My interview as a GIRL BOSS over at ThatMoxieChickStudio

Hey, friends!

Past few weeks have been a whirlwind, as you know and I’ve been playing catch up! One thing I missed sharing with y’all was a really cool opportunity I had a couple week’s back. Vanessa from That Moxie Chick Studio approached me about being interviewed for their feature, Social Sunday. So far, their guest hosts have been fellow GIRL BOSSES, like Vanessa. The interview touches on starting and running a small business.

This is the first time I’ve done anything like this and having to sit down and contemplate this last year as a small business owner was a real treat. I realized I hadn’t really taken a moment to take it all in. You compare yourself to others and their level of success and don’t even notice that you’re negating your own.

This was a random dream of mine, years ago. In just one year, we have a running, growing small business. That’s something to celebrate. We have almost eight thousand instagram followers which is crazy to me. And again, sure, in light of others whose numbers are FAR greater than ours, that still doesn’t cancel out where we are at. We’re still in the ‘everything goes back into the business’ phase, but we’re still here. We’re still growing. We’re connecting to many in the reading/writing communities which is a huge element I desired for the company. Not to just provide a product for this audience but to create a community as well.

I’m so grateful to my business partner and everything she provides to the business. I’m beyond grateful to all who have supported us.

Anyway, let me stop with the rambling mush. Feel free to hop on over to their site and read my interview!

Hey friends!

I’m here today with a new bookish nugget that I’m happy to share with y’all! I have been a huge J. Daniels fan for a few years now. I stumbled one day on her SWEET ADDICTION series by accident one night a few years back and was hooked. Luckily, after I delved in and fell in love with Reese Carroll, I wasn’t left deprived of more man goodness. She had the Bama Boys waiting for me in her other series, ALABAMA SUMMER SERIES. Oh, boy, was I glad I stumbled upon her books.

From there on, J. Daniels became an instant one-click author for me. Suffice to say, when I saw her promoting a new series, I became amped for it’s arrival so I can get my hands on it and escape into reading wonderland.

‘FOUR LETTER WORD’ already seems like it’s gonna be a wild, whirlwind of a read and I. CAN. NOT. WAIT! Definitely recommend a looksies! You can pre-order this baby now!
Until it’s release next month, if you haven’t read J. Daniels and you love flirty, sexy, sweet, swoon-worthy, antsy, fun reads, then get on that, ASAP!

Until next time, friends! HAPPY READING ❤

ROAD TRIPS & TRAVEL: My Week in Georgia

Happy Tuesday, friends!

For my American folks, hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend. Mine was very chill but what made it extra special was that I’m not home in Florida, I’m in Georgia!

One of my closest friends since childhood has picked up her life and moved to Georgia. Her original moving date got bumped up an entire month and I was told literally two days before, “Hey, want to come road trip with me to Georgia?”

Road trip out of Florida to somewhere new? Sign me up!

I gathered a luggage and prepped for the unknown. It was a nice twelve hours in total driving, including stops. I drove a good portion of that in the second car we took with her mom. Not gonna lie, we were definitely pushing no sleep and pushing through those last couple hours that felt like an ETERNITY!

Once we arrived, I was marveled by MOUNTAINS! I have never seen mountains before. I’ve barely traveled. As we’ve driven around, purposely getting lost, I have been awestruck by some of the views here. STUNNING houses hidden within large trees up curvy, steep hills.

Parts of me wish we did come in October. I lived in Missouri for a few years and what I miss most is Fall. I love the trees changing colors, the crisp, cool smell in the air that occasionally holds that burned leaves aroma that lingers. Oh, to wear boots and scarves! I could live in those. I’m definitely a cold-weather baby. How I have lived in a tropical state most of my life baffles me.

Work in the eight days I’ve been here has taken a major backseat due to the craziness of helping my friend get settled here. I’ve had a couple good reading nights before bed which have been wonderful. This week is the week to catch up on all the things. I’d love to sit somewhere and get some writing done as well. We shall see.

It’s going to feel surreal and break my heart a little to return home. Not because of HOME. I love and miss my room and my family; it’s Florida I have no desire returning to. I’m been ready to explore and live elsewhere for years so, having a taste of it now is such a tease.

Life’s circumstances haven’t allowed me to make that move yet, but here’s to hoping it can be soon.

Well, there it is, friends! I just wanted to hop on here and share my little venture. Almost like journaling about this week with y’all. Here’s to creating our futures with a little more doing, a little less wishing. ❤
