Juneteenth 2020: Radical Honesty.

My Juneteenth celebration yesterday. Beauty, bellies, booties, & black women. My liberation came in the form of radical honesty. I sat in that pool yesterday and shed real tears and let it wash over me. Often times as women and/or mothers, we try to keep it all together. We’ve been conditioned to. The concept of…

It’s Easter, and We Out Here.

“Out here” meaning “in the house” of course, lol. Sometimes Easter goes by and I don’t really trip off it. It feels more like a general holiday. It embodies a certain time of the year where everything is coming alive and it’s warming up, so that’s cool. You get to dress up and look cute…

Around Atlanta: IWI Fresh Spa

  People! What’s good? Earlier this month, I got a facial and massage at IWI Fresh. I have had a few different spa experiences in Atlanta, but this is the first time that I had been to a natural spa to this degree. They advertise themselves as farm to skin, meaning that they grow the…

Travel: Chillin’ in Chattanooga.

My Spring Break was earlier this month before social distancing was our reality. I wanted to do something special with my babies so we took a road trip to Chatanooga, Tennessee. And I did it solo dolo. That’s right folks. Just me and the two toddlers, and the trip went really well. I was proud…

Shawty Meditates.

This what I feel like sometimes during meditation. Like, where the fuck am I? And also, yes.  I’ve been holding down a consistent meditation practice lately and I just think it’s so necessary and cool. For me, meditation is a form of self-love. When I’m done, my body feels more relaxed and my mind is…

Around Atlanta: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Fox

Ronald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was playing at the Fox Theatre. So the fam and I (minus little Josephine) went to see it. Yep, we took Langston on a mommy/daddy date, which never happens, and I’m happy we did. Even before we went, I was excited for Langston to be introduced to the…

Future Doctor in Forsyth Park

Yesterday I found out that I was accepted into Mercer’s Doctor of Psychology program! I had been wait listed all summer and a spot just opened up, less than 2 weeks before classes start, and I was first on the list.🙌🏽 I literally jumped up and down when I got the news. And to think,…

Travel: Tybee Island

I feel rejuvenated. Like something has changed on a cellular level. Like healing has occurred. I talked about my spiritual journey recently on my Facebook page and I was super surprised by the feedback that I got. It helped me to realize that there is the opportunity to create community and connection by being more…

Travel: Sweet Times in Savannah.

I visited Savannah, Georgia for the first time last weekend and fell in love. The big Oak trees with Spanish Moss draping the branches are so beautiful. Savannah has the feel of an old soul. Such a charming place. The great thing about living in the South is a quick road trip can get you…
