I am beyond excited right now! I was nominated by two beautiful bloggers Gina’s Blog and ToksDavid for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, Ladies!!!! Both of these blogs I thoroughly enjoy! They both exhibit amazing writing and post! Please go check them out!

The Rules
A) Thank the person that has nominated you & include a link to their blog.
B) Nominate at least 15 blogs of your choice.
C) Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.
D) Share seven different facts about yourself.

My Nominees: I’m nominating 5 for now due to time restraints.






Now here’s the hard part, sharing facts about myself, go figure.


  1. I have about six novels in my head that I’m yet to get on paper. I’m working on it though.
  2. My favorite author, and I just recently stumbled upon her is Chimamanda Adiche
  3. I love Star Wars
  4. One of  my favorite T.V. Shows is Reign
  5. I am obsessed with making a list for everything.
  6. I have kept all of my dairies/journals since I was 8. Its pretty interesting reading the thoughts of eight year old me.
  7. My favorite color is yellow, but I like to decorate with red and I prefer wearing the colors blue and green. I guess, I’m slightly confused.

Thanks again ladies for the nomination! I truly, truly appreciate it!!!

KISS & TELL: Dear Husband

Dear Husband,

I am slightly hesitant to write this open letter because our marriage is sacred to me. Yet, at times, I wish a camera could briefly hone in on our real-life fairytale. Not for show, but for inspiration and proof that love can be pure, love can be fun, and love can be genuine.

Dear husband, I remember the very first email you sent me. It was simple, yet sweet; sweet enough for me to wonder immediately after if you would be my last first date

Dear husband, you get on my nerves sometimes and at times, I want to punch you in the face, but more than anything I just want to make up with you because I hate it deeply when we fight.

Dear husband, I’m aware I get on your nerves too and you probably want to say some pretty mean things to me in those moments. I’m so thankful that you never do.

Dear husband, I am sorry about how mean I was to you the other day and still, you brought me back my favorite candy when you went to the store. Now, that’s love. : )

Dear husband, I love how incredible of a father you are. I always knew you would be, but to see you interact with our son is the most priceless gift.


Dear husband, thank you for filling our home with laughter and laughing at my corny jokes.

Dear husband, thank you for letting me be my goofy, awkward self which I’ve never been quite comfortable showing anybody else.

Dear husband, thank you for breaking out in dance for no reason, especially when there’s no music.

Dear husband, I love to see you fixing things around the house. It is the sexiest thing in the world to see you exit the attic dirtied with sawdust, and particle board.

Dear husband, thank you for making me feel safe: spiritually, emotionally, and financially.

Dear husband, I look forward to growing old with you, watching you live out your dreams, and checking off our bucket list together.

Dear husband, I am proud and I absolutely enjoy being YOUR wife

Dear husband, I hope when you read this that it will make you smile. : )

Dear husband, I love you more than I did yesterday and I hope to love you more tomorrow than I do today.

Happy Five year Anniversary!
