Thankful Thursday

We had fun with this amazing family taking pictures by the water. This was taken during Memorial Day and that’s how we spent it. The Hicks’ and Ikotun’s came together by the Eastern Shore to visit Pop-Pop, a military veteran who fought in the Vietnam War. We took over the entire Shore city, well not quite but a good portion of it 🙂 It was a day filled with lots of laughter and we couldn’t end the day without taking pictures. This was one of many unforgettable moments we as a family will cherish.


Bethany, our amazing photographer, captured it and hubby helped as well when needed (That’s why you won’t see him in the group shot we took). Check out her Instagram page @bethanyjphotography.

I am very thankful for this family inviting us to come spend a day with them. Everyone enjoyed it including Kizzy who was taught how to throw sea shells back in the water. It was the cutest thing.



Seeing her little tiny hands go up and down in the air as she was throwing the shells. Then, when it fell in the water, she clapped for herself while having a big smile on her face 🙂 Oh! She is too adorable and we love her so much.


Promise enjoyed the peaceful breeze as she slept almost through the entire time. She cried once for feed and that was it. Overall, I am very thankful to have friends that we call family because they made us feel at home.

I’ll let you enjoy the pictures for yourself because it was a day filled with love and laughter. I hope you had a good Memorial Day with your loved ones? What did you do and how did you spend it? Leave a comment below



Thankful Thursday

Hello Family!! It’s Thankful Thursday today and it feels good to be back doing what I love to do which is taking you along the journey I’m riding on 🙂 Hope you didn’t miss me too much. 

Well, just in case you missed the memo, I had a baby girl and she is so adorable. Her name is Promise and she has been doing great since we’ve been home. Family and friends have been over helping me and I would like to use this moment to say a huge “THANK YOU” to all of you that called, texted, stopped by the house, FaceTimed me, and even brought me some delicious meals. I feel so special and I’m blessed to have such a supportive team on my side, so thank you again.

This blog is dedicated to the super moms I have in my life. 32027039-70E6-4091-A33B-996C6DA4A95F

Peter’s Mom blessed us by taking Kizzy on a weekend and she had a blast. I was able to focus on Promise and myself without worrying about Kizzy. These two amazing women have been a great blessing because I can say that I feel refreshed and ready to conquer the world 🙂 


Thank you to my bestie, hubby, who has been extremely supportive keeping the house in order. He is so hardworking and loves his girls unconditionally. Babe, I know you’re outnumbered but we love you so dearly. Thank you for the little things you do in the house without saying a word. Trust me, they never go unnoticed. You are amazing and I love you so very much. 

Anyway, I appreciate all of your love and support during this time. Let’s continue this journey and hope you enjoy the ride with me.
