Who is SHE??

Well hello hello hellooo!
I know it's been a while, a very LONG while, but I'm back babes! I've started a new life, I've overcome several obstacles, and I'm looking forward to a brighter future! There's quite a bit to catch without further ado, ALLOW ME TO RE-INTRODUCE MYSELF!

At almost 28 (only three more months!), I have learned so much about this life I've been chosen to live. The major factor contributing to the changes in my life is none other than my precious baby girl, Jocelyn Marie.

This beautiful little munchkin has given me every reason I ever needed to kick my life into high gear and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN! I have enjoyed spending every day with my little Minnie and watching her learn and grow. Now, I'm wearily counting down the days until her first birthday in just a couple of weeks. I must say, time goes by faster than I could have ever imagined it would; but I'm excited to see where this journey as mother and daughter takes us.

Along with learning to be the world's greatest mom, I've also been enjoying (and sometimes dreading) the college life. I'm still working on my Associate's degree and I'm looking forward to graduation in May 2017! As a treat to myself, I'll be going to New York City and I honestly CAN NOT WAIT! {If you have any tips on where I should go or what I should see, leave a comment below!}

Lastly, I must say I have been ultimately blessed in my journey since the last time I posted here. Although I'm not living in Orlando currently {but I'll be back!}, I am so grateful for the protection God has provided while on this crazy rollercoaster ride. Life is a curious day you think you're going to move to your dream city and let go of a relationship you've held on to long past its prime. The next day, you find out you're going to be a mom and you're engaged. And then, just to keep things interesting, everything changes. Everything you knew about your life is false and your plans have been taken away from you. To be real, depression hit me hard during those times. I wasn't sure if I would ever make it through the drama and deceit I had to deal with. I considered giving my daughter up for adoption to spare her the pain I was being forced to endure. Yet, I never gave in. I never quit fighting, I never quit praying. And now, God has provided me with the tools and resources I need in order to not only move past my PAST, but to create a better future than I could have ever imagined. It is so satisfying to say that I'm not the person I used to be...all thanks to God's GRACE.

Anyway....I'm hoping to use this blog to create a happy space for me. Mom life, work life, college life, church life...all of that takes a toll and although I find satisfaction in those areas of my life, I don't feel pure happiness in them. So, this blog is not only going to be my escape and vent through which I express my life, but also my little place of peace where I can be myself - and ENJOY IT.

I hope you will join me on this ride and witness the miracles that happen in my life, the joys and triumphs and the craftiness that happens along the way! Thank you for reading and welcome back!
