Happiest of New Years to You!

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee

In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure
A year in the life?

How about love?

With the new year comes many changes. Besides trying to remember putting 2011 on everything, I am in the market for a job, weight loss, and bittersweet reflections on the past year. Change is inevitable, I cannot alter it so I am choosing to embrace it.

Looking forward to God's presence and divine purpose in my life in 2010, I mean 2011!

I was dreaming of a White Christmas and my Dreams came true!

Murry Christmas, y'all!

A fresh falling of snow in Atlanta, Georgia on Christmas day was more magical than I could have imagined! Sometime around 1:00 pm it started flurrying and eventually accumulated to 3 inches! The backdrop was just perfect to celebrate the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ. The turkey was delicious and so was the red velvet cake! I am so thankful to my friend and her family that graciously invited me and made me feel so incredibly special! They are such sweet people! It was so memorable that it made me exclaim: It's a wonderful Life!

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

Quick Trip to Savannah

I have a great friend in Savannah. 
During a recent quick trip we did some window shopping at multiple antique malls yet bought nothing, hung out with some friends, saw some lights, watched a dumb movie, ate some good food and saw some cool art. I even enjoyed sitting around with a cup of peppermint coffee and looking at the river. Even though my trip to Savannah was quick it really put me in the Christmas spirit. I feel blessed to have such great connections there.
