It's no secret that I love all things black and white- throw in a floral pattern and I'm in love for sure! I love this dress so much from karinadresses ! It's the perfect size floral pattern for me but it's also the best dress shape for my body type. I love the way it's a faux wrap adding interest but the vee neck elongates my body and the tie that wraps around my waist accentuates it. I talk about karinadresses all the time. It's because they are so easy to wear and easy to love! This dress is the Margaret style. It fits almost as a maxi on me but it's really a midi dress.

The print is so bold that minimal accessories are needed. I am wearing some bangle bracelets and earrings with mine. A small clutch or straw bag would also be perfect with this. It'

Maybe it's the fact that I am teaching every day now but I have become nostalgic and find myself reminiscing about my younger years when I was in school.

I've always been a bigger girl and I remember how this dress came in at the waist and made me feel good. My Senior

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade! Anyone else ever get tired of hearing all of the positive things? Why can't I just be sour? Why can't I just wallow in my own self-pity? Well, you can. You can do this, but is that any way that you want to live your life? Recently, life handed me some lemons. Like a lot of lemons. Like bushels and bushels of lemons. For a while, I was sour. I was bitter. I didn't look on the bright side. I chose to dwell on the negative. Why did these things happen to me? Why can't my life be great like everyone else? I didn't realize that the lemons were handed to me so that I could make something more of myself. So that I could learn to trust, to love, to learn, to teach. I didn't realize that I was being used and will continue to be used to do His work. Sometimes we have to go through the fire to made into something beautiful. How can I expect my life to be polished if I get upset at every little swipe that is made at me? Th
