Meet the Queen

March 20, 2019

Who am I?

If you didn’t read that in the Petey Pablo “Raise Up” voice, then we are not the same.

No, but seriously — Who am I?

I am the Queen. (Ask my kids, they’ll tell ya! 😂)

I am a 30-year old mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I have been married to my husband, for almost 4 years. I have one 12-year-old daughter, and 4 sons, including my step-son — ages 10, 7, 3, and almost 5 months.

PLUS, I own two businesses: NB Design Co — a graphic design agency and Lasting Legacy Brand — a lifestyle clothing brand.

AND, as if that isn’t enough, I work full time as Director of Operations in the transportation industry. That’s right. A lot of people answer to me.

As you can see, I wear a lot of hats. I am a lot of things to a lot of people. Yet all of that ain’t what defines me.

So, who am I? I think it is a question that all mothers know well. Somehow giving birth is that needle in the haystack of our lives that challenges who we are at our core. I am a mother, a wife, a friend, a sister, but so much more. I am an individual.

I love fashion, music, and food. I am a Libra so I absolutely adore luxury. And I can assure you that I am one of the funniest people you will ever encounter. 💅🏾 #Facts

I am loyal to a fault. Even when it’s not always in my best interests. I want to see the world. And I want the world to see me.

Sometimes who I am and those labels I mentioned don’t always see eye-to-eye. My dreams of globetrotting and trendsetting aren’t always what I envision when I have my five children trailing behind me.

But that’s going to change.

I am new to blogging. This is my first post ever. Sharing my stories and my life has been on my heart for a while now. But as you can see, I have PLENTY going on. When I was approached and offered a platform for my voice I was both flattered and nervous.

Who I am?

We are all going to learn that together as I begin walking in MY purpose and sharing MY journey with the world.
