8 Years.........



Eight years ago I said "I Do!"  Eight years I made the best decisions I've ever made, and married the only man I've ever loved.  I married my high school and college sweetheart, and I married the man the Lord truly blessed me with. 


To say I love our life together is an understatement.  I absolutely adore our life together.  Matt is my best friend, my support, my rock, and most of all he has my entire heart.  I simply love the way he loves me. I love our inside jokes, and our family sweet family of "5" (Matt, the Davis Boys, and Me..LOL!!)


I thank the Lord each and every day for blessing me and making me Matt's wife.  And, what a beautiful love story ours is, and I am so blessed that the cute senior in my high school asked me out 19 years ago today, and our journey has been amazing. 


I love you Matt Davis, and I am so excited for all the future has in store for us!!

I love you so very much, and so excited for all this next year has in store for us!

7 Things I Believe



Since I kicked off the week with a little Getting to Know Me post, I thought I would follow up with another fun Things I Believe post!  Enjoy!

1. I believe that being a kind, loving, and giving person is the only way to be.
 

2. I believe that best friends are rare, and loyalty is the most precious virtue one can have in a friendship. 

3. I believe that the key to happiness is keeping your priorities in line.
My Priorities (In Order): God, Husband, Family, Work, Friends, Church, and Other Activities. Anytime I have a decision to make, I always find out what categories the two choices fall into, and the decision is easy.

4. I believe that being positive will not only bring you more peace, but will it also bring you success.
This includes in keeping a positive mindset, keeping my words positive when others are critical, or being positive in all areas of life.

5. I  believe that when someone wants to walk out of your life, let them go.
I've chased two friendships in my life, and I have never experienced so much heartache and sadness. 



6. I believe in working hard and always giving more than people expect.  At the end of the day, its important to lay your head down and know you did all you could that day. No regrets!! 

7. I believe that the most important thing in life is having a relationship with Jesus Christ. When you have a true relationship with the Lord then life is simply amazing.  The peace, guidance, wisdom, and love that fills your life is incredible.


Happy Tuesday!

Love these colors!!

What I Am Loving Wednesday...........

Its been ages since I've done a "What I'm Loving" post, but I've been really wanted to share a new haircare line that I have been loving lately.  

Goodbye Aveda, Hello Oribe

I have been an Aveda girl for nearly 20 years; however, over the past few months I really haven't been happy with the shape of my hair.  So, after a few weeks of reading reviews on numerous haircare products I have found a new haircare line I simply love. When I went and had my hair done a few weeks ago, I asked the stylists if she would recommend some products, and I haven't been disappointed yet. 


Here are a few products I'm loving:

Oribe - Signature Shampoo
Smells amazing and overall a great shampoo

 
Oribe - Gold Lust Conditioner
Oh my!  This leaves my hair so soft, yet not heavy. 

Oribe - Royal Blowout 
By far my favorite product.  It has cut my drying time down to less than 5 minutes.  
Which is unheard of for me. 

 Oribe - Styling Cream
This styling product holds my curls and is does not weigh my hair down.
 Oribe - Beach Waves Spray
I am actually on the fence with this one.  I like how if calms flyways on top of my head; however, its a little too much hold for the ends of my hair.  If I use on my ends, it really weighs the hair down. 


If you are looking for a new haircare line, I would definitely recommend checking this one out. 
I am so glad I did.
