Might be a little mushy but I’m so happy you are here!
I want this blog to be a place where we can truly connect and get to know each other.
That’s why I am asking you up front to comment, email and connect with me here and through Instagram so I can get to know a little about you too.
A LITTLE HISTORY
I was born and raised in the South. Fayetteville N.C.
I was a shy child, the baby of 5 with big dreams and ambitions.
Somewhere along the way, I realized that life wasn’t the fairy tale I thought it was.
My young heart was broken and for a while, I lost my way.
I got pregnant at 16 and was a single mom at 17.
For a long time, I felt like a statistic, a failure.
No matter how hard I tried, I never felt good enough.
This was a lie I allowed myself to believe for far too long which is why I shared it right from the start.
I’ve learned that we are only negatively defined by our past if we allow ourselves to be.
No one has the perfect life and you know what, that’s ok!
In fact, some of our greatest strengths come through our greatest struggles.
A NEW STORY
God sent the one he created just for me.
He is the most amazing Puerto Rican man in the world and we were married at the tender age of 20.
Find our love story on the blog!
My husband Tony is also from the South, which means he is a perfect blend of island magic and Southern charm.
Subsequently, this also means that our three daughters are a splendid combination of Southern Bell and Tropical Hurricane!
I’m an Army wife and my life can best be described as organized chaos, or the girl saved by Grace.
We’ve already moved 11 times in 16 years but I wouldn't change it for the world!
I’ve had great success in life.
I’ve grown businesses.
I’ve raised babies.
I’ve traveled more than I ever imagined and I’m excited for what’s to come.
I am not who I once was and I am not who I will be.
I BLOG BECAUSE
I started this blog as a way to share my health and fitness journey but it's become my place to share so much more!
This blog is one of my places to connect.
My place to shout - YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
My heart is to share this journey called life.
I hope my post will encourage you in your own journey called life.
I’ll share travel, home decor, DIY, fashion, health, fitness, recipes, parenting/marital lessons - you know- LIFE.
Welcome to this space.
This is my life.
This is our blog.
A FUSION of all things REAL.
I am an Army wife who’s life is ALWAYS changing?
Do you ever feel that way?
That means you are real and you have opportunity to grow!
We only get one life.
Let's live it well!
Let’s do that together.
