This is the beginning of a beautiful journey!

29 May

Welcome to!

This is random but true…the other day I was looking around and noticing mothers with their children…and it made me think… (#1 Whoa I am so not ready for that! lol) But #2, Am I living the type of life that would make my future self proud? Or my future child proud? Days go by so fast! I’ve been living in Silver Spring, MD for almost a year and I have done a lot (visited the new Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial, Smithsonian Portrait and American Art museums, Silver Spring local wine festival, Gaylord Resort, Girls weekend in DC, etc.) but I have so much more to do. So many more things to check off my list. A list I’m still brainstorming and adding to. I wanted some place where I could chronicle this journey, these amazing and fun challenges, for myself, my family, friends and whomever else should be inspired by a post or two.

So first things first…What’s on my list so far? Well… Some things have been in my mind for years and other things I’m adding as I think of them. As of today I’ve got:

  1. Learn to sew and design clothing, accessories, tapestries, etc.
  2. Run a half marathon (and be fit in general).
  3. Read 10 biographies.
  4. Attend a film festival.
  5. Attend a music festival.
  6. Bring my godsons to DC for a weekend.
  7. Increase my credit score.
  8. Take a trip to New Orleans, LA.
  9. Swim in fresh water!
  10. Get courageous with my locs!
  11. Master some gourmet meals.
  12. Go on a weekend trip with my girlfriends.
  13. Take a jewelry making class.
  14. Sell a limited collection.
  15. Design on a dime.
  16. Document my family story.
  17. Foster a pet.
  18. Get back to my first love.
  19. Serve.
  20. Lift weights with the big boys.
  21. Be the best Social Worker I can be.
  22. Give back to my home town.
  23. Plan a trip to Paris.
  24. Spend a night under the stars.
  25. Take a class at a HBCU.
  26. Eat Clean for a month.
  27. 3D. Daddy daughter days.
  28. Spend a weekend with mom.
  29. Get organized. For good.

Okay, I will add more to this list and figure out how to format this blog so it’ll be all cool n stuff. :p

At the end of this journey (17 months) I hope that I am a better woman, friend, girlfriend, daughter, godmother, aunt, social worker, and servant.

Here I go!!!
