Hello all! I am almost back guys, I have been gone for a minute and I hope you missed my crazy write ups and boom chakalaka high up there with the Joneses outfits and recipes. You all know I have been trying to get this degree sorted before I stop dying my hair and officially apply for my seniors card and that's not going to happen soon if I don't focus on my assessments. I love blogging but I am also old enough to know when to take a break and prioritize the things that need my attention at any given time. Allow me to sing the chorus from the gambler in my little Kenny Rogers voice "You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em, know when to walk away, know when to run". We all need a little break now and then.
Guys I don't know about you but for me it feels like 2016 the year of the monkey has lived up to it's name. The monkey surely jumped onto my tree and has been shaking it since it landed on it. I am holding on but for someone born in the year of the pig, I prefer peace and tranquility, I like to plan, organize and be in the know of what is happening and what is going to happen. They say no one knows tomorrow yet feeling as if I have some form of control keeps me sane. Proverbs 3:5-6 says
"trust in the Lord with all your heart,Simple right? Yet I worry. And to think that I grew up in a christian home, a pastor's house for that matter and have taught kids at Sunday school to just trust and God who knows best will make everything plain and lead you in the right direction. He has brought us thus far, from the war zone in Sierra Leone, to Guinea, to Ghana, to Australia and He has been good to me and my family.
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge him,
And he will direct your path."
MY GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL!!!
Can you tell I am more of a dress and heels girl? I love me a dress especially ones with pockets like this black and white beauty from Target, paired with these aqua d'Orsay heels from Wittner and white box clutch from Colette.
Enjoy the rest of your week my lovelies and see you at you blog space. xo
