God Is Good

Finally, a real outfit post!
It's been so hot that I've basically resolved to de-clothing (not a real word) as soon as I get in the car.
I even take off my bracelets and earrings because the thought of anything touching my skin in this 100+ degree weather makes me mental.

(I may have or may not have stolen this vintage dress from Juanette's  house this summer.)

(Vintage belt/bag/dress/sunglasses, Sam Edelman wedges)

Well, the dust has settled. The summer is winding down and I have so much to be grateful for.
I had the best wedding I could have and had some truly awakening moments this summer as to who is really on my team and who isn't.
Also, remember that post a few months ago...the one where I lost my job as a teacher because of silly reductions in funding?

Let's just say that since that day, I haven't had one day to be sad about it. I've been blessed in every way. I found a summer job to carry me through the summer and pay for little things for my wedding.

And I got another job! I'm still in education which I'd sworn off but that's what happens when I try to make my own plans and not follow God's plan.
As much as I want to be that creative chick...I still have bills.
So it was a blessing. And I didn't even have to look for a job...it came to me!

Creatively speaking, things keep getting better! Every since my debut as a video wardrobe stylist, I've had more great things come my way.
As soon as I can share, I will!
Things are good and finally falling into place and I couldn't be more appreciative!

P.S... I owe you guys two wedding posts...my take on the "process" (trust me I have alot to say about that!) and a run through of how it went down...it's coming.

I've been lurking for months but wanted to say hi, congrats on getting married (I celebrate my 1 yr anniversary next month!) and I live in Houston too. Love the blog and congrats on the new gig.

It is amazing how God works. My grandpa always said God's plan and your plan will be different...but trust that God's plan is better.

He is positioning you for something great...for you to follow your dreams.

Congrats on the new gig. I can't wait to learn what new opportunities have come your way.

Everybody needs you on their video set. I'm sick of seeing the same girl in the same outfit.

I love those shoes!!!

I have admired your attitude since I started following your blog a while back, and even more these past few months. Your blog is one I check every day, because it never fails to put a smile on my face.

Many blessings to you and the Mister!

Wow, that's a gorgeous dress! You have wonderful style and I love your "view" on life or whatever you want to call it, you're a positive person in the truest sense of the word.

I have been married for 11 years and wouldn't trade it for the world, it wasn't perfect and we have had our ups and downs. In the end that's what keeps us going. Be Blessed!!
