We’re Diving.

“Ok, we’re diving today.” Instantly, I look at her. I try to read her face. I immediately give a thumbs up! As a mom, that’s what I’m supposed to do, right? Support and encourage. I could tell she was apprehensive. I was too. I could tell that she had big thoughts and feelings about this new experience. I did too. Diving off of the high board?! She had never done this before.

And STILL, Breonna Taylor.

There are certain moments that force you out of your comfort zone and push you forward. Writing And STILL, Breonna Taylor last July was one of those moments for me. There comes a time when you have to speak up and this time it was for my sisters & I. (Happy Black History EVERY day!)


"The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned." - Maya Angelou. To me, home is a feeling. It's where joy, peace and love abound. It's not just about being comfortable, it's about freedom and having the space to be exactly who you are. I've been in my hometown in Ohio since early July and it has been a much needed recharge.

We, The Mothers…

I'm still riding the wave of inspiration, celebration and love that I was beautifully overwhelmed with on Mother's Day weekend. Mother's Day has passed but I still feel like celebrating... and I'm feeling very poetic.
