Shakemia Meekyleia is my name (but I’ve found Mia to be easier for most), I’m the owner of lacewithlove.org that was established five years ago but as some of you may know that have been following over the years life has pretty much taken a lot of twists and detours that have kept me from being consistent with my blog. But enough about that here’s a little insight on me, I’m a very feisty Aries born in 1988 in Fayetteville, NC. I spent most of my life exploring overseas with my parents seeing as though I’m an army brat. I try to share on this little space of mine everything that I may have gone through in my twenty something years of living on earth because I find that a lot of people can relate but there’s a lot of people who are afraid to live in their truth (I am not, even though there was a point in my life where the opinion of others consumed me). 

 In 2012 I was introduced to the love of my life Chasity Nicole, which is a nice little soft spot that I share with you all (mommy in me, vacations posts, etc). She inspires a lot of posts on the blog and I love that I’m able to share with people the life of a single mother and hopefully she will look back and be proud on the things I’ve accomplished by myself because she’s the reason for it all.


When did you first begin blogging? 
I began blogging back when myspace was very popular, well to me that is so around 2006-08. I kept a very active and well read blog within my myspace page but as soon as myspace became less popular so did my blog and that's when I came across wordpress and blogger. In the beginning, I was really nervous about having a blog on such popular formats because you will ALWAYS have those certain people to down play everything you discuss or dictate things you believe in or have done in your life.

I've changed so many domains in the time frame of 2009 to Present because back then I was trying to find myself and what works for me when it comes to branding and attaching my name to something worthwhile, which I believe lacewithlove.org is it for me.

Do you feel as though blogging shines the light on things you wouldn't want people to know? 
If I didn't want people judging me or getting an insight into my life I would NOT blog, I feel as though every blogger has to get personal and deep at least once no matter what their blog's focus is.

Why do you blog? 
Blogging is my own personal therapy. I've always loved blogging, writing, taking pictures, and just enjoying life. I may not be the best writer but when I do write I feel as though people can relate to everything I've said or been through. It's a form of self expression and even though people may judge me or anyone else who blogs, at the end of the day this is what we love to do no matter if someone is reading or not. 

What Camera do you use? or have used? 

What Program do you use to design or edit your pictures?  
I use Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop Elements. For editing my pictures I use Adobe Photoshop CS5 using actions, which you can find on Deviant Art Photoshop Actions :). You will become addicted, I promise.

I'm more than happy to answer any questions you guys have about my blog or how I do something that's displayed here just contact me at meekyleia@gmail.com .
