We Did It!

Wow. We did it! We showed up and we did it! As I sit in front of my television watching CNN coverage, I sit here with a deep sigh of relief. I am happy and I have a renewed sense of hope. I just want to remind you all that though we have scored a…

UNTITLED

Today was… a lot. Where do I start? I guess the beginning would be a good place. I woke up with an aching back. I also woke up pretty anxious. I was thinking about how I needed to finish getting the kids’ passports. Random as is seems, the thought first entered my mind yesterday after…

2020 Covid Escape (Girls only edition)

What a year 2020 has been. No need for any recaps. We are all aware of what it’s been like over the last 9 months, I haven’t written in a while. At least I haven’t managed to finish a post and actually press “publish.” It’s like having everything to say, wanting, and needing to say…

The Phone Call

When I first started blogging, I’d told myself that I would write so many posts per week. I think it was like 5 per week.  I soon realized that, for me, this was an unrealistic expectation. Adhering to a schedule would mean that with or without inspiration, I’d post. So basically, I’d just be rambling…

Collective Efforts

A few hours ago, I geared up (face mask & gloves) and I left my house headed to grab a few items that I needed from the store. COVID-19 has not only cleared the road, but the shelves inside all of our favorite grocery stores, pharmacies and convenience stores are completely scarce. It feels like…

37: A Redefined Birthday

  I made it and I’m so very thankful. I feel blessed. COVID-19 has been a great detriment across the world. So many lives have been taken and so many more have fallen sick. Much of the country has been locked down in one way or another and we’ve been forced to find solace in…

Keep That Same Energy

On February 1st, just like clockwork, timelines exploded in black history facts, tributes and pride. Two days into March and those very same feeds are now rather lackluster. That’s right. Back to popular memes, selfies, subliminal quotes and Tik Tok videos. Let’s be clear. I see nothing wrong with any of the above mentioned post…

2020

No need to write a book. All of the things that I’ve been talking about, I’m going to do them. I’ve HAPPILY done a lot of things for other people for a long time now. The same dedication that I’ve put into helping others to achieve their goals, grow and even prosper I will now…

2019… LISTEN!

First off, can we talk about how fast this year went by? It feels like I was JUST sitting in this same spot typing Dear 2018 & Hello 2019! About a couple of weeks ago, a guy inside of Publix told me that as you get older, time seemingly moves much faster. I didn’t put much…
