Sleepless in Seattle

This is a little tale about my sweetheart. It’s also about learning how to love, how to forgive, and how to say yes to the things that may not be so popular.

Habits

Habits. We all  have them. Good or bad, there are always a handful of things that we just seem to do naturally. So I’ve made a little list to share with you all, but mostly to hold myself accountable for some of the good habits that I’d like to start this year!

Celebration

A week ago today, I celebrated a very special milestone. One that I have dreamt of since I was little. June 13th, 2016 marked the day that I began paving my way into the professional world. I celebrated my one year anniversary at my first full-time job as an advertising and marketing professional. 

Father’s Day.

I’ve spent the last 4 hours of this day scrolling through my social media feeds admiring happy family photos of my friends with their fathers.

Best Friends

Arizona State University — September 2012  I had just started my freshman year of college. What a time to be alive! I had just turned 18 and moved to Phoenix completely on my own. Many students were fearful to be completely on their own but I was ecstatic. School was just getting started so I…

Sit Down. Be Humble.

Today, I realized that it is so important to slow down, sit down, thank God for your blessings, and to be humble. I took a huge gulp of that sweet taste of reality this afternoon. Nothing is ever promised.  Life, being the ever so promising roller coaster that it is, threw a mean curveball today. My…

I’ve never experienced an all-inclusive getaway like this and I couldn’t be more thrilled! For five days and four nights, my boyfriend and good friend will set sail to…
