Howdy all, I know I've fallen off the face of the earth. I've been preoccupied with life's challenges for sure. 
The reminder popped up on my screen this morning that today's my bloggerversary. So I felt it was only right to acknowledge this and post a few updates for you. 

I'm still on my natural hair journey. The picture above is of my recent product finds. No matter what this product makes my hair fluffy. It's super soft. Winter's coming so it's time to focus on hydration and low manipulation. 

Recently I had the honor and privilege of meeting my niece Shyia. She lives 4 hours away so it was a treat to meet her this past weekend. 

I went from no nieces to six with another one on the way. Selena will make her debut in October. 
Thus far my sister Porsha and I are the only ones who have only one child. Who knows, my little sister could decide to give us another beauty. I'm done! 

This amazing little girl graduated from high school this summer. She's in school and working two jobs. I'm so proud of her. 
I can't believe how much she's grown and how quickly she's done it either. Last year was very difficult for the both of us. Because she's such an amazing person we found our way through. When it comes to parents and children you get what you get. I've tried my best to be a good mother, and at times that has presented its challenges. The fact that she knows that I act out of love is all I need to know. 

My little drama queen told me:

"Do you promise mom? Cause if you promise then I know for fact it's going to happen."

Stinking brat had me in tears. I guess you have to have lived a life of broken promises to understand the gravity of that statement. 

Let's see, do I have any other noteworthy achievements?

OH YES! My grey hairs are coming in full force thanks to the lovely stresses of my life. I wish I could get them without the stress but I'm happy all the same. 

My weight has been the last of my worries. Yes, I need to get a handle on it. However, for the first time in life I'm not self conscious about it. It simply is what it is, and it doesn't take away from the amazing person that I am. 

Thank you, you know who you are. You helped me get here. 🤗🤗

I'm still a dork! Laughing every chance I get. I'll try to get over here more often. Make sure you subscribe so I know you're waiting for more.
