Time Away…


First of all luvs, thank so much for all the comments, Tweets, Instagram and Facebook love on my news from a few weeks back!

There are so many details to figure out and I am faithful that God will provide everything with finances and housing.

If you want to help out with your spare change, please visit here.

At any rate, I need to take a few weeks away from here so I can work on my next steps.

I still be blowing up social media and hope to return back here soon with a brand new designed site and content!

Be well my luvs!


{VLOG} Rome wasn’t built in a day…

or logistically planning a move 1,000 mile away in a few weeks.

I know this is God’s will and the beginnings of the next chapter for me.

I know it’s not going to be easy but the rewards are high.

Excuse my pride, but I’ve worked hard for this.  When I was rejected from the first graduate school I applied too, I was devastated.

I felt stupid, not good enough, not smart enough.

So I reached out to two more schools.  One would of kept me here, one would take me to Boston.

I was dealing with a transcript issue with the local school when my acceptance came in the mailbox.

As I tore open the envelope and saw the words “Admitted”, I started shaking.

ME?!  Accepted to a fairly new graduate program at one of the top women’s colleges in the country.

I skipped into my house and told my mother.

And to her credit, as much as it saddens her that once again I need to flee the nest, she said,

“This is an opportunity, figure out a way to make it happen.”

If you can give me 25 cents or more, please visit this link or click the widget on my sideboard.

Have a great week!



Dreams do come true…

If you have followed me on this blog for a while, you know I have had a lot of ups and downs.

My faith has remained strong always but after leaving the teaching field in June, I had to be strong and patient as I waited on the next adventure to be revealed.

I am so thrilled:

So much to do in a very short amount of time! If you have any advice or resources for my big move to Boston, MA I would certainly appreciate it!

Happy Tuesday!


Hair Adventure: Ombré

I was long over due for a hair adventure. Usually that would result in me chopping it off, I have had many a pixie cut as a result  many times in the past.

While pixie cuts are super adorable, they are a pain in the arse to grow out!

I’ve tried highlights and lighter all over color.

Then I met my current stylist, Holiday over at Adorn Salon & Boutique and he is loads of fun!

He’s also a genius and really understands hair and hair color.

I had him dye my hair with demi-permanent dark brown color in February to cover my grey hairs.

It looked pretty amazing but once summer hit, I was feeling a bit adventurous.

We are working together to grow it to about my collar bone so I didn’t want to chop it so we decided to have a little fun with some bleach and lowlights thus resulting in ombre!



I’ve enjoyed it so far and was told it will lighten further and look more awesome as my hair grows!

What do you think?

What has been your latest hair adventure?


{5 on Friday} Summer Lovelies

Happy Friday luvs!

June just seems to be flying by!

Next week is the 4th of July!  Can you believe it?

Five Summer Lovelies

{one}  Fresh Flowers

I cannot get enough of fresh flowers all year around but I love that my favorite, the peony is in season right now.  Sunflowers come in at a close second and they will cheer any room right up.


{two}  Being Barefoot

Anyone who knows me that I’m barefoot (indoors) most of the year.  But summer allows me to do it outside and a lot!

I love spending time on our screened in porch.  It will be one of the many things I miss once we sell our house.

Lipstick Jungle

The Fault in Our Stars

Have an amazing weekend!


{Cooking Barefoot} Spinach & Cheese Quiche

I enjoy many of these but my favorite is my mother’s Spinach & Cheese Quiche because it warms my heart and my tummy.

She’s made this dish every week for as long as I can remember.
