Escape to see the Sun!

Leave a comment

This year has been a year of stranger things. Traveling overseas once again to the Dominican Republic, traveling to Puerto Rico, self publishing my second book, (The Love Experience) a book release party, book signings, raising teenagers, teen drivers ed completion, working full time, trying to pursue other job opportunities to supplement income, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Maria, visiting our State Capitol in Austin, taking on extra projects at work, celebrating 20 years of working for the church, and also celebrating the MLB Houston Astros World Series Championship.

I am so grateful for these opportunities and also grateful for the loving people in my circle. Most grateful to the Lord for allowing me to experience it all. As I look back to gently reflect on my year, it was a blessed year.

If you are working hard and you feel as if you never get a break, sometimes you need to escape just to experience the best sunlight. Yes, you wake up everyday to your normal routine, but take the time to getaway, even if it’s just for one day. You need to take that time to just shine!

L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Only a short two hour drive from Houston, TX. This casino has restaurants, boutiques for shopping, a spa, a lazy river and cabanas for lounging by the pool. The Golden Nugget is also right next door. This was my first time ever visiting here. I was impressed.

Jack Daniels bar has some of the best garlic Parmesan wings. I should’ve brought hone a box before I left. Notice the US flag hanging above, it was meticulously made with lots of chains. Very unique work of art. Kuddos to the artist!

The pool area had plenty of loungers, cabanas, and two jacuzzis. Scenic and serene. This would be a great place to throw a party. Reflecting back on my year. I am blessed. God is Glorious! All the Time!
