Cheers! To Our Beautiful Energy

Last weekend, I traveled to Memphis for a beautiful wedding! It was a quick road trip filled with laughter and joy! When I returned to Baton Rouge, I couldn't wait to tell others about the festivities. The bride, my dear sorority sister, was gorgeous!! Her loving husband cried throughout the ceremony. The bridal party looked… Continue reading Cheers! To Our Beautiful Energy

Flowing From My Heart…

Gratitude comes in many forms. I am amazed at the infinite reminders that exist to prompt my heart to say 'thank you, Lord'. These instances stop me in my tracks, providing 'aha moments' of appreciation, realizing that He didn't have to do it, but He did. Understanding that I am blessed beyond measure, even when I… Continue reading Flowing From My Heart…

One Little Word® | 2018

This morning, I write. Fully caffeinated, joy-filled and blessed, I write. A foiled calendar hangs on the wall near my reading nook and I realize that today is January 19th. I've been pondering my word for a whole nineteen days! On second thought, I've pondered what to share regarding my word choice. At the close… Continue reading One Little Word® | 2018

A full to-do list greets me this morning, but I feel like writing. The day ahead is filled with wonder and amazement. I am hopeful to continue self-reflection and goal setting as I look at the year ahead. My futuristic 'what if' senses are tingling and excitement is in my bones.  Why? I honestly have… Continue reading When the Mood Strikes

I hope that you find ways to connect with the little things that keep you feeling good!… Continue reading Feelin’ Good


Creole Cowboy Casserole

I'm really bad at cooking. Correction. I can cook, but I'm really bad at making myself cook rather than spending money at various restaurants. This weekend's goal was to spend $0. So far, so good. Having that goal forces me to utilize what is in my kitchen to get creative. I stumbled upon a Pinterest… Continue reading Creole Cowboy Casserole

Good morning you beautiful people! Today is a "write through it" type of day. I woke up feeling really homesick. It seems to be out of the blue, but I've been working and traveling so much that this weekend has become the first of many moments that I've had to myself. When things get quiet,… Continue reading Grateful

Feed Your Focus

This morning I received a text that included a Bible verse about focus. The text was not surprising because the person sends them weekly. Think of them as weekly encouragement messages. (Shout out to Dan!) Today's note referenced 1 Samuel 30: 1-8. It said: "David's prompt to encourage himself in the Lord was provoked by… Continue reading Feed Your Focus



A reminder text alert woke me at the wee hours of the morning (11 AM). I jumped up, panicked. I hopped in the shower, quickly washed my hair, and hurriedly got dressed. My heart rate was elevated as I tried to figure out how I slept until 11 AM. How long would I have slept… Continue reading Seriously?!
