There is something about dressing up and going out that makes me feel good. Don't get me wrong - I like staying home in my jammies too - but when everything comes together nicely it feels special. In these parts we rarely dress up - we are more inclined to wear jeans and a fun top to parties - but once a year I am lucky enough to get invited to a dressy event and this year I felt like celebrating a LOT. I was with some friends when I bought this dress and one of them told me I looked "alive". That was all it took - I had to have it. It represents how I feel - alive. And not just alive.... ALIVE!!!! I was probably a bit over dressed but I didn't care. The dress looks like a present - God gave me this life and the best gift of all is just being here. I may not dress like this every day - but this is how I feel every.... single ...... day. Don't be afraid to get out your "special" shoes or the good china. Live. And live well.
