Once again, today, I’m linking up with a group of online folks who participate in what’s called Five Minute Friday – you write for five minutes only, saying no to the backspace key and editing altogether, and you see what comes out on the other end of your timer. I kind of like it. Join in!
The word: VIEW.
Today Baby and I made our way over to this cute little boutiquey store in the heart of Noe Valley, an area of San Francisco. Really, it was all Miss Lori’s doing – in a good way, of course, as when I mentioned we were soon heading to the East Coast for a trip and might need a little wardrobe updating, like a cat on a hot tin roof, she jumped at the chance.
And requested to hold Cancan while I tried on dresses – who does that? Thank you, friend.
But aside from her awesomeness, handfuls of dresses were pulled from the racks. I need to look East Coast-savvy, you know? I told the salesladies, vetoing ones that looked too short or cute, and instead opting for the supposed longer and more elegant of cuts.
As I stood in the dressing room, stark-white body in front of the mirror, it didn’t matter whether fluorescent lights hung above: I saw my post-baby body, and shirked back negatively in response.
Nine months on, nine months off…
But more than that, when will I look in the mirror and glow back lovingly towards myself? When will I see myself as my husband sees me, as Beauty Himself sees me?
