Send Happy Thoughts

I just mailed the lace sheath of my antique wedding dress down to Los Angeles for cleaning. Tracy was nice enough to take the satin lining out this weekend for me so it could be sent off. Dropping it off at the post office felt like sending a friend into surgery. I'm so nervous about it arriving safely and making it through the cleaning process.

Everyone, send happy thoughts to my great grandmother's dress!

Oh, that would be a little scary. I had my dressed "preserved" after my wedding. And, they really did a beautiful job. It still looks new so I'm guessing that you'll be really pleased. It is a bit more difficult though when it belonged to great grandmother. :)
