Here’s to 2015.

Well, as promised — the holidays are over & I’m back, y’all!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas (or whatever holiday you & yours celebrated.)

I can’t believe how fast the it went… Wednesday is already New Years Eve – what???

Looking back on the year, there were highs & then there were lows. But hey, that’s life, right? All you can do is learn from your mistakes and realize that no one is perfect. Sometimes, the wrong choices bring us to the right places.

“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”

I know my number one resolution is to continue to chase my dreams – do good in school & work even harder to achieve total greatness and just flourish.

Speaking on terms of the new year, what are everyone’s resolutions?

Whatever you do, don’t say “omg, new year, new me.I will slap you 10 ways to Sunday. I don’t know why that statement irks my nerve so much. I guess because in my eyes, it’s not about being a “new you” per say – it’s more about bettering yourself, building upon your flaws, and working towards prosperity.

Happy New Year – wishing you all good health & happiness for the year to come! xo

Still breathing.

Sorry for the lack of persistent posting, my fine people. First, it was finals – now, the holidays are in full swing and I’m feeling a tad bit overwhelmed (to say the least.) I barely have time to breathe, let alone write a worthy post.

Are we all stressing ourselves out about finishing up last minute Christmas shopping? Christmas is next week! Oh my lanta – where does the time go? I feel like it was just Thanksgiving… No?

Really though, this is hardly a post. I just wanted to inform my followers that, yes I am still alive & as soon as Christmas is over (maybe sooner) I will be back with some witty words and thoughts to entertain you all with.

Happy holidays (happy shopping)!

Forever missing Joey, the limo driver.

Some days are worse than others, but around the holidays are when times get tough.

I had a special relationship with my grand pop – one that every little girl dreams of. Matter of fact, I rarely ever referred to him as “grand pop.” It was always Joey (and he loved it.) Joey’s grandchildren (all 21 of us) were his world, he lived & breathed for us… his pride & joy.

Although Joey passed away over a year ago, I constantly feel him around… especially when I wear his favorite flannel (which happens to be right now.)

I miss him immensely & wish for him back every day, but there’s something so unspeakably comforting having him up there, rooting me on, guiding me in the right path, watching me accomplish my dreams.

P.s. When I start to feel him around, the lights go dim… Ironically, as I’m writing this post, the lights suddenly went dim.

Shout out to my favorite guardian angel xo
