This topic has been on my heart and my mind for months and – maybe even years if I truly put it on a timeline. The topic is broad but it centers around modesty, attitudes, and how we treat others. As I begin to write this post I’m backspacing and trying to find the right words for what I want to say. Modesty is a topic that is very important to me because as a teenager and into my early 20’s I lived as a Pentecostal woman. I learned to love my makeup free face and my long skirts. I…

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Why? Because it’s a fresh start and a new beginning for everything around us. I have two favorite times of year, Fall & Spring.  Fall is the end of the year and Spring is the beginning of the year in my mind. Do you ever want to start fresh?

I can’t say I’m one of those moms…

Tuesday and Wednesday are a slight improvement in my general appearance and by Thursday and Friday I have it down and I will probably look pretty decent. Appearance is everywhere I go and everywhere I look outside of my own bathroom mirror. If I have a meeting I figure I better…

So, I’ve said before that turning 30 fueled the blog. I’ve been thinking of writing out life, my thoughts, and experiences for awhile now but for some reason just figured that it had no point. It may not, but regardless I have this new passion to share in hopes of making someone, anyone have a better day. I also have this new sense of weird wonder (I’m saying this with a very magical tone in my head right now). I wonder if anyone else has felt this way? Well, since turning 30 there has been this invisible light switch inside…
