This dress has been sitting in my closet with tags for over six months. I got it with NYFW in mind, but since I ended up opting out this Fall season, it just remained there looking pretty. Last weekend it was my dad's 17th year death anniversary, and like every year, around that time I am not my happiest. This year though, was especially sad, as my mother was in a car accident that threatened to take her life, but our God is just so good, and not being done with her yet, He spared her. I have never felt more shocked and overwhelmed with both fear and gratitude. It puts into perspective how quickly we can lose a loved one, how quickly many of us have lost them, and how little time we have to cherish them. But the time we have is oh so precious, and I am so grateful for God's infinite mercy and grace that befall our family this weekend, but also every day. That to say, my weekend was spent quietly reflecting, and my husband wanted to do something special for me, so he surprised me with tickets to the Marc Anthony concert. It was by far the best performance I've ever been to, and I had so much fun dancing and singing along to songs that my mom and dad used to dance to when I was a child. It was absolutely a dream!
