Random Act of Smiliness - J.J. from USA

Sometime during the summer I discovered that the Frazier Museum in Louisville, Kentucky was hosting an exhibit celebrating Diana, Princess of Wales and showcasing many personal items and clothing. Most importantly this travelling exhibit features her wedding dress. While I would love to go, having  already seen her wedding dress once, and various other dresses three times, it kind of made it a difficult sell to my husband.

Yet another nice surprise from J.J. arrived this week, this time from Louisville. I had mentioned it to her at the time and am glad she was able to make it across country to go. She was there for the weekend and it sounds like she had a great time and saw many different sights. She said while there were many highlights of the exhibit it was sad. I know exactly what she means. I personally find the photos of her in the dress to be, for lack of any other words, the most haunting. To see someone so alive and vibrant wearing something that is now lifeless is a very strong message.

Wonder where this exhibit will travel next, maybe somewhere closer to home.

  1. I promise, I WAS really there (& sent the postcard from there) even though the stamps weren't postmarked. ;) None of the postcards I sent from there were postmarked. Very disappointing. I have to write to the city of Louisville about that ... ;)
