So there I was sitting in church oohing and awwing over the adorable baby crawling under the bench. He kept peeking his little head out and then after meeting eyes with mine darting his head under the bench again.
I could tell it was going to be a good day, first because of that adorable child and second because the lady next to me smelled like roses, and well how could a rose smelling lady make your day any worse really.
My eyes kept wandering, because here's the thing, we were singing a hymn and well, my child like little mind couldn't focus on the hymn words but instead started looking around the chapel for some interesting people to watch.
And then it happened.
I saw up in the very front a mint green outfit of glory going on and I thought in my mothers voice,
"SARAH! Quit thinking about clothes at church." And also, not so much in my mothers voice "Man I really want to make guacamole later!" but most of all I thought, "That is the coolest outfit EVER!"
I silently vowed to myself that I would tell whoever this woman was that her minty goodness of clothery was genius. And then I went back to singing and simultaneously making faces at the babe-y still peering out from under the pew.
After church ended I slowly saw the minty goddess stand up, turn around, and then I saw her... she was in her 80's, and that didn't for a second change the fact that I would wear her clothes in a second.
And that my friends is the moment one finally realizes that they are the epitome of granny style.
*Oh and I still told her that her outfit rocked.
