#fattofabover50 #living

Day 467 – I am having a dress made for myself for the very first time in my life. I’m doing what I want and I am here to state that I am officially living.

Not in a materialistic way, but just…you know…living it up. In a living it up kind of way. Woot woot!

I’d never done anything like this and luckily I had a friend who is terrific at designing. And here I am. In her apartment. And she is cutting up the fabric while it is on my body. completely responsive and fearless. She is fantastic. I’m so appreciative.

A former Ms. Plus America, my friend has a fashion business on the side…and she goes for the glam! Yay! I’m a glam kinda girl. Until it actually is on my body…then I chicken out. Spectacularly. She’s actually good with whatever it is that you want. No judgement with her. She’s all in. And I’m loving it.

So now I’m on the hunt for other firsts. Today I helped my friend write an obituary for her father. Unfortunately, that was not my first.

Ok. Regrouping tonight. I’ll be on the hunt for another first tomorrow. Why? Because they can be fun, adventurous, and define my 2.0 life. Oh I know! My daughter turns 19 on the 19th! That’s a first! Oh yeah! Today is the last day of her 18th year…on the 18th.

The universe is trying to tell me something. I should probably don my tin hat and listen. I still don’t get it.
