Stay away from those fast a** boys
That’s pretty much the extent of the “boy talk I received when I was my daughter Jay’s age. (more…)
We tend to talk about love as if it’s some one size fits all idea…..
I Cant Believe We Grew Up Together!
When people think about having a child I’m sure they picture their selves older, married and established ready to give their child the world and instill in them the wisdom they have obtained over the course of their lives. And why wouldn’t they? Bringing another human into this world is continuing your legacy, It’s kind of a big deal, and while most people plan for this moment carefully, a lot of us are unprepared when our little legacy carriers are brought into this world.
I found out I was pregnant with My earth Angel Jael a little after my 17th birthday.
Out of all the relationships I’ve had, I can honestly say, female friendships are the most complex.
Because I’ve grown a lot over the years I can admit that some of the hurt I endured in my past relationships was self inflicted. It’s too easy to blame others for problems that arise without taking a good look at our selves.

There’s been a lot of conversation regarding this topic lately. I’ve seen several really funny videos depicting pretty much what it’s like to be a person of color in today’s society while interacting in different social groups. I recently commented on one of these videos sharing a recent experience at work. The response I received was way larger than I could have imagined so I decided to write a post about it. (more…)
So I’m going to start off by saying that I am a free spirit, I don’t belive in conforming to societies expectation of how a women should carry themselves sexually. I try not to judge other women, period, and who you decide to give the yams to for damn sure isn’t any of my business. I had recently watched the Netflix series “She’s gotta have it” and I thought to myself “I see nothing wrong with it” she was honest with all 3 of them.The only thing that I didn’t agree with is that one of the men she dated were married. When I watched this show I was in a very unique point in my life. I had just come off of a 13 month sexual hiatus. (more…)
