Magic On Magnolia

I like magic…and it’s not just because I’m black lol! Magic is a glimpse into the realm of wonderment. It gives me the chance to not know it all and be pleasantly surprised (something that if ya know me is quite hard to do). But all jokes aside, this local experience really takes the cake.

Back It Up

Wow it’s been some months! I know I have a tendency to go offline, but to be fair, I really suck at being online because I don’t do it right. My bias for doing and documenting has eluded me. That’s why today is the day I’m going to down load my back log of adventures that have been sitting in my phone collecting figurative dust! Shall we?

A Vacation For The Record

When I think of vacation, I think of blue skies, a nice sandy beach, warm ocean water, and of course this year for our first family vacation, I had thoughts of us being in optimal health to enjoy all that lovely weather.

Well…(and I’m sure it won’t look like it from all the following pictures) the last thing on my mind was being sick on vacation, but that’s exactly what happened. Our first family vacation and it was full of runny noses, sneezing, coughing, sore throats, and basically fighting to enjoy all the good that comes with taking a much needed break.

I’m not talking about just myself. We were all sick wit’ it. However, we still managed to have fun at the end of the day.
