I'm going to #BlogHer16!!

I am so excited for August 4-7, I am going on a solo trip to Los Angeles to attend BlogHer16! I am a complete conference newbie and I am also a bit nervous. But you need to step out of your comfort zone once in a while. Can't wait to network with bloggers and brands and soak in as much as I can about how to grow with my blog and online presence!  Please say Hi to me if you are going, I will most likely be the one standing there alone because I won't know anyone going!  Tabithahttp://www.lovetabitha.com...more

Sounds deep, filled with political angst, and totally about men doesn't it?  It's not. At least not for me.  I keep it simple...and girly!...more

Life As A Pineapple

Long ago, my friend's friend told her she needed to be, " tough like a pineapple not soft like a peach". The context of the statement was due to some serious boo hooing over a dumb boy. I thought the sentiment was hilarious and have used is as my own ever since. Later I was to discover that a pineapple was the symbol of hospitality.
