I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat you would know that I was knee deep in painting my kitchen cabinets. I started on Saturday morning and then I was fired by Mister after I slaved for 3 days. Since are cabinets are brand new, I agreed that we needed a professional to finish them up. Soon as I got my walking papers, I hit the streets looking for Memorial Day sales. Since my life has been crazy for the last couple of days, I thought I would share a few more photos from our recent Creative Soul shoot wearing Suakoko Betty.

Would you believe me if I told you I wasn’t sure if I ever wanted kids? I was never a “kid” kinda woman. I was still on the fence about kids even after I hit 30. Maybe it was because I saw how my mom struggled and thought it wasn’t worth it. Maybe it was because I heard were so many horror stories of being a teen mom I was turned off. Or was I just scared. Would I be a good mom? Would I be able to provide for them. Fast forward ten years, I don’t know what my life would be like without my girls. I’m so excited that I can include my baby dolls in what I’m passionate about. I’m also grateful that brands like Suakoko Betty and Creative Soul Photography help me capture beautiful moments with my girls.
