A Happy Birthday Sealed With a Bow!






                                                               (lost a button to my shirt here)


Hello! Hope you had a lovely weekend.  I celebrated another birthday this weekend so it was a good weekend.  I used to think of birthdays in terms of gifts, and yes celebrating, but as I get older, I look forward to my birthday in a different way.  Although I still look forward to celebrating (not always in terms of parting), it's simply just to celebrate life, being reflective and thankful to God for another year even if subdued.  The one thing I realize on this birthday although I've heard it before is we are ultimately responsible for our own happiness.  Life is not always happy but we should always find the "happy" in life.  On the other hand, I'd be lying if I didn't say the older I get, the more I get a slight anxiety of having certain goals which are yet to be accomplished.  I'm thankful for the goals I have accomplished so far but I think we can always be more, do more, help more etc. 
 
For my birthday, I went with a feminine look pairing this pink bow skirt with a black crochet detailed blouse, round toe pumps and a handbag.  I wanted to wear something that popped as it's a celebration and I think the skirt did with it's vibrant color, bow and high low hem.  Thanks for stopping by!
