Wednesday Wegdes + Milk Braids + Personal Talk

Happy HUMP Day!

Woot. Woot.
I've had this dress for a while, but when I paired it with these cute nude wedges, I fell in love with the look. It's so simple, yet the makeup, hair and accessories complete it.
It was my first time attempting milk braids and I didn't realize how easy they are to make. I will definitely be wearing this hair style more often.
Ever since my health issues this past fall, I finally feel more at peace. 
I am in a better place. I am starting to feel comfortable in my skin again. 
But most importantly, I am grateful for good health. 
It's not till you have something happen, that you realize what you had before. 
I also pray so hard for those that don't have good health and are struggling with an illness. 
I know it's hard. Especially because it's out of your control. Stay positive and know that the Lord is with you every step of the way.
Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you guys. I feel like we are all friends here right? :)
I've been blogging for over five years now and I've shared with you guys everything. 
So, I feel it's important to share my thoughts and feelings or simply my life experiences on things that have happened or are happening. 
After all, you never know who you might inspiring, who is watching you (especially on the Internet!), who might stumble across my site and this could be a little help to them. 
About a month ago, I was baptized. If you follow me on IG you probably saw I posted a pic.
It was extra special because I asked my husband to baptize me. Super cool, right?!
Anyway, it was a very special moment in my life. My walk with Christ has not been easy, especially when I had my health issues. You know how it is... When times get rough you question your beliefs, if he even cares or if he has abandoned you. 
But now I realize that he is the one that pushed me through. 
He was my comforter. He was my healer. I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for my Savior. 

Before my baptism, I shared my testimony with about 15 strangers and my husband. I was an emotional wreck! I started crying as soon as I started to share my story. When I finished telling them my pitfalls, my struggles, my hardships and how I came to know Jesus...
 It hit me. 
My life has changed. 
My life has changed for the better. 
Because I believe in him my life is different.

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy.
