Goodbye Summer : Life and Travel Updates


I can't believe how fast the summer flew by! This has been a jam packed and exciting past couple months for me and definitely a summer to remember. I haven't given a life & travel update in a month so let's play some catch up..

I just returned from a quick weekend trip to St. Louis, MO for Joyce Meyer Love Life Women's Conference. I had the opportunity to spend time with a dear friend, hear encouraging speakers and worship my God with over 15,000 women!

St Louis is such a "neat" town and only 270 miles from Chicago so it makes for an easy road trip. We also had a chance to check out one of the more popular tourist destinations, Sweetie Pie's Kitchen. Made famous for her reality show on OWN Network this soul food joint was packed and worth the wait. I indulged on some catfish, cornbread and mac n cheese. Ahh southern comfort food!

Traveling together is a great way to relax and re-connect with your partner. Leaving the comforts of your home and the grind of your daily routine for just a few days can be a gamechanger in your relationship.
