This year has been one for the books. An upset election, racial tension rising, and for me personally, my father lost his battle with Dementia. As I sit here and reflect on 2016, I can't say that I am sad to see it leave. I am anxiously awaiting to see what 2017 has to offer.
I pray for you, our country, and President Obama and his family as he leaves office. He did the best he could with the challenges of having a Republican Senate, and House. Although I am sad to see him leave, I am grateful to know that he can get some much-needed rest, and can take Mrs. Obama on a and I quote "Much needed and long overdue vacation."
I know a lot of you are preparing for Spring Semester, Rush, in hopes of getting picked to join the organization of your choice. I wish you all the best with that. As I have stated on my previous blogs, just be yourself, and I am sure you will be fine.
On another note, one of my favorite Delta Vendors, TIG:MIR is closing its doors. I am SO sad. Ironically I just placed a HUGE order to the vendor 2 weeks ago. Most of her stuff that is generally $50-$60 a piece is now $5-$20 each. I went back and stacked up on a LOT of items. I think I bought ALL of her remaining pieces in like EVERY.SINGLE.COLOR! When she made the announcement on New Years Eve, I was crushed. After getting out of my feelings (LOL) I started to buy, buy, buy! And to get stuff that was originally 60 bucks and they are now FIVE BUCKS? Girl BYE! As I stated I snatched up every color, in TWO DIFFERENT SIZES (in case I lose weight, LOL). I ordered $700 worth of items for.....Drumroll please.......$120! WINNER!!!!! Here is a preview of some of the items I purchased. I can't wait to rock 'em this summer.

Bonjour Mon Ami!
I am excited to announce that after a SEVEN year hiatus, my chapter is back on the yard. 26 young ladies crossed the sands into Delta-Land at my alma mater. I was sad that I wasn't able to see them, HOWEVER I was ecstatic that my husband's ship (line brother) was able to attend and live streamed it for me to see. A lot sorors who were initiated in my home chapter all came down for their initiation and their NIP (New Initiate Presentation). It was a beautiful sight to see. Seeing them on center stage took me back to when I crossed. I was also able to see my prophytes, my neos, and my line sisters as well. I cannot wait to return back to my home chapter to meet the neos in person.
One of my prophyte's daughter just became a delta s well. She just chartered a BRAND new chapter. I am so excited for them. I am sure it took a lot hard work, and dedication.
So, if you are in a position where there is not a chapter on your yard due to either suspension, lack of interests for many years, or there was never a chapter on the yard, don't give up! With persistence, a lot of hard work and dedication, you can make it happen!
