Today Emma wore a simple cotton blouse from Sam's and a thrift store denim skirt. She recycled yesterday's bun into a French twist and added a barette to hold the wispies.
Releve', First Position. I hope that Emma will continue to find simple joys in her everyday chores. Doing ballet while hanging out laundry reminded me of something Tasha Tudor said. I don't have the book in front of me, but the gist of it was that you could read Shakespeare as you were preparing supper. Being a homemaker is a privilege. It gives you the opportunity to create an oasis of Catholic culture for your family that would be difficult to duplicate if you worked outside the home.
Brainstorming over a writing project, Emma is plenty comfortable in her long skirt.
