I arrived at work a few minutes early. So I parked the car next to the dog walking yard and waited. Out came a girl and her mom, with a big dog and a little dog. I couldn't help but notice, and appreciate the fashion statement of the young girl. She was dressed head to toe in stripes. Multi-colored stripes. The stripes on her dress wide, may 3/4 inch. Her socks a little narrower, and her socks narrower still. I'm not sure I would ever have had the nerve to put together this stripey ensemble, but I must say it was quite delightful. I have a new appreciation for stripes.
What about you? Stripes or dots?
Wait. Don't answer until you've checked out these shoes.
I also couldn't help but notice that holding a sweet baby girl in my arms, looking over the river from a high rise apartment and seeing all the downtown lights, felt mighty good. I think my Grammy skills are a little rusty, but have been asked back. This is a good sign. Maybe I'll wear striped socks!
