I have always envied those women that can just put on a swipe of lipgloss and touch a mascara and be 'out the door' ready. Sadly, I am not one of them. And of course, there's alway a few 'well-meaning' people that wonder aloud why I go through all this 'trouble' every morning.
Please understand I'm a Virginian and we southern women love our makeup. And jewelry. Pretty nail polish. Clothes with color - especially pink and green.
We don't mind, and really are too kind to say anything if our other 'sisters' don't wish to stand in front of the mirror every morning doing the makeup thing, but please don't try to deny us our rituals.
Besides, I think Mama said it best, "Any old barn looks better painted."
(Just so you know, the very top picture breaks every southern belle cardinal rule - bein' seen in public with no lipstick! Gasp!)
Until next time!
