Before the party

Party Dress

Do you ever have that moment when, as you’re getting ready to head to a party you suddenly feel shy and awkward? It happens to me sometimes, particularly if I know I won’t know a lot of people there. As a child I was painfully shy. The thought of meeting strangers paralyzed me. Upon arriving anywhere new, I’d hide behind my mother and try and keep her from leaving, or look for a corner where I could disappear. But when my Mom would come to pick me up, I’d be happily playing with the other kids, or even leading them in my favorite games of make-believe. As an adult, I’ve mostly overcome it; people who know me can’t believe I was ever shy. But to this day, I have to reassure the little girl inside of me that she doesn’t need to look for a corner in which to hide, that it’s going to be fun, and people are going to be warm and welcoming. And it almost always is. And they almost always are.


…of course, it always helps to be wearing a fabulous new party dress and amazing new shoes!
