  • InfluenceNet Meetup in Florida {#sunshinestatemeetup}

    The Influence Network is an online community I love and recommend everyone to go and check it out (link provided so you can easily visit their site). I believe the internet is a tool and we all choose how to make use of it, I want to make the best use possible and so does The Influence Network’s team and members. “The Influence Network is for creatively minded women, who are looking for an uplifting community where they can be encouraged and also resourced to make their online lives mean something.” words from the influence network’s site.

  • Book Love

    As you all know by now, I have a passion for sewing and I enjoy baking. But, I also love to read. In fact reading was the first passion I discovered. Baking came next and sewing was discovered by surprise. God has a unique way of connecting each of us with our purpose by showing us our talents during different phases in our lives.

    I can remember vividly going to my room while growing up in Boston and seating on a nook with many comfortable pillows and my favorite book (of the time). My mom still shares stories of me spending hours taken by a certain book. I love hearing her stories, they bring such fond memories. Book-Love-WLdesigns

    Amongst the many things I wish to share with you are the books I come (or have came) across with that are worth sharing. I will do my best to choose one book per month and share with you why is it a great book, and why I recommend you to get a copy and dig in it.

    The first book will make its appearance next week, so please stay tuned and come check out my Book Love of the month!

  • Weekend celebrations…

    February 28 and March 1 are two of my most favorite days of the year. My oldest daughter was born on a February 28, twelve years ago. You read right, my oldest girl just turned 12. When she was just two years old I was diagnosed with cancer. A rare cancer, we couldn’t even find a doctor that knew about it, less much treat it.

    Long story short, we are both happy to be together and a day like February 28th is very emotional to me. The blessing of seeing her become a young girl makes me teary and proud. You can not imagine the nights I cried asking God to give me an opportunity to watch her grow and become a young woman and be a part of her journey. I am the most thankful mamma.

    March 1 is my husband’s birthday.This man makes me happy and I am so proud of him.

    So you can imagine the celebrations we have every year with two very important occasions occurring one day after another. It’s like a week long celebration. I don’t mind, you see I don’t cook for all those days and that makes me happy too.

    I thank God every day and night for the daily blessings and mercy he pours over me.
