With a demanding career, managing a blog, and trying to take care of home life it began to feel as if I was working on a 24/7 schedule. The quote, “A woman’s work is never done” began to take root in my life. But I am here to say that that is lie from the pits of hell because even God rested on the 7th day.Read More
Have you ever studied the movement of water up on the shore? How it ebbs and flows? First, the water rushes towards you covering every bit of wet sand beneath your feet. Then, it pulls away from you. Drawing itself back out to sea. Moving in a rhythmic motion. Occasionally it will rush in quickly, linger for a little bit before it pulls itself back out deep into the ocean.

There's something about turning 30 that makes me feel like more of a woman. I know once I turned 18 I was officially considered a woman (at least according to law), but I have always looked at 30 as the age of maturity. Now as I am turning 30 I have a newfound perspective on life that clearly wasn't there before. I can thank life for the many lessons it has taught me in my 20s for that. Entering into a new phase of life I can definitely say there are a few things I now know for sure.
