March Madness

April 13, 2017

MARCH MADNESS

So much took place in March and I am not even sure where to start.  March was jammed pack with trips, events, and  work.  I began to feel overwhelmed with all that was taking place.  I felt as if I was being pulled in every direction and had no real time to take it all in. I had a list and I was checking it twice, making sure I showed up to events I RSVP’d for...on time(I despise being late).

 

I took a trip to Charleston, SC for the weekend- a quick getaway to reset.  I know what you are thinking:  “She’s from that area. How is that a vacation?” This trip was very different from the typical Charleston trip.  I decided to be a tourist this time: staying on the waterfront, eating downtown, walking around the market, eating gelato, and taking pics (which I accidentally deleted, story of my life). I was actually able to take in the true essence of the city.  While there I visited Mother Emmanuel in order to pay my respects.  I can truly say this was the highlight of the trip. When I visited the church I became so overwhelmed.  I mean here I was standing in front of a church where I worshiped as a child which was not a memorial for nine lives that were taken a so senselessly.  I stood there in complete disbelief.  My heart goes out to the families and the community which are still healing.

 

I attended a few birthday parties for friends and also baby showers for co-workers in March, all which were days apart.  Two baby showers were on the same day...INSANE!!!  I had no idea how popular March was for events.  Not even did I attend baby showers, I even hosted one for a coworker.  I am a type A personality and don’t handle stress very well. I like to be in total control, have a plan, and stick with it. In my mind,  I am Olivia Pope (minus the scandalous behavior).  I believe I can fix and handle anything.  Boy, was I wrong.  I didn’t know how detailed a baby shower can be when the parents  are not revealing the gender until the baby is born.  However, the event went off without a hitch.  I did get some help from coworkers and the mother to be was very happy.  #babySuttonisontheway!!!

 

At the very end of March, I visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. with my family.  After the self-guided tour, I left with mixed emotions.  First, it was a great,  yet humbling experience to see all the artifacts that were collected over the years.  They told a powerful story.  On the other hand, I was a little heartbroken to see what our race endured so that we could be afforded the opportunities we have today, some of which we take for granted.   I am proud to be an African American. We have been through tough times, and yet we have prevailed!! Since returning, I have been doing my own research to become well versed in our history.  I hope everyone takes the time to visit.   I promise it is worth the crowd and long lines. ☺  

 

 

 I wish I took more pictures, which is definitely something I am realizing important to blogging.  Thank you for your continued support as we GROW and GLOW together!!!  I am looking forward to the spring and all the things yet to come in 2017!  Happy Spring.

 

With love,

Krissy
