Buy the Pink Dress!


Happy Sunday! Before church, I sip my coffee and thank God for the usual:

My kids



The beach

I take another sip WAIT! My health!

I almost forgot, for years, I was so sick. Every morning I woke up like I had the flu, feeling like I was plugged into an electric socket being shocked, and burning like a match. I only weighed 105pounds! I was miserable.

But NO LONGER! Yesterday I found myself skipping the streets of Santa Barbara with a friend. As we walked by a vintage shop, a pink dress caught my eye. I threw a smirk at her and said. “What are you wearing to the wedding?”

I tried on the dress. I bought the dress.

Yes it is obnoxiously pink!

I could wear a dress from my closet, but just like the pink dress, I’m in a new season of cotton candy fun.

It could be sweet or sticky but I am willing to indulge in the gooey messiness.

What about you?

Dance more! Be silly more!

Buy the pink dress!

Ecclesiastes 9:7 “Seize life! …God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don’t skimp on colors and scarves.”

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have been single for the last twenty years raising my two beautiful children, Jake ( 26)and Tarah (25). I am a originally from Chicago but by listening to “The Whisper Within” I have recently moved to Southern California. I love to run, hike, bike, swim, and practice core yoga but have been sick for the last few years fighting Lyme disease. GOD will heal me but in the meantime, I choose to be happy and not settle for ordinary. I believe in the Fairytale, crave the butterflies, and surrender that God has the plan. Follow me on FB at The Whispers Within.

  1. Love the dress! Although I like my basic white or black t shirts I’ve always been fond of bright bubbly colors, especially those that make my skin really shine lol.


  2. I absolutely love this post! Yes, life’s too short not to find JOY in our lives, even in the smallest of things! (And it’s a gorgeous dress!!!) ❤
