Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, my friends! Work has me busier than a Queen Bee; finding the time to blog has been next to impossible when sleep is a priority. The older I get, the mire I appreciate a slower pace and the solitary urgency of self-care. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year-probably because it was the last one I shared with my maternal grandmother before her 2009 transition to her heavenly home. This has been a transformational year for me-moving from the half century mark to beyond. I’m grateful for so much over this past year. I’ve experienced a heap of “newness” – a new job, new role, new car, new way of eating, and just a renewed attitude!
For this Thanksgiving blog entry, I’ll post pictures of my last two retis-from the first week of October and just a week ago in November.
October 2019 Reti with April:
Just a cute picture…representing Orange Mound, TN 🍊🍊 during Homecoming Week at my school.
On a Fall Break cruise with my cousin, Randy, mid-October. He wears Brotherlocs!
Just a growth comparison…this was us two years ago, October 2017, on another cruise!
Back to the mid-October 2019 cruise. A couple more pics of us chilling in the Caribbean.
Guess who celebrated a birthday recently? 🙋🏽♀️ Here I am (below) with my husband about to head out for a bite to eat on my birthday.
And a happy birthday to me it was!!!
Here I am on my way to work, rocking the updo…you can tell it was time again for a reti! 🤣
Speaking of retis…November 2019 Reti with April:
Representing the World’s Greatest Sorority later that evening – fresh Reti.
Here I am today, November 25th…at work, trying to get ahead of my paperwork before the holiday rush comes.
And by comparison…me, two years ago, same outfit, baby locs. 🥰
Whether you are spending Thanksgiving Day with family, with friends, or just alone…wishing you a peaceful and safe holiday!
Until next time,
