Is their love story awesome or what!? 👇🏿👇🏿 #Repost @blacklovedoc
This #WhyISaidIDo reflection is from @lovethebrowners: “I was very hesitant about online dating, especially a free dating app such as “Tinder”. After I was on the app for 4 days, I met Jason who was only on it for 8 days. We were each other’s first date after being on the app. We decided to meet in person & I was very hesitant & nervous. Once I saw him for the very first time, I was smitten right away.
He was FINE😜, a gentleman, great conversationalist, funny, down to earth & had a family history very similar to mine. After our first date, the very next day he asked me out again & I said “Yes”! He then told me that he wanted to see me everyday after. This is when I knew he was THE ONE. He really courted me & pursued what he wanted & I fell in love with him on the 2nd of even knowing him. On Christmas Eve of 2016 (only 4 months after meeting) he proposed. Of course I cried, I was very surprised & I said “Yes”! Just 4 months after the intimate proposal we said “I DO” on April 15, 2017. I said “I DO” because Jason showed me love from our very first date & the love grew rapidly & consistently as time progressed. His actions spoke volumes & I knew he was ready for such a life changing commitment. God blessed me with the man of my dreams & now we are living Happily Ever After❤️🖤
So, one of my favorite shows #QueenSugar is coming back and I can’t wait! @Ava really does a good job of tying in some important lessons, from a family AND business perspective:
1. Don’t give up your assets. Those Landry’s are making it hard for the Borderlon’s to keep and capitalize on their land. But in the end I know it will be worth it.
2. Create your own enterprise: when all the doors are closed (I.e. the sugar mill) be a boss and create your own lane!
3. Get creative with how you plan to reach your goals: when the Landry’s put a stop to the loan processes, Charlie figured, if you can’t beat them join them. I love that she is keeping the end goal in mind of taking over though.
It gets me so excited to see #blackexcellence , #legacybuilding and #reallife pulled together so seamlessly. Do y’all watch it? 🙌🏾
This is pretty surreal- the pilot for @cufftheseries is an official selection for the New York Television Festival! Much love to the creator, my brother @kwable for the vision! Thanks so much for believing in me to take on the lead role- I’m still in disbelief! Huge shouts to the director @lpshanet, and the DP, @craigmelville, executive producer @alanceppos, and many more to name who’ve contributed to make this possible. Cast/crew- y’all are amazing! Be on the lookout folks!
So.......yesterday my niece graduated with honors from HS in ATL and is off to Howard in the Fall. This morning her oldest brother graduated with honors from Harvard and is off to Microsoft in the Fall. As you can imagine, my mom is in tears, my heart is bursting, and my sister is exhausted! God has been GREAT to this family. WON’T HE DO IT!! #proudauntiemoment#blackgirlmagic#blackboyjoy
So apparently, the imagination imitates the creation of the SPIRIT.
Ok i'll walk you through this moment:
Another departure from another location
Walking around trying to commit EVERYTHING to memory
Walking with my 2 compadres
Banana tree spotted
Her leaves feel very gentle against my skin
Slight breeze blows
