Skirt// ASOS
Sandals// Target 


Ain't no joke!!

Y'all we have 6 days to go and I wish we had none. And I feel bad about feeling this way. 


I absolutely need a break. I don't have to tell you this but the hard working teachers are exhausted and tired and worn out by the very last day of school. This year back in high school was filled with highs and lows. It was blessed but challenging.  Whew (wipes sweat from brows)!


I'm proud of what I've accomplished this year and the lives I've touched. There were days I had to roll up my sleeves and dig in deep to educate, inspire and transform not just the kids but ME.

Unfortunately, I didn't win them all over. I struggle a great deal with this. Even with the assurance that I did all I could and pushed and pulled and sometimes scolded and cried for and with my students. I'm ready to take off my super teacher cape, get some rest and come back rejuvenated. 

Here's to school being out for the summer **starry eyed**!

Jump In

I have been shopping for a jumpsuit since forever. I saw this months ago in Target and walked away from it. During springbreak I was in Tallahassee at Target with Mother and saw it again. Unfortunately they didn't have the size she felt would be appropriate. So I walked away again.
Lolol and behold,  I made a Target run for sonething I really NEEDED #donteventryit #addicted and they had a fresh stock. I rarely pay price for items but this was a must. After wearing it to church Sunday and receiving  tons of compliments, I knew it was a winner. Now I'm on the hunt for a casual one.

Happy Mother's Day

Her children arise up, and call her blessed;  her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Blushing

 

blush: noun rosy or pinkish tinge.



 
Blouse// Very Old
Skirt// Nordstrom Rack
Shoes// Aldo (old)
Clutch// gifted
 

I've been wanting to add this color to my closet for a while. I finally found the perfect skirt (pleated & blush colored) last year and I'm not sure why I didn't wear it. Initially, I had planned to wear it for Easter but went with the tulle skirt here. I knew I wanted to wear nude but didn't want to hide my new DIY pedicure shared on Instagram. My pumps are closed toe but fabulous. Lol! 

I was tempted to buy shoes until I recalled that I had these oldie but goodies still in the box. They are actually back in the store in spring colors. I have a weakness for Aldo! #shoeaddict

After seeing these photos, I started to regret that I didn't wear this look on Resurrection Sunday. Guess that's what happens when you have too many options. Although I don't believe my closet is overstocked..com

Can we say denial kinda sorta?  Blushing...

We Believe.

How was your Easter? If you follow my Instagram {{link below}}, you know I ended up on the beach after attending 8 AM. Service was good. Bishop said something on Good Friday that has resonated with me. He said, without the cross we wouldn't have Christmas, one of our most celebrated holidays. The truth is Christ wasn't born so we could celebrate His birthday but he came to die. That was his misson and it was completed! Amen.

Michael W. Smith has a song titled "Above All" that is so moving and humbling. The chorus:
Crucified
Laid behind the stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all


When I consider the meaning behind these words, I can't help but feel so blessed to have accepted the gift of salvation. I believe that Christ died on a cross and arose three days later. No man will ever display that kind of love for me and my son.


Our choir sings a celebratory song  by Eddie James titled "He's Alive". When they get to the chorus, the congregation turns up because we do believe He's alive. 

He rose 
In Glory 
With all power 
And authority 
He conquered 
My enemies
And He put them 
Under my feet 


If you haven't accepted this free gift TODAY is a good day. He will change your entire life. #guaranteed

Shades//Versona
Blouse// Jcpenny
Clutch//Aldo
Skirt//Windsor Store online
pumps//Marshalls

As for me and my house, we believe in God the Father. We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe in the Holy Spirit. He has given us new life.  WE BELIEVE! And for that we rejoice on Easter Sunday and all the days in between. 

1 Corinthians 1:18New International Version (NIV)

Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
