Starting Anew

A little more than a month ago, I decided to start blogging about my engagement and I was so very excited and happy. Although I'd been engaged since the summer of last year, I used New Years Day to begin my new experience of sharing my journey with the world.

However, I regret to inform you that I am no longer engaged.

So, with a new status comes a new blog. I'd imagine that as I go through my period of dis-engagement while still having a love and passion for wedding planning, I can share those thoughts, ideas, and feelings here. And one day, when I am strong enough to delete my old blog, I will start anew as the original

until then, were going to use this http address.

I hope you all will continue to join me as I am healed and restored as a beautiful woman who will emerge with a powerful testimony..............................

and continue to share my wedding related DREAMS..................................................


  1. I am very sorry to hear about the break in your engagement. I hope that you are alright... or as alright as can be expected.

  2. Hello Dearest! Keep in mind all things happen for a reason... but i guess, i'm preachin' to the choir. I am so happy that you are so positive and have such a beautiful glow and strength about you. I look forward to the adventure i can join you on here at this blog... and one day on your other one! :)

  3. Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry. Stay strong and do what you need to do to move onwards and upwards.

EARTH DAY!! One of my favorite celebrations! 3 ways you can help relieve the burden we've placed on the Earth!

Every time you turn around, there's a new holiday popping up like National Compliment Day celebrated on January 24th or International Dot Day celebrated on September 15th.

But who doesn't LOVE a reason to celebrate? I sure do!!

And one of those grand times for me is EARTH DAY!! I've been celebrating Earth Day since I was about 7 years old and each year, I execute some action, whether big or small, to contribute to protecting the planet.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22 each year. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.

Plant-Based Eating Plan - Meal Prep (11/19) - 1 Week Trial

Hey Corner Clique!!

So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!

Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!

I guess that brings me to my why..... I hope this doesn't sound shallow but..... I really want to wear (and look good in) a sequin dress for New Years Eve. Not just this year, but year after year, after year, after year, after year..............................Let's be real, sequin can be very unforgiving, it's just not one of those fabrics that everyone loves. But it can be so beautiful and festive during this time of year. Sequin makes me happy!! :-) Therefore, I'm going to work ha…
