Lemon head.

I was having a real yellow moment when I visited Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta a couple weeks ago for a networking event. Hair, skin tone, dress, bag….all of it. So naturally I became curious about the psychology and meaning of the color yellow. This is the quick version of what I found: Yellow: Uplifting,…

Unless God Sent You…

Before I got out of Memphis, I grabbed some tasty Mexican food. It happened to be Cinco de Mayo and the weekend already had a celebratory mood, so margaritas it was. Then we went over to Lorraine Motel to honor the life of MLK Jr. It’s important for me to show my kids the world…

Visiting: Discovery Park of America

Traveled to Tennessee earlier this month with my family for my graduation. I was finally graduating with my master’s degree and I was super happy. Still am. Since we got in a day early I decided the Discovery Park of America, in Union City, TN, would be an amazing outing for the day. I love…

The Graduate: From Martin to Memphis

Shawty just graduated! I’m so happy to say that I just received my Master of Science in Education from the University of Tennessee- Martin. I studied to be a school counselor so that meant lots of classes, residency, practicum, and two school internships. And I’m walking away with a 4.0 and two babies. Couldn’t be…

That New New.

My little sister, Meaghan, came in town to celebrate her Earth Day birthday. We kicked things off at Cascade. I used to skate when I was a kid in East St. Louis so I thought that would be a cool experience.  Shout out to Skate King. Cascade makes me think so much of the movie ATL….

Winter in the Morning, Spring in the Afternoon.

Yea it’s technically Spring, but Winter is still out here trying to be seen at least a few hours out of the day. So the wardrobe is in transition. Atlanta weather right now is a little bit all over the place. But I suppose that’s always been the nature of early Spring. In the last…

Retro Vibes in Norfolk, Va.

Ya girl was on the East Coast this past week for Spring Break. My last Spring Break as a counseling student, might I add. Graduation creeping up too quick and I cannot wait. So the fam and I traveled to Virginia Beach, Charlottesville, and Washington DC. I lived in Cville for 5 years so it…

Kid’s Birthday Parties

I swear my kids have more of a social life than I do at times. Kid’s birthday parties stay in rotation around here. And at this age, indoor play places reign supreme. It’s a shoeless frenzy. My weekend activities usually include something for the grown ups and something for the babies. I’ll facilitate the fun.

Print Master/ Shorties at an Art Show.

Hey loves! How is life? I feel like I’ve been going through it but I’m still moving in the right direction so all is good. Focusing on gratitude, right? When things get really chaotic or stressful, it’s important to check in with yourself and put that self-care/self-love on 100. Taking time to be mindful, breathing…

Sheer-o

Hey! I went to the club Superbowl weekend. I haven’t been to a club club in a minute. It was fun, but I’m not rushing to do all that again. For me, the music has to be 100, so when the DJ got selective amnesia about new school hip hop/trap music, I had to make…
