I haven't had much luck finding blogs from other mixed race people documenting their journey to locdom, so I figured I'd put myself out there for anyone else's benefit. It's also a forum for opinions on what's happening on (and sometimes in) my head. Keep up with my journey- my hair and my life. There will be random musings as well, as things inspire me.
I am on a journey -like you, I'm sure. A personal journey, a spiritual journey. A journey about passions, growth, and living. I don't have a good memory, but I value my experiences. It's very strange when you realize that you are being shaped constantly, but ultimately only remember some of the reasons why you are the person you're becoming. I find that when things resonate within me, writing about them helps me to better develop my opinions about them, and to remember them. Sometimes, it's the simple act of looking back and reminding myself where I've been that is all I need to move forward with confidence. That's why I write. Thank you for joining me.
We took another trip to Aheville, this time with a couple of friends. The main reason was to see the Rusko show (which was uh-mazing!), but we also toured Biltmore (my second time, their first), ate at LAB (where the menu was completely different, but the food and beer still tasty), and visited the NC Arboretum. As always, we had a great time. I love taking trips with my husband!
the creamery at Biltmore Village. I haven't had an ice cream cone in years!
these flowers were at the NC arboretum. You can't really tell, but the Coralish pink ones glittered. How do flowers get metallic in them? Crazy beautiful.
these begonias were HUGE!
iced chai and a St. Peters porter at a fantastic restaurant near the hotel. (Sunny something....)
