Why not have a part III?
It is so encouraging to me to look back and be able to clearly identify things that made me happy and things that made me sad. I think that's the good part of looking back. It's using what will make us better in the future!
I loved trying new, retro-inspired hairstyles in 2012.
I discovered that I love the color brown. (But I told you that recently, didn't I?) I bought several brown dresses in 2012.
I spent lots of time walking my beagle, Annie, around our apartment complex.
I began a trousseau of sorts as this was the month that I received a claddagh ring from my sweetheart and began to make plans to marry, honeymoon, and move.
I will never forgot the day this was given to me! (Men do still get on one knee, just in case you were wondering.)
Now. About today. It is very cold here with a mixture of ice and sleet falling. The good thing about working at home is that I don't have to go anywhere, so I can dress any way I want to and still have a job. On the flip side of that, I have learned that I feel better about myself if I get dressed (for real) each morning. Yeah, it's a privilege to be able to work in my PJs if I want to, but I don't do it.
The cold weather outside calls for something warm to put on when I go out to walk Annie and feed the birds. Also, I work next to a window, and even though it's closed, I can feel the frigid air pawing at me from behind the panes. I love having a sweater tied around my waist, that I can don and doff easily. I suppose I have worn these boots to death, but they still look new and I am still in love with them. They look good but they work hard too. My little songbirds are glad. How about a picture for you from the feeders this morning.
