My Summer Highlights 2018

Today is the last day of Summer and I am content on how it went for me. This Summer was an unusual Summer for me due to three reasons.

1.My Baptism Anniversary 

Last year I gave my life to Jesus Christ and shortly after I was baptized. I have lived a full year walking with Christ. This thought alone amazes me. While I reflect, I cant help myself from smiling. It’s been more than 365 days since I said yes to my lord and savior and my life has never been the same. Such a blissful journey, filled with miracle signs and wonders.

Girlll, It was as if God waiting for me at the door! As soon as I said yes, he began to do immediate changes in and through my life. Cleaning things out of my heart, mind and spirit. Easy is not a word that I would use, but I would say that this walk has been meaningful. I learned not to underestimate God on what he can do in a day, let alone one whole year!

I am humbly at peace and in awe with the love of God. Because of my life transformation, I stepped into this Summer with a new mind set prepared to overcome any challenge that came my way. And that I did! Glory to God!


2. Summer Teaching 

At first this idea made me nervous because I am a fairly new teacher and I never taught during the summer. I had to remind myself that God has plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

In fact, at the end of it all I realized that I learned things I did not know about being a teacher and I also learned a lot about my students. My students and I shared unforgettable moments that I will forever cherish, throughout my teaching career.  I admit that at times I felt like I was on a roller coaster BUT it was an experience that I had to go through in order to learn things that will help me improve as a teacher and overall a person.


3. Traveling

I love to travel. I find pure joy in planning for a trip, sitting inside of a plane, checking in to a hotel and being a tourist. I love it all! This Summer I visited Washington D.C, Hawaii and Texas. I have been to Washington a few times in the past, I enjoy my visit all the time. I love visiting the African American Museum, it is filled with so much history and their gift shop is the bomb.com! Hawaii was breathtaking, I savored every bit of my stay. I recommend everyone to go visit. And Texas is my second home because my siblings reside there. Every time I visit I give and receive so much love. This was a highlight for me because I have not visited Texas since college and I missed my family so much, it was great to see them.


 

This was the first Summer of my life that I have moved so much in in such little time, collecting the beautiful memories. This is a Summer to remember.

June is National Iced Tea Month

iced tea

Hey lovely people,

June is national iced tea month! Being that iced tea is a refreshing drink and that Summer begins in June, makes it all intentional. In my home we drink lots of water and iced tea during the summer time. Iced tea is the closest option to juice that I have in my home, so my sisters complain when they come over lol. There is no particular reason, I just prefer to keep sweets out of sight and out of mind!

In celebration to this special month, I ventured out in my own kitchen by experimenting on new iced tea recipes. Out of all the batches that I made, I truly enjoyed Peach and Passion fruit iced tea with a hint of strawberry and lemon.

Here is how you make it:

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of boiling water
  • 4 tea bags
  • 3 Strawberries
  • 1/2 Lemon

Directions:

  • Boil 2 cups of hot water over the stove or in a kettle.
  • Pour boiling water in a heat proof pitcher and add the 4 tea bags. (Steep for 5 mins)
  • Once the water has cooled down; toss the tea bags, add the strawberries and squeeze the lemon inside.
  • Put the pitcher inside the fridge for about 1 hour.
  • Add honey or sugar to your linking and enjoy!

And there you have it, Peach and Passion fruit iced tea with a hint of strawberry and lemon. Cheers!

What is your favorite Iced tea flavor?

 

Love,

Deyla
