Yep It's my birthday. I'm 41. Time flies by. This "baby" picture of was taken when I was about 5 years old. This pic signifies the start of the love affair I had with turtleneck tops. I finally stopped wearing them when I was in my 30s lol

My mom wouldn't let me wear makeup until I was 18, but she never stopped me from wearing jewelry. I'm rockin' those huge earrings lol
