In 1997, just before I turned 21, I got a Full time job that paid almost 2/3 an hour more than the two part-time minimum wage jobs I had before that. 


I redid my room in a more adult motif including a sofa bed so during the day it didn’t look like a bedroom and black lacquer furniture. My friend Diana made the blue heart shaped Christmas wreath that matched my couch with all of my Christmas teddy bears sitting on top of it. 


In 1988 I entertained friends for the first time at Christmas with my full-size tree, very formal looking & decorated with pink and gold ornaments including a few from Neiman Marcus.


I had truly arrived!
