My beloved white sunglasses. I think I bought them at TJ Maxx or maybe Marshall's for like, 9 bucks...but oh, they are worth so much more than that to me. Whenever I put them on a feel young, fashionable and...well almost frisky! I can't explain why they have this effect on me but they do. As I pack them away, I feel like I am packing a part of me that has been buried beneath breastfeeding, booty-wiping, sippy cup filling, boo boo kissing and all the other makings of motherhood for the past 6 and 1/2 years. I really can be fun, spontaneous and full of laughter...I promise. So, as I pack these away I am going to make an effort to never lose myself again...to be the "me" that I truly am and not just the "me" that I think I am supposed to be. Oh, and I have an appointment with one of my besties to go shopping tomorrow...TJ Maxx and Marshall's is definitely on the "hit list". Here's hoping I'll come home with a little (new) piece of me!
