😰 I was so scared because I didn’t know how to tell her……..I didn’t know how she would respond…………. I love my wife…...she is my best friend 🥰...my everything. That wasn’t the question tho. 😍 But running a business together *sigh* maybe it’s just not for us. (I thought……) 😢 We are just so different…..the arguments were getting worst….we couldn’t see eye to eye….we had different ideas and plans…… and I felt that it was impossible for us to run a business together & still be happy in our marriage. 😣 She felt the same way. 🤭 She felt as if in our business she wasn’t doing things right.….and you know what? To my shame….I was making her feel that way. By what I said....and how I responded 🥺 She felt as if she was never doing enough…..because simply I just didn’t know how to “turn work off” & not talk about it & what needed to be done. 😦 I felt like I wasn’t getting the help I needed…..and she didn’t “care as much”.....Why don’t you stress about it like I do? (I would ask…...) 😨 She felt overwhelmed…….being a wife, a mom, a sister, taking care of our home….on top of that trying to help run our business. It was too much…...🤷🏽♀️ So we asked each other in August 2019, should we keep doing this together..…? Or just both “do our own things?” 🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♀️ We prayed. We cried.....we got help.....and somehow God intervened & changed both of our hearts & perspectives....🤯 🗣“Shina, I need you & I love you……..” She responded “Westley, I admire you…...& I respect you” 🗣”Shina, you make literally everything better……I can’t do this without you” she replied “Westley, I want to do this WITH you, I’m your helper and your partner” #TeamMadison #4Life 👫🏽 Her: Wait...🙋🏽♀️on one ☝🏽condition, I need a raise 😜 #BossBabe
It’s Valentine’s Day but you still have a Wedding to Plan! 😍 Get a glass of wine....Pick up some flowers 🌺.....get some good food 🥘 and let’s pick out your Wedding Music! 🎶
♥️As you are choosing these songs, dance a little together, sing a little, and laugh together! Have fun with it.
Here is what you can do: Come up with 14 songs (yep just 14…..for Valentine’s Day) and put them in a LIST (Use Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube or Pen & Paper). Whatever is easiest for you...
⏩Start with songs that make you look at each other and smile...or laugh!
😍They can be love songs...Funny....funky/goofy songs...no words/ a lot of words...Upbeat or Slow, or even New School, Throwbacks! Doesn't matter! As long as you like it. 😉 For theses songs don't worry (just yet) about:
❌ What your family will think of it ❌ If your friends will dance to it ❌If it's too slow or too fast All you need to think about is:
✅ Do you like it ✅ Does your fiance like it ✅ Does it make you think of each other
The thing is your Wedding will be over in 4 hours! We will have plenty of time to get in a ton of different songs…some slower songs may be good during ceremony/cocktail hour….some funky songs may be good during dinner time and the throwback or classics songs may make for an amazing dance party! 🎉
By the end of this you will have at least a total of 14 Songs that you can supply to your DJ to bring it all together for your Wedding Day.....in the meantime, enjoy your Valentine's Day as an engaged couple and dance the night away!

#Confession 😢 Yesterday, I cried. Like cried-cried.....I don't cry a lot but sometimes those little things get to me and I do.............. 💧 Here is the thing: I'm emotional.....I'm more "sensitive" than the average ________ (fill in the blank). I use to hate it soooo much. I hated myself because things always would get to me.....I always felt things ughhhh 🤦🏾♂️😨.....I was always bothered in someway or another. 🎭 I use to wish I could hide my emotions and be a "man's man" like "everybody else" 😂 and all the rappers and actors on TV but I couldn't. I can't.....this is who I am. 😔 🥊 Growing up in Baltimore, didn’t make it any easier to be honest....I was a black belt....I knew how to fight (I got in my fair share of fist fights because of) .....but socially I wasn't tough. I was "ᴡᴇᴀᴋ"..... Words bothered me. Facial expressions.... As hard as I tried......I was the one that "couldn't take a joke" so my friends called me ______ & _______ and even worse _______. I remember coming home thinking I was those things. 😖😤 🎁 It really wasn't until Shina and I started dating that it started to make sense.🙃🗨That not only was this how God created me but this is what she needed. Shina needs my "emotional vulnerabililty....she needs my sentimentality...sometimes more than other things 🤪😆. Of course she is exactly what I needed to learn how to channel my emotions in a healthy manner to give and be the best for everyone around especially her and Jaxson. 😊😍 🎯 She often tells me "I love when you share your heart". What I use to believe was my absolute biggest weakness became my biggest asset.....my biggest strength.😁🤩 🌱 The interesting thing is though now at the age of 30.....I am more secure.....I CAN take a joke & control my feelings because of her I have a lot of emotional boundaries that help me to reason and think through my responses.....but who I am at my core? I am emotional.....I am sensitive. That is who I am. And you know what? God loves me...my wife loves and my son loves me. No longer am I ashamed but grateful that God has granted me this gift to be able to show the type of love my wife and my son need the most. That's why I cried yesterday.....😭😊#HappyTears #ChristianBlogger 📷: Ashley Kapic Photography ... See MoreSee Less
Mark & Paula’s Wedding on Saturday December 14th was a dream come true. ✨They were originally married in December 1989 in New York City but never had the chance to have a Wedding🖤. 30 Years later they decided they wanted to celebrate their marriage along with their 5 children by throwing the Wedding of their dreams with all of their closest friends and family. It all came together so perfectly. Paula & Mark 👰🏽 were literally brought to tears when they walked in the room. Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that brought their vision to life.

Married to her best friend. When I first met Britney and Trey I instantly saw their friendship, they were 100% best friends! As we began planning their wedding together (musically) everything was always so smooth, fun and lively. They truly wanted nothing but to be together and to celebrate their friendship and love on the most important day of their lives. When I think about the vibe of Trey and Britney's wedding...
