Merry Christmas Eve! Just a few weeks ago, My husband, Kenny DeShields, and I hosted the 1st Delmar United Friendsgiving – a gathering of residents, business owners, ministry and civic leaders from both sides of the historically divided #DelmarDivide to share a meal and discuss ways to impact our community. It was more than what we could’ve dreamed or imagined!
Special thanks to Armand Buford for capturing our heart and vision with beautiful visual storytelling.
Please share with your family and friends and let’s keep the conversation going.

So fellas, I couldn’t leave you out of this style challenge, so I drafted my hubby, who’s also a music artist to participated. Here’s how we took 9 items and styled them for stage options! Outfit deets below.
It’s literally been forever since I posted a blog. A year ago this past September to be exact. I think a combination of lack of creativity and time are the culprits, but I never stopped thinking about this blog. I’m almost finished reading a book called the The Artisan Soul, by Erwin McManus and it’s sufficiently set my creative soul on fire! So much so that I had to return to one of my loves, this blog, and talk about one of my favorite topics, fashion.
If you follow my instagram posts, you should be aware that I’m pregnant with baby boy number three (pray for your girl 😂)!
Honestly I love having boys. Heck, I don’t know any different. So as a veteran, I’m not freaking out… well that much!
One of the things I’ve done differently this time around, since it’s my last pregnancy, was enlist the help of a personal trainer. I really wanted to continue to grow in my fitness journey and didn’t want to slow down momentum just because I was pregnant. If Serena Williams can win a grand slam six months pregnant, I can definitely have the fittest pregnancy of my life.
Thank you Jesus that I’m connected with an amazing trainer who has helped me so much. I’m eating clean and training with her twice a week, and I’ve never felt better. At 30 weeks, I have lost a total of 19 inches all over my body while growing baby. I have not experienced pregnancy edema (yet), most of my clothes still fit, and I feel really good! It’s been a great decision.
Although I feel really good, I’m at the stage where I barely want to put on clothes 😂. However, as a working mom I don’t have that luxury. I’ve got a little less than 10 weeks left, so I’ve challenged myself to “stay fine down to the line.” 😂😂😂😂 That’s something my husband would say or this one, “stay fine even with 9… weeks to go”.I’m also taking the minimalist approach to the challenge. Unless you have an endless supply of maternity clothes, most mommas-to-be are limited to the number of items they fit comfortably in the last trimester. So I’ve styled 25 outfits with 9 items of clothing + 1 scarf.
Do you wish you had more money? More social media followers? A bigger house? A nicer wardrobe? We all wish we had more stuff, but what would life look like if we were actually grateful for what we already have?
