Happy Monday Luvs, Just wanted to take some time and share with you how proud I am to be a Blogger and to be able to share my voice with all of you. When I first started blogging the only thing that was really on my mind was to be able to talk shoes and dresses and maybe get a couple of each for free. I am thrilled to say my blog has blossomed into so much more than I ever dreamed and my latest coverings are examples of that!
A little over a week ago I received an email inviting me to attend the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce Women of Distinction Awards Breakfast. I was honored to be invited because for the most part my blog doesn't focus much on local events and for the longest I've been saying I want to change that and actually become more involved in my community. Clearly someone heard my cries!

Fast forward a few days and there I was sitting front and center during Women's History Month at an awards breakfast honoring 10 amazing women for their lasting contributions to business and our South Florida Communities. These women are Moms' Wives, Leaders and more and taught me during this breakfast that nothing is impossible. I swear it was like I was just meant to be at this breakfast and hear these inspiring women speak. I can't even recall the last time I was inspired as much as I was after the awards ceremony ended. One of my goals from Friday morning on is to one day become a Woman of Distinction Honoree myself. Who knows, just maybe I'll be the first blogger to make the list. This year the Frugal Flirty N Fab is all about being able to use my voice for good and that's what being a Woman of Distinction is all about.

Just when I thought things couldn't get any better a friend notified me she'd seen me on the news when they were showing a clip of news anchor Danielle Knox being honored for her acknowledgement. I immediately hit the world wide web and was able to locate this clip. Not qute a Mama I made it moment but close enough in my book at least.
