I was tagged by the lovely fashionista Hanako66 at Through The Looking Glass to “Show Me Your Heart.”

The tag reads: “with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a Disney princess.
Here goes, I’ve tried to keep it short.

The Picture. These women are my heart. My sister, my mom, my step mom and me. We’ve gotten very close since my dad passed and this is our new version of family.

The Poem. Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe. What can I say? I am bit goth at heart. (FUN FACT: The Baltimore Ravens are named that because Poe lived and died there. Thanks Ace of Cakes!)

The Song. Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. My sister and I both chose this song as the song we would dance with our dad to at our weddings. We actually argued over who got to use it. My dad, in his King Soloman way said, “I guess it depends on who gets married first.” Cracks me up every time I think about it.

The Article of Clothing. The shirt I had made for the Father’s Day race that my dad drew in the 80’s.

The Place. The Ponte Vecchio in Florence Italy. Best. City. Ever. Especially with your best buds.

The Disney Princess. Ok. So this was tough for me. I actually had to google Disney Princesses to view my selection. Honestly, I would have chosen Alice (from the Wonderland) or even Madam Mim from the Sword in the Stone over one of the princesses but since these are the rules I chose Belle (from Beauty and the Beast). She’s a bit odd (she reads! gasp!) and she does a lot of the saving.
Quite frankly I could do an entire post on the Disney princesses. I love them for the joy they bring little girls, but waiting for Prince Charming? Come on! As my buddy E, the strawberry girl, would say: He’s basically a non-character.
Apparently the ghosts of feminists past are haunting my doors today.
Alrighty then. I tag the following (ignore it, do it, don’t do it, pass it on, whatever floats your boats)*:
Tara from Colorado Runner
and just for giggles with the princess thing…
The Count of Monte Christo from Paranoid and Running

*If you just feel like doing this then I tag you too!
