I’d Rather Be Naked

It’s a scorching hot week.

The kind where you feel like you’re melting when you walk outside.

But even though the thought of going nude (simply to beat the heat) was tempting, I thought it might be awkward at Costco and the park, so I donned the next best thing: a sheer tank and a comfy pair of denim shorts.

There was no point in doing my hair, so up it went on the top of my head, capped off with a Gussy headband. The booties lasted through the trip to Costco, but were replaced with sandals for the park as the temperature hit 90. Yeah, we didn’t last long there.

Apparently, one of the side effects of this heat is that it renders me unable to make eye contact with the camera, and instead can only look down or to the side.

  • On the Eve of Thanksgiving this year, I’m feeling lots of love and gratitude toward my family, friends and you {Wild Ruffle Readers}! My life has been crazy chaos lately.  Starting way back last summer, this fall, and even up through last weekend. I’ve been running like my head’s cut off. Which you have so graciously read… [Continue Reading]

    Feeling Thankful
  • My husband recently surprised me by saying he had purchased tickets to a Garth Brooks concert. Not growing up a country music fan, I wondered if I would know any of the songs, and whether I’d really enjoy myself at the show. I gotta say – I truly did have fun. Though I didn’t necessarily… [Continue Reading]

    Wisdom From Garth
  • I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up… [Continue Reading]
