Worst vacation ever? 

Our trip to Cancun. It was like the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, just to the beach. Everything that went wrong did. But, my husband and I had each other and we made the best out of every day!

When in your life have you felt the loneliness?

Going through my divorce. 
I know some people are probably wondering why when I have some good friends and family. 

They weren't there with me during the day to day things like waking up at night with my baby girl and paying the bills and making sure she had everything she needed. It was hard and I was quite lonely!

Hard. My life has been hard. 
From deaths in the family, to suicides, to fighting depression, to moving away, to rumors causing strife in my life, to marriages, to divorce, to birth, to raising a daughter on my own for a while, to getting into debt, to trying to work myself out of debt, to struggling with weight loss... hard. 

But so worth it.

Happy Mothers Day...

Motherhood is hard.
Motherhood is messy.

Motherhood is exhausting.
Motherhood is challenging. 
Motherhood is terrifying.
Motherhood is emotional. 
Motherhood is scary. 


It is also beautiful.
It is also wonderful.
It is also incredible.
It is also worth every second. 
It is loving one human for the rest of your life.
It is worrying about one human for the rest of your life. 
It is never giving up for this human for the rest of your life. 

I am so thankful that God choose my momma to be mine. And I am so thankful he choose me to be my kiddo's momma.

Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful momma's out there. I pray that God will bless your day...

Who is the person you have learned the most from in life?

This gal feels old...

It is now May.

The picture below is probably one of my FAVORITE pictures of all time. 
It was during Easter when I visited home and my sister Michelle, along with my first niece Julia used Cadbury Mini Eggs and used them as lipstick. It was a fun day and this is just one of the many fun memories we have made. 

That being said... my very first niece Julia is graduating from High School at the end of this month and man, time really does fly by so fast. We blinked and she is grown and has turned into a beautiful young lady. I am so proud of her for all she has accomplished so far in her life time. I know her future is going to be amazing.
