Me, Dad, #1 Son and Mimi, oh about 20 years ago...
Even on a casual weekend...my Mimi
"dressed to the nines."
Manicured nails: check
Immaculately coiffed: check
Classic jewelry: check
"Dressed to the nines" origin is unknown but may be a reference of scale. Who IS a 10? In my mind Mimi came close. She certainly was a good role model!
I hope your daughters are blessed to sit at an older woman's feet. SO MUCH LIFE there!
