Sunshine & Smiles

Finishing up all my classes for the semester got me feelin like #Sunshine&Smiles today. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, despite what will probably go down in history as the most challenging semester/season of my life. But I already feel so accomplished. I feel like I’ve really worked hard, personally and professionally and I’m on my way- although the destination is still pending. But the point is, I’m en route! I’m so proud of me right now. I feel like, congratulations are definitely in order. I’m feeling like, I deserve a treat, although I’m not sure if I want to splurge on shoes or a vacation…..okay, so I want both quite honestly, but see the way my account set up… #UKnowThaRest


I often think of what the destination would be if given the opportunity to travel. Its days like this when I truly miss my travel benefits as an airline stewardess, flying the friendly skies and having the opportunity to travel the world, literally. How I miss spending the day on an island, eating Maryland blue crabs, walking along the board walks of Venice Beach or the Jersey shore or hopping a flight to Europe, just because. Now that I think about it, I didn’t really even put a dent in all of the places on my bucket list.

I think I have a few more years left before I need to get my passport renewed. Plus I want to get at least 4 more stamps on it before that time… #TravelGoals


My first time ever being on an airplane was when the company flew me to Philadelphia for the interview. Luckily for me, I fell in love that day. I love flying. It always seems like you’re going somewhere, even if it’s just a ferry to the next city. Flights like that I used to feel like I was on a private jet, having an entire airplane to yourself and yelling throughout the cabin to the pilots, lol. That truly was a dream job.

I’m so in need of a vacation right now…

With no one other than the company of me, myself and I. And a good view of the water. And a soft breeze underneath the sun. I want to just sit out in the sun all day and sip on the champs and enjoy Eat, Pray, Love for the 3rd time over. Or maybe I’d pick up a Khaled Hosseii novel. A Thousand Splendid Suns has been on my list for the last 2 summers…

And the soundtrack to my vacation includes, the #QueenBey of course, with emphasis an on #Lemonade and other popular tracks like Grown Woman, Tamar Braxton’s Angels & Demons, some Jhene Aiko, a Rhianna and Tinashe’s 2 On.

I can not even express how relieved I am! This year has been good, but I have been so stressed trying to keep it all together and find balance with everything that I have going on. I feel so extremely blessed. Like I’m walking into the greatest season of my life. I literally wake up every day, expecting good news and I’m confident that it’s on its way to me. I’ll keep ya posted!
