Dear Shonda,

I’m soooooo glad it’s Thursday!!!!

Grey’s, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder, I LOVE all 3 shows! Thursday nights belong to you! 3 great shows on 1 network all in 1 night. In my opinion, You (Shonda) are one of the most talented people in Hollywood. I am so proud to call you sista!

Times are changing, we finally get to see three very talented women play the “leading” characters on three of the most talked about primetime tv shows: Dr. Meredith Grey, The Formidable Olivia Pope, and Professor Annalise Keating. I appreciate Shondaland for bringing these powerful women to life. They are flawed and fabulous all at the same time! I’m so glad the break is over! I’m so ready for all the drama that these shows bring to my life!!  I know that we are in for an emotional rollercoaster! The Gladiators are pumped and ready to go!

With Anticipation & Excitement,



Selma, The Dream Marches On

Hands down, Selma is probably one of the best movies I have seen. It was moving. It was inspirational. For me, it was a tear jerker. . . I cried quite a few times while viewing this movie. My favorite part was the march from Selma to Montgomery. The story was real. The rush of emotions during the “Night March and the Bloody Sunday” scenes were real.  The silence that was felt in the theater was real. This movie made me proud to be an African American woman, Ava DuVernay, the film’s director made history when she became the first woman of color to be nominated for Best Director for the Golden Globes. It is truly something special when someone that looks like you is recognized for the work that they’ve done. This story needed to be told, and I’m glad she brought it to life. Selma is definitely a movie that I wouldn’t mind paying to see again. It was worth the time and the money. I am so proud of this film, and I’m so thankful for the people that made voting for people of color possible. Films like Selma remind me that, it is JUST THAT SERIOUS. Be aware. Educate yourselves about the candidates. Get informed about the local elections as well as the national ones. Exercise your right to Vote. No Vote, No Voice.  #Selma50


Two Thousand Fourteen

For a few days, I have been going back and forth in my mind about what my first post should be about.

Should I talk about how great 2014 was?

2014 was a year full of twists and turns. Change happened. Progress happened. Some doors closed, and then more doors opened. My faith was stretched. My resilience was tested. In the end though, I was victorious. In February of 2014, Bishop McCluster said, “there are some things you just have to Grow Through;” and for me 2014 was definitely the “Year of Growth.”

Should I express my excitement about planning my wedding? Should I go on and on and on about my trip to Puerto Rico with my Bff Jen? Should I talk about how we conquered Stone Mountain? Should I talk about how happy I am that gas prices are down? Maybe the Spring Break Adventure with my God-kids in the Bahamas? I could definitely talk about how much I love my job! Or maybe how much I adore my sista friends? Yea, I still don’t have a particular subject, and I’m sure that I will eventually talk about all those things . . . so I’ll just say that 2014 was one of the best years of my life! So many wonderful things happened for me and my peeps. From career changes, to job promotions, to engagements, to pregnancies, to reaching weight loss goals, to closing on new houses, to open doors and new opportunities, God showered His blessings in 2014.


My Bishop said that 2015 is the “Year of Privilege,” and I am so looking forward to all the amazing things that will happen within the next 11 months.
