I have a very, very special customer, who has become very dear to us here at Pegeen.
She has such a warm and creative personality and holds a special place in my heart. Alexandra Caitlin Hubbard, who likes to be called Alex, asked me to make her a special dress that was wide enough to cover her chair and wanted to wear it to see The Nutcracker.
This is the post I wrote about my friend: Since then, Alex has been attending college, has dreams of becoming a pediatric nurse or doctor, or to help others like so many have helped her. She also loves it when you read her blog posts and I try to answer her writings (she is quite good describing what it is like to be in her shoes.)
Alex changed my life. She once sent me a video where the male lead from The Nutcracker picked her up and danced with her so she could feel what it was like to dance. I cherish that video to this day.
When she got her dress, she describes the blue as the most beautiful color of the sky. Last night I was excited as she to have the package arrive at her door and have someone help her get into her dress so she could send me this photograph.
Then, I started to read her blog. It is the most remarkable insight into what it is like to live in her world and describes the friends she meets along the way. I am sure that you would love to read her Facebook posts the way I did. Keep up your writing Raina/Alex! All of us loved seeing you in your dress! I wish I could write such wonderful stories as you!! Have fun seeing The Nutcracker on Saturday!
