Twirling


When I was a little girl I loved nothing more than to twirl in any and all skirts that I had. Often Mom would have to tell me to stop because I was going so hard that you could see my underwear! After I moved out here it was about 6 months before I was able to afford a shopping trip of any sort. When I finally could afford it, I went to JC Penny's I fell in love with this black skirt and wanted it more than anything I had in my hands. I put everything back and paid $54 dollars for my Black skirt that I just knew I would be able to twirl in. I've worn this skirt out, I've sewed and resewed the seams on it. It's been worn for work, for play and for Halloween. At work today I noticed that I had a hole in the back of my beloved skirt that was about as big as a 50 cent piece. Julie helped sew it up after multiple people had saw my orange underwear and no one said anything about it! Though Mindy says she was trying to figure out a non-embarrassing way to let me know; and I appreciate that. Any ways, after today It's time for the skirt to retire. I will be putting it in my Halloween box to come out once a year because throwing it away is not an option and it makes the very best witch skirt ever! For now, Good bye to my favorite skirt's every week status in my life. I'm very sad. Eric helped me take an "artsy" photo to commemorate the skirt in all of it's glory.
Let's have a moment of silence now...






Thank you.
