National Reconciliation Day

It’s a beautiful thing to discover a fault, recognize the wrong doing and make a conscience decision to not only to say sorry but to turn from the fault and do the right thing in changing the behavior. I know a few folks missed a few steps in this short paragraph so in order to…

Do you know how much energy it takes to mind your business, drink your water, exercise, get your coin, and balance? It’s takes a lot of work to maintain what little bit of life one attempts to have. Now add a baby or a kid and you might as well hope for the best. Motherhood…

I ❤️ Alice

The most beautiful love story that isn’t filled with cookie cutter presence. Love that unfolds mixed with uncertainty, a few doses of patience, and an uphill battle to allow love to be what it is pure and whole. I laughed from beginning to end but it was a laughter from familiarity. Love is special between two…

Monday Motivation: Fear of Trying Something Different

It’s no secret that I have always considered myself pretty bold. I love trying new things but that doesn’t mean that every now and again that I don’t get nervous about trying a few new things here and there. I think we all can relate. The fear of the unknown can sometimes be super debilitating….

Today is super sad. I can’t shake the sadness. I had another blog planned today but at the end of the day it doesn’t seem right to post. Whether you thought Kobe was an amazing basketball player is neither here nor there. His work ethic speaks for itself. However, the videos we see circulating of his…

Sunday Message: Your tribe Matters

It’s one thing to be born into a family and not be able to choose who you are around. It’s another to consistently pick the wrong tribe and blame it on others. Often times the one you choose reflects who you are. That can change from time to time. When I was in college not…

National C-section

Today is the day we get to talk about all things C-sections. The first C-section was done on January 14, 1794. Although they have come a long way since than they are still very dangerous and serious! I remember growing up and not hearing too many stories about them.  So much so that it wasn’t…
