Olivia is 20. She was 13 (Amelia is now 13… time is flying) when her mother and I called it quits. It was ugly. I’ve talked about it here before… Therapy. Attempts to heal. Lots of work. More therapy. More attempts to heal. Lots more work. Years later, the effect of dPeep The Rest!
My momma came for a visit recently & I was so very happy to see her, smell her, touch her… Having her in my new home for the first time made the visit extra special. I needed her official stamp of approval that only a mother could give. After she got settled in &Peep The Rest!
Several months ago, I posted about Cousin Dee & her husband, Mato readying themselves for their 1st baby. Well… Mato Jr. is here & he’s awesome! The day he was born was such an emotional rush. Beautiful! We took these photos recently and I swear this is THE laPeep The Rest!

About eight years ago, my oldest daughter, Olivia made this sign for me and since then, I have kept the picture in my office. It serves as a reminder, motivation, & inspiration. She was daddy’s girl. I remember those days well. Life is different now but memories always rPeep The Rest!
Last Saturday, I got to see Amelia dance in her spring recital. She’s been dancing since she’s been a baby & I’m always there to cheer her on. Wait, she’s still a baby, my sweet baby. Watching her on stage was awesome but it wasn’t enough for me watching her fromPeep The Rest!

A few weeks ago, the girls and I carved pumpkins. This is something that I have not done since 1986 (or so). After we picked the perfect pumpkins out, we assigned tasks. Sade was in charge of the designs, Olivia & Amelia were in charge of scrapping out the nasty stuff froPeep The Rest!
While having breakfast with my sweet Boo Boo, she asked me what I was doing today. I told her that I was photographing a wedding. She then asked me "why I am always taking pictures" to which, I replied I "because it's fun & Baba likes to make that paper." Later, she leftPeep The Rest!
Washing Sade’s hair is always a back breaking task that leaves me exhausted. Luckily, we only wash it every three – four weeks when she is between twists. This morning, after I got my mind right, we washed & blew dry her afro in preparation for her appointment to get frPeep The Rest!
