I don’t know if I come across as one of those people who have it all together. I hope not. I mean, I try to keep it real and let you know that I suck at cooking for my family and my house is usually a wreck. My husband and I don’t always agree and… read the rest.
I’m trying to plan an awesome birthday party for my soon-to-be 3-year-old. Some of my friends tell me their almost-3-year-olds have given then all of the details of where they want their party to be, and what kind of theme. Lil’ J was like that before her third birthday. She wanted a Rapunzel-themed party at… read the rest.
Every once in awhile I’ll have a generally well-meaning person tell me they don’t even notice I’m black. “I’m color blind,” they say. I personally believe this statement is coming from one of two places. Either one where they’re trying to defend themselves from the appearance of being racist. Or (more commonly) in an attempt… read the rest.
When my mom first moved to Austin she rented a home less than a block away from a railroad crossing. Every time we visited Granny he’s run over to the window to watch the trains go by. This would happen at least twice an hour. Then, we went to Disney World. We knew our already… read the rest.

It’s like I’ve traveled back in time to the sleep-deprived days of having a newborn. Except my kids are 4 and 2 and I’m not lactating.

“I like that picture of me as a baby mom, my skin was nice and white,” my daughter told me last week. “What?” I asked her. Thinking I heard right, but hoping I didn’t. “My skin was white, I wish I could go back to that,” she clarified. “Your skin is beautiful the way it… read the rest.
In the short time since I’ve started this little project I can see it changing the way I think. It has been more than just a challenge for me to take at least one photo a day. It’s turned into a coping mechanism when my kids are driving me up the wall. Big T was… read the rest.
I’ve mentioned before how much I was dreading turning 30. Well, I found the perfect way to ring in a new decade, with a new vision board! A vision board (also known as a dream board) is a tool used to help you achieve your goals by having them displayed in front of you daily. I made my… read the rest.
I know we officially become adults when we turn 18, but for some reason I feel like I’m just now hitting the official adult age… 30. I mean 18, 19, you’re still a teenager, and in your 20s you’re figuring stuff out. Once you turn 30 it’s like ready or not you are officially GROWN… read the rest.
