Hello August…I’m so glad you’re here!

There was this morning meeting song that Laila’s PreK class sang every morning welcoming each child by calling their name and ending with “I’m so glad you’re here!” Y’all know August is one of our favorite months over here at and I’m screaming 🗣🗣🗣 “Hello August, I’m so glad you’re here!!”

Mostly because both of our birthdays are in August, but also because when you have small children this is your new year.  August is the kickoff for everything. School begins, football season is approaching, summer is finishing up and fall is so close you can almost smell the pumpkin spice in the air. Cues Starbucks fall drink menu…

This year August kicks off on a Monday! So it’s a new week and a new month, and for us it will be soon be a new year of life. Mon and I have both gone through some pretty big transitions lately. My family moved from South Florida to Georgia and Mon’s family is literally in transit from Japan -> to Mississippi-> and are now in route to Germany. (I know we will hear all about this once she gets settled!) So much has been going on and while we hoped we would have an opportunity to see one another, we both have been going nonstop for well over two months now.

I can say now that school is about to start and we are settling into this new space, I feel good. Tired, but good. My hubby and I made a choice to walk in faith and while it hasn’t been easy it has soooo been worth it. The more I think about how everything happened so quickly, I am reminded how blessed we truly are. It’s funny though because when people hear you say you’re blessed they immediately associate it with some sort of financial success, but you and I both know we didn’t have the winning mega millions ticket.

So when I talk about being blessed I mean it in the most genuine and organic way. I am blessed in my mind, my body, and my spirit.  I have come to a place where my peace is my most valuable asset and I am willing to do whatever is necessary to protect. I’ve talked about that for years but now I’m finally able to stand on it.

This year I am declaring victory in all areas of my life…mental and physical health, financial freedom and wealth, and family/friend relationships. My goal is to put myself in a position to win that continues to lift others, while also living my best and most free/peaceful life. I took off the month of July to truly get my bearings and now I feel rejuvenated. I am so excited to continue this journey with all of you.

Be sure to get social…subscribe to the blog, follow me on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Tiktok @iammichellerena and let’s enjoy the journey together.

This month will be filled with energy that builds confidence, empowers originality and creativity, and creates space for authenticity. That’s what I’m on! I’m excited to close out year 38 in style and welcome the last year of my 30’s with class and creativity! Self care is still the priority and I am officially a brand ambassador for the dopest skincare line around Sirobè!!

Beyoncé called it perfectly, the renaissance has come!
