I'll bring home the bacon but you don't want me to fry it up in the pan..trust me on this.

They say opposites attract, and in my experience, I would have to agree. I usually describe my husband's and my personality like this: If life is a play, J is on the stage, and I am in the audience. He loves attention and performing, I prefer to blend in and observe.

I was observing today - people watching, if you will, and I thought to myself, "I like being a woman." I know, I know, good thing I do - haha. But seriously, I do like being a woman. I like wearing skirts and dresses, and being feminine. Being ladylike if I want to, or having the option to be hard-ass if that's my preference. My favorite color is navy blue, and I like supernatural books, but I also love the color pink and reading romance novels. Sometimes I cry, and that's okay. I like getting my hair and make-up done and watching chick flicks.

I feel like if I were a man, I'd have to be "on" all the time - you know, tough exterior, manly, loves sports. Something about all that testosterone is just ugh. I'm having a hard time explaining it; I was watching all these people walking by today (male and female) and... I just felt happy to be a woman.

I know there are so many places on this earth where it is definitely NOT a good thing to be a woman, and I am thankful to live in a country where being a woman is not a handicap to happiness.
