Love what you do, and love who you are.

I believe when you follow your calling,  your absolute passion for what you want to accomplish in life and career, you will be genuinely happy.  There are always going to be bumps in the road, but such is life.

I have decided that I am going to be taking a much needed vacation from blogging. I know I am not a consistent blogger but I am exhausted and need some time for my entire self to recharge and refresh.  I want to solely focus on my family, my friends and my passion for hair.  My love for fashion and makeup is also something that I absolutely enjoy as well and love sharing with you all. I will continue to share these passions solely on my instagram account.  If you follow, stay tuned and feel free to follow along.  I will be posting from time to time  photos of  before and after pictures from my clients at the salon,  try some fun photo shoots with hair and makeup, and just enjoying life and truly soaking it all in without having to worry about anything else.

First of all, I want to explain myself a little bit more on something that unfortunately occured a short time ago.  To those of you who have followed me on my blog, instagram or twitter I greatly appreciate your support.  And I want to clarify some things that people may be confused about or wondering why.   I blogged a short time ago about a person who hurt me deeply.  I did post some quotes and images on my instagram  that appeared negative or confusing, but it was completely from MY PERSPECTIVE.  MY FEELINGS.  No names were mentioned.  Nothing about what actually happened.   Just feelings.  I was called an online bully, a slanderer, and a harasser.  I did none of those things. I never mentioned the persons name or what occured between the person involved.  All were things that were simply from my point of view.  I posted some curse words and I am sorry to anyone I offended because of that.   I am a person who is going to stick up for myself and stand up for what I believe to be wrong and hurtful.  Some people perceive me as weak because I am nice and personable.  I am not.  I am a human being who makes mistakes, takes risks, follows my passions and still learning to be a good mother to my daughter and a good wife to my husband.   So there is that.  I have moved on.  I am much happier because of it. I definitely held onto it for longer than I should have but I was in extreme pain.  I learned why the dynamic of some friendships have changed and people's true colors.  It's a huge weight that has been lifted.   I have since removed all of the things I posted including the blog post about my negative experience because frankly its my business and I felt the point was made and following that I wanted to erase negative energy.  Call me crazy, weird or mean....I do not care.   If you have been wronged by a person who never apologized, acknowledged any wrong doing on their part, STICK UP FOR YOURSELF.  Understood?

From now on, this  blog space will be solely for sharing pictures of my family, friends and last but not least my passion for hair, makeup and fashion!   I have hands down the best job in the world.  I am so lucky.  I work with incredibly talented people who fill me up and allow me to be myself and be inspired.  So, if you are still wondering what my intentions are when speaking about people who have wronged me,  believe this.....I am going to be good to you if you are good to me.  I will support, encourage, and love you.   Simple as that.

Let's lighten things up here shall we?

First of all,  I wanna lighten the load up in here.  Yesterday's post was a sense of closure for me and sometimes writing and letting it all out can really make you feel so much better.  So thanks to you all who read and commented.  Means a lot.   I do not think that way every day, but when your hurt.....let's be real all kinds of emotions are released.

Now on to some sunshine.  And some humor.  

Life living with a toddler has definitely made me almost pee my pants (well I admit, I do pee a little in the pants after hard laughing because my bladder control after birth is jacked).

So, does your toddler love to dance?  Sure they do, they are exploring their individuality.  Does your boy or girl dance like this?

Well, my Finley does.  Sorry B, Finley stole your moves.  

Do they like to try and eat in your pets food bowls?

I've caught Finley several times.....LOL and attempting to lick water out of Chloe's water bowl.

Haha,  this is what my hubby and I say to one we have a lock in the back room to prevent our child from indulging in the dog food.  I mean, lets face it the kid likes to eat.  And she does not discriminate.  

How about this?  Does your lil bundle of joy yell at bums heckling you in a downtown street setting? Finley does, she shocked me last week by screaming "MOOOOOOO"  (this is how she says no at the moment), while we were walking downtown Madison on a nice day.  I have to give her props, she has the pipes to scream anyones eardrums right out.  

Anywho, those are just few of many shenanigans that Finley does that keeps me on my toes, makes me laugh, and makes me smile on the daily.  

Thanks for reading,

xo, D
