The Subtle Art of Arting

****Culturati Post**** Due to the lack of dull moments in my home, I've had a lot to discuss about motherhood lately. Not today. A few mornings ago, I found myself at a business event. In the early days of Art Crush (2014-15), I went to networking events often. It was never really my cup of tea honestly, but I knew that I’d have to be uncomfortable in order to one day live as comfortably as I plan. I have to admit I met some really awesome people in the process who proved to be supportive and informative. I also got...

  Thought I wasn't gonna get around to posting this week, huh? Yep. So did I. LOL! But here we are. Recently, I posted on Facebook about my excitement regarding my son’s upcoming foray into public school. I'm BEYOND ready for him to be out of my sight for a few hours during the day. Like, seriously…we see each other too much. Not to mention, I HAVE GOALS. I noticed upon posting my elation (and subsequent celebratory twerking) that people really love to put other folks in boxes. Since that post, I've read and heard things like: “You're not gonna...

Wu-Tang and ClatchetA few months ago I spent a wonderful weekend with some of my girls on St. Simon's Island, GA. We seem to have a thing for obscure places without the hustle and bustle of city life. Our weekend was spent eating, laughing, eating, laughing, eating, and laughing. Between the meals and guffaws, we indulged and watched pure hilarity on TV (insert "Insecure" on HBO...by the way, catch up or watch it again before the new season airs on July 23!!!). Awesome weekend away from the responsibilities of wife-, mother-, and granddaughterhood. So let's get to the crux of...

Long time no see! About 2 years to be exact. Go ahead and air punch me, I give you permission. For the past year and some change, I found myself somewhere in the crosswalk of despair and desperation. Despair because I lost my father, grandfather, and father-in-law in a 9 month span. Desperation because I wanted my old life and old self to return so badly. During my time away, I've learned so much about everything, especially myself. Before my father died unexpectedly in a motorcycle crash, I had every facet of my life planned out to a science. Even down to blog posts; I...
