Travels with my boys!

Travels with my boys!

In January 2018, I joined my God family in their annual holiday booking to Jamaica. Reservations were made for my boys and I to travel in Easter 2019. I put my deposit down and apart from making intermittent payments, I did not really think about it. Fast forward to March 2019 and out of no where I’m off on holiday next month. There were beach towels to purchase, currency to buy and a large amount of aeroplane entertainment planning required….

Goodbye 2018.. Hello 2019

  As I write this, I still cannot believe that 2018 is over.  Surely I can’t be the only one who is thinking, “where did the year go?”. This past year was a really adventurous for me, I started the year as a single mother and finished it back in relationship with the father of my children. I developed myself, accepted forgiveness in my heart and challenged myself in order to do what was right for myself and my family….
