Always Been A Trend Setter

It's late, well it's 9:30pm, but still I clicked on "NEW POST" at 9:30pm without a clue what to write about. Don't you love a first sentence like that? Really grabs you, a writer with real intentionality! Actually I stumbled across this photo just now and thought I would chat about it a bit.

My mom is looking at the camera, that's her sister in the striped blouse. And the concentrated reader is me. I was, and still am an avid & constant reader. Hubs teases me about reading cereal boxes if nothing else is around. One of my favorite things about my Blackberry is that I always have something to read while waiting somewhere without a book!

My mother and my aunt had those teased and hair sprayed styles that were accomplished by a longstanding once a week hair appointment to get it "done". At night they wrapped their heads in toilet paper or special terry cloth turban thing to sleep without messing up the poofiness! And I am just now figuring out that you really don't need to wash your hair every day. They knew what they were doing after all! But you won't find TP on my head at night!

The best and most revealing thing in this picture? Look at our clothes. My mom & I are wearing MATCHING VESTS!! Yep, that's me, always the fashionable trend setter!

OK it's 10:15, time to go to bed and read.


  1. Awww. I think your vests are so sweet! That must have made your mom's heart soar that you all matched:)

  2. I LOVED this. (Ah...those were the days!)


Hi Thanks for reading! Please leave a comment even if it has nothing to do with the specific blog, it's great to know that you are writing stuff that real live people actually read, ya know?
