You forgot about me.

Have you ever heard the saying, “one year can change everything?” That’s what my 28th year of life was; it was the year that changed everything. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING. There isn’t an area of my life that was left untouched. It was a year that changed me in such a way that…

Women are nurturers by nature. There is something in us that calls us to take care of those around us. There’s something that beckons us to care, to help. Unfortunately, we often become the sacrificial lambs in our families and relationships. We are the mothers, the wives, the big sisters, the responsible ones and the…

Happy New Year!

  Hi all! Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2020! If you’re new to my blog, WELCOME! If you’ve followed my blog for a while, SORRY FOR THE WAIT! I took some time off from updating my blog to…LIVE. While I haven’t updated my personal blog much, I haven’t stopped writing and inspiring. Check…

I can’t be SUPER all the time

I am the ultimate “I got it” girl. You know those people who no matter how many times you ask, insists: ” no worries, I got it.” Even when I don’t really have it, I often find myself continuing on as if I can carry whatever is thrown my way with little or no help….

There goes that number 7 again!

My very first blog post was one of the hardest I’ve ever written. It was a post sharing when I found out about my breast cancer diagnosis; the seven days leading up to my diagnosis. In my post, I talked a lot about the significance of the number seven and how I’ve gone through life…

Will you be nursing?

There are a lot of things that have gone through my mind these past few months. This is not my first pregnancy. However, a lot has changed since I last gave birth ( 2012). My body has gone through so many changes. One topic in particular that has been tough for me is breastfeeding. I…

Oh, Baby!

My previous blog post sat in my “drafts” folder for months. Every time I felt like I was ready to share the post, I would chicken out. Honestly, I was embarrassed because I felt as if I had dropped the ball when it came to being my biggest advocate. What made me finally hit “post”?…

Scrambled Eggs?

I celebrated my 31st birthday last month (5/3). While I’ve always thought of my birthday as a “big deal,” I’ve found a new appreciation for the occasion since my cancer diagnosis. There’s nothing like having a doctor look you in your eyes and say, “we want to make sure you see 30,” to make you…

Just One Resolution

Many people have already written down the things they want to accomplish next year. I’ve never been big on resolutions because quite frankly they’ve always seemed so cliché. However, going into 2017, I’ve decided to write down just one resolution—LIVE! No, I don’t feel as though the end is near. I feel like I’ve gone…

In Sickness & In Health

The morning of my wedding it poured. The torrential down pour coupled with the wind made for a rough ride to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. You would have thought I would’ve been a nervous wreck considering the fact that my wedding was set to take place on the beach. I was calm. The rain…
