5 Tips for Decorating a Front Porch for Fall

Posted by on Sep 21, 2015 in Uncategorized | 5 comments

Today as I hurried all over town getting my to-do list taken care of…

…the thought occurred to me that we leave for the beach in just a few days…

…and I don’t have a swimsuit.

I was tempted to put it off.

{Which is why I currently don’t have a swimsuit.}

It’s one of those things that’s so easy to put off.

In fact, I prefer putting it off…

Fall Front Door

But then I had the revelation that it is September, and the selection would not be good, I could NOT be left with just string bikinis to choose from.

So I directed my car to the mall and was determined to make this process as painless as possible.

White Pumpkins

I gave myself a pep talk as I entered the door. Preparing myself for hours and hours of trying on suit after suit.

I approached the area where the swimsuits were once displayed only to be met by winter coats.

Racks and racks of winter coats.

The sales lady asked, “What can I help you with.”

“I need a new swimsuit,” I replied.

She sort of gave me a pitiful look and pointed to the clearance rack in the back that held a scant amount of swimsuits.

I felt dejected.

There was no way that I was going to find a suitable suit among this ridiculous selection.

But wonder of wonders…I found the perfect suit! It is the perfect shade for a woman of my figure ~ black. And the layers of ruffles do wonders for hiding this and that. I picked it out, tried it on, and bought it in under 15 minutes.

If only everything in life were that simple…as simple as buying a swimsuit. 🙂
