I had a great reunion with this jewel yesterday! I forgot how easily entertained we get when we are together! I am so glad we got to spend some time together. I enjoyed the food, movie, and laughter with you, @lisavdb1965 !!! I love you so much, and I look forward to many more future outings with you! #MakeTimeForThoseYouLove
"A daughter is a miracle that never ceases to be miraculous."
This is my beautiful niece London! Even though she's not mine biologically, I'm glad that God has given me the privilege to treat my niece the way I would treat my daughter if I had one. I love the way that she is unapologetically honest, humble, and straight to the point. Her level of intellect, communication skills, and loyalty are far beyond her years. She is seriously an "old soul" and such a joyful free spirit. She makes me smile when I'm feeling low, laugh when I feel like crying, and gives me tight warm hugs when I'm feeling lonely. I don't think that I'll ever understand how she knows the exact moment that I need her and all that she has to give, but I do know that my life wouldn't be complete if she wasn't in it. I love you London! #London#MyLondonPie#MyLondy#BlackGirlMagic#SpendTimeWithThoseYouLove#MakeTimeForThoseYouLove#BlessedBeyondMeasure#LondonStar (She LOVES to sing and dance! I can't wait to have another session of vocal lessons with her @donniehue@big_naedaddy and @tma2ckdapharaoh149 lol)
Betty is my favorite client ever. She is 76 years young, proud Texan, and enjoys gossip, talking about the Bachelor, and reading trashy magazines. Today she brought her granddaughter in, seeing how close they are was so sweet and refreshing. #maketimeforthoseyoulove
"What inspires your creativity?" I heard this question over and over again at WPPI last week. For me, it's relationships in my life. I feel most inspired to document love when I'm surrounded by it in my own life!
I realized that I wasn't spending the amount of time that I should have with those I love recently. I was/am putting work, social media, travel and so many other things in front of that part of my life. I struggle with this a lot actually because I love my job so much.
For Christmas this year, instead of buying my parents a gift we planned this day on bikes taking them around the city of New Orleans. It could not have come at a better time. I am already feeling the love and rejuvenation that I needed! #findwhatinspiresyou#maketimeforthoseyoulove
