Turns out Hallie owns seven dresses (and one leotard) with hearts on them. Such a collection made it difficult for her to determine what to wear, but she eventually decided on the red dress - dressed up with her new necklace - for Valentine's Day and four of the other dresses for the weekdays (and the leotard for dance) leading up to the holiday.
Sadly, two of Hallie's heart dresses never even made it out of the closet the week of Valentine's Day. She promised those dresses she'd wear them soon, though - she assured them she didn't want their feelings to be hurt.
It might be time for us to start buying dresses with stripes or polka dots or flowers on them…and to stop treating our dresses as if they have feelings.
