New Year, New Beginnings, New Story, New Hair!

Do you remember me?  :(

It's been almost a year since the last time I posted. While I am sad that I was away from my blog for such a long time, so much has changed for the better!

The end of 2012 was tough for me, I was struggling with some things at my job, finances, priorities, relationships, and really just felt a spirit of depression all over me. By December, I looked back on the year and was upset that I had not accomplished most of the things I said I would. I was in a bad place and often buried my problems in things that made me feel better for the moment. I told myself I couldn't continue to live as I had and needed a change. 

The best thing that has happened to me, was right after the new year! I decided to grow further into my spirituality and accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior! Ever since January, 6, 2013, my life has changed for the better! I feel a new energy and excitement for my life and future. I know that the best part of my life is to come! There have been many promises that God has given me and I believe in each and everyone of them. Immediately I saw my life turn around for the better. 

So much to catch you up on, so here's a quick recap!

Me and my hunny made it official! I am working on planning the wedding for next spring and I am so happy that I have such a loving man to spend the rest of my life with. 

In March, I was blessed with a new car that I love! 
In April, I celebrated my 26th birthday! 
AND last not but certainly not least, early this month, I graduated!

I have been working on having a good relationship with God, my hunny, my family, and my friends. God has really helped to put a balance in my life that I can truly say, I have never had. I am so grateful for all that I have and the renewal I have received in my life. 

I am excited to let you all join me in my new journey - with Christ, love and marriage, wedding planning, adulthood, health & fitness, fashion, and just about anything I plan to blab about on here. 

AND.... let's not forget my new hair journey...
 Earlier this week, I decided to start wearing my hair in its natural state...
 I've been without relaxers for a few years, but have always felt some fear in embracing my curls. Not any longer! So, What do you think?

How are you all doing? 
Any exciting life changes?
Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. GIRL! That is AMAZING!! I am SO happy for you! A very similar thing happened to me at the end of 2011, and on January 1st, 2012 I asked Jesus to be Lord over my life. It's been an INCREDIBLE journey since, I was just reflected today on how I had no idea what a life changing day that would be for me. Excited for you in this journey :) And CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement!
