Great News 😊

Yesterday something fantastic happened.  I got asked to be a regular contributor for a blog I highly esteem.  I have followed this blog for YEARS and in all honesty I felt their writers were “out of my league”.  They were (in my opinion) the cool kids of writing.  I actually was very nervous about the… Continue reading Great News 😊

Good Things in This Season

This weekend was a very good weekend. I took off Friday and though I had some running around to do I enjoyed a nice lunch alone at one of my favorite restaurants.

A Glimpse Into My Day

I leave class 30 minutes early because I finished my practice tax return in record time.  The CPA teaching the class is impressed.  I’m just grateful.  Seeing as how I registered a month late for the class, I’m totally relying on Jesus for me to get up to speed on the material.  As usual He’s… Continue reading A Glimpse Into My Day

Super Moms

Ready. Set. Leap…

I had this great epiphany today that I’m in transition.  For the last 6 months I’ve been growing out my relaxer and slowly joining the “natural hair movement”.  For the uniformed, this movement consists of African American women letting go of chemically processing their hair and opting to don their natural and coily locks.  In… Continue reading Ready.
