28 Years Young

Yesterday was my birthday and because of where I am I want nothing more to just say thank you. I am having a mind-blowing month where seeds that have been planted for years are finally blossoming and it's nothing short of magical (I shall share-all shortly). And with that, I want to pay homage to some of the wonderful women who have sown into me knowingly and unknowingly.
