This past weekend I had the honor of speaking on a panel in DC at The Momference aka Wakanda for black moms. As a blogger/influencer that attends lots of events, there is a huge void in events with black mothers in mind. I’m usually one of a handful of women of color. This Black Mom Magic experience is the brainchild of DMV area PR specialist Simona Noce and Nikki Osei-Barrett. I’m still on a high one from this one-day event. It was pure magic, almost like a dream. To walk in a room of over 250 black moms (and a few dads) that looked like me and could relate to me, it was magical. I left feeling inspired celebrated and empowered. Check out a few of the beautiful photos from The Momference by Iris Manning.
Being a mother is hard work. The job doesn’t come with a manual or instructions. You work over a hundred hours a week with no pay. Somehow we all manage to keep our kids alive and happy every day. When I think of all that we do for our families, I know there is a God that gave us superpowers because how else could we do this? This year I wanted to highlight some of my mom friends that are pursuing their dreams and crushing goals all while taking care of their children. They’ve also have been kind enough to share their number one tip for pursuing their dreams while taking care of their children.
I’m still in organization mode. I guess you have to be in forever organized mode if you want to keep your house in order. I recently announced that I’ll be hitting the road with Dr. Miracle’s this summer at Walmarts around the country. Make sure you’re following to see where I’ll be next. With that being said, Mister will be on his own and we know how men are about finding kids clothes. I’ve been slowly purging and organizing the girls’ drawers and closets. Using tips from my girl Mimi from Unlikely Martha, I got the girls dresser drawers together.

Winter has been acting like that ex that won’t leave you alone. Just when you think it’s over, he shows up again. Even though the temperature doesn’t always feel like spring, the spring showers have been consistent. Rainy days can really affect your mood. I’m excited to share my new pieces from Anuschka, a premium brand of hand-painted accessories, that gives me a little sunshine on a rainy day.
