We've got LOVE.

Today marks my 5-year wedding anniversary to the love of my life. I believe we are a picture of God's grace, and what it looks like in the context of marriage.

He brought us together for a purpose. We are living that out day-to-day.

This is dedicated to my best friend...


We've made it to our 1st 5 years babe. Feels like our 1st milestone as a married couple. I love this time of year. It reminds me of the day I unreservedly made a public covenant with you and God. Feels like  it was last week.

 I am so grateful for your smiles, your jokes, your "victory dances", your super tight hugs where you endeavor to "fuse us together"; I'm grateful for how nervous you always get for me right before a performance and how you HAVE to watch ALL my videos, even though you helped film them. Most of all, I am grateful for you; your strength of character is resilient & you are such a natural born leader; my leader. 

These last 5 years have helped me understand why LOVE has absolutely nothing to do with feelings.

Love is sacrifice. Love is forgiveness. Love is respect. Love is endurance. Love is discipline. Love is submission.

  Love can be ugly one day and bloom the next.

We have LOVE.

Because we have love, we have God. And because we have God, we have everything. 

Happy Anniversary to my knight in shining armor.   

I LOVE you. 

Yours Forever,

And above all these virtues, put on LOVE; which binds them together in perfect unity.

Inexpensive Fab!

Hi Everyone!

This is a look I sported the other night while on a date with my hubby! Hope you enjoy and are inspired!!

- Top: Goodwill Outlet (Less than $1)
- Skirt: Plato's Closet (Brand New for $8.00)
- Wedges: Traffic Shoe Store ($25.00)
- Quilted Purse: Thrifted ($2.50)
Earrings: Forever 21 (Old)

This petal design skirt accentuates the most flattering part of my legs. The silk blouse adds class and texture to this look and the quilted purse ties these two pieces together. Paired with wedges this look is "down-to-earth" in that anyone can sport it and feel confident, classy, and chic.

;) My Boo's Look:
Tribal Printed Tee: Forever 21 Men's
Grey Jeans: Forever 21 Men's
Black Dress Shoe: H&M

Popping In! :)

Hi everyone,

I have been working quite a bit on creative material that is forthcoming so naturally, updating you on what's been going on with me got neglected.

My YouTube channel has been taking off so I have been working on some new exciting content for it and trying to post there more frequently. (I will update you all on those details very soon!)


I did take some pics of a look I wore recently while out on a Saturday night with my hubby! I have more posts coming as well.

Enjoy and be blessed!!

Blouse: Marshall's: $12.99
Skirt: Target: $6.88
Quilted Purse: Thrifted: $2.50
Cream Sweater: Thrifted: $1.50
Nude Strappy Heels: Payless Shoe Store: $21.99

Thanks for reading my blog!!

My inspirational thought for today:

Don't let your past define your present or your future! In Luke 7:48 Jesus forgave a woman who was shunned by society because of her past transgressions. Society would not let her forget her sins or encourage her to become a better person.
Jesus saw past all her mistakes and said: "Your sins are forgiven". Jesus forgives ALL of your sins, and when He does don't pick them back up! Leave them where He eliminated them and keep moving forward and don't let anyone make you feel less than what He says you are! :)
