The stand

It’s hard to talk to someone and to explain them a specific point if they aren’t willing to listen. When DACA comes to mind, I think of that exact notion. Why isn’t congress or our president listening to our cry? We are distraught. We are fearful. We have doubt. We feel betrayed. We feel at […]

Saying goodbye

It’s Labor Day weekend and I’m excited to do a mini transition from summer to fall in my closet. It’s be real. Soaking up the sun. Wearing strapless tops. Letting the toes run free. However I’m ready for sweater weather. With that, I’d like to dedicate this post to all things summer and fun, and […]

Self hope

Once school begins there’s no downtime. Ironically enough it’s also the season where I seem to find myself the most organized. For me, it’s back to day planning, schedules, and occasional double-bookings. Even though I hate to admit it–I love to stay busy. One thing I absolutely love to do once school starts is get […]

One of those

It was one of those days. You know, long stressful, tiring, and just overall hectic. It wasn’t necessarily a bad day; it was just a day where all I wanted was to come home. I want to be first to admit that I’m selfless and at times down right understanding of life’s many obstacles, but […]

First Day Back

Oh the first day back to school. When I was younger I dreaded this day, but now it’s filled with different emotions. Today I started year 5! Gosh I can hardly believe it. It seems so unreal that five years ago I transitioned into this special profession. So far being a teacher has been such […]

Let’s face it cooler weather and shorter days are among us, but there’s no need to hide away, that perfect dress is waiting for you. For example I’ve dying over this Blue Print Dress, from Zaful. I’ve been into the […]

Talk about the back

Tomorrow I return to work. While I’m excited to start the new school year, I’m also anxious, nervous, and a bit on the unmotivated side of things. It’s year five for me, but something inside of me still wants to be in Mexico. So while the realization of school starting back up is more than […]

Full on

I’ve been dreaming of the day where I just get to sit and relax for about a month. I wanted it to be in my own home. My own bed. My own pillow. So when I got back from Mexico it was only natural to do what I do best–NOTHING. So I’ve done nothing for […]

Mission Trip: VBS

My most favorite aspect of this mission trip was being able to interact with the children of Tizimin during Vacation Bible School. This wonderful lady, who has literally been sent by God, for these children heads up the school/church responsible for their formation. Her name is Magdalena Saldana. She has the spirit of a lion.

Mission Trip: the beginning of greatness

Hey everyone! Long time no talk. I truly apologize for being away for so long. However, I’m excited to share why I’ve been gone from the blogger world for more than three weeks. I was on a mission trip with Micah. We traveled to Tizimin, which is in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. To say […]
