Monthly Archives: November 2017


Yes, I know. Thanksgiving was so last week, and yet again, this blog post is late lol. Hey! It hasn’t been a FULL week (or month) late this time so it’s all good. Anyway, if you know me, my favorite season is fall and my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. There’s just something about it that makes me feel at home. I love the whole, waking up early to prep the turkey and getting it in the oven. I love the ALL DAY prep for dinner. I love turning on the TV and watching the Macy’s day parade. I love blasting and singing Christmas music as the whole family is working together to prepare our Thanksgiving meal. I love watching the football games. I love the food and getting major food comas after the meal, then taking a family nap, waking up from that nap, and eating all over again. I LOVE IT ALL. This year was just as exciting, but maybe even more so because it was mine and Raf’s 1st Thanksgiving as husband and wife. I know we’ve had many, many Thanksgivings together with all the years we’ve dated, but this year was different. A good kind of different.

Raf’s mother and her boyfriend hosted Thanksgiving this year so we all headed there for lunch. We had an amazing spread, great conversation, and of course, great company. Afterwards, Raf and I headed home because we had Thanksgiving dinner at our house and I had to prep a few more things before dinner. Once again, more food, more food comas, and a great time.

There’s so much to be thankful for. This year has been such an amazing year and it’s not even over yet. Raf and I started the year off engaged and I had been working a few months at my job. The wedding planning began, my sister graduated college, and I got married…just to name a few things. My family is complete, my heart is full, and we are truly blessed. God is so good. Of course I’m thankful and grateful everyday, but Thanksgiving is special because it is a day where we can reflect on the countless blessings in our lives with our families. We have about a month left of the year and I know that it’ll be great!



Hey y’all!

Sorry for the almost 2 month hiatus on my blog. I’m horrible at this lol. I do have a good excuse to why I haven’t been around for a month and a half though! I GOT MARRIED! Yep, we did it. We sealed the deal on November 3rd 2017 and it couldn’t have been anymore perfect. I won’t go into details right now, because I plan to blog about the actual wedding day, details, etc on a separate blog..or two. The most important thing to share right now is that I’m a married woman! It still feels so surreal. I’m so not used to being a wife yet or telling people I’m married. I do know that it’s an amazing feeling though.

Aside from tying the knot. The husband and I have been on our honeymoon for the past 8 days. We got married on a Friday and flew to Hawaii that Monday. We had a few days to relax and pack, and boy are we glad we did that because we were pooped after the wedding. I don’t know how some couples could go on their honeymoon immediately following their wedding and sometimes that same night! Props to them!

Our honeymoon was so relaxing. We did a couple days in Maui and the rest of the trip in Oahu. I won’t go into too much detail about it yet, because I also want to make a separate post on the honeymoon.

That’s that! There’s my update for you. It’s a good excuse for being MIA right? I promise I will try to get back to my blog asap. As soon as we get settled in again. We actually flew home last night and have a one day break, which is today (aka laundry, unpacking and repacking) because we’re going to do a part 2 honeymoon in Southern California. The husband and I are still on vacation so we figure we might as well take advantage. We will be driving out there early tomorrow morning and spending about 4 days there, just to top off the honeymoon. That being said, brb and I’ll be back soon! 🙂
