Savor your tan lines

Posted on

The past two weekends  I have been laying out. Being blessed with brown skin, a tan has never been a problem. (Sorry white girls) I have been trying to be skin conscious due to wrinkles and skin cancer, but after one day of Sun... I can't get over  my tan lines.
 I love them. 
I've missed them. 
So since  summer is coming to a close...girls....savor your tan lines. 


Best advice I've ever recieved

Posted on

Blogtember Day 3 - Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered.
I remember it like it was yesterday. It was the homecoming highschool footbal game where i ran into my old principal. We chatted and caught up about how I was doing in college, and I told her about my struggles with my major. I had originally gone to college for criminal justice. i wanted to be a homicide detective. She told me no matter what I decided to do, switch my major, or stay in it, that everyday when I go to work, I have to love what I do. Other wise, it would make it seriously hard to get up in the morning. Then she told me if I ever wanted to be a teacher, I would always have a job at my old highschool. That next year- I came home and enrolled in design school and that summer i met my husband. I never had a doubt in my mind after that chat. I was in the wrong major. Thank you, Mrs. Merriman for helping me make one of the best desicions I've ever made.

Three months off, sure will // a giveaway

Blogtember Day 2: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?
I know that the majority of people will instantly say "I would travel the world." I honestly would love to travel, But realistically, I'd wish I had done something else.
I would take the time to start and polish the kick off of my own residential design firm. I have always played with the idea of starting my own company as a side gig. Something to keep me busy, to flex my creative muscles, and to make a little extra money on the side. My heart will always yearn for designing things that have my name on it from start to finish. Although I am slowly but surely in the process of starting my own business, I would take those three months to plan, advertise, and design. Starting with my own house, then slowly start to build clientle.
Here goes nothing...a "giveaway of sorts"...
If you are interested in working with me, I would love to work with you!

Two years ago, I married this man. The best and easiest descision I have ever made. No matter what life throws at us, I know he will always be at my side.
You have made me stronger, and love deeper than I ever thought possible. I know our life isn't perfect, and I'm still learning to embrace that. As I told you once before, you are rooted in my soul...and you always will be. You are my home, my heart, and my life.
Thank you for being you.
I love you Handsome.
Happy Anniversary

It would make a pretty good story...
