Last week was very life changing for me because I finally starting to feel like myself. The self I have not seen in years. I got out of my own way and allowed faith to proceed. I stopped myself from thinking so hard about what others were things about me and decided that I will not let that stop me from doing what I feel is right. Well, right for me anyway.
Last week my family and I celebrated my younger brother’s birthday and it was very different, but a good different. Everyone got to share ‘a first’ moment and together – my dad’s first time drinking a beverage out of a fruit other than coconut water, my sister’s first time eating onion strings…yes, some places makes strings. It was also all of our first time hanging out without ‘momsie’ there. As we all get ‘younger’ and time passes us we’ve noticed that we do not get to sit down for dinner as much so special days like birthdays, we really do try.
I’ve always had a liking to the black and white television shows, and old Hollywood glam which is what inspired this ‘coming home’ look. This past weekend, I was returning from a mini-vacation in Florida and was not sure if I should have worn a life jacket, a parka or both with the supposed weather that New York had been having [::Clears throat:: Thunderstorms,(plural) really?]
Taking a modern spin on Hollywood glam, I chose to go for stripes and other shapes while keeping the black and white theme.
