The Blueprint

Man o man have I missed you guys. As you can see from the gap in blogs, life has been pretty busy. I recently made myself a promise that I'd get back to doing the things that truly make me happy amid my busy lifestyle and I'm going to do just that.  As you already know, I'm doing the absolute most. Staying busy keeps me focused and I honestly have less time to think about life. I haven't decided if that's a good or bad thing though. Working, running a business, motherhood, school, volunteering, and recently being inducted into a sorority has kept me on the go recently, it's an amazing journey, and I'm super grateful for it all.  Now sit down sis, let's have some tea boo. Girl, I'm finally 30! I say that with a magnitude of emotions because I felt every emotion known to man leading up to the big 3oh! Excitement, sadness, anxiousness, fear, apprehension, and so much more. I even felt guilty for being emotional about the situation. So many people I kno

Imperfect Affection

     Physical touch is a powerful thing. It nurtures us when we need it the most, and makes us feel safe and secure. A simple touch fuels bonds that demonstrate love, care, and a sense of being wanted without the presence of words. From birth, it's a necessity we all yearn for and its power can move mountains and break barriers we never knew existed.  In relationships I always considered myself to be an affectionate person. Outside of my bat shit crazy moments, I made sure my significant other knew how much they were appreciated. Good morning text, mid-day phone calls, and I never had any issues with intimacy. Then one day I met a guy that made me second guess everything I thought I knew about showing affection. He wanted to hold my hand no matter where we were, cuddle in our sleep, grab my waist at the most unexpected times, give me forehead kisses and caress my shoulders in the middle of watching a movie, and he would even throw his legs across me in the bed as he fell asleep. To

Cheers

 What a year this has been. As I sit back and reflect over the last 12 months, I’m consumed with a great deal of gratitude. I’m so grateful and extremely blessed to have made it this far. So many people perished along the way, faced hardships they never saw coming and clung to the slightest glimmer of hope to get them from one day to the next. Phrases such as “unprecedented times, black lives matter, essential workers, virtual schooling, zoom meetings, social distancing, and contactless delivery became our new normal. We were forced to limit our social interactions with friends and loved ones to remain in good health, all while marriages and relationships were tarnished in the midst of it all. Love became a thing of the past and unfiltered emotions were the headliner of the show. Mental demons that were suppressed over the years reappeared with a breakout performance the minute the entire world went silent. I saw people I believed could handle anything burst at the seams and watched as

Selfish

 So much has changed for me since I first started this blog. As you can tell, time got away from me because I didn't realize how much time had gone by since I sat down for some writing therapy. Writing has always been near and dear to me so it holds a special place in my heart. It's also saved me in ways you never could've imagined. So on a day like today when I'm questioning so much in my life, the best thing for me to do is write.  So far, 2020 has been full of surprises, blessings, and questions. The last 8 months have truly been a roller coaster and I'll be glad when things mellow out. I find myself questioning people, situations, feelings, and everything I once thought was concrete. It's almost like this pandemic has brought so much to surface for me about things in my life. Talk about a blessing in disguise.  The biggest lesson I've learned is that people will never treat you the way you treat them. People are all about themselves and being kind-hearte

Tag You're It!

Out of all the titles I hold, being a parent is the one I'am most proud of. Being a mother to Bentley has matured me, given me a new outlook on life, and it gives me the opportunity to grow in ways I never thought were possible. Being a mom has challenged me as well. Motherhood in general has  uncovered so many things about myself I never knew were there. It's like I get to see myself in a new light. Everyday presents new victories, challenges and learning opportunities to be a better mother and I'm taking it one day at a time. One of the biggest things I've learned about myself is that my patience is very thin. We all have certain things that grind our gears and annoy the crap out of us at times and those annoyances reveal themselves in motherhood as well. Becoming a mother doesn't mean you automatically turn into this loving robot with the patience of Job (read your bible). Well, it isn't that way for me anyway. If anything it causes me to tap into my in

It's Okay

          HONEY BEES!!!! I can't believe it's been so long since I've decided to sit down with you. Time doesn't stand still for anyone. First off, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 😃 I hope everyone got through the holiday season with at least $10 still in their pockets like I did. Barely honey.....barely. Well.... Where do I begin? My lip gloss line Monreaux Cosmetics and school have been keeping me super busy. As much as I've enjoyed launching a cosmetic line, school is my top priority. Maintaining my 4.0 isn't easy with the many titles I have.  I'm really grateful for the business support I've gotten and I hope business continues to be steady. As always, I'm flourishing in every aspect of my life except for the love department. It's literally like finding a needle in a haystack. Maybe it's me. I want to believe in people so bad. I want to believe in my happily ever after. I want to believe that maybe one day

New

Hey HoneyBee! I hope all is well. As always, I miss your face dearly and can't wait to update you on the life of Breezy Monreaux. You already know our time is special and you're about to get your life within five minutes of reading this blog. Have a seat sis and take a sip while you get this TEA! You already know, attempting to date in 2019 has been a complete disaster for me. Like I'm about ready to slap on a chastity belt and become a nun because there's nothing out here honey. I'm so headstrong in my way of thinking and the values I want in a potential mate so settling isn't an option. Bentley and I deserve the absolute best. ASKING FOR A FRIEND 😂: What happens when everything you thought you wanted shows up out of the blue? Seriously this person could possibly be a damn unicorn cause their qualities are rare boo. Meeting new people is always fun in the beginning. I told MY FRIEND that it's important for her to remember people usually send a repre

A Gift For You

Hi HoneyBees! I'm back! I've missed you all so much. The last month has been super busy for me. Between school, work, motherhood and STARTING A NEW COSMETIC LINE I've been pretty busy. You heard me right, I'VE LAUNCHED A COSMETIC LINE. My life for the past month has consisted of legal paperwork, mixing colors, selecting packaging for products etc. It's been super fun and I can't wait to share the line with you. For now, I'm operating on a smaller scale but in the next 2-3 years, I have huge plans for MONREAUX COSMETICS LLC! My line is launching very soon but for now, I have a gift for you... To express my gratitude for the love and support you've shown my blog over the past year, I'd love my readers to try my line of lip products at a discounted price before they're introduced to everyone else! Readers will get the chance to try my handmade lipgloss, and or sugar scrubs by following the steps below: 1. Subscribe to "Blogging with Bre

This Isn't Your Burden To Carry

Anyone who knows me knows my son is the most important thing to me. My life literally revolves around him and nothing or anyone will ever come in between that. I take so much pride in being his mother and we’re the perfect team. My son is my life, period! I’m so grateful God chose me to be his mother. It’s no secret- I’m definitely all about women empowerment. I’m always rooting for the women that people have counted out such as single moms. As a single mother myself, I don’t fit inside the box that society likes to put me in. I’m educated, I have a career, I’m smart, a great mother and an entrepreneur.   It’s very common for me to engage in conversation around motherhood, being single, getting started in your career or starting a new small business. I almost feel like a spokesperson for mothers everywhere. 😊 I do this though because it’s my mission to be very transparent with   people I encounter. I’m very authentic in my way of thinking and the experiences I share with other peo

It's Our Anniversary

**Singing off key to the lyrics of Tony! Toni! Tone!....Do you know what today is? It's our anniversary, it's our anniversary!" I seriously can’t believe today makes a year since I’ve launched this blog. Sharing my single mother journey with you has been nothing short of amazing. What once started as a thought is now my reality. I’ve exposed myself and inner thoughts with you all and it feels damn good to put everything on paper. Blogging has been very therapeutic for me. It’s provided aid in some of my toughest times and given me the outlet I desperately needed. My HoneyBees are the absolute best and this blog wouldn’t have been as successful without you.   I’ve been super grateful to land in Feedspots Top 100 Best Mom Blog list and I look forward to what’s in store for the future. Blogging With Breezy has given me confidence I lacked before and served as a catalyst for me to pursue other projects and business ventures along the way. What an amazing year! The best i

Little Girl

Dear Little Girl, It's time we have a serious conversation. Special is what you are and strong is what you'll become. Little girl, it's okay to cry and show emotion. The hell you're going through now will build character and strength later in life. You know hurt and pain all too well. Your mind will play tricks on you and make you feel less than, but know deep down you're worthy. You'll hide your true feelings by drowning yourself in work and motherhood because this is a conversation you avoided for years. Little girl, you'll experience abusive relationships with  narcissist that prey on your bruised and battered love wounds. They'll smell it a mile away. You'll hold on to false hope and they'll give you just enough to hang onto. Your men of choice find pleasure in building you up only to watch you fall apart. This is one of the toughest battles you'll endure but you're strong enough without a doubt to break the cycle. The cycle

The First Day

Hi Honey Bees! I hope all is well with you. Sharing my thoughts with you is always a pleasure and so therapeutic for me. I just love you so much boo!! 👄 Morning came so quick for me. It's 6:15 AM and my annoying alarm is ringing throughout the room. Whew Jesus I'm sleepy. I roll over and say my prayers before getting out of bed. I stumble into my sons room and attack him with hugs and kisses. It's his first day of third grade so we're both pretty excited. He spent the entire summer with his grandparents and I have to say, I'm so grateful to have my booski back home. We ate breakfast and discussed where his new classroom was. As excited as I am for him, I find myself getting a little emotional. He's definitely growing up. Being a single mother isn't easy by any means. I remember his first day of kindergarten and how I cried all day after leaving his classroom. I remember his end of year program in first grade and how I cried so much during the ceremony

Catch Up

Honey Bees! It’s been such a long time. My blog will forever be my second baby and I love my faithful readers beyond life. I feel like there’s so much to catch you up on. Let’s start with work.   Work is going very well. I feel more comfortable as the days go by. When I first transitioned into this role, I wasn’t sure if I made the right decision, but as time passes, I’m grateful I did. I enjoy what I do, so it doesn’t feel like work at all.   NEXTTTTTTT……. School. I’m sure I mentioned in a previous post that I decided to go back to school. School is AMAZING. I’ve always been a pretty good student, so a lot of things just come natural to me. The biggest challenge will be keeping up with classes once my soon gets back in school and football season starts. I’m sure I’ll be spending a good amount of time on the field with him, so I’ll have to get creative with carving out study time.   NEXTTTTTTT……. Love life. What love life honey? It’s nonexistent. That thing is extinct like dino

Her Heart

Last night as I sat in bed staring at the ceiling, my mind began to wander. F**k, this is the second night I haven’t been able to sleep because my heart literally hurts, and my mind is racing a thousand miles a minute.    At this point, I’d been laying there for about 45 minutes trying to hold back tears and think of something else other than what was bothering me, but as usual it wasn’t working. I rolled over searching for my phone within the sheets and blanket. It’s 3:08AM and I’m wide awake thinking about how and why I allowed this man to piss me off again. He’s probably sound asleep not giving a crap and calling hogs home this time of morning. In that moment,I began to think about how I feel everything so deeply. Everything from emotions, intentions, vibes judgments and even lies. I’m far from perfect, but when people hurt me, it cuts  deep because I know my intentions are never to do people wrong. I’ve said a few times before that I could never do anyone the way some have done
