Visible Monday: Renewal And The Promise Of Spring

This week's Visible Monday is brought to you by the letters P and T, as in Physical Therapy. Here's the big surprise - it's for my Mr, not for me. After years of back problems the poor guy finally pulled his lower back so severely he needs a few weeks of Physical Therapy to sort things out. It's going to be rough going for him because he's going to the same place I went to several years ago when I hurt my leg and they still remember me as their "model patient".

With Spring right around the corner it seems appropriate to want to work out the kinks, clean out the cobwebs, and make whatever adjustments are needed to move forward. So my theme for March is renewal. Renewal requires us to know who and where we are in life so we can keep the things that work, discard the ones that don't, and learn how to make up the difference gracefully and joyously.

So on this dreary, chilly day I took these photos on the roof of the Physical Therapy building with the ever-expanding Nashville skyline as the backdrop.

Not a lot of new pieces here. Denim Max Edition jeggings and Stephanie Rogers indigo wool blend tunic are both from Ross circa 2010. The tunic is actually short-sleeved but it's plenty warm and very easy to wear. Six years ago I bought the brown leather jacket from now-defunct Petite Sophisticate. As you can see I still wear it and it still looks fab, so there's no doubt I've gotten my money's worth out of it. Only the boots and the bag are new. I love these White Mountain Foxhole boots I bought this past Fall. When you have wide calves finding boots that fit can be a challenge, but these have both laces and a side-zip closure so they fit beautifully and comfortably. I also purchased the red Urban Expressions bag the same day at the same place, T J Maxx.

Once my better half completes his Physical Therapy I will have to go through Occupational Therapy for the tendonitis in my hand. It's going to be an interesting couple of months.

I'm ready for Spring.
