Hello Divamoms & Divas,
Thank you all so much for making my 26th birthday (yes, I’m the same age as last year!!) such a memorable weekend. I was shown so much love and I’m forever grateful to God for giving me life, for sending me great friends, a loving family and this blog.
Blogging has opened the door for me to meet some wonderful ladies here in South Florida. Schevashea of Curves and Confidence joined me for dinner along with Ashley of A SassyWoman and Roodlyn of Supermom Place. Both Ashley and Schevashea dedicated posts to my birthday here and here. These ladies are like girlfriends I’ve known for a lifetime. I look forward to getting to know them better and exploring the city.
Dinner was superb. The staff at Ruth Chris rendered excellent service (there was 21 people in my party) and I’ll be sure to return in the near future. Every moment from beginning to end will forever be etched in my heart. Even the non arrival of the dress I ordered from JcPenney. I showed it to a few girlfriends and one guy. We were thinking it was a win based on the picture. Even the bestie Q texted and said I was going to be showing off my curves.
Well not quite :( The dress never arrived which was a blessing in disguise. I’m ready to get my monies back yesterday!! I went shopping for a dress but didn’t find anything. I did get 4 pairs of shoes ( two from Zara and two from Aldo), a handbag from Zara and a t-shirt, another t-shirt from H&M and a ring, gift cards and get this……………….. a beautiful red dress (thanks KP!!).
Yep God sent me my heart’s desire anyway. I’ll be wearing my new item soon to church and I couldn’t be happier. Truly words can’t express the joy I felt being surrounded by people who cared enough about me to travel over an hour and take time from their families to spend an evening with me. There was much later, good food, wine and heartfelt words spoken about me that almost made me cry. I do have one more BIG celebration planned with the besties. Stay tuned for an extended partay celebrating me.
Sending Air Kisses,
