Peace and Love kinda day

Kobe and I took Mo coffee at work and got an impromptu tour of the area he was training in. Kobe loved getting to see his dad in action. On the way back to the hotel we picked up donuts from Peace, Love and Lots of Donuts. The owner Isabelle was a delight to talk to, we spent 20 minutes […]

Birthday Glamping…kinda

Natalie wanted to go Glamping for her 17th birthday. That was a difficult task in the mist of the current pandemic. Instead we found a tiny house in Sarasota, FL to stay in. The girls had a blast. Highlights: morning at the beach, Mo’s shrimp dinner, discovering the best quacamole ever.

Unexpected Goodbyes

Repost from Tori’s Facebook because it’s easier to use her words right now than to express the heartache in my own. This pandemic has caused so much separation and isolation. We can’t go home. So many unsaid goodbyes. My grandfather died on Friday. Our family does everything big, births are big, holidays are big, funerals are big. We couldn’t celebrate […]

We Won’t Forget

Natalie’s choir took part in a memorial ceremony on 9/11. We will not forget. Prayers for our countries continued healing. For the families who lost loved ones. For the safety and protection of our country. For the men and women serving to protect. For love and peace to reign. In Jesus name. God bless America.

Jordan is 21

  It is never going to make sense, seeing my little’s become adults. Jordan has officially joined the ranks! The transition from teen to adult appeared smooth to me although he may tell a different story.  Jordan has always seemed like a young/old man to me. I remember holding him only a couple of hours after his birth and looking […]

Black Panther

Lead us to Wakanda! It was an event just walking in to the movie theaters to watch the film. So many people dressed in their Dashiki’s, others with shoulders layered in colorful Kente cloth. My favorite character… Okoye. A warrior after my heart. We were enamored. Wakanda Forever!

New P.E. routine

One challenge for us in the midst of all of our running to and fro between home-school coops and classes is finding consistent time for physical activity. We decided to add in a little gym time to the schedule. Kobe enjoyed lifting weights though I think the workout got the best of him in the end.

Whenever we have an opportunity to utilize a work trip for togetherness time we take it! The hubby had some visits to make in New York which was right up my alley. We stayed in the heart of Manhattan which added its own extra flavor to the excursion. Speaking of flavor, to all my fellow cheesecake junkies, I have one […]
