Mom, thanks for seeing me.

As many of you all know, I moved! I now reside in Greenville, SC and with all moves there are adjustments. I know this well, as I’ve moved a good bit. I got my own loft apartment and it’s lovely in every way. My mom is living with me and getting a feel for the…

Saturday, we wait. Sunday, we rise.

I am moving. Before I share all the details of when, where, who, and how; let me start from the beginning of this journey for me personally. A few years ago, my friend Patty and I were reflecting on Saturday, the day after Jesus died, and how in life we have Saturdays; days of grief…

Faitth, where are you going to next?

So this year is coming to a close. I planned to document this epic year of travel in real time and discuss my travels and the places I went but that did not happen. So I plan to blog about it in past tense but hey, better late (like a year late) than never, right? I…

The lonely days…

I’ve never felt more lonely than my first night in Portland, December 1, 2016. A year ago, I went to Portland for vacation. My friend was supposed to join me but due to a family emergency, she could no longer come on the trip. I was not mentally prepared to be in Portland alone. After exploring…

Mom, your heart beats in mine.

Dear Mom- As I get older I realize how much I’ve taken your love for granted. Late nights. Endless phone calls. Heartache. Heartbreak. Joy. Sadness. Depression. Shame. You’ve seen every beautiful part of my soul. And you’ve walked with me through every valley. The good book says, where can I go and you’re not there.  I…

All this Weight.

I wasn’t always thick or chubby (as I usually say…when referring to my weight). In fact, I remember thinking I would never be thick, my metabolism wouldn’t betray me. And I could continue my life during college eating what I wanted when I wanted it. I mean, I tried to work out on and off…

Travel on a Budget

I love traveling. I find so much thrill and enjoyment from jumping on a plane and finding myself in a different city or country. Several of you have asked how I get these said deals and I am writing this blog to tell you about the tricks I have learned. Mind you, there is so…

Baby Kadyn 

My heart is filled with love. Tuesday, I met my new little love; my nephew Kadyn. Somehow his little life lit up mine. All my priorities fell by the wayside. The world stopped. I barely watched the news and I didn’t care about the political climate (this is rare) because a new little man graced…

Everyone is Hurting

I know most people feel like they limped into 2017. Some bruised. Some wounded. Some angry. Some grieving. Some questioning. Some filled with joy. I feel like some people are trying to sort through the heightened emotions of 2016 the way we sort through our dirty laundry. Which clothes do I wash first?

Self-Care 

A lot of people have asked me about how I am handling my full schedule. If you don’t know this already, I have a fiercely loving and supportive tribe. This means that I get questions all the time about how I am doing or am if I’m getting burned out.  I decided to write a…

Dear “Supermodel” Me

**So I was searching my drafts, I have over 20 blogs sitting around that I’ve never published. I’m not sure why I didn’t publish this one two years ago. Maybe I felt it was too vulnerable, I’m not sure. But I love the raw honesty so I figured this was a great blog to share…
