I wore polka dots today

…and felt like an idiot. Why? I think polka dots are adorable. They are playful and happy and youthful which are traits I value. And the outfit I had on was classy and cute. So why did I feel anxious … Continue reading

Grandfather’s virility

I like this picture of my grandfather. He passed away this summer and my sister and I looked through old family albums to choose a few photographs that might tell of his life. Neither of us knew much about Grandpa’s … Continue reading
