I am usually a pretty stubborn tomboy.* Sometimes [ahem, almost always] I don't even blow-dry my hair in the morning. But when I get the chance, I love dressing up.
This weekend my spouse and I attended a celebration for the anniversary of the Marine Corps. Our Embassy (as are all Embassies) is guarded by a sweet group of Marines, so it is a tradition to have a ball to celebrate the occasion. I have loved getting to know the young men and women who are assigned to our post. I think it's a lovely tradition and a great way to build up the community.
We had a fun time with our friends and coworkers. Little known fact: I LOVE to dance!
*PS: sort of obsessed with the blog Tomboy Style right now. Have you read it?
