#AboutLastNight

Standard


What a refreshing and lovely weekend! It was jam packed fun in Connecticut celebrating the marriage between my friends Lauren and Brooke. The ceremony was beautiful with Lauren’s father officiating the momentous occasion, quoting scripture and Ghostface Killah. The love was palpable, the food delicious, the tunes fantastic, and new friends were made over the course of the weekend.

A low key rehearsal dinner under the stars and twinkle lights Friday night, allowed us to see the gals one last time before tying the knot. I got to meet the brides’ families and college/childhood friends and trade stories about how we all ended up at the event together.

Apple picking, petting zoo, corn maze and a hayride were the pre-wedding activities I did with Ash Lee and Julia at March Farm. (A check off my bucket list. Woohoo!)

Since I still have limited storage over in my WordPress media, (grumble grumble) you should peep my Instagram feed on the left side of the screen for pics from the weekend!

This week’s #AboutLastNight recaps the last two Christmas shindigs I was able to attend, the Rising Circle Theatre Collective’s Holiday Party and Bloo and Morgan’s “Ratchet” Christmas party. I sprinkled in a few photos of New York City in its Christmas splendor downtown and in Morningside Heights,as well. 3 days to Christmas!!!

Hey all!

Happy Monday! This week’s #AboutLastNight post features pics from my apartment’s annual “Christmas in Harlem” party. Willow and I slaved in the kitchen and living room all day getting the apartment in festive, good time shape. I believe we succeeded! The drinks were flowing, all of the food was gobbled up and there was laughter and conversation all night long. I didn’t take as many pictures this year seeing as how my phone also played the role of DJ all night long. Hopefully, the ones above gave an accurate snapshot of the holiday cheer!

Ciao 😊

 

 

 

 

2014: The Year of “See Ya Later’s” (Updated 12/15/14)

Gallery

2014

As with each year, brought with it a myriad of new opportunities, new friends and new memories, but it also brought a whole bunch of going away parties and tears too. This year I have had to say “See Ya Later” to my two rocks: Cynthia and Morgan, in the SAME MONTH, (you can read about that here), my main girls Jassmine and Nia, new friend Krystina, and Michelle (but she came back). These girls each hold special places in my heart and my life. And I take comfort in the fact that it is indeed a “See Ya Later” and not a “goodbye.”

Below are a few snapshots of the fun we got into in the city or all around the country this year.

*edit: Since publishing this post last week, I’ve had to say “See Ya Later” to another friend. Willow is on her way to Africa once again 😦

Grand total of “See Ya Later’s”: 6

Friends who have returned: 1

The feeling of love I have for them all: Priceless

Ciao 🙂

#AboutLastNight (Thanksgiving Edition)

Standard

I love the holidays because it allows you the chance to recognize your blessings. The time to reflect on all that has happened over the last year, and who was with you, to hold your hand, cheer you on, and make you laugh along the way. I was not able to spend Thanksgiving with my blood relatives this year, but spending it with my New York “framily” was just as sweet. Thankful to have friends who gladly opened their door to guests this year. The food was AH-mazing, but the fellowship with old and new friends alike was great! Thanksgiving, once again, opened my eyes to all that has shaped me this year, and it has not been too shabby.

Ciao 🙂

A new month! A new week! A Monday recap of all things fun from the weekend. Since I’m still catching up on blogs that went un-seen last month, this edition of #AboutLastNight features photos not only from Halloween fun, but birthday celebrations for Jason the week before.

I had a TON of fun this weekend, celebrating with friends and family alike. Cynthia’s last hurrah in town was Friday, before flying back to St. Thomas, taking in a Broadway show Saturday afternoon, and celebrating my cousin Lauren’s 25th birthday Saturday night. Good times, slightly exhausting, but fun nonetheless. We’re only young once, right? Enjoy the photo diary below, to get a feel for my weekend.

Ciao 🙂
