To Infinity….

It’s been waaaaay too long…. I’ve been gone for so long from my blog, that it’s unacceptable. But to my defense, I’ve been busy falling in love with someone I’ve known for a long time; an amazing man. The man of my dreams 😍. As of late, I’ve been the happiest I’ve been in a…

Childhood Memory: Upper Marlboro Day!

For most people, once they become an adult, it’s hard to remember events from your childhood. I vaguely remember much of mine, but one tradition that I fully remember is going to the Upper Marlboro Day Festival every year. Upper Marlboro Day was a day of festivities in the small town of Upper Marlboro, Maryland….

An Open Letter to My Seester

An 8 year gap… We all know how it goes; you’re riding high as the only child and then BAM! you’re parents get knocked up. I went from being the only child for 8 years to having 4 siblings over the course of 7 years. It was a lot to take in and a lot…

Moody As F#@k!

Aw man! It’s been a rough few days. My mood has gone from one extreme to the other. I’m usually pretty mellow and calm (thanks LexaPro!) but yesterday and today, I was NOT feeling it. The slightest thing annoyed me. My irritation level was on 100%! I don’t like being like that. I really don’t…

Connections….

It’s very hard to find a connection with someone who is genuine. A connection where every conversation is nothing but laughter, sincerity, happiness and joy. You can’t find that in a lot of people; especially people of the opposite sex. Not many people are genuine and often have ulterior motives. So, when you come across…

Switch It Up

Put down the remote and pick up a book!  Sounds crazy that those words are coming out of my mouth. But the older I get, the less I’m interested in what’s on the tube and the more I care about what’s going on around me. My Mentor, for a new project I have involved myself…

Follow the Signs

They are everywhere. Even when you least expect them, something pops up, subliminally, to guide you. Whether it’s a decision that needs to be made, or a particular path you should take; never ignore the signs. You may or may not believe them, but they are real. It only takes one situation, one sign, to…

Dare I Ask: What If…..?

Have you ever wondered to yourself, “what if I did this differently?” or “what if I’d made this decision instead of that decision?” People are quick to hit you with the “everything happens for a reason”comment, and while I do agree that this statement is VERY true, lets pretend that everything DIDN’T happen for a…

Love Languageο»Ώs

Ever wonder what your core needs are when involved in a relationship? What truly works to keep you happy with your significant other? I would have never thought of taking this test, until it was pointed out by a friend that I should try it, so I can see what I crave or what my…

Confidence Is Key πŸ”‘Β 

I mentioned something in my post last night that prompted me to write this post today. I spoke about my lack of self-esteem and how my confidence was on the rise again. In this posting I wanted to further explain how I got to this point in my life- where my confidence is now in…

Phase 10 with Friends!Β 

Phase 10 is by far my favorite card game to play with friends. It gets tricky when you play with competitive people. It gets intense! I myself am a sore loser and I’m very competitive. This game could make or break friendships! It’s that damn serious. Every Wednesday or Thursday night, my friends and I…

Valentine’s Day BluesΒ 

WELP, it’s February 1st. You know what that means! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner… Yes, I am about to be one of those people. The one who has a “woe is me” pity-party about this overrated “holiday” (that’s just the bitterness talking). But seriously, I just want to feel loved too! Who come…
