    and then they shows up in theirs……..
    (love the way you start so
    many waves)

    Oh, I love this one! This just totally made my day! Something about wearing curls no matter what we are doing!

    Lately, I’ve embraced this more romantic part of me that loves curls, and the other day there was this great image of this proper woman in a novel I am reading, wrestling with her children and animals, with her ringlets flying! Sending love!

  17. Awww…I LOVE this one especially! “Showing up for my own life” and reminding me I deserve the best just for me!
