Be happy.


To be happy, you need to surround yourself with happiness. If you like to sing, sing all the time. If you like to read, read all the time. Never let anyone take away your happiness. Even if your happiness lives in another state. Above: Brandon and I. Happy on Lincoln Road (Miami, FL).

Being in a long distance relationship is never easy. I will not lie, it does not get easier. Still, it does not get harder. Each goodbye, ends in tears, and each hello, begins with a smile.

I find the most joy within my family, my friends, and my faith, but I want to take a moment to recognize my joy for writing. I have been blessed with a passion to write. “Rawcouture” has given me a voice and a chance to be heard. And so, though I’m a plane ride away from one happiness, I come home to another.
