This year, for my birthday, I had the pleasure of sharing the day with my Mom. My birthday tends to fall on Mother’s Day every so often; but I don’t mind it. My family and I took a trip to Columbus (Ga), where my Dad is from, to spend Mother’s Day with my grandmother as well. It was a beautiful day filled with love and lots of hot weather, so a few (I say that loosely) pictures were in order. Sunday’s already speak “pretty” and “carefree” to me, so my birthday and Mother’s Day meant all the more feminine beauty. I picked this dress up earlier in the week at Target for a steal. I saw it and immediately thought it would be fitting for the dual tasked day. I was also sold when I remembered the turquoise braided belt I  had just purchased, and knew it would add a little spice to the dress.

I know you all are used to my afro, but I tried something new. I originally planned on taking the twist out for a curly afro, but decided to keep them. I pinned them up and added a gold butterfly pin for an extra touch. I needed something that made me feel pretty without taking my hair down. It took me quite some time to get used to it because I am used to having what feels like a foot of hair standing on top of my head.  The oh so cute girl in the pics is my 19 (almost 20) year old sister, Kerri. She’s so fashionable that many times I wonder where she came from. She’s the light of my life and she’s home for the summer so this should be fun. Stay tuned for our adventures 🙂 I hope you all had a wonderful day showing your moms the appreciation they deserve everyday; for putting up with us lol TTYS
