Alpha Kappa Alpha

I've honestly typed and deleted so many versions of this post because I want to make sure that I get this one right ya'll. Over the weekend I celebrated my 4th AKAversary with my sorority sisters and we seriously had so much fun! I honestly think back and can't even believe that its been 4 years with these ladies!

Time has dealt us a wedding, death, babies, big girl jobs, engagements and so many more monumental life moments. But when I sat down to write this, all the little moments flooded into my head. Seriously, don't get us started on memories because we will be laughing and crying for hours about the things we've been through together.

I remember back in the day having so many different emotions wondering what this sisterhood would be like. Because I don't have any biological sisters, I have heavy expectations attached to the word "sister". I just wanted it to be real. Period. I know a lot of sororities only promote that sisterhood during undergrad and then after you get your degree everyones like "peace out". So I was always worried that I either wouldn't build those relationships or that if I did they wouldn't last.

But God is so faithful and I can honestly say the BEST decision I made my entire collegiate career, aside from traveling abroad, was deciding to be apart of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. These women are not only DROP DEAD FREAKING GORGEOUS, but they are so smart, real, so much fun to be around, literally pick a positive adjective and they are it haha. I can say for a fact that they have helped shape the woman I'm becoming and the crazy thing is we're just getting started.

No, things aren't always shiny and happy. Sisters fight. But if I ever needed anyone of these girls, day or night, I know that I could call and count on them. And that's what it all comes down to for me. I know that they will always be there.

That's why times like this weekend are so important, now more than ever. With life getting real for all of us, its nice to get as many of us as we can in one place to celebrate how old we are haha.

Anyways I hope ya'll have a great Monday! We'll be back to regular fashion/beauty content later this week, I just wanted to get personal with ya'll today.
