  1. Hair, Health, Hubby, Hobby, & High Hopes!

    Hi ladies! I know I've been MIA but I've had so much going on.

I don't even feel the need to trim it like I did before. My last relaxer was the Sunday before Thanksgiving and I plan to do my next one in February.

  4. 59 days left until the end of the year

    59 days left until the end of the year. This has been an amazing year for me. Lots of emotional and spiritual growth. And learning what brings me joy. And getting cancerous people out of my life, so I can make room for positive people.

    Realizing that I do almost everything I dream about, got me so excited. I can barely sleep now. And every time I want to relax, my mind says get back to work. It really feels like a fire is blazing in me. And I absolutely know that everything is possible. ...
