During Christmas break Hannah wandered into my room one evening to borrow some jewelry.
Scott and I were in there reading and working on our laptops.
She went over to my table and looked through the goods – as she’s done a million times before – trying to find the perfect thing for her clothes ensemble.
Soon I heard her sigh and say, “Mother. WHY is everything in here so gawdy?! Don’t you have anything that’s simple?!”
Hannah knew what a nice compliment that was for me.
I. Am. Gawdy.
I don’t do ‘simple’. 🙂
