My daughter is 12 and, for the most part, independent. She is quiet and introspective. A chatty Cathy she is not. Getting her to talk about herself and her feelings has never come naturally to her. I press when...
I am deeply saddened to announce the loss of the end of my left eyebrow as well as some of my eyelid. I debated whether to post my story, but as hard as it is for me to discuss,...
After I had my kids, when they were little particularly, getting out of the house was hard. It was such a production to prepare mentally/physically to go to the mall or any other place for that matter. And even...
Ok Target! Thanks for honoring Black History Month. February is full of events. It’s the month of love, Mardi Gras season is now a geaux and the celebration of Black History Month. For me, I celebrate it all the time...

Living in a Hole Apparently, I've been living in a hole. I've heard about dry shampoo but never felt like it was something I'd ever use and maybe even secretly questioned those who did use it. Why don't they just...
OUR day is coming. The one day we are celebrated while wishing OUR day was celebrated monthly, weekly, or how about daily ... Mother’s Day. Sure we appreciate the day off, the spa gift certificate, our sparkling cleaned car, and...

How It Began It started as a child. I would ask for no butter because I didn't want the added calories. As a teenager, I thought being vegetarian would help keep me thin. The problem was that I didn't like...
Mardi Gras attire has come a long way since I was a kid, y'all. I distinctly remember my Granny's multi colored 'tinsel' style wig that she wore with her purple, green and gold shirt. I was dressed as Alvin...
