In the Hope Chest~ Pink Friday


I Remember when I was a child, the mystery surrounding a hope chest was almost more than I could bear. I didn't even understand the concept, but knew it was something special and I wanted one of my own some day. Every year my older sister received something for Christmas "for your hope chest." As the years passed, I started to understand that the meaning of owning a "Hope Chest" was different for everyone. For some it was planning for a special wedding day that was sure to come, others used it to store heirloom linens and treasures passed down from generations, and yet for some, it held sad memories of dreams never realized. If you've been lucky enough to have a hope chest or perhaps had a glimpse into someone's, you'll find that no matter the purpose, each "Hope Chest" tells a story. What's yours?
