Sometimes it happens to me. I wake up in the morning reminiscing of my 15-year old self. I bought this dress for my Quinceañera pictures and well, it still fits! I'm still trying to figure out a way to wear it as a 21 year old, not look like a child, and especially, in this weather, dress Fall appropriate. That was kind of challenging this morning so I just threw on this denim vest in a rush and headed out the door. I promise to think harder next time, and perfect this outfit because it is a beautiful dress, I love it! Because of the memories I have in this dress, riding a horse and posing for the camera at the edge of a man-made lake in Miami, I felt young, playful, and alive! I also felt cold but that's another story related to the fact that I am NOT in Miami, Fl.
Anyway, I had a blessed Sabbath yesterday. Got to sing songs of thanksgiving to my Lord, heard an encouraging message about giving thanks for God's daily acts of redemption for us, and had a delicious thanksgiving potluck with our church family. The icing on the cake was a laughter-filled fall festival with the youth involving all sorts of fun. More on that later this week.
I hope you all have a blessed week of thanksgiving!
