Today I get to celebrate my 55th birthday…the “double nickel.” It’s also my daughter’s birthday, but if she wants to talk about hers, she better start blogging. LOL
It is not lost on me that this is another milestone in my life and I’m very grateful to be able to see this day. Many of my friends didn’t get to see 55 years of age. I may not have everything I’d like to have in this world, but I have to say for the most part, I’m very happy.
I never thought that the best times of my life would be in my 50’s yet here they are. My kids are grown and following their own paths in life. I have a beautiful and smart granddaughter who is so loving, she would melt your heart. A great career (even though I’m ready for something new), I’m a float lieutenant in thee best all-female Mardi Gras Krewe in all of New Orleans, and my partner for life is the most amazing man. He is the perfect man for me in every way.
I’ve always been a late bloomer so, I guess this puts me right on schedule.
I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my life. I’m going to try to make it as interesting as humanly possible. Who knows, I may still be blogging and will be able to tell you all about it.
This year will be my 10th year blogiversary…never thought I’d make that one…yet here I am. See y’all on the flip side…I’m going to celebrate with NOLA and all the people in town for the Essence Fest. Should be interesting…and crowded.
My Stanka Doodle recently turned 3 years old and I really don’t know where the time is going. She is getting so big so fast…I can’t keep up. This year we had her party at Chuck E. Cheese and my goodness…I went through sensory overload! They had so many people in that place. And it seems like you need to acquire a zillion tickets to get something half way decent over the counter. We still had an awesome time though. I can’t wait until her fifth birthday, we’re taking her to Disney World to celebrate.
That’s the fun part of having a grandkid…all the fun, none of the work.
Happy Birthday Stanka! We love you to the moon and beyond!
Team Stanka Doodle. She was mad at us though.
My girls! Yellow Jacket and Stanka Doodle
My little fashionista!
Grandbaby and nephew!
The love of my life.
Soooo, today I received a notification that I’ve been blogging for 9 years now.
When I began blogging I had no intention of hanging around this long. I just wanted a place to air out the voices in my head.
I’ve met some fabulous people in the blogging world.Sadly, most of them no longer blog and I miss tuning into their blog posts. But I totally get how they gave up the ghost and put it away. I’ve thought about doing it many times.

I can’t lie, it’s been a “struggle bus ride” for the last few years. Blogging has become the dinosaur of social media. Everything is so fast paced today that no one really wants to read a bunch of paragraphs.
Give them a video, a bunch of pictures and a few tweets and they are good to go.
I don’t think I’ll ever totally give up this space though. I like having a quiet spot to call my own to air those voices out. I probably won’t have much of a following, but that’s fine with me.
I never did have a bunch of people over here and it made those who did tune in, more special to me.
I’ll be back.
And I’m going old-school…blogging about whatever crosses my mind.
HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY TO ME!!
Thanks for being here.
