Morning Devotion ~ My Struggle and My Solution

Travel & Leisure

There was a time that I woke up with anticipation of my morning devotion. I enjoyed this quiet time, alone, reading my bible and praying. It became part and parcel of my morning routine throughout my college years, and my years in the workplace. I’m the kind of person that requires quiet, alone time, with some form of caffeinated beverage, at least thirty minutes before I do anything useful. So, there’s really no reason why I can’t spend these initial moments of each day with the Lord…

Once I became a foster parent, I recognized that my alone time had to revolve around a tiny other being. That was the start of some inconsistency in my morning devotion. Then, after going through some very difficult trials (as a foster parent), let’s just say that my morning devotion became obsolete. Since then, it’s been an ongoing struggle. Nevertheless, I have been praying for something…anything to resurrect the anticipation, I once had.

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

Scott and I just returned from a 5-Day Winter Vacation to the Westin, Grand Cayman. When planning this trip, I specifically wanted a location in which Scott and I could enjoy calm and clear ocean water. The Seven Mile Beach, in Grand Cayman is known for it’s outrageously calm and clear ocean water. So, that was an easy decision. We decided on the Westin in Grand Cayman because it is situated on the Seven Mile Beach and had all the amenities we were looking for. In this blog post, I’m going to share an overview of the Westin, Grand Cayman. I’ll also share what we ate, since let’s face it, vacation is 50% about experiencing great food!

The Ultimate Men's Gift Guide

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

You would think it’s easier to shop for men. They’re supposedly more laid back and less complex. And yet, every year, I struggle to find the perfect holiday gift for my husband, Scott. Sometimes, we’ll joke around and I’ll remind him how easy it is to shop for me! “I would love anything from Nordstrom, Loft, Anthropologie, Kendra Scott, Lagos, etc.” But, Scott is super picky and prefers to buy things himself. Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of research on unique men’s gift ideas. I discovered a bunch of  things that have more originality. As of today, Scott does not own anything, on this list. But, I think he’d love anything that falls into his category. Therefore, I’m calling this The Ultimate Men’s Gift Guide. Because if Scott would love it, I’m sure your man will, too!

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

Scott and I just got home from a long weekend in Las Vegas. He surprised me with Celine Dion tickets, for my birthday. (Back in September.) I was a little concerned that it would be too much to travel to Las Vegas for a concert. Neither one of us wanted to spend too much money or run out of time to get our money’s worth. So, we agreed on the highlights we both wanted to see and do, and took it from there. Best of all? We did not break the bank. So, before you head out to Vegas for a long weekend, have a look to see how we spent our 72 hours!
