Ceremony and Ritual


I love the idea of how grand and detail oriented life once was. Afternoon tea and summer's at the sea (I should note I am a huge fan of any British period drama...go figure). Anyway, I realize that I do have some amount of ceremony and ritual in my life. Mine involves monthly breakfast and pedicures with Ansley and Dana. It is bit ceremonious and ritualistic but on a much more realistic scale then spending my entire summer on the southern coast of England (a girl can dream). We all order the same breakfast each time and generally stick to the same toenail color. We talk about gossip, personal issues and make plans for the future. For that time once a month on a Saturday morning we create this lovely little moment that allows us to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate!! Thank you ladies for the ritual we have created.
