How beautiful is my niece… seriously! Shout out to this baby doll. She runs around the house now saying “ Aunnie”and gives me the biggest smile ever. I loveeee her!!!!!


Hey beautiful friends, I had an eventful day today!  I was able to see some of my clients, I played with my beautiful niece, and my girl invited me to a boot camp class that was so intense! It felt so good to workout and burn some calories considering this winter has been entirely too cold to work out.  With that being said, I have lost 14lbs because I have shivered the weight off and my appetite has been poor.  I am supposed to work out again on Wednesday at 530am, ahhhh pray for me and that early class! I know it will be beneficial for me knowing I got my workout in!  Plus I need to get ready for the cruise next month. Yessssss.


Well I finally moved in my apartment downtown! I love it and I am so excited to decorate the apartment with my friend of 20 years who is now my roomie.  It is very nice to live with her because we challenge each other to grow and strive to become more Christ like.  I can tell God is working in our lives and we are excited for this journey and new chapter. 


I think it’s safe to say that this is the most single and independent that I have ever been in my life. AND I am ok with that.  Its crazy because I have always been courting or talking to someone and I think God has revealed to me that personal growth is important before entering into a relationship.  I have enjoyed this time because I have been able to stay busy by serving others and putting God first in my life.  I have promised myself that I will not enter into a relationship unless we are equally yoked.  I want God to be the center of my relationship.  I want his approval and I don’t want to just go off my emotions.  It will happen on his time! Until then, I am content with traveling, serving, and spending time with my awesome family and girlfriends.

Winter Wonderland

Ohhhh winter,

Wow, you have outdone yourself this year! This has truly been a winter that I will never forget.  I remember the storm back in 2009 during undergrad and how we all were stuck in the house for 3 full days… cabin fever for sure.  However,   I am grateful for this time off because I have been able to spend quality time with family and catch up on some personal time with the Lord…and if you look at my new year resolutions below, that was 2 goals of mine.  Now, I just have to keep it up!   

There’s only so much you can do around the house… I enjoy going to work, being out in the community and going to the gym! I really don’t watch a lot of television but here lately that’s been the move.  Lord, I am grateful for all seasons but I am excited for the spring to come!! 

When boredom strikes.....

I have been glued on the couch…. Mehhh but this hot chocolate was so delishhh.

  I am excited for my friends 25th birthday next month! We’re flying to Miami and going on a cruise to the Bahamas.  Now, I am pretty adventurous but this will be a huge step for me considering I will be stuck on a boat! lol..I know we will have fun and it will be something else I can check off in my twenties.  The Lord has blessed me to be able to travel and explore some of his beautiful creations and I am grateful for that.  I would love to go on a missions trip and serve and I have been praying for those opportunities to arise.  Until then, I will get involved in my city!  What have you been up to during this winter storm? I wanted to share this scripture as we remember our 2014 resolutions and new beginnings for this year. Xo!!! 

Isaiah 43:19
