Thrift Shopping with Brielle

Travolta

One of my favorite things to do is thrift shop. And one weekend, early in my pregnancy, I dragged David along to look for antique baby things (we found an old rocking horse). While we did get the rocking horse, we mostly were sidetracked by the many albums for sale. We found a lot of great things, and we also found an entire John Travolta collection.

Maybe some of you are fans of his musical works. Personally, I’ve never listened to it, but finding his entire collection was just too good. David and I had a great time laughing at the hilarity of it all. John Travolta stayed at the thrift store, but we came home with the Best of Bread and a Jim Croce album.

I love this memory of David, Brielle, and I. We were optimistic and looking forward to a life with Brielle. We’d find out a few weeks later that she had anencephaly, but at least in that moment we were all happily making fun of John Travolta.
