A Look Back at 2017

Hey everyone!

Can you believe we are only a couple of days from the New Year. This is officially my last post of the year! Today I just wanted to round-up some of my favorite moments and some milestones I am very proud of with my blog. This year was a big one, and it was a year of first, from my first sponsored international trip, to my first trip to New York Fashion Week and getting to be a hair extra on E News with Marianna Hewitt! I was able to accomplish so many of my goals including doubling my Pinterest, and Instagram following, to reaching 10k views on one of my YouTube videos! I’ve also had the opportunity to work with a talent agent, partnered in some amazing events, and even tripled my blogging income! But most of all I was able to grow my brand, and grow my network by meeting so many amazing people along the way. I honestly couldn’t have done it without the support of everyone who has followed along on this journey. So thank you, thank you for being part of this journey with me and I hope you enjoy this recap of my blogging year in 2017.

A LETTER TO MY SON FROM YOUR #1 FAN

This post in probably my favorite and I get teary eye reading it. This year has been as special year for me and Jayden. Our mother and son bond grows every year, and every year I can’t help but think I am so blessed to be his mommy. He is my pride and joy, and I don’t know if even all the words I have written can truly describe the immense feeling of love I have for my son. All I can describe it is the ever lasting love Jesus had for us. No matter what, I would give up my life for my child in a heart beat. He is everything to me.
