Lady Like in Lace
Posted February 3, 2013on:
As a brown haired girl, I have always preferred wearing brown over black. I took these photos during our warm front, as I was so excited to get to wear skirts and dresses. I am so glad I had this as a back up for today’s post. Sunday went by way too fast and before I knew it the Super Bowl was about to begin… It is actually 6:12 as I begin this post.
I love this skirt and the lace top which are both thrifted
This brown jacket is identical to the one I wore Here! For some reason when I put on the lace top my first instinct was to run to my jewelry box to find my mother’s cameo. Actually I am the third generation to wear this as it was originally purchased by my grandfather as a gift for my grandmother. I believe he purchased it over seas while serving in the military during WWII. My mother often told the story of how he left when she was a baby and returned when she was six. I can’t imagine that.
My husband was in the Navy when we met and didn’t want to stay in because he wanted to be a father and present for his children. We had our daughter one month prior to the end of his four year commitment. It was a sacrifice he wasn’t willing to make and wouldn’t even consider re-enlistment. I was glad that is where is heart was and loved him for making that decision. I truly admire military families and the challenges they face and respect so much what they do for our country.
I love never knowing where my writing will take me when I start a post. Some days I have and idea but more often than not it just flows into something like this…
Gratitude: I am grateful that we are all about to sit down as a family to watch the Super Bowl. I am grateful that my husband made the choice to be a father and husband and present in our lives. I am grateful to all military personnel and their families.
