Each Passing Day...

As each day passes by, I realize that my life is about to go through another change. Not only did I marry my college sweetheart and the perfect man for me, but I am about to finish graduate school with honors AND I will be at my company for 4 years two days after! This is just amazing! I could not have predicted all of these milestones [for me] would occur at once! Although I will not be walking the stage at graduation because of a wedding hubby & I have to attend, I have this heart of gratefulness towards all of the things that have occurred and continue to occur in my life! I think its a testament to my faithfulness to God, my obedience to what he guides me to do and my patience when he says 'eventually, but not right now'.

I am only 27, I will be 28 later this year. While life is not intended to be perfect, I can say that even with all the setbacks and disappointments...I would not change ONE thing. It is amazing to have come this far in life and still take the time out to appreciate the journey. After all, "life is a journey, not a destination." I just want to say thank you to each of you for inspiring me to continue sharing my life via this medium! I honestly told my husband yesterday, I don't know what tomorrow holds but I know who holds tomorrow. With that said, I don't know what my presence will be online after graduate school is over. I do not know if I wish to fully give myself into just my blog or if YouTube will be included. I just don't know yet so I hope that answers the questions I have received. I want to finish school and see how I feel. If I have the same energy and passion towards it, I will return. If not, I won't. It isn't to punish the people that have supported and continue to support me, but it is because I have accepted that the happiness and safety of myself & family is more important to me than having an online presence on both my blog and YouTube. 

Just wanted to share my thoughts at this time! I am a pretty open book so I wanted to let you all know where I stand!

Here are a few photos from the past week!


As you all know, we welcomed the first days of spring this week. Texas weather has been sort of spring like since. However, we may be back in the 40s and 50s next week. We shall see! Right now, my allergies are going haywire because of the change in weather.


I have committed to being thankful for what I have right now, in this moment. It has given me a happiness that cannot be explained other than by this quote. 


I sweated my curls out on Friday while working out so I wore a low bun to work for casual friday. Anytime I wear my hair back, I love to go simple on the makeup with a bold lippie! This lippie is Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest Cabernet. Its one of my favorite lip colors! Decided to wear my new sweater from J. Crew that I just adore!


My sweet coworker who is currently out on maternity leave came into the office for a meeting and brought me this sweet card & gift! Although everyone knows where we are registered, we are not in need of anything so this was perfect. I have already made use of the g/c by grabbing some things for the house.


Babe & I went out last night for our weekly date night! We ended up having drinks at Whiskey Cake in Plano, Texas before heading to the theater to see Divergent. Man, that was an awesome movie! I cannot wait to read the books once grad school is over just a short time from now!


I am currently [as I write this blog post] in a curly wanna be top knot because I feel like crap (thanks to my allergies!). This will probably be my style the entire weekend. Minimal work involved and makeup free. As you can see, I have a new phone now! Loving it thus far, even though its very much identical to my iPhone 5. The gold and white is a nice upgrade from the all black iPhone 5 I had.


Curls I rocked earlier this week! Done using a perm rods and minimal product! Air dried overnight! 


I love this lace peplum top from Ann Taylor I bought last year! So feminine and simple. Paired it with a necklace from Shop Lately. 


I leave you with one of my favorite photos taken by the photographer since I am very much still on a high from our wedding day! Cannot believe the 28th of March will mark one month!  

Until next time...
