It’s 1am and I’m writing this post. That’s the kind of birthday weekend I had! This birthday was great, but it was filled with a lot of emotions. I haven’t been super vocal about it, but after 10 months of living in San Diego, I’m heading back to the east coast. It was an opportunity that was too good to pass up, but it came too fast and frankly, I wasn’t sure if I was ready. I’ve been so lucky to have met some of the most amazing people in my life, but now I’m having to say goodbye to those people and that kills me more than anything. I’m sitting here with tears streaming down my face just thinking about it. Sigh. But if you know me, then you know I refuse to say goodbye, so it’s not the end!
This past weekend, my San Diego family and I had a night on the town of dinner and drinks. Being the center of attention (hello, it WAS my birthday) required a dress that would turn a few heads. Hello Rue107! I had been coveting this dress for some time; Rue107 is good for a sexy bodycon, and as I’ve been trying to support small businesses lately this dress was the answer for turning a year older. It was perfect! The bawdy was slamming honey! Just as a girl should on her birthday! That said, I will say a couple of things. If you saw me on Insta stories, then you’ll know that I had to go through the motions to get into this dress. I think every woman should have a foundation, but the material is suuuuper tight. I sized up because I didn’t want it so bootylicious, but I am still wearing two foundations for that snatched to the Gods look. 💁🏾💃🏾 I shot this look right before my birthday so I think a couple of times of pulling on and off this dress loosened it just a tad, but I would recommend sizing up.
I am so grateful for an amazing weekend. I am over boxes and packing and transition, but not seeing these beautiful faces on a weekly basis is going to be hard. The universe has clearly decided I’m not through with D.C., but it also knew that there was a handful of people in the universe that need to be in my life, and I needed to go to San Diego to find them. They made this weekend–and my life– so special, and for that I am so thankful.
