dune was given to me by a co-worker when I was about 21 years old and worked at a bank. She was a french lady with the cutest french accent. I visited her once at her lovely home and she gave me an advice I try to keep up with: Always make your bed because you don’t want your man to see it messy (something like that). She also gave me her Dune perfume. I told her I loved the scent and she offered it to me. The orchard was from my last job. I still miss that place and the people I worked with.
My first daughter turned 3 a decade ago today. I enjoyed and miss those very young years. They went by too quickly. I was working full-time when she was a toddler so I really didn’t get to spend as much time as I had wanted with her. I’m very grateful to have that opportunity now (and for the last 6 years) so no regrets. She keeps me on my toes, still.
I can’t believe she’s officially a teenager today. Take a deep breath.
