beth finds the palace beautiful

this headband is one of the 2 pink pieces i own. here's the thing- i'm not a huge pink fan but i've been told multiple times that it's "my color." with pink feeling so entitled i figured i'd try to work a few pieces in here and there. problem #2- what am i ever going to do with a baby girl?!

i'm almost done with "little women." oh how i love this book, movie, musical and all things little women. it's been years since i've read the book and i'd forgotten how young it is. in fact i had to go to the young adult section of the library to find it. here is my theory for "little women" we have meg, jo, beth and amy.

"Margaret, the eldest of the four, was sixteen, and very pretty, being plump and fair, with large eyes, plenty of soft brown hair, a sweet mouth, and white hands, of which she was rather vain. Fifteen-year-old Jo was very tall, thin, and brown, and reminded one of a colt, for she never seemed to know what to do with her long limbs, which were very much in her way. She had a decided mouth, a comical nose, and sharp, gray eyes, which appeared to see everything, and were by turns fierce, funny, or thoughtful. Her long, thick hair was her one beauty, but it was usually bundled into a net, to be out of her way. Round shoulders had Jo, big hands and feet, a fly-away look to her clothes, and the uncomfortable appearance of a girl who was rapidly shooting up into a woman and didn't like it. Elizabeth, or Beth, as everyone called her, was a rosy, smooth-haired, bright-eyed girl of thirteen, with a shy manner, a timid voice, and a peaceful expression which was seldom disturbed. Her father called her `Little Miss Tranquility', and the name suited her excellently, for she seemed to live in a happy world of her own, only venturing out to meet the few whom she trusted and loved. Amy, though the youngest, was a most important person, in her own opinion at least. A regular snow maiden, with blue eyes, and yellow hair curling on her shoulders, pale and slender, and always carrying herself like a young lady mindful of her manners. What the characters of the four sisters were we will leave to be found out."

i started to wonder which sister i was most like and i realized i think there is a little bit of all of them in me and in every girl and thats part of the reason this book is so beautiful. and the reason why every girl needs to read it.
