Pre-end of 2019 recap

‪Happy holidays from me and my fam in South Carolina! We were all under one roof today. ‬ ‪Last Christmas, I was in Alaska, homesick AF.

Parting gifts 🎁

Three days before I left Alaska, this sweet faced baby girl entered the world. It was such an emotional birth for me because I’d known mom almost a month at that point. Yall know I cried my eyes out when she got here. By the way, Mom handmade the #qaspeq (shirt) and boots (mink furContinue reading “Parting gifts 🎁”

My first Bethel Baby!

Returning as a changed woman

I haven’t posted on here in months. A lot has changed. Some great, some bittersweet. All of it necessary though. I went to St. Thomas for Carnival and felt invigorated, only to return to a crumbling relationship; the end of which made me want to go right back on vacation. I immediately contacted the travelContinue reading “Returning as a changed woman”
