9 Months Old & 25 Years Old

What’s happening in my world.


I have been MIA because real life has just been happening in the best way possible!

Doing Birthday Differently

This year I turned 25 years old! I decided I was going to have fun and do something I haven’t done in a while. I traveled to D.C. to the National Portrait Gallery! I have not been in years and what a refreshing experience it was. It filled up my artist’s heart. Here are a couple of pieces I really loved! Below are pieces from exhibitions Hung Lui and The Outwin 2022.

Sanai is 9 Months Old

This past week Sanai turned 9 months old


Sanai is only 3 months from being one year old. She has leaped through so many new skills in the last month! She has tasted lemon, learned to throw everything overboard (cheerios, her bottle, keys), says “Hi!” and even took her first steps! She is teething right now so she has been wanting lots of cuddles and soft foods. She can bounce and likes being tossed in the air by daddy. She loves to throw her hands up in the air when you say ” So Big!”  She also can bounce and when she isn’t paying attention will stand by herself! My guess is she will be walking by next month what do you think?




Finding the Joy

Welcome to my blog. I talk about choosing joy, to me, that means believing God is good and there is hope in the face of difficulty. I also talk about my goals and challenges. I believe in perseverance, grit, dreaming big, and choosing to challenge yourself to be better than yesterday. 

What does it mean to be a part of the #JoyJourney?


It means to choose JOY in the good and bad!
It means we focus on our goals!
It means we challenge ourselves to do better!
