Whewwwwwwwwwwww! Hey guys! Okay, I think I’m finally recouping from the Chicago launch of my first book “When God Said Yes”. What. A. Night. It was everything I dreamed of, and MORE. I want to thank my sponsors for making this day possible: EDEN BodyWorks, Black & Married With Kids, Sweet Blooms Cupcakes, Photos By Chaci, The Stork Bag, and Fashion Fair. Thank you for believing in me, and for saying… YES.

How cute is my gold “Yes” sign? My mommy made it :)

It was indeed a night to remember. I also had fun revealing my secret, which is a 30-Day Devotional entitled “The 30 Day Man Fast”. To purchase both books, click here.

 I even had a chance to sign books, which was SUPER special for me. So many people have been following my writing for 5 years now, and were there to share this special moment with me. #FromBloggerToAuthor

This was my first time ever having a major event, besides my wedding. I didn’t realize how much work it took. There were so many people who worked behind the scenes to make my event flow smooth: My parents (especially my dear mama), My in-loves, My little sister Kiera, The White Family, The Butler Family, The Beasley Family, Aunty Janet, Aunty Cynthia, and soooooooo many more. If I forgot your name, please blame it on my head and not my heart.

And I can’t forget to thank my loving, one-of-a-kind, supportive, amazing husband. Without him, and God obviously, there would be no book. I love you Stephen Delaney!
