Friday Five Recently | Week 6

It's a rainy Friday in the Carolinas but I'm not complaining.  This rain is greatly appreciated because we need it.  Our yard has been looking like a dry cracked desert for weeks.  We're supposed to get more rain throughout the weekend.  So we'll be hanging out indoors for the most part.  In the meanwhile though, let's catch up friends!

"Welcome to New York.  It's been waiting for you."  It's been three years since we've hit the streets of the Big Apple with our favorite pet pals.  Now The Secret Life Of Pets 2 is adventuring into theaters on June 7th just in time to kickoff Summer Break!  Here's a look at why the kids and I are beyond excited to catch up with Max and the gang.

Rosie's Easter Bash 2019

Happy Belated Easter!!  After almost two weeks of being on house arrest thanks to the insane amount of the pollen that has been suffocating the Carolinas, we finally made a break for it and journeyed outside.  This past weekend, I loaded up the kids and we went into downtown Lancaster for the annual Rosie's Easter Bash community event.

Happy New Year! I hope that 2019 got off to a great start for everyone. These past few weeks I’ve been planning and mapping out my goals and what I want to accomplish this year. One thing new thing I did this year was set self-care goals. Last year, I didn’t make self-care a priority like I should have and it showed.

This won’t be the case for 2019. I’ve already started tackling my main self-care goal which is to master the art of doing my curly hair. It’s been about 10 years since I made the decision to go and stay natural. But despite being 10 years deep in this natural hair journey, my biggest struggle remains styling my hair when it’s in its naturally curly state.

Giving The Gift of Love and Appreciation

"Give me my flowers while I'm living.  Show me that you love and appreciate me while I'm still alive."  Growing up my mom preached (and still does) the importance of showing and consistently letting those closest to our hearts how we feel about them before their time runs out on Earth.   Once our loved one depart permanently, you can't rewind time and say all of the loving things you wished said or do the loving things you wished would have done.  Trust me, I learned this the hard way (again) when my surrogate grandmother passed a few weeks ago.
