This Whole Blog Is A Masquerade

This Whole Blog Is A Masquerade

I won't pretend that I read/watch the news and know everything that's going on in the world. Most times I get my news from Facebook. Sometimes the stories and what people have to say about them slaps me in the face. It's the big stories, the stories that are close to home, the stories that have gone viral, and the ignorant comments shared about those stories that affect me the most.

Wordless Discipline

Wordless Discipline

My mother is the strong silent type. If she ever had to say or do anything to get her point across, you had pushed her to her limit. Her eyes were her weapon. For very serious matters it was, "Wait until your daddy gets home." But for me, her eyes carried more weight than daddy's spanking ever would.

Photos in the Cloud

Photos in the Cloud

Sharing a post like this just got a little easier for me. A couple weeks ago, one of Apple's updates to the Mac (OS X Yosemite) included photos in the cloud. Now I don't have to email the iPhone photos to myself so that I can blog them. The only downside is that there's a lot of photos that I don't mean to keep forever. You know like pictures of my feet...

A Love/Hate Relationship Story

A Love/Hate Relationship Story

It was January of 2012 when I took this picture. It was my attempt to say goodbye to my snacks and remember them as they were. I can't believe all these snacks were ever in my house all at once for this photo op. In my defense, I did not buy all of those. Some had been given to me weeks prior for my birthday.

Green Smoothies Galore!

I have wondered about green smoothies... I've eyeballed them and thought  50/50 "that looks gross" or "that's pretty!"

Thanks to my cousin Kamilah and another blogger friend BritishMumUSA, I've stepped out of my vanilla, strawberry and peanut butter smoothie box.

The Secretary Has A Story

The Secretary Has A Story

Hopefully if you're reading this post, you're picking up where I left off with my last one, A Photo Story featuring The Secretary. 

If not, you're not missing any background story, except for knowing who "the secretary" is. While I was writing for the Finish the Sentence Friday prompt, I dug up a bit of history by asking my mom a question. By the time I got to "The Secretary" in my post - I had another story to tell.

A Photo Story featuring "The Secretary"

A Photo Story featuring "The Secretary"

I have a whole photo album of pictures I stole from home after I got married and my husband and I were moving out of the country. I can always remember how old I was by looking at my hair. This picture was taken on Christmas morning 1984. I was in the 9th grade and had just turned fourteen...
