Welcome to this week’s Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You Carnival. If you want to join in, you can read the guidelines here.
I grew up going to church. The same church my entire childhood.
It was average size, but small enough where everyone knew everyone else’s business.
My sister and I were the only set of twins in the church. And of course, this was before multiples and fertility drugs were so common.
So, we were special. (At least we thought so.)
The youth pastor and the pastor’s daughter decided to marry. They were special and so they needed something special for their special wedding.
I’ll never forget the day my sister and I were asked to be in their huge wedding. We were going to be miniature brides. Because we were special.
The bride ordered our matching dresses, miniature replicas of her dress. I remember they were $100 each, a small fortune even now.
Even with my ‘fro, I felt like a wedding cake topper: Perfect.
We were a hit at the wedding. So much so, that we became the hottest wedding accessory! Everyone asked us to be in their wedding. I mean, if one is cute, two is adorable!
And, we already had the adorable mini bride dresses! See? We were asked again and again!
Show me what you got!
