I never before cared about wearing an apron in the kitchen. I wore one for work in the bakery ( I worked as a cake decorator) because I made such a mess. But now I wear one at home. And I'm not at all messy here. While cooking dinner tonight (Baked pork chops, home made apple sauce, steamed rice and green beans) I realized why I love my apron. We have have a baby now. Simple as that. I put on my apron and it tells my husband without me having to verbalize it...."I'm in the kitchen, I need a break, take Abigail and play." And somehow wearing the apron puts me in the mind set to cook and create in the kitchen.
It's a really cute apron too. In Japan the women wear aprons all the time in their homes. They have different ones for cleaning, cooking and washing dishes. There are actual stores that just sell aprons! It's almost like an accessory showing off your style like a scarf or sweater.
