This past weekend was as wonderful as I had expected.

My church celebrated their 2 year anniversary. My friend's -Scott and Jamie- wedding went beautifully, and my husband and I had the privilege to play and sing at their ceremony.
Got to see my friends Chelsea, Chris and their beautiful baby boy, Ezekiel. They came from Maine, for the wedding and we were able to hang out and catch up. 
I held baby Ezequiel every second I could. 

Cutest. Little. Thing. 

I'm starting to have baby fever... Oh. boy.


Twas a busy weekend filled with memories.

January Fools.

I've only owned this jeans for a little over 3 months, and its the most worn item in my closet. No joke, just about everything goes with a black pair of jeans. Anyone?


So here's a funny story; My husband's birthday falls on Christmas eve, and this year I threw him a late surprise birthday party. Just a couple weeks after the holidays. 

He was coming home from work, so I decided to tell him (just the two of us) that his friends were coming over; thus giving him time to get ready...  little did I know what this would stir up.

Well, for starters the freshly baked cake was eyeing him in the background and I, his wife, was dressed up in front of the door with a big smile on my face. Can you see where this is going? 
I gathered my words on the spot, not clearly thinking on how I was delivering the 'We are celebrating your birthday after 2 weeks' message. 
Instead, the following words came out of my mouth: 

-"So about 2 weeks ago, an event happened...(big pause, big smile)... (Chris looking nervous)...

...ALL YOUR FRIENDS ARE COMING OVER TO CELEBRATE!!! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY PARTY!!"-

Chris started laughing hysterically, not just of happiness, but also of pure relief. Of course I come to find out he thought I was going to tell him that we were pregnant. Which please let me clarify, we are not, lol. Not yet.

But now I wish I had played him an april fools in January.

Welcome 2015!!! 

Chris's and I New Year was so much fun. We danced the night away, saying goodbye to 2014 with our friends. It was definitely a night to remember.

It's official, Christmas has been put away. Every ornament and decoration has been packed, and the beautiful pine tree has left our tiny abode. Nostalgia took over, but I look forward to another Christmas in 11 months to do this all over again.

Last year I wore this outfit to an early thanksgiving dinner with family. It was one of the first cold days we had in November, so of course I was excited to wear a sweater. 
Dear Florida, we need more days like that. 


P.S. Happy 3 Kings Day!

First of all, Happy Belated Christmas to you all. It really feels like I haven't been on this blog for a while. It's true, I went for a short hiatus there. But here I am, making a last post of the year. Can you believe it's almost 2015!?

We had a lovely Christmas in family, with lots of food, desserts and tons of chocolate. My workout routine is going to have to double in the upcoming weeks. Although the Willy Wonka overproduced factory like, stashed in my pantry, won't help. Now it'll be a good time to have Halloween again?! Right?

Oh and note to self: wear a sweater dress when it's 50 degrees out and it won't go as high as 70 in the afternoon. #Floridawinter


Have A Happy New Year!!!!

Homeward

Last time I wore this dress I had my natural hair color, and also wore my hair differently. 
Not gonna lie, sometimes I miss the brunette. But I'm very much happy with the blonde at the moment. My goal is to go a lot lighter than this, which it's a slow process that requires a lot of patience -something I lack most of the time. 

So this one thing coming up is very much exciting. If you remember on a post, a couple months ago, I mentioned that my church band and I (The Anchor Collective) went to Georgia to record music that we had written. Well, our cd "The Homeward Ep" (sounds so surreal to say) is finally here!! and we are having a release party next friday the 19th. 
This has been a very exciting project, in collaboration with artists Felicia Fish who did all of the cd artwork, and poets Brandon Lubin and Nick Murray. 
So, If you live close by or would like to travel from afar or just happen to be in town, we would love for you to come. It's a night you don't want to miss.
