Once Upon a Time

To start the new year of 2013, Lexington woke me up entirely too early and I was unable to fall back asleep. So I left the warmth of my bed and adjourned to the living room to watch Mirror Mirror. Some mornings, I enjoy laying around in bed, but other mornings it's near impossible for me to do, so I leave JP sleeping and watch stuff on Netflix that I don't he doesn't want to watch. This is my "me time."

Mirror Mirror reminds me of a couple of things. It reminds me of how much I love Julia Roberts. It also reminds me of how much I love fairy tales. I don't care how many variations there are of one story, I will probably love all of them. I love the idea of true love, of adventure, of good always winning. And I am not ashamed. There have been times when I've felt a twinge of embarrassment though. I know people who scoff at fairy tales and princesses because of feminism or not wanting to be labeled as "that girl who loves princesses." If that works for them, that's cool. But I proudly wear my fake crown and look forward to the day I can dress up my baby as Cinderella. Because princesses and fairy tales are awesome.

Added note:
The costumes in Mirror Mirror are amazing and I wish I could add a couple of those dresses to my closet.
