It's my BIRTHDAY and I'm BACK!!

I know I have been on quite the hiatus. I ought to be ashamed of myself! What a hectic few months this has been.

For those of you who follow me on Instagram and Facebook know my family and I relocated from New York to Dallas 6 months ago. Let me tell you - that 6 months flew by! It feels like its only been 3 months. I have never made such a big move before so it was also a major adjustment for me. I miss my family and friends so much. This move was much needed for my husband, my son, and myself so we all could grow. I don't regret it at all.

Now let me tell ya'll - I have eaten some of the BEST. FOOD. EVER. Back home there are a lot of chains and your usual restaurants. Here there is always something different to try. The only restaurant I have on repeat is Pappadeaux and that's because I absolutely love seafood otherwise we try something new when we eat out. Speaking of seafood - all of my life I have HATED catfish. I thought it was so nasty until that beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon when my best friend took me to a spot that had the most amazing fried catfish. I couldn't believe it. I am officially a fan.

One of the toughest things for an entrepreneur moving across the country is basically starting your business from the ground up in a sense. Making new connections and networking has been a struggle because I am very much an introvert (believe it or not). One thing I can say for sure is my clients from New York did not let the distance keep them from getting their justVonne designs. Surprisingly, I get consistent orders from the East Coast which shocked me at first. That just let me know how blessed I am to have people that believe in me and want to see me to continue to grow.

Now - on to the fun stuff! My birthday photo shoot. I fractured my ankle Thanksgiving weekend which made it basically impossible to sew. I mean, it was possible but it was extremely painful. Once my ankle started to get better my wheels started spinning and I got my creative mojo back. I told my husband (who is also my photographer) that I have to make my comeback with more than one look. First I started off with 2 looks then the night before the shoot it was up to 4.

Take a look with what I came up with! #styleismylife #daretobedifferent
