4 Years: 1,461 Days

Today the husband and I have been married for exactly 4 years. You know how people always talk about time flying? Yeah, this is one of those moments. The craziest part about this being our four-year anniversary is how much can change in only a matter of four years. To think of the two 23 year olds who got married in that church in, Evanston, IL four years ago, compared to the parents knocking on 30’s door year olds we are today…a lot has changed. Read more

My Old School “Man Crate”

If you are like 99.9% of the world, we love the nostalgic feeling of going down memory lane in our lives. Particularly, our childhood and what made it so special and different from other generational childhood memories. I was recently contacted by the community manager for a company called, “Man Crates“, after she read my […]

“Beauty”

I love R&B music. I specifically love 90’s R&B when male and female R&B groups were everywhere making great music. So you will see a lot of 90’s R&B music/groups on my page for music days. This song came on my Pandora station the other day, and you know that feeling you get when you […]

Ironically, I had this blog post scheduled to post on Sunday. But I woke up this morning, and read Ben E. King passed away yesterday, and felt it was only right to post it today instead. A beautiful song to remember a beautiful man.  R.I.P. Ben E. King. We’ve all seen the classic movie “Stand […]
