My 2018 Year in Review (Heavy in Pictures)

Time waits for no one and once again another year has come and gone. As I look back on everything I learned and experienced, I’m grateful.

Simply grateful.

When I look back through my pictures and remember all the things I was able to do this year, I’m still in shock.

Here are a few highlights of 2018:


  • Started the year turning 41
  • Did a TV Segment on Tampa Bay Good Morning with my former employer, Sparkle Skirts  
  • Bailee and I spoke at the Mommy & Me Dream Bigger Tour in Atlanta.


  • Black Panther Release 
  • Disney Social Media Moms Cruise 


  • Covered Disney Dreamers Academy in Orlando 
  • 1st Wine Tasting with my best friend
  • Covered Disney on Ice
  • Emory filmed a Disney Video. Don’t blink or you will miss him.


  • I spoke at Mom 2.0 Summit in LA. I had a blast too. LA holds a special place in my heart. 


  • Earl tore his Achilles – My husband was on crutches for 2 months! However, he handled his business the entire time. He’s self-employed and didn’t let this set back hold him back. 
  • Joined a Mastermind for Bailee’s Nail Box – This has been life changing for our business. 
  • Invited to visit Herndon Home – The first African American Millionaire in Atlanta. I lived in Atlanta for 17 years and never knew this gem of American History was right under my nose. Please visit this place if you’re ever in Atlanta. 
  • Previewed Disney’s H20 Night
  • Partnered with NBC for the Marlon Season 2 Premiere – Interviewed Essence Atkins via FB Live 


  • Walked in the 4th of July parade with our Chamber of Commerce
  • My oldest child turned 13 – my first teenager! Pray for me!
  • Started an amazing job with PwC. I love this company! LOVE THEM!
  • Joined a new church – Love First Christian Center


  • Bought our 1st Florida House – I haven’t written about our home yet because it was an experience that started out crazy but ended up perfect! I will share the story soon with updated pictures. We’ve since painted this house a new color too!
  • My youngest child started Kindergarten

It's official!! We're Florida homeowners!! 2 years ago this month we moved here and it's been an interesting ride learning Tampa and the surrounding cities. We've settled on a small city with a big community, and 15 minutes to the BIG CITY 😍. — Buying a house can be easy, hard, stressful or blissful depending on your loan officer & underwriter. We experienced all of these emotions during this process. The first company we went with was horrible and I wrote 1820 word blog post about it. However, my husband said don't publish that 🤣🤣🤣!!! We walked away and then worked with an amazing loan officer that closed our loan in 23 days! I guess everything really does happen for a reason and in God's perfect timing. – #Floridalife #FloridaHomeowners #valrico #Sold

December's 🌲 box is a Holiday Nail Box! 💅 In every Box we include a fun gift, this month it's Christmas Glasses 👓 Your daughter can wear these to school, all of the holiday parties and especially Christmas morning! To see what else comes in the Holiday Nail Box and get one for your daughter visit – They ship out in December. .. Bailee is my daughter who started Bailee's Nail Salon at 6 years old. She had a stand like a lemonade stand. Little Girls would line up to get their nails done for $5. We moved to Florida when she was 8 and launched Bailees Nail Box when she turned 9. Last month we launched our first subscription box (Unicorn Nail Box) Bailee will be 11 next month and she's still going hard on her business. We are learning each step of the way, but oh what a journey. . . A sincere thank you to everyone that has ever purchased a box, shared a picture, commented on a FB Live. We are grateful for it all. #BaileesNailBox #entrepreneur #kidsinbusiness #naildesigns #Subscribe

  • My first Christmas party w/ PwC – Epic

We also had a great first Christmas in our new home. 

2019 Plans?

I don’t have any resolutions. 

I’m claiming that 2019 will be an amazing year from the start. This will be the year that I make ME smile. I will grow on purpose.

I’d love to be happy in every area of my life, be the fittest, wealthiest, more successful I’ve been to date, speak Spanish fluently and travel to more cities/countries than previous years. 

Here’s to a new year!
