Best Blanket has been with me for as long as I can remember. Once a sweet pink color with a beautiful matching wide satin binding, Best Blanket knows everything about me having been with me through thick and thin from day one. I carried it with me everywhere I went until the advent of kindergarten, when I was forced to leave it at home during school hours. For years, Best Blanket was on my pillow every night while I slept. Best Blanket came along when I went from a teen aged girl to a new bride. Hubby accepted Best Blanket and it was with us on our honeymoon, at the hospital when The Princess was born, and traveled along on every vacation we took. Sometime in the mid-90's, I had to make the very gut-wrenching decision to stop sleeping with Best Blanket in order to preserve the bits that are left. As you can see, it is quite thread bare and nearly in two pieces. Best Blanket now resides in the nightstand next to my bed. Always close by, just I case I REALLY need it.
