I don't really remember my mom wearing this belt that often, but of course she did.  It's an adorable owl belt, with faux emerald eyes.  So of course when I volunteered to be the speller for an adult spelling bee fund raiser for my girls school, this was the perfect belt!.  I put myself on stage and spelled and sang "Let it Go" from Frozen, (because the judges made me), with zero self consciousness, it felt great, because it felt like I was still being true to the kid that I have always been, the one that sang show tunes at the top of her lungs on the swings at elementary school.  And somehow that owl belt brought it all home.  It's ok to be goofy, and sparkly, and brainy.  I only hope that I can pass that on to my girls .
