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…

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.

Planning the New Year.

Happy New Year friends. I’m getting settled into this energy of 2019 and preparing myself for great things. It’s really all about that preparation. I’m the kind of person that really enjoys having a planner. Making little lists and checking things off….oh baby. So my planner for 2019 is the Simple Elephant. I’ve never used…

You Got This: Advocating for a Sick Child.

If you would have told me that I’d be staying in the hospital this here holiday season because my 6 month old daughter was sick, I’d say you were crazy. But that’s exactly what happened last Monday. A visit to urgent care quickly turned into an ambulance ride to CHOA (Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.) Josephine…

My Mama Said Happy Halloween

Oh the delight of a homemade Halloween costume that actually works. If you do social media, then you most likely have seen this meme of Cardi B being a sassy black child. Thankfully I am a sassy black woman, so I naturally had all components of this outfit in my closet. Facial expression included. I…

Little 5 Points Halloween Parade

There is something so effortlessly cool about black on black with a blue jean jacket. Especially with ripped jeans and a cropped top. Checked out the Halloween Parade at Little 5 Points. It was bigger than I remembered from last year. Lots of cool costumes and tons of people all around. It’s a bit much…

Atlanta Pride Parade 2018

The Atlanta Pride parade was lovely. Weather was just starting to cool off and the mood was so beautiful. Talk about great energy the entire time. As you can see, I had a great time. I want to teach my children that love is love, regardless of who it is with. And that there are…

Macon, Georgia

I have a toddler and a 5 month old. Therefore, life is hectic and a lot of fun. And I’m tired for like 75% of the day. They definitely keep me on my toes but I love every minute of it. I was literally chasing him around the majority of this trip, lol. My aunt…

Georgia State Fair.

Shoutout to continuing to do summer tings right on into Fall. Me and the family went to the Georgia State Fair a couple weeks ago and had such a good time. It was the last Saturday before the fair closed.  I love going to places that the whole family can enjoy. Langston got to see…
