When I first read Little Women a few years ago, I'll admit, I thought it was duller than dull. Perhaps it was because I had been spending the past few years immersed in new motherhood, and tales of domestic bliss bored me.

A very merry unbirthday!
Maybe it's because our high school senior photos were less than stellar (hint: don't choose a photographer just because they offer a twin discount), or maybe it's because we wanted to have an excuse to get dressed up and have a fancy tea party.

It left such an impression that when I saw the painting "The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli, I was like, hey! It's like that scene from the movie! (Everything always comes back to the … Continue reading Birth of Venus
