Awhile back, I told you that I would show you the music box that I found on Amazon for Mia for her birthday. Nel gave me a framed picture of Mia two years ago, and she was holding a dandelion. It is the sweetest photo cause I love dandelions.
I browsed all through Amazon for a music box that was just right for her. I came across unicorns, carousels, fairies, and finally after all that searching, I found it, the one I loved, the one I wanted her to have.
So Nel ordered it for her, but she suggested getting it in white, so it would go well in Mia's room as she got older. I thought that was a good idea.
The music box that Mia gave me for Mother's Day is small and special, and the song it plays is La vie en rose.
Remember I said that special things seem to happen when Mia is around?
On Mia's birthday, I was watching Emily in Paris. Lily Collins plays Emily, who very much resembles a young Audrey Hepburn.
While watching the movie, there was a scene where Emily was with her friend, Mindy, at the park, and she asked her to sing. Mindy didn't want to, but reluctantly did, and the song she eloquently sang was La vie en rose. Right away, I thought of my little Mia, as I was hearing the song that plays from the music box she gave me.
Both of our music boxes are small, but I will keep mine forever, and I know Nel will keep Mia's forever too.
