Good Morning...

It's 8:43am on a Friday morning and I have been up since about 6am. Normally I would not be so happy about this but I am starting to adjust to this limited sleep schedule as my body gets used to this medication. I actually got a full night of sleep last night which doesn't happen often and I'm going to the movies today for the second time this week :)

Just wanted to put a little blog up today about the importance of appreciating every moment.. the good the bad and the in between. Life knows how to throw some curve balls which can leave us second guessing a lot of things but truth is those are times we usually learn the most. If every moment in life went exactly how we expected it to, how boring would that be? We don't want to live like the Stepford Wives movies so stop wishing for 'perfect' or 'normal' because the crazy is normal and the lessons we learn are perfect, as long as we take the time to pay attention...

I always tell people think outside of your box and for the past year have really tried to follow my own advise. I've hit stages and spoke to crowds I'd never would have dreamed of before, I went on camping retreats, caught my first fish and shrimp ever (and ate some!), started a vlog series, used as many random moments to create memories with my kids and more. Life isn't about fitting some ideal image or standard.. it's about living. It's about doing things to better your life and those lives around you.

So keep a smile on your face, dance to every good beat you hear, sing to every song you know and learn how to hit back those curve balls we get in life because once you master those tricky throws, amazing things can head your way!

My Mother's Day Nightmare

May 13, 2018.. Mother's Day.

I worked an event.. I am always working.. helping coordinate a yearly brunch for my friend Chef X I was gone from about 8am until we got home about 6pm. I had been in communication with the two kids still at home throughout the day. They are 14 and 15.. generally mature and great at keeping in touch with me. Until 7pm that evening. Then 2 and a half hours went by where we had absolutely no idea where my daughter was. 14 years old and it was all silence. More than a few minutes is already scary, this was unlike ever before.

I am a mother to five, yes five, amazing kids. They are far from perfect, but I was far from a perfect parent, we managed. Being in the arts and entertainment industry there is sometimes a fine line between what is private and what I talk about. Most of the time though I know I am not alone. I know there are other moms, parents, loved ones who are experiencing some of the things I go through and talking about it helps. It helps me ge…

Turning 21, Disney and a Girls Trip We Won't Forget

I just got back from a five day vacation to Orlando... While there is so much about this trip we will keep to ourselves because it was all so special I did want to briefly talk about it as a whole.

About six months ago my best friend in Virginia hit me up. Her oldest daughter was turning 21 in July and she really wanted to do something special for her. My oldest had just turned 21, who also happens to be her Goddaughter, and our girls had known each other since birth as we were there for the birth of each other's firstborns. Her idea was to come down to Orlando, stay at a nice resort or hotel and have the four of us hang out a few days at the pool, maybe a bar or two and hit up an amusement park.

This sounded amazing and it was before the car accident my youngest was in, as well as a few other things to recently hit our family. When the accident happened she asked me if we should cancel. I asked her please not to, I knew by the time it came around I was really going to need a few …

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…
