Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Happy Friday to you!

Holidays always get me into a jovial mood. What’s better than time off from work to hang out with family and friends? With the 4th of July comes additional perks: fireworks, grilled food, and patriotic treats & costumes. Speaking of patriotic attire, check out my previous post for the best in Independence Day style. All in all, I am really appreciative of this current season in my life. Thank God for this weekly opportunity to share with you all the reasons I have to be grateful. I cannot stress it enough how important it is to give thanks in all circumstances. I experience the benefits of a grateful heart every day of my life. I want you to join in on the fun! Therefore, in the comment section below, feel free to write your own gratitude list. It doesn’t have to be long and it doesn’t have to be short. All that matters is that you take time out to appreciate the great things happening in your life. Without further ado, here’s my list for the week.

2 Timothy 3:1 You must understand this, that in the last days distressing times will come. 2 For people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, brutes, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to the outward form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid them! 6 For among them are those who make their way into households and captivate silly women, overwhelmed by their sins and swayed by all kinds of desires, 7 who are always being instructed and can never arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
