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 […]

Falling Forward with Nordstrom

How to purposely navigate the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: First thing’s first.  Don’t shop while you’re hungry applies here as well.  If you are anything like me then you like everything you see.   I tend to become just a  wee bit greedy when it comes to buying clothes especially when there are multiple colors of an […]

Smothered Sister Chops

When it comes to pork chops, there is nothing I love eating more than those that have been well seasoned and pan-fried to perfection. In fact, I’ve been known to fry up some chops just like the ones I’m talking about.  Back when my cooking experience was limited, frying pork chops used to be the […]
