It’s been 2.5 years since I blogged last and I wouldn’t even know how to catch up except to say, I feel like a different person today than I was then.

Since then we have moved into a new home. We have left the Chick-fil-A we owned in a mall and now have our very own free standing Chick-fil-A. We have an amazing team of over 100 employees šŸ˜± I have made new friends, re-connected with old and said goodbye to some. I have grown spriritually and learned more about who I am and the plans God has for me. After 5 years of marriage, I have learned more and more about how to be a better wife and love someone selflessly. I have opened an antique booth with my parents, something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve joined the junior council for Make-A-Wish foundation and have seen children’s wishes come true.

One thing that has remained the same is my desire to grow and learn and therefore I am coming back to this space because I want to write and share as I pursue my desire to be a Life Coach. I will be continuing to share new recipes, fresh findings and updates. Thanks for sharing this space with me.
