Tiaras are not just for special occasions!

I’ll put up a nice long post tomorrow about my fabulous trip to Maine, but I couldn’t wait to share this thought I had during my drive.

I was stuck in traffic on the 495 just past Worcester, Mass., and saw that I’d already put over 11,000 miles on my car—just since April 2. At first I was like, yikes, that’s a lot of miles. But then I thought that’s exactly what I bought the car for—to take lots of trips. Then I got to thinking of that corny email going around about how you shouldn’t save your good clothes for special occasions, especially if they bring you joy.

Then I thought, holy cow, I should wear my tiara more often, so I put it on right there and then. Seriously, why save it for special occasions? My aunt and her partner had a good laugh when I arrived at their house, and I wore it most of the way home, too, and got some smiles from the toll booth guys and people at the rest stop on the Mass Pike.

So the moral of the story is, life is too short to save your special stuff. Wear your tiara whenever you want, dammit!

Absolutely! wear your tiara wherever you want!
I wore a dress to work today that I normally only wear on nights out, and got soooo many lovely comments that I'll definitely do it again!

I wore a tiara on my birthday and felt quite like the birthday princess! I wish my baseball cap had one attached to it...

Ooh yeah I've been seeing the emails you're talking about. TBH, I gave up with the whole "saving" thing a while ago... seriously, what are you saving things for?

TBH though I do think that when you save things for a special occasion it does somehow make them more special... does that make sense? Oh I'm a ball of confused ideas today!
