The first day of Spring has come and gone. I was pretty much oblivious to it though because most days in Florida are spring-like in nature. I still couldn't help pulling out my favorite peplum top and pairing it with a lace skirt. What I love about it is all the bright colors. Nothing says spring like hot pink, orange, yellow, etc.
Notice the hair is in another bun. After deciding to go 'natural' a little over a year ago, the bun has been one of my favorite styles. I probably should spend some more time watching YouTube videos on protective hairstyles.
Going natural has been one of the harder things I've done. What's a difficult thing you've had to do?

My birthday is on St. Patrick's Day. It's kind of cool because though I was born in Jamaica, my family is of Irish, Indian, Scottish, and African descent.
This year's birthday was so much fun. It started the night before with my son giving me a sweet card. The morning of, my husband gave me his card and beautiful bouquet of red roses and the first gift which was a pair of nude, peep-toe heels. He had to step out for a couple hours, and on his way home, he called me and told me to get ready to go and get my nails, toenails, and eyebrows done. After that, we had a quick picnic lunch on the grass in our backyard. For the rest of the day I noticed that my hubby and son were doing a whole lot of whispering and when I looked at them, they would start smiling.
A few hours later, the two of us went out to the store. I saw him making phone calls and being really secretive. As we pulled up to our house, it dawned on me that some of our friends' cars were parked near the house. I was truly surprised. After everyone arrived, we feasted on yummy West Indian food prepared by my mother-in-law. It was so awesome, because my friends pulled out the fancy fine china set that we had purchased last year but had never used.
Before I opened my gifts, we had dessert. What was it? I'm glad you asked! It was a red velvet ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery. It was so delicious! Notice that the candle only said '3.' I was glad the 'other' number wasn't put on the cake :)
What is the most memorable birthday you've had? I'd love to hear from you.
