New Year! This year my word is embrace! I am going to embrace my beauty. This is something i struggle with. I do not feel pretty and have trouble making myself feel pretty. This year I want to embrace my size and the look that the Lord gave me. I decided to start by taking time on ME. This is totally new to me! Usually my hair is in a ponytail, no make up and I spend the day in my pajamas or sweats. I will share with you each month how I am working on embracing my looks and making myself feel better and prettier. If you are like me...

Ice in Louisiana?Yes sir! We had ice and snow in Louisiana. Well, it wan’t what people up north would call snow but any time we see white falling from the sky and landing on something and staying white, even for a second, we call it SNOW! Not flurries! SNOW!Here how a person raised in the south reacts to white falling from the sky:Here are some beautiful photos of  ice covered New Iberia Louisiana on January 24,2014....

This year I am doing something different. I am choosing one word to motivate and challenge me this year. No more resolutions that I will break by the 2nd week. This will be a new challenge and I am excited! I have spent the last several days trying to decide on my ONE WORD. Think of the POWER of ONE WORD! One word to focus on and keep fresh on your mind in the months ahead. I like what OneWord365 says about your one word: “It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year,...

Have you ever said to yourself: “What am I doing here?” OR “Why now?” OR “I don’t understand!” I have been saying that a lot lately. We moved to Louisiana in October. I can not believe it has only been 2 months! WOW it seems much longer! I miss home. I miss my friends. I miss our house. I miss my family. I miss everything! The hard thing is that the kids are sad too. I am trying to stay positive for them. Encouraging them to meet new people, make new friends and try new things. My problem is...

So you may have read that we moved. We moved from an area that we had been in for over 30 years to a brand new area where we do not know a soul. Back at home I knew that if I left the house I was going to run into someone that I knew. It was a guarantee! It didn’t mater where I was going! After living in a 20 mile radius for 30 years we knew everyone! At times it was annoying but usually I loved it. I would meet up with my church friends about once a week and my best friend several times a week. Coffee meet ups were my “me”...

I haven’t been writing much the past month. Things have been a little crazy. A job sent our family from our home of 10 years right outside of Houston to a small town right outside of Lafayette. The funny thing to me is that it is only 4 hours from our old home yet we feel like we moved to another country! The culture, language, food and everything else are completely different. I can not possibly begin to tell you all I have learned in the last few weeks. It has been an adventure to say the least! Here are a few fun things I will...
