Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday
Saturday our youngest son, al-Malik celebrated his 18th birthday, it was both exciting yet bittersweet. I can still remember the night I gave birth to him, 2 weeks early and all the pain he caused me during delivery. Now, he’s a senior in High School and soon will be leaving the nest…perhaps…maybe…let’s pray on it!
Anywho, hubby and I decided to spend the day together before taking him out to dinner later in the evening. My husband doesn’t usually like to go shopping with me, so it was definitely a treat, he even took these pictures. After all the snow and cold it turned out to be a nice winter Saturday so a sweater and ski vest was all that was needed.
My BFF commented that I looked like I was at a ski resort – I wish it were true because I’ve never been to one. #bucketlist
These are my favorite boots, not just because of the leopard print but because they are very warm so I don’t need to wear socks.

We went to Red Lobster which was Malik’s favorite when he was a little guy, and seeing him across the table now as a big guy was amazing. #blessed

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!
Eighteen years ago today, I gave birth to my 2nd son, al-Malik Glorian Blake and now I sit here wondering – WHERE DID THE TIME GO?????
People would often say, “cherish the moments because they go by fast”. I remember when I just wanted him to sleep through the night…to learn how to walk…to learn how to talk…to learn how to feed himself…to be potty trained…to start school…to get his driver’s license and after all that happened…this is him today ~ an 18 year old mini man!
