So today is my birthday. That's right, 29 years ago on Tuesday November 20th, 1984 a child was born. A future blogger/designer. Who would have thought it? I figured for sure I'd become a lawyer, doctor, teacher, or accountant. Well that's what my family wanted and at one point I thought it was what I wanted as well.

3rd or 4th birthday. I didn't need a boy to cut my cake with.
I remember pushing him off the chair too. lol

In truth, if it were up to me I would have never gone to college at all. Not that its had, its just not my thing. I wanted to have my own business. I wanted to be like my Grandmother Evelyn. The woman who put the fight in me and Mom and talk us not to take crap from anyone. I love her and I miss her every day. She was a serial entrepreneur and a DIVA!

October 30th, 2001. 16, fresh out of high school & a
student of the University of Guyana. My then boyfriend surprised
me with a photo shoot. If I showed the rest of the outfit I'd be
committing fashion suicide.

At 29 I see myself getting closer to where I want to be and although things can be a little better, I am thankful for what I have accomplished in the 11 years I have been in the United States. I am thankful for life, health, strength and the people who love me. This particular birthday is particularly emotional for me. Not that I have never been thankful before but because I'm pushing 30! Ahhhh!! My age is gonna be off the almanac in 2 years! But getting older is a good thing, aye? It shows life and growth.

29, grown and sexy.

Thank you to everyone who has made my life better even in the smallest of ways. You are all loved and appreciated.

Any recent birthdays?
What have you realized as you've gotten older?
Anything that you would do over?
What are you thankful for?
