Let me introduce myself. Hello, my name is Sonya and I’m an aspiring seamstress on a journey to learn to sew and in the process stay healthy and get fit. I know sounds interesting, doesn't it, that's exactly what I thought...LOL!!!
I've been married 20 plus years now; we have 3 adult children and five awesome grandchildren. I know what you’re thinking; she can’t possibly be a grandmother, she’s just 25 years old...thank you so much for the compliments, flattery will get you everywhere. Keep it coming…LOL!
In 2011, I started out on a journey to get healthy. I had just completed my degree, and I was at the heaviest weight I had been my whole life. I quickly realized being healthy and fit is going to be a lifestyle. The most important thing I learned in this journey is that I didn’t gain the weight overnight, it was a process, so losing it and keeping it off will be a lifelong process too. Now don’t get me wrong, I am also losing weight so I can be smokin’ hot in all these cute garments I’m going to sew.
Now my sewing journey began in high school; you know the class they force you to take as an elective. Well for me it stopped there even though my mother was a seamstress. Now, I'm not what most would call a fashionista, but I love clothes and I want to look nice in them, especially the garments I sew for myself. Hard to explain the feeling you get when you can wear something (in public) you created. You just have to trust me and go buy that sewing machine and get started.
So, we’ve made this awesome and cute new wardrobe, what do we do next? We travel. If I could be on a forever vacation I would. No questions asked. I’m on the go a lot now but this is nothing if I could retire today.
So join me on this awesome journey as we sew together, get healthy and fit together and travel together.
