Passport Reissue Documents

Passport Reissue What is passport reissue? The Passport office usually has two main issuing functions – they either issue out new passports or reissue an old passport. For instance, If a citizen of any country has ever been issued a passport before, (No matter how long ago it was or whether the passport was used or not) to either replace the passport or get new booklet, he or she can only re-apply under the “reissue” category. All passports expire. These passports remain valid until the date of expiry after which they become inadmissible for travel purposes or as legal means of identification. Why would I need to a reissue of my old passport? Apart from the passport being expired, there are several other reasons why an individual may want his/her passport reissued, they include: Change in personal information: Changes to personal information displayed on passport like: ·Name: maybe because of marriage, or wrong spelling, or printing errors. ·Date of birth: Mainly due to mistakes, mismatch or mi…

American Dream Builders Giveaway!

Have any of you been watching the new NBC show American Dream Builders hosted by Nate Berkus? If you haven't checked it out yet, it's a must see! As some of you know I run a home staging and e-design business so I love all things 'home', 'DIY' and 'decorating'. :) I'm super excited today to have partnered with the show and Lowe's to give away a $50 gift card to one of my lucky readers here! 

I love the concept of this show because The American Dream Home is something everyone fantasizes about. Whether it’s a new closet, a larger family room, or simply a place to put all your stuff, there’s always something we want to change about where we live! I know I do! I have a list of things I'd love to update in our home which was built in 1959 complete with the original retro yellow fixtures and tile work in the bath room.

What if you could make your home into your Dream Home? AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS – a new show on NBC airing on Sunday at 8/7c – and L…

Lily's First 6 Months!

{6 Months}
Hi Everyone! Sorry for my gap in posts recently. I mentioned on Facebook last week that I would share an update with photos of Lily over the past few months since I originally shared her 1 week old photo with you after she was born when I announced her arrival here. Time certainly flies when you're having fun! And fun we have been having. It's hard to believe she's already 6 1/2 months old. It's true what every parent tells you, the time goes fast so it's important to take in and cherish every possible moment. I feel as though there have been so many amazing moments that it's hard to pin-point my favorites and yet there is so much of the same day-to-day routine too that days turn into weeks and then months, it's kind of been a wonderful blur. I began wanting to document her first year by doing a weekly photo project for the first 52 weeks but that didn't work out. After week 11 I started to run out of pretty backgrounds for the pics and making…

Sunday's Thought...How a Classy Woman Conducts Herself

For all of us women of faith who strive to be our best self, it's important to remember that above all, we must be a light in this world by conducting ourselves in a Godly manner. It's in the weak moments when we're challenged by others and life's circumstances or feel tempted to go one way vs. another that people will be watching from the sidelines to see how we choose to respond. 

While we will never do it all perfectly and will make mistakes along the way, we must take a deep breath and remember the amazing God we serve. We must ask for His strength & guidance when making all decisions and also in how we reply and correspond with others. A prayer that I often pray is "Lord, order my steps and order my stops." I want to make sure that He is in the center of what I do and say, how I act/react, how I love others and make all of my decisions. Sometimes I become consumed with all that needs to be done and forget to include Him, especially with smaller, lesse…

The Importance of Self-Discipline

From time-to-time a really great quote will inspire me to write a post about a particular topic, today is one of those days. I posted it up on our Facebook Community Page as well as instagram because I feel it's a good reminder.
Sometimes in our daily life, we get so caught up just doing the things that we ought to do such as go to work, clean our house, take care of the kids, prepare meals, run errands, pay bills, etc., that we don't always put in the kind of time into our true goals and dreams that we wish we did. Other times the reason why we don't tackle them is because of fear and lack of self-discipline.

This is such a great quote that I've never thought about in this exact way. Not that we go out seeking pain in life but ultimately we must decide to follow one path or the other. Nothing comes easy, we must either CHOOSE to work hard towards achieving our biggest dreams OR forever live with the ache of regret at not taking a chance or attempting to achieve our goal…

Sunday's Thought....Be Discerning!

Sunday's Thought....In order to survive and thrive we must be people of sound judgement and also discernment. Whom we choose to associate with is very important whether they be a life partner, a friend, a neighbor, etc. We can interact with all people, help them, minister to them, be a blessing to them. However, in terms of close relationships and those we regularly invite into our inner circle, we must ask ourselves if they align with our life values, attitude and faith just as much as they align with our personal interests as our environment has an influence on us. 
It is our responsibility to be discerning. We are reminded..."But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil." ~1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
I shared today's post on our Facebook Community Page as well as Instagram. If you're not following along there, I'd love to see you there! :)
Thanks for Reading and have a Blessed Sunday!

Long Distance Love & Parenting Solo

There are so many things swirling around my head at the moment and there are as many titles I could have given this post. I'm really not sure where to begin. I've wanted to sit down and write a post for a few days now. Partially for you-my readers, as I promised I would once I was ready and partly for myself to just see my current reality typed out before me.

If you follow along via Facebook, you saw me post about some big changes our family is going through at the moment. Thank you all for your prayers and kind words (without even knowing the details of what's taking place over here). My friends and family have been truly supportive and I'm so grateful to have so many people who care in my life.

The long and short of it is my husband has moved over 7,500 miles away and I've essentially become a single parent literally overnight as of last Saturday at 4 a.m., as Lily and I dropped him off at the airport, tears flooding my eyes with a lump in my throat. Listening to t…
