Lately, in the outside world, I've been noticing how women are talking and expressing themselves. Some are trying to show their strength by talking rough, edgy, harsh, loud. They embellish tough behavior and their position in life. Having the heritage that I do, I know a little something about strength and endurance, but we can be strong and lovely at the same time. I think some believe that if one talks sweet or demure, it's a sign of weakness. When actually, strength is inside of us, and when we are whole inside, our words come out honest and true. We don't have to be outrageously lovely to talk lovely. My aunt was a very simple looking woman, but she talked calm, with grace and kindness. Let us bring back the lovely in women, with a freshness all of its own, and I will start with me and my own daughters.
My husband bought me a special gift for Christmas this year.
When we were out doing our shopping a few weeks before Christmas, we stopped at our favorite hotel for a glass of champagne. The tables were adorned with these beautiful antique tea pots that were being used as vases for fresh flowers.
I mentioned to my husband how much I loved the decor, and shortly after a special Christmas package arrived for me. He remembered the perfect gift! I absolutely love all the fine details.
And doesn't it look so lovely with these hydrangeas? My husband picked them out himself.
There's nothing like a pretty new piece for the home to . . .
