I was never a fan of Justin Bieber as an artist, even before his tumultuous teenage years. However, he caught my attention after his visits to Hillsong NYC about a year ago. He had been visiting after his run-ins with the law and other reckless behavior. Justin has now remerged promoting his new album, Purpose, reinventing his public image and proclaiming his relationship with God as his catalyst for change.

lightstock_170245_medium_user_3621594Psalm 106:1 Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

Just wanted to do a quick post on the blog. I’ve been thinking about Thanksgiving and how I haven’t used the holiday to its optimal meaning. I usually used to get up late in my parents house just in time to go to church (half awake), to then rush home to get ready for visiting family and friends houses. I enjoyed it all but I want my Thanksgiving to mean more to me than hangouts, dressing up and good food. So I want to list the things I am thankful for and appreciate all that God has done this year.

Most millennials are so weary about the idea and concept of marriage but are so intrigued by wedding blogs, engagement ring posts, or young married couples on social media. We are a generation obsessed with love for what is at face value.

Im back! Unfortunately I haven’t posted something since late July. I really wanted to be more consistent with the blog, but this year has been crazy. I was busy planning my wedding, got married on September 20th, went to my honeymoon and got back in October. October was probably one of my most interesting and eventful months. My sisters engagement, a baby shower and my niece being born all happened in a couple of weeks. It was also my first month married.

We are currently in the last half of summer. Where did the time go? I know that many of my friends and family have either already left on vacation or are planning to leave. Being such a home body you would think I would hate traveling but I love adventure and visiting new places. Doesn’t matter if its a car or plane ride away. I used to hate traveling for many reasons. But now that I travel more often, I am starting to establish a pattern that makes the time away more fulfilling and productive. I have been meaning to write this blog for so long. I’m not perfect at traveling but I hope these tips benefit those planning to go on vacation so that you can maximize your time away.

Diary of an Anxious Bride: Its Time to Celebrate

I stated a few weeks ago that wedding planning hasn’t been going well for Jerry and I. Not because of any problems between the both of us but due to logistics and things not working out as planned. It took us so many months to find a venue of our liking. Looking back maybe we were too picky. Since we have together for a long time (7 years to be exact) we have really high expectations of what our wedding day should look like. Add that to my anxiety, Jerry’s promotion, friends are getting married and other events we are a part of. To say that we are being stretched is an understatement.

So we are in June. Where did the time go? Jerry and I are only 3 months away from our wedding.

What hurts me the most is its been chaos for us. I wish I could say that after 7 years of being together, this would be our happiest time but unfortunately its been otherwise. My anxiety began right before I got engaged to Jerry and it was so bad that I don’t remember the proposal. This alone has made me so depressed. The fact that I would go weeks without wearing my ring or months of no wedding planning. The fact that I’ve cried more than I’ve been excited about this process. I’ve felt like I’ve become my high school self again. The person I never wanted to turn back too.

Life Lesson I Learned From a Caterer

So this post is a bit off the top of my head. Usually I like to sit down and formulate a topic thats been on my mind. It normally takes a couple of days or a week to finish a blog. But this time I really want to talk about a simple conversation I had with a complete stranger that impacted me. Ironically, it was a meeting Jerry and I had with a possible caterer.

Into the Wild

When you are trapped into the wilderness you walk around not knowing what will happen each day. Every second is an unexpected adventure which brings no expectation of what you will be doing next or what mood you will be in. There is no one to talk to when you are stranded in the wilderness alone. No one that physically understands or hears you. Insecurities and fears become taller than the trees. The days are sometimes rainy, foggy or clear but the nights are always damp and cold. When you are lost in the woods your thoughts are loud and clear. You are more sensitive to the uncomfortable state of not only your body but also your mind.
