She Found Style

an attempt to discover my sense of style in one year and learning more about myself than I ever imagined along the way

A Mother’s Initiation

You’ll notice with my outfit a brand new accessory that may (or may not) go well with my look.  A pink and purple rolled-paper, straw and bead necklace made by Miss Kaia in her kindergarten class.   My first piece of jewelry from one of my children.

To be completely honest, I never understood how adults could wear such tacky kid-made creations in public.  But when I opened my present on Mother’s Day, an overwhelming sense of love came over me and I wore my necklace with great pride.  I finally understood.  An official initiation into motherhood.

    • Michelle, you were one of the first momma’s I met close to my age. You’ve been an incredible example for all of us to follow. Thank YOU.

    Was it in Little Women where they talked of having red-letter days? This is definitely a red-letter day.

I can't wait to hear what you have to say!
