Mellow Yellow

Happy Friday Divas & Divamoms,

Are you looking forward to the weekend? I'm hoping for a beach day. I'm trying to work through my grief in a healthy manner. When I'm stressed or in need of a place where I can feel God's presence the beach is my first choice. Today I had lunch with two of my sorority sisters. It was a pleasant outing and a wonderful distraction from all that I'm dealing with. As I was prepping the photos for this post a still small voice said, "Sometimes ya just gotta let the sunshine in." So I did.


I am feeling my fro! YES indeed :)
Sunnies: Marshall's

I Got Dressed

Hello divamoms & divas,

I hope that you are excited I’m returning to blogging. I know I am. I want to thank my blogging sister Inez at Style Chic 360 and Rocquelle over at Consider Me Lovely for supporting me and allowing me to bounce ideas off them as I prepare to make a comeback and revise my blog site.

If you haven’t read from my Tweets or Instagram, my Grandmother passed away on the 7th! It has really been difficult because she was the BEST! Not perfect but my Granny and I truly respected and adored her. She was 94 and battled Alzheimer disease. I wrote about it here and here . Please keep me in your prayers.

I did something that I know made her proud as she looks down from heaven on me. I got dressed and went to the grocery store. Yeah, I’ve been looking kinda rough most days. I’m sure everyone understood my blah mood but my mom and Aunt reminded me that my Granny would encourage you to dust yourself off, put on your best garments (and y’all know back then it was the Sunday’s best) and go give the people who wondered if you were faring well a great people watching show.

There are so many lessons she taught me during my visits with her. She’s missed tremendously. What is one memorable lesson your Grandmother taught you?

Earrings: Bealls Outlet
Sunnies & bangles: Thrifted at Goodwill
Tank: Old Navy
Maxi Skirt: Marshalls
Wedges: Charlotte Russe
Note to you: Please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer Association. I pray someday we find a cure. My new challenge is to help other families as they care for a loved one dealing with this dreadful disease.

P. S. Thank you for sticking with me!!
