I apologize for the delay on this post but this is one that I have been wanting to share for the last week. I know we have been seeing lots of posts about the tourists dying in Dominican Republic and the speculation around the causes. And while the intrigue is going to be a lifetime movie (or true crime documentary), there is another pressing situation that has been going virtually under the radar for the last few months.
So here is a post with all that I know about the massacre in the Sudan. I was able to have lunch with one of my coworker/sisterfriends to give me more insight into the crisis. I felt so blessed for her willingness to do the emotional work, as she is a Sudanese immigrant and her mother is actually there now.

I have been really excited and in love with my morning routine for the last few weeks.
For those that know me (or have read some of my recent blog posts), I have been on a whole life affirming journey. As I am working on my next upcoming chapter (more coming — stay tuned), I have realized that I need to be more diligent and deliberate in how I spend my time and reach my goals.

So as many of you know Jai and I are in a long distance relationship (for now). We do everything we can to keep it together from love letters to long trips. We have gotten very creative over the last year and a half.
One of my favorite things we do is Facetime date night.
We have watched everything from Power when it is on (I am team Tasha), the Wire (it is definitely worth a rewatch), and a zillion movies. I love doing my face and getting all glam. The smile I get when she answers and sees me for the first time makes me feel warm and happy. I swear every time it is like the first time.
So last night, it was my time to pick the movie of the week.
I selected an oldie but a goodie, Glenn Close’s tour de force portrayal of Alex Foster in Fatal Attraction.

Jesus be a fence… around me and my da– doggone desk.
I was having a great week at work. Feeling accomplished. Being a team player. Getting compliments on how great my makeup looks today from a legit celebrity makeup artist. Living my best 9 to 5 life…. until about 126 minutes ago.
The devil tried to get busy and I had to shoot the most “PER OUR LAST CONVERSATION HOE” email that I have ever sent in my life… so far. Continue reading Per our last conversation… →
