Well, the time has come AGAIN where absolutely none of my jeans or shorts fit me anymore. Not a bad problem to have, except for when you’re poor 😂 Soooo I HAD TO treat myself 🤷🏼♀️& I have no buyers remorse after trying on my new @americaneagle jeans and shorts that arrived in the mail today 😍

I remember when I was still a young girl my family would always attend or host house parties. I learned everything I know about community around that time. We Lucians 🇱🇨 were close knit so I got to experience many late night parties where there was always tasty food & drinks, great conversation & laughter, music & of course dancing. I recall around that time as I got older, I hit my rapid 2 year growth spurt & already towered over most, those were my junior high years. The parties were always fun!! I always got to dance with my Dad who was such a great dancer that everyone wanted to dance with him. He was a handsome 6'3", taller than me & he taught me how to dance as a couple. Other than that, every once in a while, someone tall like me would ask me to dance which mean't I got to test my dance moves. Most of the time however, I sat or stood on the side waiting for my turn as I watched all the average height teenagers & women get asked to the dance floor. I loved my soca music, so I often stood there eagerly awaiting my turn until one day at a still tender age "my song" came on & I just couldn't wait anymore. I threw my hands in the air & with that now familiar phrase I exclaimed "woyyyy" & in that moment the wait was over. With excitement & abandon, I danced out onto the floor & danced with ME! It was the sweetest dance. I no longer cared to wait for a tall guy to ask me to dance, I just wanted to dance & so it was at that party in the wee hours of the morning that I let that hang up go & danced alone & yet completely free & happy to be me. It was the most freeing moment I remember. The rest of that night & every party thereafter, I just danced if I wanted to among all the dancing couples I towered over. Some would laugh when I would accept a dance from a guy who only reached my armpits & the two of us would laugh too but you know what, I DANCED! Experiences like these helped me grow into the woman I am today. In that moment of my youth I owned my height & who I was & I celebrated it within myself & outwardly where anyone could see. This is who I am.
