A Easter to Remember!

Happy Easter:
Easter so much fun this year, I think the most fun one yet! The children are getting older and really beginning to get into the Holidays. Our Sunday consisted of a wonderful Sunday morning lesson of our King and Savior raising from the dead. Precious children seeing what Peter Cotton Tail left them in their baskets. And lastly, a fun easter egg hunt. We have had such a joy filled day.

The Day My Dreams Came True.

The Day My Dreams Came True:
When I was three years old I had a child come up to me in preschool and ask me a question I had never heard before. "Are you a Auburn or Alabama fan?" Naturally being three years old I had no idea what either of those things were, so I picked which one sounded prettier and I said Auburn. Little did I know I did actually pick the prettier one, (in my opinion). After that I began to learn over the years more about auburn and I knew that I had to go there. 

When I was nine years old, I had an interior decorator tell me that I would make an unbelievable decorator.  It was in that small moment I knew what I wanted to do with my life. Come to find out, Auburn has one of the greatest Interior Design programs in the U.S. So guess where I just HAD to go? 

When I turned eighteen I knew I was going to go to a community college first, it seemed the smarter choice, and very much was. but after two years there, the time came to apply for the College of my dreams.

Guess what!...

I Made It!

Why I Started Blogging.

Why I Started Blogging:
Today I have decided to share with you why I started blogging. On June 1st 2015 I started my blog. I had no idea what I was doing, what I would say, what was important in blogging, or anything.  My sister has a very successful blog and she made it look so easy!! 

At first when I started I thought that I would focus my blog mostly around fashion and a little around lifestyle.  I thought this because I have always loved fashion and trying new looks, and standing out.  I didn't think I had enough of anything else to write about. I thought "who would care?". Little did I know...

My blog immediately became a lifestyle blog right before my eyes.  I realized I could write about ANYTHING I wanted, and people DID care.  I very quickly realized the importance to get my posts available to social media, and how much social media impacted my blog.  Once I had it moving (slowly but moving) I started getting to know other bloggers which encouraged me to keep going. 

My sister was the biggest help, she gave me all of her tips and got me moving along smoothly.  Thanks to her I was able to hit a goal I set for myself way ahead of time. She continues to help me still to this day, along with many other bloggers who aren't aware.

So I just wanted to say thank you, to everyone who has encouraged me to keep going, everyone who leaves me the comments that melt my heart, and everyone who cares about what I have to say.

Thank you!

Easy Morning Routine Done Right!

Easy Morning Routine Done Right:

Are you not a morning person? 
Neither am I, I have the hardest time getting up early and being productive. Not to mention with being a college student its so difficult to make those 8 a.m.'s, and listen to those long drawn out lectures. 

If you're like me, you need a morning booster, I start off my day with Nature Valley Cereal. It powers my day and gives me the boost I need to be productive. Nature Valley Cereal has so many flavors but I am so excited about their three newest flavors, Honey Oat Clusters, Chocolate Oat Clusters, and Baked Oat Bites. The chocolate oat clusters and baked oat bites are my absolute favorite. I am a huge cereal lover, and I must say out of all the cereals that Ive had these are by far the most flavorful and delicious cereals.

After I start off my day with Nature Valley Cereal, I'm ready for my early morning 8 a.m.'s, and long drawn out lectures. I even might go for a run or go hiking. I use Nature Valley to power my mornings and power my days.

She hand packages each tea which she says "brings her joy". Michelle is a great example of what we ought to strive for. Helping others brings her such joy in what she does. Her teas make for a fabulous gift for any tea lover!
