Birthday Fiesta🎉

🎝Feliz cumpleaños to me
Feliz cumpleaños to me
Feliz cumpleaños, dear Glenda

And many more!!!!

Today I celebrate fifty-two years and I feel pretty darn good, both emotionally and physically. Rather than writing my usual Style Story, today I thought it would be fun to share 52 tidbits about myself and my journey. And of course, I'll leave my shopping links in case you wish to purchase what I'm wearing. If you want my deeper thoughts into turning 52, you'll enjoy my story at STYLE with Glenda K.

Well, my friends, I hope you enjoyed this post. Before you go, please check out the important information below. Like I mentioned in my New Year post called 🌻Blossom🌻, this is the year I'm moving forward into new territories. So What to Twenty friend, Jamala, said it best when she stated, "Life is always evolving and we always seek to grow more with past lessons...and once we reach the peek of knowledge, then do we feel it's time to "blossom" out of our inner shell and let the life we seek truly bloom." 

I'm creating my very first FREE workshop exclusively for STYLE with Glenda K. Harrison subscribers. Why have I elected to make this workshop only for STYLE with Glenda K. Harrison subscribers? It's simple, I want to connect with persons who are very interested in exploring more about the subject of Style. This is my way of seeing who wants to take the journey with me. So, if this sounds interesting to you, please be sure to subscribe HERE and you'll be placed on the list to take part in this online workshop. The workshop will go live on February 7, 2018, but you'll be able to view it during a time that's convenient for you.

I'm off with  my family to have my birthday fiesta dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant, Luna Modern Mexican Kitchen. Don't forget to pop over to Fragrant Pages (my newest feature) to read Coming of Age. It's a more introspective write-up about turning 52. Enjoy!
