White Summer Dress

As a mom of a two-year-old boy, it’s basically impossible for me to wear white without the fear of his little hands or feet getting me dirty.  But seeing as how I think white is the color of Summer, I decided to throw caution to the wind and take my chances with what I think […]

Kids Bathroom Makeover

Oh my goodness, it has been months since I last posted something for y’all, and I am so sorry.  The closing of the school year was one the most hectic I have experienced in a long time.  You’d think this was my first year teaching and not my 19th.  But now that all that is […]

A Romantic Look

Dresses are a weakness of mine. I legit have twenty or more dresses hanging in my closet. Not that that’s a big deal, I’m just saying that while some women are all about jeans, leggings, or sweats, I’m all about dresses. During a recent purge, I realized that while I do have quite a few […]

My Cozy Corner

Today, I am excited to be sharing with you my cute and cozy creative corner.  For years, I have been trying to create a space that would allow me to be productive, get organized, and to create.  Back in 2007, I bought a desk, a book case, and a chair, all with the intent of creating […]

This Month I’m Black, Black

  I know that my title sounds a bit obnoxious to some of you reading this, but what I am saying and what I am feeling is the absolute truth.  The older I become, the more my yearning to celebrate my blackness grows.  I have reached a place in my life where I am ready […]

The Winds of Change

I pretty much love everything Fall has to offer.  The crispness in the air and the leaves as they crunch under my shoe. I love the versatility of the styles and the weather.  I am inspired most this time of the year, and I love sharing my creativity with you.     “Welcomed Winds” The […]

“I’m the Most Important Person in the Room”

I’m getting ready to assign Joan Didion’s essay “On Keeping a Notebook” to my Juniors this week, so of course, I had to reread it and reacquaint myself with it. Like I said, I’ve read it before, but somehow, this particular paragraph (10) resonated with me more this time around; perhaps, it speaks to where […]

A Playmate for Tyson

  Andy had Woody, and Tyson will have James. Today, I observed my toddler cuddle with Elmo, pat Elmo on his back, and tell Elmo to lay down.  I witnessed him comfort, care for, and love Elmo in the same way that we comfort, care for, and love him.  It was the most adorable thing […]
