March 2017

It is so hard to believe that it is already March. Where has all the time gone?
I am still trying to catch up.

Our First Home

Having a home has always been a dream of mine. A dream that pulled on my heart strings the more I watched “Fixer Upper” and scrolled through Pinterest’s “Home Decor” tab. For a while, it didn’t seem like a tangible/possible thing.

But what do I know?

Skin Colors

I am a brown woman, married to a peach (sometimes red) man. Raising an olive baby girl.

I am a brown woman teaching in an inner city classroom filled with  12 brown kids, 2 olive kids & 1 peach kid.

In all of my hours in the classroom, not one of those students have ever mentioned the color of skin.


Because it doesn’t matter.

This current season of life has been SO hard.

When things are difficult it is easy to get emotional & to react based on those emotions, which is exactly what I’ve been doing. Why have I been acting this way? Well, I am a planner. I like control & I like having some idea of where my path is leading. One of my biggest struggles has been letting go of my need for control & letting God do his will.

Fresh Start

I may not be the best person for this, but I have felt a huge tug on my heart to share bits & pieces of my life as a form of restoration. I have been so indecisive about what it is going to be called & what it is going to look like instead of focusing on myself & the healing process it can bring.

So here I am again. Focused on learning, growing & healing. I am here to share my love for Jesus, family, Miami, donuts & life the only way I know how… by being simply myself.
