Finding Joy In….the white man.

Hello everybody! Today I am back home in Arizona after spending 10 great days in Michigan, visiting family. We celebrated the marriage of one of my cousins, I went on a girls shopping trip to Chicago, and enjoyed laughing and catching up with cousins, aunts, and uncles that I haven’t seen in quite a while….

Finding Joy In… Choosing the right friends.

Happy Tuesday Everybody!! I am currently in beautiful Marshal, Michigan. I grew up in Michigan  before moving to Arizona at age 9 and every summer we come back to visit family.

Finding Joy In…Fat burners! Which ones you should use.

It’s August!!! Already!? That’s crazy. Last week my dad was here to celebrate his birthday. Together we saw Neil Diamond in concert. (yes I was the youngest one in the entire stadium) But my dad is the biggest Neil Diamond fan you will ever meet. He sang every song at the top of his lungs!…

#4 Finding Joy In…Getting Fat

   Today was amazing. Yet again. I laugh when I think about how scared I was the first day. Don’t get me wrong it’s still a scary place. As long I’m in the hotel or the orphanage I feel pretty safe. Tonight though we ventured out into the streets to go to “Papa Rons pizza”…

#3 Finding Joy In… Being At Peace

Day 4: Today was incredible. I’m going to make this one shorter than my last because I have nothing negative to say. We started the day with breakfast. I can be a picky eater and I didn’t recognize almost any of the food. So I grabbed the only thing that looked familiar to me…a donut….
