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…

July 12th: A Cancer Woman.

Shawty had a birthday this summer 👏🏽 Shout out to all the wonderful Cancer’s out there. Enjoying good food and emoting like nobody’s business 😊. I love us. I used to live by Grant Park but I never made it over to Agave, so I went there for my birthday dinner. Margarita please. Earlier that…

Travel: Father’s Day in Kansas City.

If it’s one thing about me that you can bet on, it’s that I’m always taking (and editing) pictures. The 8,000+ pictures currently on my iPhone are proof of that. So even when I’m not posting anything, my arsenal real strong. I was in Kansas City for Father’s Day this year. We went to Fritz’s,…

House Party: Family Style.

Here’s a flashback to late May when me & Josie had a joint Luau party at the house. Celebrating her first birthday and my graduation from graduate school. ❤️ Josephine wore that cupcake out! I’m telling you. And if you’re wondering about her outfit, I found it on Amazon and it couldn’t have been cuter…

Travel: St. Louis Summer Trip

Peace to you! Man, what’s good people. I took a break from blogging this summer. That Mercury Retrograde just took me clean out. Can anyone relate? My birthday was July 12. I celebrated with a honey body massage & foot rub (fire), then went to this slightly side-eye worthy day party in Atlanta with my…

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….
