Dine With MDoll @ BELLINI
Dress by Lulus.com
I am grateful because, i looked around and said to my self why be sad and cry over one person who hurt my feelings, i am blessed daily by God and loved by my awesome friends and these 13 fabulous people who joined me for dinner at Dine with MDoll on September 9th.
The Night was filled with so much empowerment, sharing stories of how each one have met me and how i met them and what have inspired me from each and one of my guests and friends, we also took lots of pictures, held hands and payed together, thanking God for the amazing things he does in our life everyday and the dinner we received that night.
My friend Alex give me a personal toast at the table that brought tears to my eyes, and also Ruben and just the beautiful kind words everyone shared about me, made me realize how special i am to many and the kind heart that i have that have impacted many. My friend Dara made everyone a friendship bracelet that had their initials on them.
My main concept and idea for this dinner was to also Thank them for being there for me because i had one of the hardest and saddest times last year from November and moving forward during the year, from the shocking situation with my husband, loosing my step dad last December and at times i even felt like i was loosing my self at some point that i wanted to stop blogging and stop pursuing my dreams, but someone how each one of these guest cared for me, call me, text me, invited me on a dates, listen to me when i cried, needed to vent or just a to take a walk in the city and shop etc.
This was my way to empower them and say Thank You because i was truly grateful and what better way to kick off NYFW on a positive and fabulous note with friends.
