Fashionably Late

Posted by Melissa Baumgart
There are some months in GLWT history that just don't take off.  I think sometimes it is the subject matter, and other times life gets in the way.  I can remember salsa month back in the first year, I really wanted to do it, but Jamie and I kept fighting and never wanted to dance together.  Then there was writing month, I was shocked I never really wrote that month, since I picked it.  I suppose we all need a break sometime.
Lily and her BFF Lili, these girls are "styling."

This month was supposed to be "Styling" month.  And there's still time, so it still is!  I think what Amy had in mind was re-styling our wardrobes, our homes and anything else that needs a little boost of extra creative attention. 

I looked up online definitions for styling and here is what I found:

From the Free Dictionary -
  • A quality of imagination and individuality expressed in one's actions and tastes: does things with style.
    • A comfortable and elegant mode of existence: living in style.
    • A mode of living: the style of the very rich.
    • The fashion of the moment, especially of dress; vogue. A particular fashion.
 From Urban Dictionary -
  • Verb - To be pursuing someone for romantic purposes or sexual purposes.
    "I was styling Cara-Ann there for the longest of times, but she was tighter than a Catholic school girl, so nothing came out of it."  (OMGMust start using this one.)
  • To be wearing an outfit or to dress in a mismatched, individual interesting and ultimately fashoinable and attractive way.  First heard in Bolivar, OH.  as in "that sweater vest and oversized hat are rather styling."
I make no promises over the course of the next two weeks about how styling I'll be, but just know that we haven't gone anywhere.  We're still here, and I expect next month's iPhotography to be really fun.  Oh, and my toe doesn't hurt anymore!  It kinda feels like it's not really attached to my foot, but that's ok, the pain is over.  Maybe I can start running again!

All of life is a series of GLWT projects that we try to do in the time prescribed. But, sometimes we need help and I think you should ask Lily to come to the aid of her Mother in her time of need.

Or did you already do that?
