i appreciate the @sprinkleofjesus app so much! they send timely notifications daily that help keep me grounded and introspective. this one came through earlier, and is extremely timely. my nana passed away on this date in 2008. 8:30 am. 3 days before my 25th birthday. i will never forget that day. i think about her all the time. now, i can smile at the memories. before, not so much. it still hurts. i don't think it'll ever stop. but i can attest to the fact that it has gotten better. this morning, i let this message be my guide for the day. i took a deep breath from the moment i opened my eyes, prayed throughout the day for peace, and i received just that. i had an enjoyable day under the sun, and i carried nana with me. #restinpeace #mygirl #iloveyou #imissyou

the feeling i had driving over this bridge was surreal. standing on the corner of downtown selma's main street, i felt like i was in a time warp. it was only about 50 years ago that the senseless horror of "bloody sunday" occurred. my parents were 6 and 7 years old. think about similar racial injustices and tragic events that have taken place during the childhood of today's 6-7 year old children. a lot has changed since the 60s... and a lot more progress is still needed. #monday #roadtrip #ontheroadagain #girlstrip #vacation #selma #alabama #history #summer #summervibes #birthdaymonth #birthdaygirl

next stop on this summer road trip: florida. but first, a brief detour to selma, alabama, to take in some history. i literally felt transported to the past while here. it's crazy how the more things change, the more they stay the same. #monday #roadtrip #ontheroadagain #girlstrip #vacation #selma #alabama #history #summer #summervibes #birthdaymonth #birthdaygirl

it wasn't just play in atlanta. i tended to some business for the betterment of my business as well. i did that by attending a phenomenal brunch event for female entrepreneurs hosted by @iamwendynicole. i've been waiting to meet wendy for a MINUTE now, and we finally made it happen! ❤️ she is a business systems strategist and one of the best in the industry! [google her - she's got client testimonials and success stories for days.] each of the business women in attendance are from different industries. there was a ghostwriter, an esthetician with her own line of professional skin care, a maker of dog products, and more! plus me, an event planner and strategist specializing in weddings and corporate events who focuses on creating premium experiences for my clients and their guests. through this experience, we were each able to receive laser 1:1 coaching from wendy re: issues we've been facing in our businesses. we also shared feedback with one another, which was extremely valuable as well. @localthree, thanks so much for the hospitality. the food was amazing! #sunday #sundayfunday #brunch #entrepreneur #womanpreneur #professionaldevelopment #girlpower #blackgirlmagic #work #werk #inspired #eventplanner #weddingplanner #weekend #roadtrip #girlstrip #vacation #atlanta #localthree #summer #summervibes #birthdaymonth #birthdaygirl
