Four Days at Universal Studios Orlando: Islands of Adventure

Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are two distinctly different parks. I wouldn't say that one is better than the other, instead I'd say that they complete each other. Most of the rides at Universal Studios are indoors and family friendly.  Islands of Adventure features a few more roller coasters and thrill seeking rides. If you love water rides,...

Four Days at Universal Studios Orlando 

Universal Studios Orlando holds a very special place in my heart. Many of my best childhood memories were made there. I've seen many rides come and go like jaws, twister, disaster ride, and back to the future. I've been slimed at Nickelodeon studios. A lot of things have changed with time, but my love for...

Reflecting on April

April was amazing and May has been great so far. In April I had my hair in this wonderful protective style, and not having style my hair was the best feeling in the world. It didn't hurt that I got a lot of compliments too, who doesn't love compliments! In the photo below on Friday April 7,... Continue Reading →

She spoke about when she first arrived here, and a family member took her to visit a few... Continue Reading →

Foggy Mornings, Cherokee Casino, and Downtown Asheville

I really enjoy the whole resort experience that you get in a casino. From the restaurant to the shops, to walking along the... Continue Reading →

Turning Social Media Envy into Motivation

I've never been a huge fan of social media. I'll make a post on Facebook and Instagram once every few months. Sometimes I feel like I'm on the outside looking in. Looking in at perfect beautiful life changing moments, endless success, great relationships, and amazing trips. I usually feel genuinely happy, but sometimes envy tries... Continue Reading →

Just Because Roses

There's something so special about receiving "just because" gifts. No matter how small the gift is, I get so excited about it. Just the idea that someone thought of me and wanted to make me smile.  I began last week focusing on gratitude. I guess it's true that when you're grateful, you get blessed with...

What I learned by taking the Myers Briggs Personality Test 

I randomly found myself taking the Myers Briggs Type Indicator test and surprisingly my results were spot on. This test breaks down  16 different personality types. There are four categories that make up a personality type. Attitude: Introversion(I) or Extraversion(E) Perceiving: Intuition(N) or Sensing(S) Judging: Thinking(T) or Feeling(F) Lifestyle: Judging(J) or Perceiving(P) My personality type...
