My 40th birthday was over the weekend and I’m still basking in the glow over celebrating my life with friends and family.

Threw a party. People came. We ate the damn cake. My momma and other family Skyped into the party. I loved it all.

Life at 39 was so great & I have no complaints at all. Now, I’m looking forward to seeing what life on the other side of 40 has in store. Hopefully much more of the good stuff!

My favorite highlights from the weekend are dancing all night long to Osunlade & Moodymann DJ sets in a dark location with other black bodies. Having my momma call to sing happy birthday & retelling the story of my birth (that story always makes me feel good).
