Edited *** A few weeks back, my lovely friend Meri, shared a pic of herself with a beautiful red tutu that she had received from the amazing Deb at Talk at The Table (not my friend amazing Deb Taylor at Deb Did It as I originally posted - Sorry to have gotten my Debs confused but thankful to have discovered Deb C. and her lovely inspiring blog through this !) to celebrate her birthday.
Meri did the sweet deed and then offered to pass the tutu on to someone who had a birthday later in the year.
Guess who jumped on the opportunity to share such a gift ?!
My birthday is on Sunday but I will be away in Canada with my family.
So today seemed like the perfect day top celebrate my Self !
Here I am in my Rock Fairy Uniform, featuring the beautiful, fluffy red tutu hand made by Deb !
David, my best cheerleader, but who I am sure thinks I am just a little nutso, helped me with the photo shoot ! (A little ?)
I even wrote a haiku in celebration of this sweet event :
The Red Tutu came
Full of love, laughter and fun.
My Self wore it well !
It was great fun to be silly, to not care about what anyone else thought and to just be me in all my Rock Fairy, Princess in a Tutu, 46 (almost) year old glory !
A funny thing happened too, as I was editing this crazy fun photos.
When I came to this photo, which I love, love, love…
I was instantly reminded of this photo I have blown up and sitting in my studio :
She is still in there, that 5 year old me. Shiny and bright, 41 years later.
Somewhere along the lines, she sure did learn the lesson well.
Use those wings, Beautiful Ones !
And a tutu too, if that works for you !
This is our one, precious life.
Let’s Live It Out LOUD !!!
Big Love !
