a woman of a certain age.

Yesterday, as I was taking Marlo on a quick walk,
I happened upon this adorable older woman.
I quickly snapped a picture
(because I'm creepy like that)
and made a mental note to strive for this kind of excellence when I'm her age.
She took the sweetest, sassiest sock-clad steps you've ever seen,
and when I passed her and said hello,
she looked over at me and asked "How do you do?"

Love.

Aw, I really love old people sometimes. There is this one old man who goes to my ice rink, and whenever the old swing music is played he just comes to life.
I want to be like him when I'm grey and old.
(Hi, really like the blog by the way)
