LaToi or as I like to be called Toi is from Lancaster, PA. Yes there are more than just Amish and outlets. I currently reside in Philadelphia, PA with my husband of 6 years we have 3 beautiful children.
I am an avid reader and my special place is any and all bookstores. I’m like a cool nerd and I am totally okay with it. I love things of comfort. I love comfort foods and anything that makes me have all the feels. I am down to earth but love a little lavish here and there. By lavish I am talking about a little splurge on a warm drink or even a new journal. Hey, I got 3 kids so I love my little quirks that don’t cost an arm and a leg.
This blog was birthed from my desire to write. I have many girlfriends who text me daily about all kinds of topics and have encouraged me to do this as a hobby. When I first began I was so scared to post anywhere but on my personal Facebook page. I connected with other bloggers and they began to show me the ropes in that now I have a separate Facebook page, own my web domain, have other social media outlet and had to ask myself if this was just a hobby or something I wanted to turn into reality. By the mere fact that you stumbled across me says I chose the latter. This has been a beautiful dream. This dream isn’t without dedication, hard work, and trial and error as I continue to grow!
I hope to bring awareness to women’s issues. We are the most nurturing people but often times that leaves us empty shells. As I pour out I am aware of the need to pour into myself. This is a way for me to speak to those quiet places that most if not all women deal with but are too afraid to speak up.
I use my own life with its not so perfect condition. I am okay in my flaws and my skin. I am direct. If you looking for the cookie cutter blog, this ain’t yo momma’s blog. I am going to call a spade a spade even if that means highlighting an area where I have had an epic fail. Failures is what birthed this blog. Through failure comes redemption and grace and that is the very place that I choose to live!
My hope is that you find these topics informative. Some topics are light while others due to the nature of discussion hit on the very issues that we all face. It could be of that of losing in life, feeling overwhelmed, trying to figure out how to deal with a loved on or separating from a situationship that is no longer serving. It could be as light as attending some of the most awesome events while I am on the go either by myself or with the fam bam! I also hope to have fun and expand this as far as my dream wings will fly. Let’s all glean from each other! Enjoy!
