Bridgy Buys A Snowglobe

I got my first real snowglobe in 2000 when I was a single mom. At the time, Juliette was three and we lived alone on 57th Street. We loved that snowglobe! We’d sit on the carpet in our nearly empty house and I’d let her turn it upside down and shake it. We’d watch the snow float down oh so quickly, and then she’d turn it upside down and shake it fast and hard and we’d watch the snowfall once again.

When I unpack our Christmas decorations every year, I am most excited to put our snowglobes on the mantel. In 2001, I got another snowglobe, but I didn’t get another one until last year. They all came from the same place, B.C. Clark, a historic jewelry store in Oklahoma City.

Today, while Sullivan and Juliette enjoyed winter art camp at City Arts Center, I stole away with the Super Bridgy to B.C. Clark in downtown Oklahoma City to get another snowglobe. Bridgette is three, the same age Juliette was when I got my first snowglobe. When we walked passed the jewelry store window Bridgy peeked inside and asked me if it was Santa’s workshop. There were three snowglobes from which to choose. She selected the gingerbread house snowglobe. Good job, Super Bridgy!

Special thanks to B.C. Clark for letting me take pictures of Bridgy buying her first snowglobe. I’m not making this up. She said, “Mommy! Look at all the lovely things!”

You are lovely, Bridgy.
