Today was my first Shania Twain day since my double mastectomy.
What do I mean by a "Shania Twain" day?
Man! I feel like a woman.
I woke up feeling feminine and slipped on a dress I bought at the end of last summer that I haven't (1) felt like wearing and (2) been able to fit into. A cute little, floral JCREW number that screams summer. Too bad, it's already Pumpkin Spice Latte season, but I rocked it anyway. It's still warm here in Oklahoma.
So...let it be known that it took exactly 7 months and 5 days for me to feel like the feminine, garden party going, dress and heel wearing princess that I used to be.
The best thing about being a woman
