...used to be a XXL t-shirt.
When RJ was four, he gave me the t-shirt as a Mother's Day present. He was so excited when he did it, saying, "Since you're from California, I wanted to get you a California shirt." (He was born when I lived in Tx.) The shirt was waaaaaay too big for me, more like a dress than a shirt, but I held onto it and kept it safe at the bottom of a drawer. Where I knew it wouldn't accidentally get thrown away.
Fast forward eight years later.
A few months ago, bff @ work happened upon this t-shirt while helping me move. I told him the story about how I got it, and made sure to make emphasis on how much I loved it because it was from RJ.
Bff @ work took the shirt, and had it turned into a pillow.
It was the most perfect Birthday present I could have gotten from him. Thank you, bff @ work. It looks perfect on my bed!! :-)
