And there it is. The close to one of the best birthdays I’ve had. This trip would not have been what it was without the ladies who I shared it with. Thank you girls for ALWAYS being the most down group of WOMEN and always celebrating with me and making an effort to make sure I have the best times with the best people. I know you all had other things going on and you could have been anywhere in this world this past weekend but you chose to spend it with me! I don’t give you girls enough credit where it’s due for being simply amazing. God truly blessed me with the best! I will NEVER forget the laughs, the cries (@ #thefountainsofBellagio for that matter) the fat Tuesdays,’the mollies, the body slams, the “H’oooo BABY’s”, the slutty ratchetness, Danielle’s underwear that is NOT swimwear and just every single memory we made. You all made my Birthday Weekend unforgettable and nothing short of MAGICAL. And I thank and love you all! ✨ #lastagram #vegas #september #2013 #birthday #sorryforthespam #havesomeeggswithit #unforgettable #magic @whoaalexis @andreaa_nicolle @cali_lovingal @maicv
Before today ends, happy birthday to one of the most important and hard-working women I know! Ms. @gabrielllamariee! NEVER a dull moment with the lesbian love of my life! I love you cousin-to-be! #gitoffmahland #gitchurhandsoutmahchitlins #kittyfund #twerkteam #lesbiancest
So I made a gift to all the places my sister’s been and to the people and hearts she’s touched and to the people who didn’t know her but want to know the kind of person she was. This is my video tribute to her memory that serves as proof that she was-and still is-here.
Head to YouTube and search “Kate Was Here Carla” and it’ll be the first video that pops up! Hope you love and enjoy.
How exactly DO you say goodbye to yesterday? How do you let go of someone you’ve grown up right beside and close a door on years of countless memories that will continue to flood and forever be imprinted on your mind and in your heart? 365 days have passed since God called back his angel, my light, my best friend, my sister, my strength, pride, idol, my dream and my heart. And every single day of those 365 days, I’ve asked myself over and over and over again those same questions. I don’t think anyone could prepare to lose someone so close to your heart. To be completely honest, I still don’t understand. There are days I just don’t see the plan, although I know there is one. And even on my good days I always wonder where you are now, who you’re with, is your heart the same and if you’re happy. Most importantly, as time passed and I experienced my first year without you in my life and as I’ve grown as a woman, I mainly wonder if you’re proud of me and if I am anywhere remotely near the type of woman you envisioned and raised me to be? But if there is one thing I know, it’s that your love has and always will be instilled in me. And there’s a place in my heart that will only be yours. The bond we had will be one that no one will ever understand and the occupations we had in eachother’s lives will never be filled by anyone else. There will always be a moment in time that belongs to two sisters with all the love in the world. So, 365 days later, how do you say goodbye? How do you let go? How do you close the door? Easy. You don’t. Your love, our memories and YOUR memory is my only living proof that you were here. That I have a sister. One that I could only dream to even be HALF of. And yes, it may be a year since you were called back, and there will be many more. I could look at it as 365 days since I lost my sister, but the way I see it, it’s 365 days closer to seeing you again. My heart belongs to you, sissy.
#beyinspired @beyonce constantly #inspires me to celebrate being a woman; to embrace all facets of my personality, mind and body, including my insecurities. She teaches me to embrace my #fierce side but to cater to my emotional side as well. She’s inspired me to give, to be HERE, to leave my mark, to do everything I want and be more than I thought I could be. Beyoncé inspires to love now, love always. #beyinspired #beyhive #pepsi #MTV #beyonce #sashafierce #mrscarter #getmebodied #singleladies #grownwoman

Lone Tree Thai w/ @dailymic! Thai Yellow Curry and Tom Kha soup for the soul! I think I’m subconsciously feeling Indian today with my Turban and wanting to eat Curry! Haha I never liked curry until my sister brought it to me at work one day. Same for Tom Kha soup! That woman changed my life! Haha
