The Right Hat

I have always loved hats.
  I admire women who have the confidence to wear one;
 and it does take attitude to adorn a splendid hat!

Last week, I had a request for a hat cake to celebrate a lovely lady's 70th birthday. How revealing that her family and friends chose to celebrate her day with a hat theme! 

 Even without comment, the very idea says much about the uniqueness and quality of this woman's life. Indeed, she must be incomparable.

So a very special hatbox and hat cake was designed exclusively for this landmark birthday.
The hat was embellished with a large bow, a cluster of hydrangeas and a jeweled butterfly.
It had to be exceptional.
Just as distinctive as its recipient.

Someone once said,
"Fashion is a kind of communication. It's a language without words.
A great hat speaks for itself."

So true.
A beautiful hat voices gentility.
It speaks of regalness and whispers grace.

A stranger you were once.
Then, with a gentle look you took my hand.
As our lives engaged,
you lit my life and I held both your hands.
Now that decades have passed,
ours souls have indeed become one.
How fortunate we are
that we have found the love so true
that everyone dreams about.
