From a tender age, I recall having an awareness that there was something more for me...something deeper and far more fulfilling than just going with the flow.  Although it took years for me to understand how to tap into my full potential, how to uncover the woman God created me to be, how to make the right choices, how to hear God's voice and respect His timing. 
 Life gets surprisingly simple when we are on the path God intends for us.  This requires being intentional and actively choosing who and what you allow in, and a willingness to allow certain people and situations to fall away.  It is when we let this life drag us around, forgetting that we can change circumstances by choices we make, that things get over complicated.  

A few lessons I've learned... My  mind and heart need time for rest and time for prayer.  I need to ensure that my home, my wardrobe...my life is streamlined & organized or I find myself falling into a pattern of acting less mindfully. Most importantly, God is in everything...my blog, my relationships...the significant things and the seemingly little things.  All of my victories are by His Grace.  
When you feel encouraged by what I share on Classy Ever After, my hope is that you will pause for a moment and remember that God is working through me, and with Him...absolutely anything is possible!

Hey Ladies!  Did everyone have a lovely weekend?  
 Nothing out of the ordinary over here except...90% of my attention is focused on mediating between felines.  Jericho (my 9 year old female) is not pleased about her new brother (2 year old male rescue kitty).  He is the sweetest little love bug!!!  So is Jericho but not at the moment.  Gosh, this is stressful!  All I want is for my fur babies to be happy and to get along. Jericho never had an issue with her canine brothers, and this is the first time I've ever had two cats at the same time.  I can not wait until my little diva adjusts, and I can stop worrying.  Any tips you have for helping the kitties out here would be much appreciated.

On the style front... Up here in New England, we are still having strange weather patterns. Spring is taking its sweet time and, aside from a few warm days, I'm still  in sweaters & booties.  As I've mentioned a few times before, I have become quite fond of the uniform concept.  My go-to pieces for the current temps are simple cashmere sweaters or boyfriend button ups & a fab pair of jeans.  

What pieces consistently allow you to  feel your best?
