Hello Summer

"Life, now, was unfolding before me, constantly and visibly, like the flowers of summer that drop fanlike petals on eternal soil." ―Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy

Summer is finally here, the kiddo is out of school, and I took my first vacation in a couple years. I was finally able to get away for a full week, to do nothing but relax and enjoy myself. Something that was much needed, and much appreciated. Last year, I had a vacation planned, but my daughter was hospitalized and we had to cancel. This year, after many days of praying, we made it. We went on vacation!

STOP Dreaming


Happy Thursday folks!  For me, today has been full of self encouragement, self motivation, and planning.  Lately I've found myself coming up with ideas and concepts, and then talking myself out of them for reasons to include: not enough time, I'm already doing too much, how will people receive my idea, etc.  Well, as of today, I decided that I will make the time, I'm not doing too much, and whether people catch on to the vision today, or tomorrow, they will catch on.  Having said that . . . . I'm going for it, and I encourage you to do the same.

Happy Sunday loves!  It's Mother's Day weekend and I thought this a great time to share my complete look from my cover shoot for my publication, Queen City Magazine.  If you haven't noticed yet, I absolutely love the color blush (and any pastel for that matter).

Queen City Magazine: Spring '17


It's finally here . . . . . I'm so excited to announce that Queen City Magazine is now a PRINT publication. Since the website launch last fall, I've worked hard and prayed about the direction of this venture and God made possible, what I had written off as impossible.
