My mom worked at least two jobs for as long as I can remember during my growing up years. It was difficult as a single woman raising three kids on […]
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 […]
My husband has a work trip in Naples this week. The kids and I decided to make a vaca out of it. This is only the second road trip Maximus […]

Tori, Khyre and the kidos suprised us by coming by Saturday to give Mother’s Day gifts and hugs quarantine style. Such sweet but sad moments. I may or may not […]
Not everyone was excited to participate in Natalie’s practice driving session.
Who else appreciates snapchat filters. It’s our family’s new fun communication method. This one tickled me. #iwilltakeher
Being selected to be apart of the Ambassador show choir has been the highlight of Natalie’s year. It has enriched her vocal training and increased her confidence not only as a vocalist but as a teammate.

My Jordan is the most logical, serious guy in the tribe so whenever we can catch him in moments of silliness, it gives the rest of us great pleasure.

This is how we do it. Dates with the g-babies are an event. We sang, danced, read books and I taught Kenna how to play Old Maid. I was so worried that Nomi would cry with her mama not being in sight but she did great and get big sister kept her entertained.
We made brunch for Tori’s birthday. The whole tribe (and a few adopted members) swarmed her home for a few hours. Ironically as I was thinking about what to say about my oldest I came across a draft in my blog that I had written for her birthday ten years ago. How crazy (and perfect) is time?! To my 16 […]
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!
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 […]
