Set it Right Sundays – #1 – Seeking and Capturing Peace

Happy Sunday (and of course more specifically — Happy Mother’s Day).

I was going to write a post about my mother… then I was going to write a post about the debacle I had with Proflowers over Jai’s mother’s flowers… then I was going to write about my own current journey trying to conceive…

Obviously by the title and the picture of me covered in bubbles none of those happened.

Today is all about seeking and capturing peace.

It’s a Take A Village To Live the SRL

Good morning Lovebugs,

I am up bright and early this morning overcome with a sense of gratitude. No this is not a gushy post about my partner, this one is a shout out to all the women in my sister circle that are helping make me better every single day.

For a second, I was going to list them by name but as you read the blog over time, you will get to know many of them so that didn’t seem to be the answer.

I will instead just give you a snippet of my morning and how two of them made an impact in my life from the moment I woke up.

I’m Hungry…

Picture it Sicilly…

Ok I’m not sure why I just had this Golden Girls moment except for the fact that I am becoming delirious. Jai (the boo) and I are trying intermittent fasting… again.[1]

For those that don’t know what intermittent fasting is, here is the rundown as I know [2]

So first things first intermittent fasting is a life change not a diet. [3] . It is basically using your clock, instead of your calories, to set your eating plans and reach your weight loss goals. Sounds good eh? For someone like me that will eat when I am bored I think it will help. For Jai, it will help her be more focused on eating and be one less thing she has to figure out. Win Win right?

Tips to a Big Fun/Small Budget Trip to Turks and Caicos #KKDays

Yes my log in still works… whew.

I know… I know. I have been slacking on my blogging. There have been a lot of new developments in the world according to Kristi that I hope to share with you guys soon.

We just back this weekend from a really relaxing time in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos so I wanted to share some tips.

Turks and Caicos has the reputation of being a very expensive island to visit. We read stories of people having to take out loans for sunscreen and selling plasma to pay for drinks at the bar. While that wasn’t our experience, I can see how that happens.  We did extremely well sticking to our budget but it was definitely a plan.

KREAD: Pat Greene: Her Story by ANONDRA “KAT” WILLIAMS

41locwguhBL Well well well, here’s another one and another one. Yes I am pretending I am a rapper instead of a blogger… and what?

hits b-girl stance

Like most series on this blog, I haven’t written a KRead review in a while. But seeing that today is National Book Day, I decided to get back on the proverbial horse.

This is actually the second book I will be reviewing by Anondra “Kat” Williams. Way back when I read her first offering black girl love. For those who haven’t read it, it is an extremely sensual experience… hmm… that I might have to relive.

Fast forward five years to her newest work, Pat Greene: Her Story. I must admit, this book has been languishing in my Amazon Kindle queue for a while, but I am very happy I finally read it.

Plot Snapshot: The coming of age story of Pat Greene, a black lesbian everywoman, filled with love, loss and a little lust.
