“How do you feel?” I wasn’t sure how I was going to answer that question when the time came. I can attest that it was scarier when I turned 29 just because I knew 30 was around the corner…and guess what? I finally made my way around that corner! “Soooo! How do you feel?”, asked Tia. I didn’t hesitate when I answered, “I feel renewed! Kinda like starting over. A new chapter in my life…you know?” I’m only as old as I feel so that means I’m 13, baby! No ugly wrinkles and no stubborn grays, so I cannot complain. Not even a little bit! And when that day comes, I’ll be seeking Dr. 90210 and Miss Clairol!
I spent my birthday weekend in Big Bear with close family and friends. It was a fun packed weekend as we came back to my birthday dinner at Babouch – a Moroccan themed restaurant in San Pedro. It was such a unique dining experience with dishes such as rabbit, lamb and the interesting chicken pie that was oddly good with it’s sweet and savory flavors. There was also a belly dancer and a tarot card reader to keep us all enticed! Fabulous photographer and friend, Ashley Rose came through to capture my big night and and captured it flawlessly! Thank you, Ashley for being fabulous and thank you family and friends for coming out and sharing this special day with me. I am grateful and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be the person that I am today, right now, right here, at this very moment – without you all and that’s the truth! You all make me one happy 13 year old!
