It’s My Party

But I’m not crying!

After a fabulous weekend with some fabulous women, I’m celebrating my 61st birthday today–the candle on the cake!! (no icing, please! 😉 )

When I was young, women didn’t tell their ages and if they did tell–they lied about it! Fabulous women over 40 told their ages and were not ashamed! We are comfortable in our skin and too thankful to be concerned about numbers.

Count your blessings: not your age!

I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my mom. What I missed most about this experience was that my mom wasn’t able to be there. I learned so much more than just good manners and style from her. Her wisdom and sayings echo in my mind every day. She taught me to brush my teeth before putting on lipstick! 🙂

Dedicated to my mom

Taking a walk on the Catwalk …

More fashion news coming up in the days to come.

    I like the way you criss-cross your feet as you walk the Catwalk. Your smile is so enchanting and captivating….your eyes sparkle…there is joy in your face.
    The shade of red is superb for you….do put an elegant dance dress of that colour on your wish list!! You and the dress….WOW!! You showed the dress elegantly….the dress showed you elegantly.

      Thank you, Jean!! I remember watching you on the Catwalk when you were only 14 – a natural beauty!!!

      This was an experience of a lifetime, a highlight of the year (and it’s only February!) and a wonderful birthday present!!

      Would have been great if you were in town, but I’ll be posting lots more photos and videos so you’ll have a glimpse of the glamour we enjoyed!! ❤
