Happy new year everyone! Eleven days in and this is my first post of the year. Whoa! I really need to make some blog adjustments this year. So while everyone else is trying to keep their resolutions or goals, I just came up with one motivational word for the year and that word is Live. You may be asking why live?

Update: Life Will Go On.

I know things have been a little quiet around here lately.  Life has been one crazy roller coaster after another.  I can barely go on my computer to post on my blog without any distractions (have so much on my mind!!) and most days, I can barely make out a complete sentence when I'm either speaking or writing. If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and/or Facebook, then you know I'm pretty active in those areas but when it comes to attending blog events or writing on my blog, I just … [Read more...]

A Love Letter To My One and Only Love.

You know me. I usually don't put our personal life out on the internet. It's our private life and no one needs to know our business.  But this time is different.

Happy Easter All!
