Hi everyone! Happy New Year! ๐Ÿ™‚

You can find Colleenโ€™s post HERE.

from embarrassment

wardrobe fail


I hope you enjoyed this short verse on the awkward moments of life ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. You’re not alone. I’ll hold your hand and sponge in some of your embarrassment. I’ve been there… Brush it off, the blush comes from the color, no? Yes! Lovely, Harmony. Thanks for sharing.

    • Brush it off! Love it. Thanks, Selma. And hand holding is always welcome ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™‚

    • Amazing how many decades those blushes can last for! Happy to have made you laugh. Thanks, Diana ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Been there, done that, lol. Thanks for the awkward memory, Harmony ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This reminds me of a certain Superbowl game here a few years back when Janet Jackson had what they called a ‘wardrobe misfunction’ ๐Ÿ˜‰
