Make’s me smile. My mom was always fashionable. She kept up with styles and trends, but always making it her own. She was beautiful, sweet and funny. She and my dad entering a room would make you pause—such a handsome couple!

This jacket has been to Michigan, Dallas, Sante Fe, Amsterdam and London (twice-once with Mom and once with me). It was her favorite and she looked great in it. Now it is mine, and I think of her every time I wear it. She wrote her name inside on the label- “S. Dykstra”-so it didn’t get misplaced in a restaurant or at church.

It makes me smile to see writing in her hand and to see my maiden name. I think I treasure her handwriting as much as the jacket. Small things…they matter.
