Aprons and I have a checkered past. I wear them a lot. A lot. Primarily because: (1) I am an extraordinarily messy cook, and (2) I spend a lot of time working in the kitchen. So in order to protect my clothes, an apron is definitely in order.
Plus, I've found that during my clumsy pregnancies, an apron doubles nicely as a bib.
Back to my history with aprons. I've had some very cute ones in the past, but for unknown reasons, they always seem to end up getting ripped. Yes, ripped. I don't even know how it happens. I just discover holds, tears...rips. My last apron didn't even last two months before it looked like it ought to be made into rags.
After my last attempt (an adorable red number with white polka dots) I waited awhile, but then I started shopping around again. I'm a little bit particular about aprons, but I found a few that I really liked and put them on my wishlist.
Lo and behold, I received one as a birthday gift!
Isn't it cute?!
The material is a bit heavier than the aprons I've had in the past, so I have reason to believe that this will be a bit more sturdy, a bit more durable. Maybe it will stand the test of time...I sure hope so!
So here I am beginning again with another apron, ready to take on a myriad of kitchen projects. Birthdays, fall goodies, Christmastime. May the "citrus stripes" protect my wardrobe and bring cheer to those around me!
