First Post of the Year: Pleats, Polka Dots & Color Blocked

Hello divamoms & divas,

I hope the start of 2012 has been everything you’ve anticipated.

I really enjoyed the holidays with KT.  My mom didn’t come to visit this year and that was hard but I resolved to celebrate, relax and read.

That is exactly what I did. I read a novel a day for 4 days. I was poolside. I ate well. Fellowshipped with extended family and good friends. Cooked. Ate. Shopped for KT. He even got a me a gift. How hot are these Jessica Simpsons heels?

I always allow KT to buy me a gift for the holidays. He did really good, yes? I've worn them to church two weekends in a row. Bishop Shipman commented on them. They are certainly a conversation starter. 

I have so much to share with you all. I’ve been spending time in prayer. Mentally preparing for some MAJOR changes to occur in my life. The end of last year I learned a bit more about what I want in a relationship and love. Yeah LOVE. I’m always thinking of the scene in Love Jones when they Isaish Washington (forgive me for not remembering his character’s name) comments about everyone wants to be in love but no one is talking about how to say there. Y’all know I tried to find the clip on YouTube J
What I do know is I’m feeling like the sky is the limit this year if I stay grounded and connected to the Heavenly Father. I'm started aerobics last night night at my church which includes Zumba. I'm enjoying the hair growth journey. My heart is open for new friendships and maybe even a loving relationship.  So stay tuned. 

100 apologies to my fellow bloggers!!! Im trying to catch up on your posts and I plan to. Those of you who know my true blogger etiquette please charge it to anything other than me not caring about connecting online with you.

Air Kisses,

Love the shoes! Your son did great. I understand taking time to reflect on life and what you want. I didn't even want to think about getting in a relationship after my horrible experiences but I took the time to get me right and focus on becoming a better person. Little did I know I was preparing myself for love and without even expecting anything I met someone who makes me want to love again.

Happy New Year to you!

Happy New Year my loves! Thanks for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments. I see the first thing I need to do is find a way to be able to respond to individual replies. KT is a wonderful son. If you could see him swipe my card and "buy" my gift you'd see why he's an angel sent to make me a better woman. I do believe in love and I'm still dreaming. Thanks for being a part of the journey. Blessings to each of you.

Go head, KT! You've raised a winner! He'll make his wife one happy lady!! LOL OKAY. I'm getting ahead of myself. But, hey! JS makes great looking comfy shoes.

Re: love: stay true to your first love (JESUS) and I believe he will bless you with an earthly stable companion.

Happy New Year!

Love the combination of color and prints. Fabulous! I see Palm trees in the background and I don't know if that's Florida, Hawaii etc, but I am so jealous right about now.
