Hi.

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

Happy Sunday to you!

As human beings, it can be so easy to complain during the difficult moments in our journey. There are times when the lows seem more frequent than the highs. Admittedly, we spend too much time griping about our problems and too little time giving thanks. Some of you may be thinking, “What reason(s) do I have to express thanks?" I, too, have been at that place before. However, I have learned throughout the years that gratitude makes a difference. Gratitude heals and empowers. Gratitude produces blessings. Therefore, tonight I want to give thanks. It’s quite awhile since I posted my weekly gratitude list. I need to write one and you need to join me. Let’s show God that we’re aware of His presence, His love, and His provision. Let’s let the world know all the great things that God is doing in our lives. After you read my gratitude list, visit the comment section and share your own. It’s always good time to give thanks!
