Condo Blues: Happy Birthday to Me

Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday.

I shed my little girl sawdust and paint splattered armor.

I put on a confident and frilly woman’s dress

I make a birthday promise to stop cursing my curves

and embrace them.

My black vintage dress makes me feel like Audrey Hepburn

with a modern women’s sensibilities.

I smile.

My new dress has a secret.

It helps women like Audrey did. Shabby Apple  donates 5% of its net sales to Unitus, a non-profit organization that gives micro loans to impoverished women. These confident women use the loans to start their own businesses to better themselves, their families, and the world around them.

All the outside world sees is my pretty birthday frock.

And I’m OK with that.
