• IT'S • A • NEW • DAY •
As we experience the transition of power in Washington DC, there's a heaviness that's being lifted off of these United States. The keyword is UNITED! It's time to come together, treat others as you would want to be treated, and support our new President Joe Biden and OUR Vice President Kamala Harris.
BE GREAT! TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES! And take care of OTHERS!!!

• COURAGE •
Did you know courage is grace under pressure??? BELL, BIV, DEVOE... NOW YOU KNOW!
Keep applying pressure people! Just when you thought they weren't watching... OH THEY'RE WATCHING! When you think it'll never pay off, KEEP PUSHING!! When you get tired in race, KEEP RUNNING!
Don't forget to be REAL CA-UUUUUUUTE while you do it!!

• WE • THE • PEOPLE •
This very country is just like the fabric of this dress/duster - it's made of MANY COLORS! One-color isn't greater than the other but when treated EQUALLY, it can become the Master's PEACE!!!

• 10 • MORE • MINUTES •
With being a wife, mother, full-time caregiver of two individuals and 2 fur babies, finishing up my Master's, and working on projects that align with my purpose and passion, I need every minute of the day to get things done.
But what I've learned in this season, is to give myself some GRACE. It's OK to take a few minutes to do absolutely NOTHING on my "TO DO LIST"!
If that means sitting still for a few minutes, watching something on TV that makes me laugh out loud (It's Ridiculousness for me!🤣 DON'T JUDGE ME😜), or taking 10 thousand selfies on the couch... JUST DO IT!
Life is too short not to sit back and enjoy the little things! Give yourself 10 minutes in everyday! YOU DESERVE IT!!!

• WHAT • IT • IS • vs. • WHAT • IT • WAS •
You ever find a piece you absolutely love buuuuuuut there's that ONE THING you wish you could change about it? Whelp... THIS WAS THAT THING! When I saw this sweater @lanebryant, it was colors for ME! However, the original length didn't sit well on my shelf 😉 (you know what I'm talking about). So I thought 🤔💡🤗.... THIS WOULD BE A DOPE DUSTER!!! I waited until it went on sale for 50% off and BOUGHT TWO!
MORAL OF THE STORY: Never settle for what you see, GO FOR WHAT YOU WANT!!!
Thank you Ms. B!!!! Best seamstress eveeeeeer!!!

• HAPPY • NEW • YEAR •
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book waiting to be written. What options do we have? THEY'RE ENDLESS! Which way to go? THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED! Is it the right time? THERE'S NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT! What about my fears? FAITH OVER FEAR - DO IT ANYWAY! Am I good enough? OH HELL YEAH!!! IN 2021, BE THE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST!!!

• YEAR • END • REVIEW •
2020 was a WHOLE LOT OF THINGS, but I'm grateful to still be here. We have to accept this year for what it was and take all the golden nuggets it's given us (some by choice and others by force). What will 2021 bring? I don't know, but I'm trusting that He who knows all things has BETTER in store for us all!

• TRUE • BEAUTY •
There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.

• FROM • OUR • FAMILY • TO • YOURS •
Family isn't always blood. It's the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and love you no matter what. THIS IS OUR FAMILY!
As dysfunctional as we are 😜, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world! Remember the true reason for this season. Give the gift of love, laughter, understanding and cherish EVERY MOMENT!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS!!!

• MERRY • AND • BRIGHT •
The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us. To see my big baby girl light up like a Christmas tree around the holidays is a gentle reminder of what the holidays are truly about.
During these special times of year, take advantage of the opportunities you have to safely spend time with loved ones, have real conversations and enjoy authentic moments!

The colder it gets in Georgia, the cozier I wanna be. That doesn't mean I can't have my cake and eat it too! This two piece lounge wear from @eloquii did it for me. Aaaaaaaand it was 60% off when I got it. Ladies, it doesn't take a lot of money to get your point across. I may look like RICH AUNTIE but I shop like your BARGAIN BETTY!!!!
