Do you believe it? It’s here already!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me through the year!
Wishing you the best for the New Year!
I started the year with this lovely woman and I’m ending the year with her; simply love and admire her!
Not for her beauty alone; she’s so, so, much more! A beautiful woman who has brains! A wife, a mother and a business woman – her tenacity has brought her to this point in her life to celebrate how hard she’s worked; by ending with an exciting and wonderful year!
We often hear about other publicized supermodel accomplishments – however there are others who are just as important! And yes, Cynthia…. she is a SUPER MODEL! And so relatable!
A Piscean just as I, she is driven and totally clear on her goals! Busy to say the least, loving wife and mother continually being sort out for photo shoots, part of the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s franchise; her willingness to share for others coming after her is so commendable.
The Bailey Agency School of Fashion is going strong! With her vision, through her agency, successfully performed a model search where the winner, Nissa landed a contract with Click Models!
I will be travelling to Atlanta, GA in a couple of months and will be stopping by. It’s a new year coming, where new ideas and new beginnings will be part of another young woman’s or man’s life at the agency!
Sometimes you do have to stick your neck out in an effort to make a positive change for yourself. The most important factor in figuring it all out, on just what to do; then make that step!!
You’ll never know will you? If by chance there’s someone around that may give you advice… take it and listen! Whatever you are interested in!
As always, wishing you the best to you and your family for the new year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Here’s to 2013! Be safe and Enjoy!

Hasn’t this year just flown by? We are so busy, at least I am! There is always something to do, to get fixed, to remember and to pay for!! You do the best that you can and often at the end of the year; it’s about reflecting. You decide what’s important to keep up or to make better.
So here I am with my reflecting. I am not going to bore you with my long list, but I’m looking back and seeing what I can do, let’s say hoping to do better. It’s good to have goals, but nothing is etched in stone, because life is life.
One thing I am truly happy about is that I decided to work on the most popular item for improvement this year, being healthy and exercising. So this past October, I have been really exercising consistently; decided to prepare my own food for lunch, shop locally at the farms for fresh produce near my home and make a conscious decision of my food choices when dining out!
I must say, I do feel better and it’s been a daily effort. Now, please do not think for one minute, that I do not crave for the those sugary treats, I DO! I do not deprive myself, I have it….but do exercise a little more to compensate <my weakness is Oreo cookies, I take 3 cookies and split them to make 6 cookies! Smart right? It’s a mind trick!>.
Now, I haven’t put any pressure on myself and there’s no made up glorious weight number to meet, I just have concentrated on eating right and being healthy. Just by simply logging into Lance Armstrong‘s www.livestrong.com website, I am able to update what I am eating to find my calorie intake and that’s it*. If interested, you can set up a free account.
Now, then it’s those things that I tried to complete before this year ends because they were on my list for the year prior to this one!!!! I am happy to say, I scratched some off! To name a few, I finally plastered the ceiling from a bathroom leak, saw my brother and his family in Fort Wayne, IN <so happy>, even though my kitchen smoke alarm went off quite often – I finally can broil a medium-rare steak successfully, loaded about 60 CDs on my Ipod and lastly; stuck to my budget outlined since last year!
Now, it’s a new year, for what you did n’t do this year, just write it down for 2011 and work towards it; that’s all! Yes, there are still things to do, but we are coming into a brand new year, we all have goals, lists and those day-to-day challenges each and every one of us are facing; but in the midst of it all…. remembering to enjoy life, take time to spend time with your family and see your friends a bit more often…these are the things which are most important!
I want to take a moment to thank you ALL for your readership, your questions and your support; it’s really been so much fun! Wishing you and yours the best!
Have a safe and wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year! See you in Twenty-eleven!
