I know it’s no longer 2017, but I had the most perfect birthday and I need to talk about it. I spent it helping to host an event at work for our customers with some of my favorite Colorado gals. It was a fun and fulfilling day that only got better when I looked up from the counter to see B walking into the store. He and his parents had arranged a big surprise visit for me and I couldn’t be more thankful. We headed to one of my favorite Denver restaurants, Osteria Marco, for a dinner of bread, cheese, and cocktails. Oh, and I went home with a couple of new pieces I bought myself from the store that I thought I’d share with you. That’s right, it’s time for the Birthday Splurge 2017.
If you’re like me, you’re scrambling right now. Holiday parties and get togethers left and right and I feel very unprepared. The one thing about party wear is that I don’t tend to get good continued use out of the pieces. I’ve rounded up my favorite options for your holiday parties and events that you can wear again and again after the party is over. PS I’ve included both plus size and straight sized options. Everybody wins!
Last Saturday was my 24th birthday. This is the time where people take the opportunity to write about things they’ve learned in their X amount of years, but I’m not sure I’d know what to say. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve learned a lot, but I don’t feel ready to do that. I do feel ready to show gratitude. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that I have so much to be thankful for. I’ve lived an incredibly blessed life and think this is the perfect time to reflect on 24 things I am grateful for.
