What I Wore to My Inauguration
Two weeks ago, I finished a snowshoe and walked right into the Town of Shaftsbury's offices and took my oath as a brand-spanking-new Justice of the Peace.
Now in the south, one would need lipstick and a dress - or at least the appearance of being showered - for such an event. But this is Vermont, and I wore fleece leggings, snow-choked hiking boots, blue gaiters, and a down jacket - with my very pregnant belly leading the way. I was too hot to keep my winter hat on, so I was rocking a gorgeous, sweaty hat-head look.
And no one batted an eyelash.
(Yeah - they gave me the old Meghan treatment on my document. Nothing like a rogue H to make you feel important.)
Keeping it real, and at times real homely -
Your elected official in Shaftsbury,
