Monday, April 14, 2014

I have a case of the Mondays today. It's been a difficult day for me. But I still found something to smile about: this blue sweater. My mom gave this sweater to me for Christmas when I was a freshman in high school, believe it or not. I love it! This color looks really good on me and somehow it doesn't look worn out at all. Well, the sleeves are a little stretched out... Anyway, a few months ago I wore the sweater to work and one of the buttons came off the sleeve. I was so sad! And, I knew I wouldn't be seeing my mother for quite some time, so I didn't know how I'd get the button sewn back on. Somehow, with all the years of sewing lessons from my grandmother when I was young, I couldn't remember how to sew a button. (But I do know how to make amazing bread, and she helped teach me that, too, so maybe that makes up for it?) The sweater hung in my closet for a few months, taunting me every morning as I got dressed. A few weeks ago, I finally sat down and watched a YouTube video on how to sew a button. Surprise. It's not that hard. Who knew? So, I had my favorite sweater back just in time for the weather to turn warm. I had just gotten used to the idea that I wouldn't have need to wear it until next year, and wouldn't you know, the weather suddenly got cold! So I got to wear my blue sweater today!

Oh look! Another awkward headless mirror selfie...

Life is beautiful, especially when you are looking for the beautiful things that happen every day.
