When Two Agree

I laid there in my doctor’s office like I had done for my two pregnancies before. I knew the routine: pull up shirt, doctor squirts and rubs gel on stomach (it feels cold), and after a few swipes of the ultrasound transducer, voila … baby! This time, it wasn’t so. With my right hand under…

Going off Script

He looked at me and said, “You and me. Up there. Let’s make this a date night.” “A date night?” I chuckled. Laughing at the idea of how 1) impromptu the whole thing was and 2) we did not travel alone. We were at a church carnival with 4 adults, 1 preteen, 3 teenagers, and…

Seasons

Happy New Year! It’s early morning and the sun is yet to rise. The only light breaking through the darkness in my bedroom is the faint light from my computer screen. It’s me-time. This typically is the only time in the day that belongs to me; the rest of the day is about everyone and…

The Best Decision for My Marriage

“This n***a got me f****d up. I swear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” “What? Wait! Don’t do anything, we’re coming!” My family and I had just gotten off a 22-hour flight from Australia.

At Your Service (Part One)

“… He’s a grown man. More importantly, he has two working hands!” This would have been my attitude seven years ago. “You know what Jasmine, you’ve actually said that to me before” Or “You may not have said it but your face sure did,” I wouldn’t be surprised if seven years ago, my married friends…

The Wedding Day Web

My Little Sister recently shared a post about her wedding day on her blog. (Definitely check it out when you can). It was a great read I would have to say! And even better, it was insightful as she shared the process she went through planning her big day.  My Little Sister didn’t let herself…

Differences Over Dishes

“This is 9-1-1, what is your emergency?” “My husband. Can you send someone over now before I strangle him!” I both live with and love the culprit who time and time again does the very thing that I CAN’T STAND. It irks me and gets me going to the point that the culprit, my husband,…

What Had Happened Was…

It’s Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. The house is finally quiet. I decided to use the time to attempt at writing this post. Key word here … attempt. I launched my blog almost 2 months ago and haven’t been able to sit and write since. I know sad. Good thing is I don’t have writer’s…
