I just found out about this fun meme, so I haven't had time to take pics to go with my ideas yet. I hope to do a better job next Friday.
An outfit that makes you feel feminine: I love dresses and skirts! I wear a lot of pants, but I feel most at home in a skirt. I've been that way since I was three.
To the left is the skirt part of a dress I just ordered from IGIGI. I haven't gotten it yet, but I'm hoping it will work for a wedding. What do you think?
An accessory that is special and makes you feel beautiful: my wedding rings. It's not that I particularly like the style. In fact, I wish I'd gone with the heart-shaped stone I had my eye on instead of the more practical solitaire that the jeweler talked us into. But, still, these are the rings my beloved husband gave me almost 28 years ago, and they are dear to me because of that symbol of love and commitment. I wouldn't change them for anything.
Something in my home that represents my femininity: Right now, I am loving the sound of my wind chimes. Does that count? They're really on the deck instead of inside. I like them because they add the feminine quality of sound to our home.
Oh, I just now thought how I love my china, with it's delicate pink flowers. I'm sort of a china freak. I'll let you decide which of these two home articles you enjoy most.
An inspiring or thought-provoking article, book review, or quotation on any topic related to femininity: There are so many wonderful articles and quotes out there, and I keep an ever growing collection of them in a file on my computer. I print some out and put them in binders to give to new brides. So, what shall I choose for today? Well, off the top my head, I guess I'll stick with the scriptures this week and choose the book of Ruth. I admire her noble and faithful femininity.
And, just for all around feminine inspiration: I'm in love with anything pink!!
