    Stars and Moons

    One of the nice girls at the facility complimented me on my wedding ring while I was knitting.  It is the first time anyone liked my ring.  I don't believe in spending money on expensive jewelry, not to mention most of it isn't my taste. My ring cost 20 bucks.  It...

    We Shall See

    I was standing outside with my husband and he interrupts the conversation to say, "I love you so much."  I asked "Why exactly?", just to mess with him. He responded with, "You are just completely perfect."

    So the soap I use for showers is kind of like.

    .cherry candy scented? And the cream I put on my skin is coconut. So now when I'm around people they're just like "something smells like chocolate or cupcakes" and I'm like "yeah that's me." So I'm not sure if being told you smell like chocolate or cupcakes or cookies is a...

    Today I wore absolutely no make-up.

    .. Very rare for me... I'm addicted to mascara... And normally when I don't wear makeup people think something is wrong... Like I've been crying or I'm sick. But, today no one said anything like that to me and two women I know were telling me how beautiful my complexion is and...

    A Reason To Smile

    I was paid a compliment yesterday actually and it was quite unexpected. Going to the dentist is hard for me. I have a fear of them for one thing and I always expect the worst. I also think I have an ugly smile and rarely show my teeth in pictures because of that. I take care of...

    Complexion

    For many women, the ultimate way to be complimented, is have it done, not by a man, but by a woman! (because they are our competition!) So just a bit ago, one of the next door female pharmacisists was staring at my face while I was talking to her. I'm getting nervous...
