Hey Family!!! Today is my 40th birthday..YAYYYY!!! I am so happy my God has allowed me to see my 40th birthday. I am big on celebrating birthdays..especially milestone birthdays. Birthday’s to me represent a new chapter in life, wisdom, growth, and an opportunity to be better today than you were yesterday……….. Life had a funny way of showing me my talents and gifts. I never imagined I would be where I am today. To think I went from the insecure little lady to this!! This meaning…Sewing clothes for my self and ACTUALLY liking them (LOL), sewing for others and they ACTUALLY liking them, running my OWN Alterations and Dry Cleaning business and having a chance to leave a legacy behind for my children, grand children, and great grand children…wheewww….ONLY GOD!!!! All I can say is humbled and blessed!!
All about this dress: This was one of the first dresses I made when I first started to learn how to sew. And it was all self drafted based on my body measurements!!! I knew very little about sewing much less drafting a pattern, but I wanted to push myself and I’m so happy I did. It has flaws that I would fix, however I’m NOT going to fix them. I wear this dress with all it’s perfect imperfections, because it keeps me grounded and let’s me know where it all began.
August 28th will forever be MY day!!! Happy birthday Young lady!!! Keep your head up high regardless of what they say….Remember if they talking about you, then your doing something RIGHT!!!! 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did. I can’t wait to see you again.
Much Love and Many Blessings!
