Hello! Happy LAST DAY OF 2019!! I cannot believe today marks the end of a decade. 2019 has been such a good year for me and I think I have grown SO much in just one year.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane as I highlight some of my favorite parts of the year with you.

Along with these highlights, there were some others “behind the scenes” & some I shared on here:
My Mom & I sold our cosmetics store & I transitioned into becoming a “full time housewife” which was my favorite job ever.
I totally TRUSTED in the Lord with all of my heart.
I truly found peace within myself and in my body image.
I said GOODBYE to the number on the scale and no longer let that control me.
I drew closer to God and relied on Him in all circumstances.
I stopped taking birth control pills (what?! More on that later).
We went on ONE vacation this whole year, just one.
I went through two Invisalign treatments & am finally happy with my smile.
I grew up a lot.

2019 was truly a great year, but I really cannot wait to see what 2020 has in store for us. I am “officially” starting my new job this year (my first week was “training”), and Michael is starting his new career also. SO much change ahead. It is scary, but it is so exciting. I am wishing you so much happiness and many blessings in 2020! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Xoxo!
