The Beginning of a New Season…

When the clock strikes midnight…


Hello, sweet friend…

What I Wear…

I hope you are well…

Heading out for a ’Girl’s Night Out’

I recently read that September has often been viewed as the beginning of the new year, the time for reflection and resolution…

turning over a new leaf…

a little curious I took a peek in my journal writings for January and noticed that my resolution for the new year was to be more intentional with how I lived…

desiring more time spent doing those things that I enjoyed…

most importantly staying open to positive change in my life…
