Have you ever seen an apron this cute?
My mother-in-law gave this apron to me a couple of weeks ago during her visit. With no provocation whatsoever. No birthday. No holiday. No anniversary. No reasons for apology or making up.
She did it just because.
And that makes me feel really special.
Besides, I have a secret penchant for aprons. I don’t know why, but I just adore cute aprons! I never actually buy them for myself. What, after all, could possibly be my justification? That I need yet another piece of pretty cloth to absorb splatters and spills? What could be more superfluous? Fortunately, none of that matters when someone else buys one for you. Then you simply get to enjoy yourself, free of guilt.
Now I find myself making excuses to put it on. Yesterday, for example, I slipped into it before…folding clothes and dusting. No, my clothes don’t generally get too dirty doing those kinds of chores, but darn it if that apron didn’t make me feel better! I felt downright chipper.
Hmmm…I think I’ll go put it on again, seeing as I’m a little sidetracked from this afternoon’s goal of tidying up our home.
