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…

OOTD: You Can Hear Me Coming.

Hey yal. This was me at the house a couple of weeks ago. I had these swishy pants that I found at a thrfit store a while back and this color blocking organza top. They’re among many statement pieces that I buy and then figure out what to do with later. This extended time at…

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: 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…

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…
