Celebrating so many things...life, love, my beautiful mother (HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY! I took her out for lunch today), my wonderful hubby, gorgeous weather, and...
Also, the comerades who compliment a girl on her pretty jewelry. :) I got a bunch of compliments at the restaurant. I love when people are jovial and go out of their way to be nice to total strangers. It makes a girl's eyes sparkle just as bright as the shinies she's wearing. [It makes a girl think that maybe, just maybe, this world's not going to heck-o in a handbasket, and that she'll be able to feel OK about raising her future kids in it.] I try ardently to make strangers' days a little brighter; I grew up in a small town and that friendly mentality will haunt me (thank God) to the grave.
The only bad thing about that mentality? Well, there are two bad things, actually: 1.) Boys seem to take it the wrong way when I thank them for holding a door, and 2.) I tend to just 'pedest' across any old street when- and where ever I darn well please, 'cuz that's just how we do it in my old-school hometown. haha...
Speaking of being old-school: a couple of my photos looked pretty sweet in b/w.

That, my lovely friends, is the thrifting find of this century. At least, of my life up 'til now. I haven't delved too deeply into it as of yet, but of all my thrift finds, it's the one that I'm the most sure is genuine (and I'm pretty skeptical about this stuff).
SO. What I'm saying is that I'm pretty doggone sure that that phenomenal red handbag I'm holding is actually-for-real-gen-u-ine Louis Vuitton, and not only that, but I'm pretty sure it's VINTAGE Louis.
I'm so in love with it, it almost hurts. I slept with it next to my bed the night I found it. I call it "Louis," and ask if it missed me while I left it on the kitchen table to go to the gym.
Maybe I should get myself into therapy.
But only if Louis can come with me.
