40 before 40

“Blaow! Tadow! Watch out now, uh-huh
It’s the Lil’ one and I’m not Bow Wow.” Yes I went completely old school with that lol.


Oh my goodness, I can’t believe in 2-years, I’ll be hitting the 40-year-old train. I never thought God would bless me this far let alone 40 being even in sight. Yes, I’ve been through three open heart surgeries, two c-sections and a few miscarriages but, I’m here now and I thank God everyday.

Navigating through life, I’ve experienced so many wonderful things:
Getting married
Having children
My bachelors degree,
Our first home
Family cruise and
Working on being debt free

Although all of this is exciting and God has truly been grateful to us, I would love to accomplish a few more things in the next two years. I pray God continue to pour down the blessings.
