The Red Dress




About 13 years ago my oldest daughter, Amy starred in her high school production of Hello Dolly. She was so good in it that a lot of people thought that she was a professional that the school had brought in to perform with the students! Her voice was and is just amazing and I will never forget sitting in that auditorium watching her perform. I was SO proud of her.The number where she comes down the stairs singing in that beautiful red dress at the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant and then dances with all the guys was so terrific. That was a moment in my life I will never forget. A friend of hers actually bought the red dress from the school and gave it to Amy as a gift. She wore that dress a few more times over the years- singing in a couple of pageants and in a couple of plays at the Off Broadway Theater in Salt Lake City.


I made this collage for her and also reduced it and made a pendant. I gave them to her yesterday for her birthday. Yes, we have the same birthday! She was a wonderful present for me on my 23rd birthday. She is a wonderful person and I'm so glad she is my daughter. I love her very much!
