Grateful for life…

Monday morning, February 17, 2020, I had a coffee date with Death. I’m glad I got to crawl away.   I was driving back from a great weekend trip to Denver, still in awe of Garden of the Gods, and excited to book my next stay in the Mile High City. Shortly after I crossedContinue reading “Grateful for life…”

‪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.

My first Bethel Baby!

(written 3/22/2019) I got off work near midnight last night, but decided to check if anyone was in active labor before I left. There was! So I went to introduce myself and see if she needed some support. Things were off to a slow start but progressed rapidly in the wee hours of the morning.Continue reading “My first Bethel Baby!”

Officially in countdown mode

It’s almost 1:30 in the morning and here I am, typing this up. My work schedule has changed to evening shift, including Saturday. Now anyone who’s worked with me knows how much I loathe those hours.

Four weeks in..

I’ve been in Alaska almost a month now. Some days it feels like much longer than that. It has been both refreshing and stifling being up here. I’m starting to memorize faces, names, and people’s quirks. I now have two roommates, and thank you Muva Gawd we all get along. They work opposite shifts andContinue reading “Four weeks in..”

NAK Exchange Day!

(Written Sunday April 22, 2018) Bruuhhhh yesterday was SO DOPE!!! Mr. Huff’s Serene Self Portrait class was very euphoric, as we began with ten minutes of guided meditation. He usually guides meditation when it’s just the two of us so experiencing it with a group of people made me extra proud. I’ve never painted aContinue reading “NAK Exchange Day!”

Shoulda got the Zoom Kobe 4’s 🤷🏽‍♀️

(For context regarding the title of this post, watch this. 😩😂🏀) Thursday evening, while heading to the back porch to relax with Mr. Huff, I missed two steps, twisted my ankle, and landed on my back like a bug. 😫🙄🦗🐜I was terrified it was broken, and with my job ending soon, I lay there panickingContinue reading “Shoulda got the Zoom Kobe 4’s 🤷🏽‍♀️”
