The Perfect Birthday

Spring plus size fashion 740x1110 The Perfect Birthday

Last week I celebrated my birthday and at the stroke of midnight I was treated to mouth watering desserts and a glass of my favourite wine. On my actual birthday my father called and wished me happy birthday for the first time in 8 years and I cried.  

We’ve had a strained relationship over the last few years because he hasn’t yet come to terms with sexuality. The remainder of my birthday weekend was filled with quality time with Jill , seafood , laughter and more wine. It was a wonderful weekend and this year I want to laugh harder, dream bigger and take the time to savour the simple sweet moments that life can bring.

Your style should not be defined by your size!

    I so wish for you and your father that he can grow and love you, including your sexuality! That said, this outfit is divine! I am craving taupes and always love sparkle that works well for casual everyday wear. Love this!!! Hugs! And a belly bump: )(
