Buffalo, With Love

It’s very early, not even six in the morning. I’ve been up for a while. Opening blinds and peeking at two plants I received recently that needed some severe TLC. The only sounds I hear are my own feet walking to and fro and the chirping of what seems like millions of birds. I’m typing […]

20 of My Favorite Pods!

I love to talk. I started talking at a relatively young age and I haven’t stopped yet. Therefore, it is no surprise that I am an avid listener of podcasts. The peak started when I was on maternity leave in the midst of the pandemic. Harper was born right before the world shut down. We […]

Grace and the Golden Hour

During this unprecedented time in our lives the one word that continues to swirl around and around in my mind is grace. For those of us whom have not lost our jobs during this pandemic we are finding our way back to work-many of us are loosening the way in which we may move throughout […]

Our Story To Tell…

Yesterday was one of those days. You know what I’m talking about, the kind of day where all normal routines seems to go haywire.

“…then you ain’t black!”

There’s always been this assumption that the Democratic Party […]

Our New Normal

It’s amazing how quickly things have changed. In a matter of months we went from shaking hands, hugging, and standing close together to social distancing. I for one coveted the concept of happy hour dates as I waited to give birth. Never in a million years did I think I’d still be waiting for that […]

Love In the Time of Corona

Love. You find out real quick what’s real and what’s not when you’re living that quarantine life. Unfortunately the coronavirus continues to have a large influence on our everyday life. Kids are home from school-many are working from home (IF they’re still gainfully employed) and life as we know it is forever changed. At this […]

The Inequality Crisis

Among the myriad Covid-19 news reports one that stood out to me (for obvious reasons) was the data collected around whom is dying at a higher rate from this insidious disease. Black and brown people. I can’t say I’m surprised. This pandemic has ripped the band aid off the many inequalities that exist and thrive […]

Self Isolation Has Taught Us…

The daily use of social media is so normalized-we almost forgot how much we thrive on real time social interaction. We can sit here and make a list of all the negative and positive attributes of social media. I’ve always noted how social media has increased the level of social awkwardness between individuals whom may […]
