Mine

Shirt: BCBG; Vest and Skirt: Splendid; Boots: Steve Madden; Belt: Nordstroms BP
Before Husband walked out the door this morning to go to work, he gave me one of those free hugs he's so good at, and explicitly reminded me whose legs those belonged to with one simple word, "Mine." 
"Mine" in its possessive form conjures up repressed thoughts of being four and unwilling to share any of my stickers with my friends at my birthday party.  My Dad has me on home video throwing the biggest tantrum of my life because I thought those ballerina bear stickers were all mine!  (Hey, it's my party and I can cry if I want to.)  It also conjures up memories of when I was thirteen and would always steal borrow the clothes out of my older sister's closet without ever asking.  This always resorted to some sort of argument where she would yell something like, "These clothes are MINE!  Do not touch.  Do not look.  Don't even breathe in my closet."  
Mine is a word we use when we want to stake claim over something.  I guess that's what Husband meant this morning when he verbally staked his claim over me.  He's unwilling to share me with anyone else.  Because I belong to him.  He belongs to me. And together we share a life.
So maybe, I'll start to assert that phrase more while Hubby and I are walking down the street holding hands.  I'll be the crazy girl screaming, "Mine. Mine. Mine. Mine. Mine." to every person that walks by. Just like those darn seagulls in Finding Nemo.  But, it's not out of posession.  It's because I am proud.

So cute! I loved it. You totally turned that phrase into a positive statement! (and I think you should walk down the street yelling "Mine. Mine. Mine. Mine!" :)

The Finding Nemo seagulls are the funniest! And you look gorgeous, as usual! I was wondering about how you edit your photos. I know you posted a tutorial, but do you have any ideas for someone who doesn't have Photoshop? (I use GIMP, or when I must, Picnik) :)

Taylor Morgan said...

haha this cracks me up my husband and I call eachother "mine" "minsie" "minsers" more than we use each others names or any other nickname. It's embarrassing when we are in public and I shout, "hey minsie come here" and people look at us weird haha. Mine is a very popular word in our house.

Meg said...

haha, that's cute! :) Lovely outfit too, of course! ;)

Haha.. i liked sooo much the phrase:"These clothes are MINE! Do not touch. Do not look. Don't even breathe in my closet." ... I have two sisters younger than me who always "borrow" my clothes without even asking me, with the excuse: Ohh I didn`t want to wake you up, coz you looked so tired ;)
P.s: You look gorgeous in this outfit!

Gertrude said...

Love the hair!
I actually tried a bun this morning. But it wasn't a high bun like that. It was a not-as-cool low one. AND it kept coming out.
So...not really a bun.

Human Sparkler ♥ said...

Oh my gosh you are beautiful! I love your look here and all of your photos are amazing!

I love this line "These clothes are MINE! Do not touch. Do not look. Don't even breathe in my closet." I always borrowed my sisters clothes. She was older, smarter, so much COOLER, and so were her clothes!! ;) Love these shots!
