Hail and Farewell

This post has been pretty difficult to start. This will be a fairly short one. I’ve typed, erased, typed, erased again and this is what made the cut. I guess I will start with the truth. 2020 was tough. Like really tough. I planned to do a lot last year that I wasn’t able to…

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.

Curls On Curls On Curls

I typically go about 3 months or so in between loc re-twists. During my first year, I went to my loctician every 4 weeks, but that was mainly because I was new to locs and was really afraid of messing them up in any way. A lot of people cringe when I tell them how…

Answers

One of the toughest things I’ve struggled with in life is finding resolve in the questions that aren’t accompanied by an answer. You know, the how’s and why’s in life. For me, sometimes the answers are still only half the battle. If the answers don’t make sense in my mind, then they are just as…

Long Journey Short

Long journey short… So about a year ago I entered into a very uncomfortable space. I had woken up one too many mornings and I had fallen asleep one too many nights feeling personally unfulfilled. For almost 12 years I’d put myself at the very bottom of my priority list. Between motherhood, marriage & life,…
