Speaking of pretty dresses, in a recent week of outfits, Marianne said she wears her nicest dresses to Trader Joe’s because life is short! Should we join her? Take a photo of yourself in a favorite dress at home, walking around the block or at Trader Joe’s, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to feature a post with us all swanning around! xoxoxoxo
Plus, two reader comments:
Says Tess on will I be single forever: “I had an amazing neighbor when I was in college. She was about 75 and single. Very maternal, always taking care of the students next door. She’d never had a date or relationship in her life. Then she met someone at the swimming pool. They went out on a few dates, and we were thrilled for her. One day, we saw her come home early in the morning. We ran to her, wanting to know everything. She said: ‘Is this what all the fuss is about? I can do a better job myself.’ And lived happily alone ever after.”
Says Diana on I’m moving into my own place: “To make my space homey, I like to frame ordinary things I’ve saved over the years. I saved a sugar packet from a trip to Cuba with my family. A bus ticket from my cousin’s town in Poland. Guitar picks I caught at concerts, napkin doodles, my mom’s grocery list. Ikea has cheap frames and picture frames are almost always lying in ‘free’ piles in my neighborhood on trash day.”
