Showered with Love

Hey Everyone! I know it’s been awhile but I never knew how hard it would be to grow a human and work two jobs all while maintaining your peace of mind. I hope you enjoyed thanksgiving as much as Baby J and I did. We spent time with our family, ate everything within reach, consumed non-alcoholic beverages and slept as much as we could. Now I am counting down the days to Christmas, New Year’s and the day I can serve Baby J her eviction notice, lol. Or maybe it’s more like when she’ll be ready to make her grand entrance into the world.

A few weeks ago I was honored to have an amazing baby shower at my full-time job which was hosted by my co-workers. It was more than I expected and I’m so happy to work with a team of people who thought so highly of me and who puts up with my crazy on a day-to-day basis. A week thereafter, my Mom, best friend Aisha and two of my Sorors Setor and Eboni (aka Can’t Stop and Won’t Stop) hosted a baby shower for my family and friends. I’m so grateful to each and every person who planned, cooked, decorated, helped with setting up, cleaned up, made attended, made me look FAB and even those who were unable to be present but sent a gift. I’m overwhelmed by the caring and loving village of people who have been supportive of me during my pregnancy. It makes me emotional every time I think about how blessed I am!

Here are some pictures from the past events in case you were unable to attend. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Shout out to my photographers, my brother Julien and my cuzzo, Erika! Until next time……
