Reminiscing through my camera roll back to Labor Day 2015!  Great curly hair day.  This was day ONE hair. Itโ€™s one of my BEST Wash n Go Styles to date.  Natural curly hair is so UNPREDICTABLE.  Finding the right products for YOUR hair is key.  It doesnโ€™t matter the size or texture of your curls.  Itโ€™s always a proverbial crap shoot dependent on the weather! ๐Ÿ˜ High temps or high humidity can take your sleek defined curls to a ball of frizz in .5 seconds. ๐Ÿ‘€ Nothing inherently wrong with frizz, unless that wasnโ€™t your hair style plan for the day. ๐Ÿ™„ LOVE my curls! ๐Ÿ˜ But curly hair requires a solid hair care  regimen ie maintenance aka WORK.  Iโ€™ll be sharing more about my current regimen (it changes over time) in the coming weeks.  In these photos the hair was style with my all time fave @miss_jessies Multicultural Curls.  Letโ€™s see what type of hair day Labor Day 2018 will bring.... Iโ€™ll post if it stays CUTE!  Lol๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ ENJOY the day!

So much to say... I woke up early this morning with Queen Aretha (my Auntie in my heart) on my mind.  Her song โ€œGod will take care of youโ€ in particular.  Itโ€™s from her critically acclaimed and BEST selling Gospel Album of ALL Time #AmazingGrace.  My Mom raised me on Arethaโ€™s music. 
So her music is very PERSONAL to me and my life.  As I know it is to so many millions of others worldwide.  She was truly an International Treasure.  For me music has been and continues to be a life sustainer.  Make no mistake my faith in God is my source.  However, he creates and blesses us with music from an extraordinaire like Aretha!  My mother kept her music, gospel AND secular on constant play in our home.  I mean we sung (both my parents were singers) to her music, cleaned the house, cooked dinner, baked, car trips, parties, holidays you name it...some Aretha music was most likely playing in the background.  Her music helped me get through the darkest days of my motherโ€™s passing.  It was the one normal thing of the past I could grasp that kept me sane.  The Ultimate Soundtrack of our lives. 
I guess my spirit knew today would be the day weโ€™d have to say good bye....๐Ÿ˜ข Rest Well Queen!  THANK YOU! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโค๏ธ You were the Legend of Legends.  What an EXTRAORDINARY Iife you lived!  All hail the Queen!  #QueenofSoul #ArethaFranklin #GreatestSingerofALLTime #LegendofLegends #GOAT #ExtraordinaryLife #RIP ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ Yes this is one of the original 8 Track Tapes from my Motherโ€™s music collection.  I couldnโ€™t part with it when she passed.  Of course now in my adult life I own this album in multiple forms:  cassette, CD, and now Apple Music.  Her music will forever be a constant in my life...โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Some days my Mom would let me ride my bike, well OKAY...๐Ÿ™„ my tricycle around the house. ๐Ÿคฃ Of course in agreed upon designated areas only.

Wishing a Happy Heavenly Birthday to my Father...my Daddy!  He was born on July 24th 1933.  Yesterday would have been his 85th birthday.  Itโ€™s a date Iโ€™ll never forget. My Dad transitioned 18 years ago in 2000.  In my work and travels I meet so many lovely vibrant folks living their best life in their 80โ€™s.  My Dad would have definitely been a member of that crowd.  Itโ€™s hard to believe this photo was taken in Connecticut back in 1996 on Memorial Day.  It was last big barbecue my mom hosted.  It was such a beautiful day with family and friends.  Iโ€™m forever  THANKFUL for the photos and memories.  BUT Iโ€™ll ALWAYS miss my dad. Daddy continue to Rest in Sweet Peace.  Love you always, your way over 40 baby girl! ๐Ÿ˜‰โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ #InMyFeelingsToday #happyheavenlybirthday #waybackwednesday #daddysgirlforever #daddysgirl #fathers #daddy #daddyandme #gonetoosoon #fatheranddaughters #happybirthdaydad #missingmydad #gonebutneverforgotten #mua #blogger #Daughter

I had a great time at the 10 ANNUAL DC Housing Expo.  This was my 2nd year attending.  Great resource information was available on home buying, apartment leasing, and affordable housing programs.  Along with decor ideas, live entertainment and healthy cooking demonstrations.  I finally had the opportunity to tour one of those tiny homes. ๐Ÿค—  My good friend Pastry Chef Extrodainaire Padua Player @sugachef shared his fabulous recipe for a delicious vegan chocolate cake with strawberries.
