Hello, Weekend!


It’s a long weekend, y’all – and if you can’t get excited over this mere fact, what are you waiting for? I’m getting a head start by finally treating the toes and digits to a much needed pamper & the brows to a well deserved shape-up. Then, we have fun! I’ve already talked enough about the BAM Dance Africa Festival, but know this – you will be missing out on the yummiest of foods (jerk chicken heeeeaven), entertainment, shopping, & just plain ‘ol enjoying the first unofficial start to the summer. So to kick things off….a few links!

“Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don’t want it.  What appears bad manners, an ill temper or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.  You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.”
