These words are heavy on my heart this morning. I always tell myself that things happen for a reason, but right now I can't seem to grasp those words completely. Tomorrow might be a little easier then today, but I can only take it one baby step at at time. I am stronger than I give myself credit for & this little bump in the road will only make me a better person. Thoughts + Prayers are welcomed gratefully. xo.


Hi, friends! Hope your Friday is off to a good start. I did have a super cute outfit post put together for you, butttt I have zero inspiration or drive to finish it because my brain is complete M U S H. I have been studying non-stop all week long (with a few iced coffee breaks here + there) & I still have a week & a half to go until my exam. I catch myself trying to do something blog related & it takes 10 times as long as it normally would for me to put a post together, so it just ain't happening today. 

Good new is, I will get a little afternoon break with one of my close friends Rosa. We are headed to see World War Z + grab some cupcakes. It will be a nice break, but then it will be back to studying for this girl. 

Next week + part of the following week I have a wonderful group of ladies lined up to keep you all entertained. Sunday I am leaving for Atlantic City for the week, but trust you me, not for pleasure. I will be in a room from 7 AM - 6 PM everyday for a Board Review Course. I will be living off red bulls + ice coffees all week (yay!). I hoping that I will be able to head down to the beach in the evenings for a little bit, but I'm not holding my breathe. I will probably want to head back to the room & zonk out. 

I will try to pop in occasionally (no promises) to say hi! Until then, wish my luck & keep me in your prayers!

Hi sweet friends! I just wanted to drop in & say hello & that I miss you all! The last few days have been rather hectic with coming home, attending classes all day, writing papers & preparing for presentations. & on top of it all, my breaks went out in my car on Monday & my dad was going to fix them last night but the guy at the auto parts store gave me the wrong stuff & the parts have to be ordered now. Sooooo this morning I was at school at 7 am, an hour & a half before it started & I had to hitch a ride home. & the car won't be fixed until tomorrow, so I will be catching a ride with a girl in my class. Even though the last few days have been stressful + overwhelming to say the least, I am so thankful that she lives right around the corner& that she is kind enough to give me a ride home. 

Also, I am missing N. It hit me over the last view days that being close to him day in & day out now is something that I do not want to take for granted. ever. We lived a part for so long and moving in together has been such a huge change for both of us. It hasn't been a walk in the park by any means, but being away has been a blessing in disguise, because I have had time to think about all the things I need to work on personally in our relationship. With that being said, I can't wait to get back & give him a big ol' hug + smooch! ha!

I also wanted to share a little inspiration that I doodled today while in class. I keep trying to remind myself on a daily basis that my happiness is a choice & if I want to be happy then I need to be happy.

So. NOTE TO SELF: Choose to be happy every day of your life.

So go be happy, friends! xx
