HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my Southernistas! It is my prayer that 2019 will be a blessed and prosperous year for you in every area of your life!
I know we that it is January 1, 2019 buy I just wanted to take a moment to look back on 2018. The beginning of the year started out on a sad note for my family with the passing of my grandfather 8 days into 2018. It definitely left a large hole in our life! My Grandfather was 96 years old and he was more like a Father than a grandparent andI miss him so much!
With the sadness came joy and many changes in my life I started this blog which I never thought I would ever have a blog I mean what in the world do I have to say or add for that matter that hasn’t already been said or done but I discovered that I do have something to say and I am really enjoying blogging.
I was part of Dia & Co ambassador pilot program which is now the Dia Domino program and I am happy to still be involved in this program. Through this program I met Laura Stanberry (check out her blog) who is not just my style sister and shopping buddy but a great friend. I also met an amazing group of women in the Dia community which lead to an epic girl’s weekend in Nashville, TN with these women who I now call friends. We talked, laughed, shopped, and truly bonded and we continue to keep in touch with each other. I love these ladies!
2018 was also a year that saw me stretch myself fashion wise I wore leggings/pants and animal prints and until 2018 I had never worn any of those items. I found out I love leggings and while I will always love and never give up my dresses and skirts I now have a new appreciation of leggings! Again I have Dia to thank for pushing me out of my fashion comfort zone. As far as my fashion is concerned I really feel like I stepped up my fashion game. I also started playing with accessories and started taking better care of my skin.
These are just a few of the great things that happened to me in 2018! Even though the year started out sad it ended on a happy note and I am looking forward to what God has in store for me, my family and you in 2019.
Until next time Southernistas Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be Confident!
