Happy birthday to me! There are a lot of days that I look at myself in the mirror and it’s hard to comprehend that I’m beyond my mid-thirties now. I don’t mean this in a bad way but it still feels surreal that I’m now 36, married and a mother of 3 children. Anytime I tell my husband this, he looks at me like I’m crazy but it’s the truth. So what have these past 36 years brought me?
A lot of lessons, trials, tribulations, successes, failures, tears, laughter and more.

Happy Birthday To Me eShakti Style
One of the reasons I started sewing was because it was too hard to find clothes to fit my body after having children. As much as I love making new clothes, sometimes I just don’t feel like it. For my birthday this year, I ordered a piece from eShakti and now I’m questioning whether or not I need to feel pressed to sew for myself. This kimono-sleeved jumpsuit is EVERYTHING!!!
Ordering was so easy. I just took my measurements, plugged them in and my jumpsuit arrived a week later. When there was a question about my sizing, they shot me an email to clarify. And now I want to live in this jumpsuit because, well, see number 4. Happy birthday to me!
