“She has a flair for doing things in a very elegant manner.”

Longwood Gardens in front of the 20-ft. lunchroom windows!

“She has a flair for doing things in a very elegant manner.”  Oops, major blunder. That’s certainly not a reference to me!  While I wouldn’t consider myself a klutz, I am not one of those women who possesses even a modicum of grace. They are easy to spot though, aren’t they? Those fine, elegant women who appear to float on air. Not only does their manner exude such exquisiteness, even their dress, no matter what that is, seems to add to their poise. 

I am hoping, that with age, my grace will manifest itself. As you can see by the self-portrait above, at age 59–it hasn’t happened yet!

  1. the design of the bottom of your shoe is reflected in the leaves and the bark of the tree….and the stunning yellow tree….the branch above your head appears to hold you like a puppet….your grace also permeates through your gift with the camera. God bless!

  2. Hi, I so enjoy your blog daily. I’ve nominated your blog for the Leibster Award.

    3. Post the award on your blog.

    4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogsphere – other bloggers.

    5. And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma.

  3. I second Pocket Perspectives. I think you are a lovely lady with a flair for the fabulous. Besides, you clumsiness would make me feel right at home. I can’t tell you the number of times my Dad used to watch me doing something ridiculous and say “Just call her Grace.” I say it a lot now too, while raising my hands in the air displaying my elegance.

  4. Rofl…..my 95 year old aunt always gets worried before her birthday parties…her perception of a need to transform into a gracious and a lovely lady…So, she’s still waiting, too. But then the parties arrive and she’s friendly and honest and authentic and has a great time. No one wants her to be elegant! I think you’re terrific just the way you are…
