I smiled. That’s what I did when I looked at this outfit in the mirror…smiled. It’s my goal with every outfit. To smile. To feel good in what I am wearing whether it is for work, church, an occasion, or just errands. I confess there are far too many days that I just shake my head and go, and I have a personal goal to stop.  More smiling…less settling.


There are many things which make me smile. Of course, my family and faith would be at the top of such a list, but the list would also include:

Early Beatles music

Dialogue from all Gilmore Girls episodes

Meeting a deadline

Book stores and coffee shops

Holding a newspaper in my hands

Phantom of the Opera (really any Broadway musical)

Being Texan

Visiting New York

When one of my students, “gets it”

Houses with lights inside at night

Autumn

And outfits like this one!! Are you willing to share? What makes you smile?

Blog friends also make me smile!!
