• I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie
  • My main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

  • Y’all! This is my baby! How did this happen?! She’ll be 10 in July (going on 17). She swears she’s already a teenager and should get a phone. No ma’am! Stay my baby 😓. Also, get into this blazer tho! Link in profile. #fashionkids

Mama and Her Cubs

November 14, 2016

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Now more than ever, I just want to love on my babies and encourage them to be the best they can be.  The recent events have confirmed what I already knew, we are responsible for ourselves and don’t expect anyone to give you anything.  These next four years may not be easy but this mama is going to protect her cubs.  ck-2 ck-3ck-1 ck-4 ck-5

Dress c/o Chloe Kristyn 

Harper: Boots, H+M | Headband, Target (similar)

Peyton: Hat, Target | Boots, Payless (similar)

Trina: Hat, H+M

The more I do these girl squad pictures is the more I think to myself “Is this the last one?”.  Harper went from being uninterested in taking photo to trying to destroy them.  The last photo says it all.  Peyton is still a true professional.

I know most of us are still trying to heal from last weeks events.  This election is more than about who won.  It’s about what that win really stands for.  It’s a hard pill to swallow.  I’m praying for peace and understanding in our country.  With God, I know we will make it through these next few years.  Just think, Thanksgiving is already next week.  A few more of those and 2020 will be here before you know it *wink*.

    You’re so right! All we can do is press on positively and create out own light. Love these pics!

    Cuteness overload! Y’all should have incorporated some red into this look just to add a little spice. Nevertheless, y’all look really nice. I lover Harper’s expression on that last pic!
