Make it pretty.

Today’s Word of the Day is embellish which means, “to make more appealing or attractive.” I enjoy making things around the house look nice, particularly when we get into the autumn/winter. I don’t go overboard though because few things are tackier to me than houses that overdo their seasonal/holiday decorations. You know the expression, “KISS — Keep It Simple, Stupid”? That comes into play here. Simple and classy will always win out over tacky and extreme. There are some houses around me that go waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overboard for Christmas every year, and it’s like…how expensive is your light bill??? On that note, for today’s Musical Interlude Friday selection, I thought I’d go with a song that talks about loving someone without all the embellishments that they sometimes employ to make themselves more attractive. In other words, it’s not necessary. You as you are is enough. Here is “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel. Enjoy!

Tell me what you think!
