Although I don’t have a have significant other or Valentine at the moment, I still respect this holiday for what I believe it was meant to be, people spreading love and light. Also, it’s not the end of the world if you…

My Love is LIT Event Recap

On Friday, February 3, we hosted “My Love is LIT”, which was a painting session at Mimosa and a Masterpiece and a self-love workshop. We were so excited to host this event, especially with Valentine’s Day coming up. It can be difficult for our sisterfriends to remember who they should love first, themselves.

It was so nice to connect…

Top 5 Favorite Fall Dates

I would have to say fall is my favorite time of the year! I love when the leaves begin to change colors, and when I can pull my sweaters and boots out of the closet.

Dating my Dad: Our Journey to the Alter

I recently got engaged to the love of my life. She is the most self less, creative, forgiving and loving woman I’ve ever met, as well as the most beautiful one. In learning to love her, I’ve learned how to love, accept and forgive myself along with those around me, most importantly my father. My father and I have never had a normal father daughter relationship. Sad enough to say, my story will seem very similar to far too many young women in our society today, but I never fully realized how…
