#31stories~Day 15| Vegetables

I love cooking with bell peppers They are one of the vegetables that I can cook really with anything. You can add them to fajitas or to salads if you’re adventurous. There are many great things to do with them and I’m hoping to incorporate them more into my diet.

I am officially, once again, back on my weight loss journey. This is the last part of my journey since giving birth to my baby girl and I am determined to get the rest of the weight off. Check out my weight loss journey over on my family blog site aloveybeginning.blogspot.com


31 Stories|The Vow



Day 6 Jewelry


My wedding ring is my favorite piece of jewelry. Our wedding rings represent so much to me. The power in owning these rings and the vows we took to get them, is such a big deal to me. I am in a interracial marriage and to know that our marriage wouldn’t have been legal before 1967 is beyond my belief.

I have been so grateful to have my best friend as my husband, who has looked past my differences as I have his. We saw  through to our souls and found a very loving spiritual connection. My spiritual growth has grown so much over the years. And even more so now that I’m married and have a family. We took our vows and promised to uphold each other every step of the way. We could not do that without being spiritually connected.

That is what these rings mean to me, and it’s what I’ll profess every time someone asks.

(Special Note: My first macro ring shot with 50mm 1.8g. I’m so glad I had a reason to shoot it)

I am a big foodie and what I love the most is soup anytime of the season. I decided to play a little bit with the concept of traditional steak and potato soup in a bowl.

I chose a beautiful tea cup and plate set that I bought from a thrift store. I love great finds like these from little vintage shops.

This is my first actual food photography image. I have a long way to go but I’m studying it to become better. I decided to do a vintage edit on my image to give it more a warm feeling.

Love the way it turned out.

What’s your favorite soul food?
