Seven Years

Today we celebrate seven years of being married. I'm sure I've told this story before, but it rained on our wedding day which seems like the worst thing that could happen, but really it turned out to be kind of magical. The sky was incredible and people still talk about dancing in the rain. I mean, how often do you get to dance in the rain? Next time we have wet weather I'm dragging Forest outside for old times' sake.

Red Lipstick Times...

One of the most enduring and stylish metrics for measuring the severity of hard times is sales of red lipstick. First noted during the dark days of Wold War II, when the popularity of the glamorous but relatively inexpensive pick-me-up skyrocketed, it has proven to be a surprisingly accurate barometer ever since. But it goes beyond makeup. Time and time again, when the going gets tough, the tough get glowing.
