Femininity To Be Admired

I had to really think about whether or not I should blog about what I'm about to blog about, and I think you'll see why in a minute. But I decided that there's something meaningful I'd like to say, and so at the risk of seeming starstruck, here's my topic: Kate Middleton is expecting a baby!

I really am not someone who follows celebrities closely, and I tend to think that celebrity gossip is often quite silly. But from what I've seen, read, and heard of Kate Middleton, I've come to believe that she is very much worthy of admiration. Her version of femininity is one I subscribe to and value very much, and one I think the world could use more of. She dresses with modesty and taste, she appears always to be poised and composed, and she has a natural grace and dignity and elegance about her. From the looks she gives him, it appears that she adores her husband and cherishes their marriage, and her beauty is natural and classic and simple.

And I think it's such wonderful news that she is now going to be a young mother. I think it is rare to find a public person who inspires and provides a positive example (hopefully that doesn't sound too cynical!) and I do find Kate Middleton inspiring. As a woman who values marriage and motherhood, who is both stylish and modest, who is naturally lovely, and who exudes a feminine grace.

And--she also married a helicopter pilot.

What do you think? Are you inspired by Kate Middleton? Do you like her version of femininity?


  1. I think you two would make good pals :)

  2. I think you have a lot of similar qualities...
    you have a kind and gentle way about you and a very big heart...

  3. I think she is beautiful and has such wonderful grace. She seems so very happy too, I didn't know she was expecting a baby. Wonderful!
