Chapter 27


"One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue without consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest." 

-Maya Angelou 



My birthday month is over! It was a great month! (And yes, I celebrate for the entire month!) Birthdays for me feel like Christmas. It's a celebration that we often take for granted. You didn't have to wake up today. You didn't have to be in your right mind BUT you are and I'm so grateful for that. 

I decided that every weekend for the month of March I would do something special for myself and I did. To start the month off, I was photographed by the fabulous Denise Benson followed by a weekend getaway to Kiawah Island, a mini shopping spree and ended it all with some peace and quiet! 

My goals for this new era in my life are to treat myself better. I will no longer be so hard on myself. I deserve some GRACE! I'm human and I'm learning to take things one day at a time. You should always plan for the future without forgetting how to live in the moment. 

Here's to 27!!!

Although, most people wait until they turn 30 to do such a big shoot I decided the time was right. How often do we celebrate ourselves? I'm constantly caught up between work, school and parenting that I easily fall by the waste side. Life is beautiful. Everyday you wake up you should be EXCITED because someone didn't. Never take life for granted. Start living and doing! You deserve it!


Put on your best outfit, blow out your candles and dance like no one is watching!

P.S. If you're worried about what someone has to say...don't live your BEST life today!!!
