1994, only 32 years old. On my way to this convention in Phoenix in August and just hours before this picture my car broke down and a stranger helped me and my co-worker push it into a mechanic shop that thankfully was close by. I didn’t have the funds to fix it and had to call on family to help me pay for the new alternator.
The dress was borrowed from my lil sister @neisal because at the time, times were really hard for our family but this award was huge. 1994 Social Services Director of the year for the State of Arizona and I got a raise because of it.
We all go through hard times and it’s nice to share that with others to remind us life is not always perfect.
Looking through a box of old pictures today inspired this post. Thought I’d share this memory #insteadofadvertising#today#socialmediamarketing#instagram#advertsing#with#old#memories#100#years#ago#businessowner#sonpaises#boutique#poshmark#poshmarkerseller#from#douglasaz

I was just watching @kourtneykardash reflect on her 40th birthday and how she felt super anxious about not being as far along at life as she’d like to be. I felt that— like REALLY felt that. Of course you could laugh and say, “but she’s rich and beautiful, she has everything”. But Kourtney (and you and I!) are allowed to want more and to be working for more, no matter how old, successful, beautiful, wealthy, healthy... any of it. What I’m really learning is that no one is probably as far along as they want to be... and the truth is, it’s all okay. I think the joy comes in gratitude for what you do have and grace as you progress to your next evolution. Cheers to the weekend and reality tv for not being as shallow as people think it is 😂🖤🥂
New seasons bring new things. 🥰
Although I would say summer is my favourite, there’s something great about the beginning of anything new, including a new season.
Yes, fall doesn’t officially start until September 23, but I would say attending (and volunteering for) the fair this weekend made it feel like fall to me. 🌽
What event or thing marks the beginning of Fall for you?
