Wedding In Jamaica

Hello Loves,

The main reason for my recent trip to Jamaica was for one of my best  friend’s wedding.  Not to mention I had the honor of being her bridesmaid.  It was definitely a blessing to witness the beautiful nuptials between these two people who love each other in such a beautiful setting.  There is also nothing like being surrounded by family and friends to witness your holy union.

The wedding took place on the beach at the beautiful Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort in Lucea, Jamaica.   I wish M&Z a forever type of marriage with lots of happiness and blessings.  The genuine love between these two is truly inspiring.

Fast & Easy Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Hi Loves,

 

Many will agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  A healthy breakfast can give your morning a boost of energy or can leave you cranky and bogged down for the rest of the day if you skip it or opt for an unhealthy highly processed one.  For a few years now I have made breakfast a priority to avoid eating the first unhealthy item my eyes connects with. Once you get the hang of making breakfast every morning it really becomes second nature.
