Is This Joy?

This morning I woke up happy. Genuinely happy. Like 'not a worry in the world' happy. And even if there are the tiniest of worries, they are so insignificant when compared to the magnitude of blessings that I have in my life. I cannot help but be happy. Is this joy? If so, I am …

Repetitive but Relevant

Do you ever find yourself saying the same thing over and over? Even if it's throughout the day, I often catch myself saying "Thank you, Jesus" as I walk throughout my home or office. It may be repetitive but it sure is relevant. I wake up excited about all of the things that are possible. The …

Not Bad for a Girl with No Creativity

This week alone, God has opened so many doors. Many of which, I still cannot see. However, like the old song says, "Jesus will!" I am so grateful for those that pour into me and speak life over me. I am thankful for the new relationships established within the last month that, for lack of …

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.

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 …

When the Mood Strikes

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 …

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 …
