Year Two of Teaching is Done!

I Tried Speed Dating (Online)

Hey y’all! So as most of you know (or may not know if you’re new here…if so, hi), I am a hopeless hopeless romantic. There’s nothing I want more than to be settled and in a relationship.

A Look at How You Look

Hey y’all! This past week, Khloe Kardashian caused a bit of a stir. Now here is my disclaimer before I go too far in deep. I have a love hate relationship with the Kardashians. Like Kourtney, she’s honestly my favorite (like I love her) but the other ones get on my nerves. Kim, slightly remindsContinue reading “A Look at How You Look”

Forgiveness is More Than Saying Sorry
