JOY

I feel like we’ve had this New Year’s haze in the air. Everyone is happy with the expectation of newness. I know I was part of the “Looking Forward to 2016!” crowd last month. However, with only a few days into the new year, things are just as busy and full as they were at the end of last year. I have been slammed with unexpected challenges that have tried to knock me off of the “New Year, New Things” happy vibes. It was in the midst of this that I realized it’s about the choices I made and what … [Read more...]

Six Organizations I Support on #GivingTuesday

Organizations I support on Giving

  This year, I’m all about Giving Tuesday. I didn’t shop Black Friday but I really want to make an impact on #GivingTuesday. While it’s only one day, I’m proud to say that I support all these organizations year round because they do good work. I’ve vetted them with Charity Navigator to make sure that they actually are accountable and doing what I believe they are. They are listed in no particular order of preference. It's just a list.

Beaches Turks and Caicos in 3 Words

  In the interest of keeping things short, I can’t really tell you how magnificent my experience at the Beaches  Turks and Caicos Social Media on the Sand Conference vacation was.  The first three words that come to mind about our experience were Number1, Personalized and #SoonComeBack. Normally, I talk about how wonderful a conference is and what I learned. This event was another level of a conference and vacation experience. There were slight hiccups but it was unique because I don’t … [Read more...]

Blogalicious5 A Great Experience My Way

photo+6

Blogalicious5 is officially over but in no way do I think the experience is over. I went into the weekend not knowing quite I was going to get.  I am very new to the blogging world and didn’t have many “friends” walking into Blogalicious so I was a little nervous. On the other side, I confidently say it was a great experience and I will be back as often as I can. I’m really excited to hear where it will be since I know I’m going next year (I’ve won a pass for next year!!!) and I’m already … [Read more...]
