WEDDING GUEST AT MY OWN #ROYALWEDDING IN AUSTIN

Image
A few weekends ago, I attended a wedding in Austin, which co-incidentally was the same weekend as the #RoyalWedding of the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meaghan so I just told myself that was where I was going...LOL! It was an evening ceremony that had the actual wedding nuptuals take place outdoors a little earlier while the reception held indoors in a quaint but modern restaurant (turned event hall) complete with a 3 course meal, live band and my favourite part, an open bar.

WHEN AN EX STILL HAS YOUR HEART

Image
A friend of mine and I were talking about this recently largely because I was (and still am) convinced that his long term ex girlfriend still controls a large portion of his heart and this is making it extremely difficult for any other girl have the chance at a successful relationship with him without feeling uneasy about how much of a connection still exists between him and his ex. He was adamant about my opinion, claiming that she had no such hold on him any longer and went ahead to let me know that they had only just re-assured each-other of their now good friendship (insert rolling eyes emoji here).

THE 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF MY BROTHER'S DEATH (27/5/2018): WHERE MY MOM IS EMOTIONALLY

Image
The 27th of May is celebrated as Children's Day nationwide in Nigeria with lots of activities held for the kids at eateries, parks and other fun spots. While the day is always a good time for the children and their families, it has come to be a sober one for mine as we reflect on the loss of my brother 2 years ago, who passed away from complications of sickle cell disease. This year, the 27th fell on a Sunday and it was nice to go to church and spend the day praying and giving thanks to God for his life on earth and the times we all spent together. On this day, I especially worry for my mom's emotional state because as I have previously mentioned, she was the one with him at the exact moment he passed and had been the one caring for him all of his life.
