But First Coffee


It’s National Coffee Day!



I know times are changing
It’s time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too

Prince, Purple Rain



Besides my affinity for His Royal Highness of badness, I wore this t-shirt because my alma mater, East Carolina University, played Old Dominion University yesterday. Our colors are purple and gold (not to be confused with LSU!).

We have had a challenging few years athletically (to put it mildly). And our season has been a little tumultuous already–on and off the field.

But I am still a Pirate. Well, bless the lawd, we WON! Now I’m not going to say this is the total reason why, but my mom (a fellow ECU alum who is also my Pastor) accompanied my dad to the game yesterday. The first game she’s attended in several years…


Coincidence? I think not LOL

Shout out to the cuzzo, Pastor Antonio Matthews, for being my photographer.


I’ve worn this thrifted skirt (from Goodwill Denver) twice since I purchased it last month–I adore it. The vibrant colors and huge flowers make me so happy. Graphic tees (or sweatshirts) and skirts are one of my branded style uniforms. Graphic tees add a touch of whimsy to maybe an otherwise simple outfit.
