1) In 2006 I had never owned a pencil skirt. I'd never even thought about it. But then I saw a photo of myself wearing long shorts and for a minute I thought it was a skirt. So then I tentatively bought this skirt, still afraid that my thighs were too shapely for a skirt. Turns out that I loved it! But after wearing it travelling for a few months and wearing it for a few years, I was getting bored. It was still a lovely skirt so I embroidered a blossoming tree. Now it's something special again.

Today I'm thankful for things that have meaning, history.
