A bit of bubbly to ring in the new year
I am sitting on my couch drinking champagne, painting my toenails scarlet and watching the Nancy Drew movie-- dreaming of cardigans with jeweled buttons and fitted-bodice, flared-skirt dresses, blondies and lemon bars and brooches and sailor trousers. And good, old-fashioned courtesy.
Tonight I will don my Victorian childhood dress, with either my 1950s Killer Heels (4 inches!) or my new Sparkly Girl Flats that I got on sale in the outer banks. I will dance and dine and imbibe more champagne, perhaps a kir royale. I will twirl my swirly skirt and dance with the girls and ignore all text messages. My new year's resolution: to live with passion and happiness and success, in every aspect of my life. Here's to being the best I can be!
