Day after day pretty much the same routine with rarely a thought about being a black woman married to a white man raising bi-racial children. The other day someone approached my family with a comment and it sparked me to write this open letter to my children that they are too young to understand now, but one day will appreciate from their black mother married to their white father.
Inspired by my recent trip to Georgia, I thought nothing was more appropriate than a peach cocktail with a little whiskey to bring in that southern kick. Whether you are a bulldogs fan or falcon fan, this sweet bourbon peach lemonade cocktail will refresh anyone no matter the game.

I can’t believe it’s football season again! Like, where did the time even go?! My husband, Cameron has begun the dance that he does every time this year which I lovingly call the “MLB/NFL shuffle”. He is constantly with the remote switching back and forth from the Astros game to the Texans pre-season game. This my friends is my signal that Thursdays-Sundays will now be consumed with FOOTBALL! In 7.5 years of marriage I have learned to get less annoyed by this time of the year and embrace it my own way. So I decided to share the love for those of you whose significant other will have pigskin on the brain for the next 7 months with this little guide to embracing the season and making it your own.
I have a friend named Paula who goes on girl’s trips like it’s her job! I find myself scrolling through her pics on social media often looking at all the fun they are having. Paula’s girl’s trip crew coordinate outfits when they go out and always kick off their trips with a matching shirt and matching PJ’s. One day I was looking at pictures of their recent trip to Miami and said to myself “why don’t I do that instead of living vicariously through Paula?!” And here we are, summer is just about over and I will have 3 girls trips under my belt! My cousin recently visited to Houston from Atlanta and made the mistake of telling my sister and I to “come visit anytime”. My sister and I got our wheels turning and after 4 enthusiastic yes’s from our girlfriends we booked our flight and were Atlanta bound.
