I am a sucker for love and romance. Me encanta el sentimiento de estar enamorada. The key to keeping relationships and marriages fresh and new is to get OUT OF THE HOUSE! Your outings don’t have to be lavish and expensive. It’s easy to find great date destinations for little to no money. For the next few weeks throughout the summer, I will be sharing creative date and getaway ideas....more
Hindsight is a beautiful thing. I've never really been an early adopter. I'm fixed in my ways and stuck in my own beliefs. When I do believe in something, you can bet your bottom dollar I do so with insatiable passion. I'm not proud of this rigidity, but I'm working on it.
I remember the times where I knew I would be great and certainly be resilient over my challenges. I spent the majority of my childhood ignoring the largest issue of my adulthood.

He started splashing her, and she said “Joey, stop it!” but she said it in a placating, whiney voice. He just kept splashing her. I bit my tongue, because what I wanted to do was tell her she was teaching him to ignore her and push past her boundaries....more
Like most of us, Wednesday night's tragedy in Charleston, SC has me beyond upset. I'm sure there have been and will be innumerable articles and posts written about how this shooting impacts us as black people and as society, so I won't add to the list. But I can write about how it has impacted me.
