ONCE UPON A TIME By Lori A Alicea

Dedicated to every little girl, young or young at heart, who has always wanted to be that beautiful little princess, but needed someone to remind them that
a princess, they’ve always been.

Dedicated especially to the little girls in this grandmother’s life:
Brooke, Bristol, Ayva, Aubrey, Cova, Rosalee, and Kizzie Mae.
May they always know.

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there hides a place too beautiful for words, a place where everything sparkles in all the rainbow colors, especially butterflies that leave behind a diamond mist of fairy dust wherever it waves its wings.
2019 cumbee ayva princess 19The gates of this far away land only open when little girls sleep, where dreams of becoming a princess really do come true.
2019 cumbee ayva princess 31Dreams grant every wish that little girls have; dreams of that grand entrance through the gates of a royal ball, where every eye is fixed on her loveliness, facing the crowd in a dress befitting a princess, full of glitter and sparkle.

Prior to this grand entrance every princess enjoys a day of pampering at a Princess Boutique, where her highness is surrounded by many hands privileged to open up her exquisite beauty as the sun does to the petals of a rose.

Lipstick, cheek color and eye shadows together create the stunning look that royal watchers wait hours for with cameras ready when princesses take their stately walk on the red carpet.

2019 cumbee ayva princess 14Never truly believing her royal status until a blue diamond crown with her name attached lay waiting to be worn when a princess takes that special place at her reserved seat.
2019 cumbee ayva princess 28Nothing is more befitting than when you wear the crown of who you were born to be; a princess of the royal ball hidden in your heart, lived out in your dreams.
2019 cumbee ayva princess 20Every fairy tale has a special someone who is part of your “happily ever after”. Little princesses have fairy godmothers who love them their whole life, teaching, showing and reminding them every day how special they are.
2019 cumbee ayva princess 22Even when a fairy godmother kisses her little princess at the ball,
2019 cumbee ayva princess 30The princess doesn’t awake from her dream, as the ball was never a dream after all.
2019 cumbee ayva princess 31You see, Once Upon A Time in a land far, far away, there hides a princess too beautiful for words, a little girl who sparkles in every color of the rainbow, who has to believe in her princess status that rests in a faraway place of her heart, though maybe having to open the gates to this faraway place in her dreams to remember.
