21. February 2nd, 1776

I was rooting around in the attic and found an old painting of mother and her sister. It was tucked away in the corner. I could see Mother’s young eyes, the same brilliant dark brown as now. She had the same long silky dark brown, straight hair that reached down her back.


Then I found a painting of Mother and Father on what I assumed was a few days after they got married. Mother’s hair was wavy this time, and she was wearing a silky blue dress. Then I realized this was the dress that got passed to Alice, then Eliza, and I could imagine how similar they could all look.
