How we got Cookie starts with a little bit of a sad story.
I lost my sister to cancer in June 2014, almost 2 months after I got married. She had been battling cancer for several years when she lost her fight. After she passed, I lost my way and felt like a part of me was missing. My husband tried everything to help me out, but nothing worked. I tried everything from therapy to group supports, and although it did help for a while, as soon as the sessions would end, I would go back to being depressed. It wasn’t easy for my husband, especially since we were Newlyweds so this was supposed to be one of the best times of our lives, but it was the exact opposite.
When I first got married almost 4 years ago, my mom gave me a very important tip that I still follow to this day: when you leave the house, always make sure you are wearing lipstick.
Some of you might find this an odd tip, but when you think about it, it’s actually really smart and has come in handy on more than one occasion. A girl who wears lipstick shows that she has class and is confident. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that those who don’t wear lipstick aren’t classy or lack confidence. There’s a lot of classy confident women out there who don’t wear lipstick because either they don’t feel like it or quite frankly didn’t have time to put some on (I’ll admit that I’ve been in that situation a few times so now I always make sure to have lipstick in my purse).
