Good morning & Happy Autumn! I just wanted to drop in & say hi. Things have been crazy around these parts, so I am sorry for my lack of posts. I feel like there is never enough time in a day to get everything I want done, so ATM blogging is taking a back seat.

This past Thursday evening, I caught a plan home to drive down to Charleston, SC with my dad + brother for my cousins wedding this weekend. It was a weekend full of dancing, drinks & family time. Hard to believe that my cousin is married & currently on her honeymoon in St. Lucia (jelly!). It was nice to see my grandparents & I even got a dance in with my 86 year old Granddad. So sweet + a memory I will forever cherish.

The next month or so is going to be super crazy for me - I am not ready to go into details on the blog just yet, but please keep me in your thoughts + prayers (& please stick around this little ol' blog of mine!).

I hope you all have a darling Monday & update me on your lives, I wanna hear! :) 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!

Happy Father's Day to my dear Daddy. You are so special to me. I love you more than words can describe & I know that I don't thank you enough for all that you do for me + our family. You work so hard + never complain. You have provided so much for our family. You have taught me so many lessons that I will never forget. 

Over the last several years we have become so close & it makes my heart so happy that I can come to you with anything .. & you will listen with open ears. I look forward to more Mexican nights, cornhole in the back yard, home made pancakes on Sunday mornings, & bottles of wine. & I will never be too old for giant hugs, 'have I told you lately that I love you's, & hearing you call me pooh bear. I love you Daddy.
