I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.
~ Audrey Hepburn
So, here’s me. Without a manicure (although I definitely believe in and love them), far from over dressed, not wearing even a hint of lipstick or a stitch of makeup, no primping at all. In fact, the most that can be said for my beauty routine the morning of this picture is I brushed my teeth. Crazy cowlicks insisted on jumping out of the ponytail and hairpins intended to simply keep the mop in check as my friend and I each grabbed a happy dog for their morning bathroom walk down to Dolores Park. We tossed balls, chased a couple of enthusiastic canines up, down, and across this hill. And, in the simplicity of our actions of that morning, I was happy.
Happy just being… sitting pretty.
