It’s 10:42PM and I’ve been debating how to figure out what would be the most appropriate way to recap the amazing weekend that I’ve had for Sevitember.
I decided to use everyone’s favorite photo sharing platform, Instagram, to relive the weekend (with a Facebook and Twitter post here and there).
Before I get into the debauchery, I need to share a few words of wisdom I put on my personal Facebook. It’s only right that I share these words here because honesty is my policy. I’ve been transparent about my struggles over the last year coping with my dad’s death, so it’s only right that I share my triumphs as I continue to move forward.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
I woke up this morning with a sense of peace and good fortune. There are no words to describe how incredibly lucky I am to have the people that I have in my life. Six months ago, I was struggling to figure out where I had gone wrong in life. Questioning my very existence and if I was strong enough to move forward. I have chosen to be unapologetically me. I’m a big personality, but I refuse to compromise and apologize for that. The people that matter know that I would give them the shirt off my back, move hills and mountains, and just be there during their time of need. HE has plans for me and I am prepared.
Here’s to 29!
So here I am – 29, divine, and coming off a weekend of the best times with my friends. So much fun and all documented through pictures from a sweet ride, karaoke, brunch, a little partying Greek, and a Dallas Blogger Collective event; this weekend was one for the books! Check it all out below!
@stephaniedrenka and I finally got to sing a song we have been wanting to karaoke for the longest! She basically is a professional and I make an honest pretend effort. Amazing night to celebrate a birthday with good friends ❤️ Shout out to @openingbellcoffee karaoke! #dallas #dallasite #takemeorleaveme #rent #Sevitember #karaoke A video posted by Ware is the Vodka?!?

Huge shout out to Public School 214 for being so accommodating to my large party with no hesitations!
Opa! Conquered the @greekfooddallas and have no regrets! @ernie_spicer, @jarguello, and I noshed on gyros, an appetizer plate, honey puffs (#toodiefor), feta bites, Greek festival combo plate, and washed it all down with Aegean Breeze! Tomorrow is the last day and I advise that you get out there and #partygreek #dallas #dallasite #greekfoodfestivalofdallas #foodie #dallasfoodie
Casually pretending that my living room looks half as fabulous as the gorgeous setups on display at @interiorcollectiontexas ❤️ Such a good time with @dallasbloggerco and learning how to step up my tablescape when throwing dinner parties! #dbcxtheinteriorcollection #dallas #dallasite #southlake #interiordesign #interiorcollection ?: @valerybrennan
Seriously, I couldn’t ask for a better weekend. It was everything I have ever wanted in a birthday weekend. Low key, simple, and surrounded by people who are amazing in my life. Now if I can actually catch up on some sleep…..
Make sure you come back on Wednesday to see if you are the winner of my ultimate birthday giveaway!
