Jackie Robinson

Happy birthday to me! #MakingPeopleLaughSince1971
 

 As I've been thinking about my life on this earth I realized that I have never done things the traditional way that you are 'supposed' to. I didn't know that I should have been thinking about getting married, having babies and working a conventional job when I was younger. I was listening to ratchet music, dancing all the time, trying to find a career that fulfilled me, and loving life. And loving it hard. That is the one constant that I have always wanted in my life; love. And it's not that I don't want those so-called normal things, it just wasn't my focus then. But I feel that things happen according to God's plan and whatever is meant to happen will happen at the time that it is supposed to.
 
*Before y'all start telling me this is the bomb twistout I want y'all to know that it's a half wig. Best 22 bucks I've spent lately. The front of my hair was left out.*
 
The greatest compliment that I've ever received is that I am a flashlight. That I am like a light shining wherever I go. I love that description. I think of it when I feel down sometimes and I remember that someone (who I don't know that well) described me as a light. I love it more than being called pretty, or intelligent or funny (although I like hearing those too!) It makes me feel that the me that I am on the inside is reflecting on the outside.
Dress: Asos
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
 
My photographer friend Paul and I had a photoshoot to commemorate my birthday. More pics to come but I am very pleased with them.  #IsItVainIfISayMyBootyIsLookingPrettyAwesome? #ImJustWondering
 
So as I enter into the Jackie Robinson year of life (his baseball jersey was 42, I feel that it's symbolic, no?) I am so grateful for it all. The best part? I don't feel 42, I feel more like I'm about 28 (except for my bum knee), and both of my parents look young so I take no credit for the fact that people tell me that they can't believe that I'm 42. I'm just glad those two got together and created lil ole me. *Ewwwwwwww, huh?*

So I'm looking at the first picture of you, Hair GREAT, Smile, Beautiful, Make up-Beat (especially the fuchsia accent lip) And I start scrolling down to see the rest of your outfit and read your post Ok, shoulder, arm (scrolling) waist...DAMN! Two basket balls sticking out the back of your dress!
You look beautiful! And I hope you don't take my humor as offensive. I just think you're real and I'm real so i can tell you what I really think! Which is your body is SICK, DOPE, FABULOUS! Moving right along...
This year went by so fast, it seems like I was just reading a birthday post by you! Have fun!!!!! But i know you will. I think I'll still be dancing to ratchet music in my '40's too. I'll still be dressing up and going out with my girls...

Happy Bday. May God keep on blessing you. And to answer your question:Yes that booty of yours looks fabulous. It was the only thing I was looking at in those pics. Lol. Seriously, that dress is hugging your curves to perfection. And me love the hair too
