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,…

River Walk Street Style

More from Savannah. Grabbed some dinner, then cruised along the river for a nice night time walk. I was sucked into the River Street Sweets candy store. They had everything and more. I recommend you try their turtles or generally any of their homemade chocolate. Fire. ✌🏽❤️ -Leslie

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
