Little Black Dress Night



So, I'm ready to move on. I am letting not-so-little #1 be who she is right now. I love her, but I need to let go of all the feelings of hopelessness and fear. I am ready to let my hair down and put on my dancing shoes (and my tiara) and just have fun. About a month ago I decided to plan an event. I have never done this in my life. I felt the desire to put on a little black dress and a tiara and just have some good ole fun. So Saturday night my sister and a good friend of mine are preparing dinner for 15-20 other amazing women. My hope for the evening is to just celebrate how beautiful we all are. We will not all have on little black dresses. That was my original plan, but it is more important to me that all of these beautiful women feel beautiful. So I let that requirement slide. However, we will all be sporting tiaras. I know its silly. Sometimes a little silliness is important.

I am so excited for this evening. I will be seeing some women that I have not seen in 20+ years. I will be showing a side of me that I don't usually show. I used to love to dance. Then over the years I became too insecure to dance. I believed that I would just make a fool of myself if I danced. Well, Saturday I will gladly make a fool of myself. I guess I no longer consider dancing as making a fool of myself. I dance at home all the time. I'm ready to take my awesome dancing show on the road. I hope I don't intimidate too many people. ;)

I am also excited that it is Thursday night and I am not panicking because my house is a disaster. Because my house IS NOT A DISASTER. Pick up here, scrub a little there and I am ready to relax and be joyful. Life is good. Even when things seem dark, life is still good. So think about me dancing the night away on Saturday. Maybe you could join me from where ever you are. Happy dancing!!!!

Just my thoughts.

This is so awesome! Dance, dance, dance! You truly deserve the down time, and the release. Soak it up like a sponge, and let it permeate your entire being. I love the energy that you've put out with this post!

Hi, Jill!

First of all, I love the picture you posted of the black dress. Where can I get it?!! (Seriously, though, it's SO my style!)

I hope you had so much fun. How could you not with that awesome attitude?!

I hope we get to hear how it went. Thinking of you!

thanks everyone!! The evening was awesome. Post about it coming up.

Megan - I love that dress also. Unfortunately it was not the dress I wore. I found it on Google images. My dress was fabulous though.
