OOTD: BDAY || 23 Earthstrong

23 years ago…August 18th at 7:04pm…a young G was born into the world.

A young Goddess that is…

And in this lovely season of the Leo, I celebrate my birth and another year dwelling in this beautiful Earthly realm.

I am entirely GRATEFUL.

Grateful to have family & friends that genuinely care about me.

Grateful to be living my life in the city I have always dreamed.

Grateful for vision, creativity, and inspiration.

Grateful for all the love in my life.

I am as passionate & inspired as ever to fulfill my God-given destiny in the Earth, and live my dreams in the process.

And as I turn 2-3

{2+3 = 5}

I thank the Almighty Creator for all the grace upon my life and this year shall be a year of success, freedom, joy, & loving light! I declare it!

THE DAY

Had a lot of birthday fun! Triiin gave me the royal treatment. From delicious breakfast in bed, home spa treatments, an impromptu BDAY photoshoot, a beautiful homemade cake of perfection, plenty of blunts, wine, & tango lessons! Not to mention a delicious gourmet dinner and awesome gifts. I truly felt like a Leo lioness Queen.

My family sent their beautiful birthday wishes such a manner that there was no way that I could not feel the love. They also sent me a b-day package that arrived perfectly on today, but my apartment manager left her office early, so I couldn’t get it 😦 . However I’m still happy about the package and so excited to see whats inside! My mom always sends something right on time that’s just what I want/need. Some intuition on that woman… not to mention our connection 🙂 . (P.S. since first starting this post I have seen whats in the package! &it was right-on-time gifts, as usual 🙂 ). It’s my first birthday that we haven’t been able to see each other and I miss ’em! But I know they were all with me in spirit.

IMAGE , my friend & an amazingly dope artist, also played a part in making my birthday special! Not only did he give me the gift of a beautiful piece of art to hang on my wall, he gave me a beautiful handmade necklace to serve as wearable piece of art as well! He also took Triiin & I for a lovely day of drinks, desserts, and good vibes 🙂
