I had a break up y'all!! And because life has 'learned me' a thing or two. I'm smiling about it.

At this moment in time life is steady and almost routine. I'm not complaining at all about that because I think there's comfort in routine. I've been working and enjoying time off from being a football mom. But kind of looking forward to the excitement of our next football season as crazy as that sounds.… Continue reading January
It’s 2022… A 2021 recap
To say that time flies by is an understatement. I mean... time really does get away from us. I haven't posted anything since February 2021. That's INSANE. BJ is eleven and B2 is seven and my heart is full. Today I read back over all of my "walking wounded posts." I've been feeling funky and… Continue reading It’s 2022… A 2021 recap
Today I miss having someone to love. It sounds so flippant. Of course there’s BJ and B2 but that’s different, that’s maternal. Today I miss really loving someone. The happiness that you feel thinking about the person you love. The security in having a person in that capacity. And definitely/of course being loved in return.… Continue reading Valentine’s Day
The grief monster
I've written before about this time of year, the time of year leading up to the day the bottom fell out. Somewhere in between BJ's birthday and February I start feeling like my nerve endings are starting to fray. Everything I touch I feel, like I've been partially holding my breath because I can't quite… Continue reading The grief monster
My Village… Thank you…
Today I want to write about friendships. When Byron died my friends stepped in. They did this thing where even if they barely knew each other they formed this connection with each other in order to be there for me. In my mind when I think about it I see a group of girls holding… Continue reading My Village… Thank you…
I have a habit of jumping into things with both feet, being a bit impulsive and THEN looking back and realizing that I'm having problems because I acted before thinking. I've been working on that this year. I've called this my year of sitting still. No going fast. No dating. No self induced negative energy.… Continue reading Sitting Still…
My sunshine… on a rainy day turns 6.
I'm trying to take notice of all of the beautiful moments that come while parenting. Even if they're only momentary breaks in the middle of a storm...
My little project
When Byron died I started reading about children’s grief, ways to help BJ cope and things that I could expect from him along the way. I wanted to make sure that I went about things the “right” way. And hoped to avoid any mistakes I could by finding what worked and didn’t work for others.… Continue reading My little project
The slow down
So we're in month million of Covid -19... the boys are back home. We've found our groove again and I turned 38 yesterday. I've been working on my patio thanks to the Black Women who Love Outdoor Living Spaces group on Facebook. I've been doing home projects thanks to Black Women who love interior design… Continue reading The slow down
