    Why I Am Taking a Break From Instagram

    Hey y’all! I hope that you are all having a great start to this new week! So today I am going to be talking about social media. There are pros and cons, and for me personally the cons have been outweighing the pros these past few months. I’m talking about like I have been getting seriously depressed and finding myself losing a part of me that I don’t want to lose, so for that reason I will not be using Instagram again until New Years. The struggles of social media can very from person to person. For me Facebook does not have that affect on me, but for others Facebook…

    An Apology Letter to My Husband

    Dear Husband, I apologize for failing you as your wife. These last three months that you have been gone training to serve our country, I have had time to reflect on the wife that I have become. There are things that I have done that have hurt you, and I just need you to know that this is not the wife I want to be. So to begin with I want to say I’m sorry for using my words as a weapon against you. I realize that words can be powerful, and yet many times  I have used them to discourage you rather then to build you up. Words can…

    Ivan’s First Birthday

    Hey, Y’all! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! This Saturday my son turned one. I have mixed feelings about this as a mom. It feels like just yesterday I was holding him in my arms for the first time. Now my sweet baby boy is turning into a toddler, and is walking, and saying new words every day it seems. I love this boy with all of my heart, and a special thanks to, “Jessica Trammell Photography,” for taking these photos for us. Also for those of you who don’t know, my husband is away at basics, and wasn’t able to be there on Ivan’s first birthday,…

    Who Is Yahweh?

    When I began this blog, my goals, and intentions were to keep God and my relationship with Him as my number one priority. However, I found myself caught up in my own desires, and although there was nothing wrong with the things I would talk about it’s more about the fact that I stopped writing about my faith, and started worrying more about what I was going to get out of this blog. I have decided to prioritize my blog again, by keeping God at the center of all things in my life. With that being said,  I am going to talk about the many names that God has been called…

    Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust + Pumpkin Pie Recipe

    Taken By Yours Truly: AKA the Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust There’s just something about fall that brings out the desire for me to make pies. I don’t know why. I just really enjoy it. I was super excited when I saw that you could use cinnamon rolls to make a pie crust! What could be better than the aroma of cinnamon rolls and pumpkin pie coming right out of your kitchen? The crust turned out really well, however, I forgot to put eggs in the pumpkin pie mixture, so the pie part was a fail, so I won’t be posting a picture of my not so pretty pumpkin-pie, haha. Maybe…

    5 Things to Start Doing in Your 20’s Before Buying a Home

    Home is where the heart is. 1. Start building your credit right away. If you haven’t started building your credit that is something I highly suggest putting at the top of your list. When purchasing a home, almost every loaner that you come across will want to know what your credit score is, and how long you have had it. If you don’t know where to start, I would suggest going to your bank and starting with a small student credit card. My first credit card had a $200 limit on it, and I used it on small things like gas and out to eat places. 2. Make sure you…
