Black Lives Matter

The past few weeks have been difficult. I don’t know that I really have my thoughts together yet, but here’s the best I can give. Growing up, I was a sheltered, only girl, PK with a very protective family. Needless to say, those rose-colored glasses were BIG. When I moved away at 19 l, I […]

5 Years a Richburg + A Year in DC

I think I start every blog by saying how bad I am at writing consistently. This is why I’ve never really kept a journal. It would basically be an utter waste of my time. Lol. At any rate, I think this should be expected by now. So let’s update on my life, and check back […]

Five Years

Sometimes I still can’t believe that I had brain cancer. My last surgery was 5 years ago today. The upside about hard times is that we learn how strong we are, who is there for us, what’s important in life, what isn’t, & most importantly, how great & how faithful God is. While I’m still […]

Just writing

Geeze. The last time I wrote here was exactly a year ago! (The last post was an Instagram post, not a blog.) And, coincidentally, the last time I wrote, Al was also out of town. I guess around this time last year, my website expired and I wanted to change the platform. I really hate tumblr. […]

Alvin is Almost Here!

I had my last OBGYN appointment today. To no surprise, I still have not started to dilate. I am 38 weeks and 5 days, and the c-section is scheduled Thursday evening. I’m low-key pissed that the c-section is so late, because that is an incredibly long time to go without eating. The nurse said I […]
