Visiting Familiar and Unfamiliar Places (Part IV)


🚗 Road-trips are usually pretty interesting!  I guess the more people you have in the car, the more interesting it may be. I’ve been on road-trips to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Nevada , Mexico, and other parts of Socal and now Ohio. I was pretty sleepy before we got on the road, but I didn’t sleep too much. I am sure, one of the main reasons I didn’t sleep much is because I decided to drink an energy drink when we first got on the road. On the trip up we laughed, enjoyed different types of music, and napped in between. In total it took us about 9 hours total to get to Ohio. We made more than a few stops for one thing or another, on the drive. We arrived to Cincinnati Ohio Thursday evening got to our hotel rooms, got ready for dinner and we went into town. We ended up settling on a restaurant, I’ve never heard before. It was called Cheddar’s.


Cheddar's Entrance


Honestly they didn’t seem to have much on the menu that I could actually eat . The best thing I ate at Cheddar’s was the steamed broccoli! Me & my family enjoyed one another talking, laughing, taking pictures, and just spending time together . It is so nice to spend time with family and put electronic devices away !!!! Connecting with one another in person face to face is priceless !

This beautiful waterfall was at the entrance of Cheddar’s.


Friday seemed to end as quickly as it started ! Is it just me or do days seem to go by faster when on vacation? Friday morning, we got up and went to breakfast at a place called Bob Evans, ever heard of it ? (Click on name for more info) If you are in Ohio it’s a must eat ! Their biscuits were really good ! The food was delicious, better than cheddar’s because there was more options for me ! I love breakfast food ! 🥞


After a delicious breakfast at Bob Evans we traveled to one of the outlets to shop and do some looking around !


The next couple of hours passed by quickly and before we knew it, it was time for the family meet and greet ! This was a fun time for me , I got to reconnect with family I haven’t seen in years and connect with family members I don’t remember ever meeting. We all ate, prayed, laughed and talked ! It was a fun night and by the end of it, I was tired but I still had homework to do. YAY FOR SUMMER CLASSES !!!!  Once I was back at the hotel room,  I believe I watched a little bit of one of my favorite movies of all time, The Lord of  The Rings. I think it was the fellowship of the ring, but I can’t be 100% sure, I was so tired that night.  All I remember seeing is a few of the main characters! As I’m sure you have realized reading this, I was watching a movie and worried about sleep, so yeah I didn’t spend much time on  my homework that night.


Saturday finally arrived and it was the day of  THE FAMILY REUNION !

We arrived at the family reunion in the afternoon and the weather seemed to be  getting pretty hot ! We ate, we took pictures, we laughed, and most importantly we talked and enjoyed one another’s company ! As the day progressed in Ohio, the temperature seemed to cool down enough for me to sit outside, talk with family, and enjoy the weather. I had a good time and laughed a lot on this whole trip! It was good that I got the opportunity to make it to the reunion this year to spend time with family! I was nervous yet thankful to be able to, not only connect with  family  but talk about my book Words Are Art: See The World Through My Eyes .


I have learned while on this journey of being a writer, an author, my work isn’t for everyone and everyone isn’t going to connect with it or even like it. At first this was a struggle to accept, I wanted everyone to like my work. But I realized we are all individuals, we all have our own struggles, our own journey and our own taste of what we like and what we don’t like.


With that being said, I would like to take a moment and  say how thankful I am for all the people with open hearts and open minds, who  purchased & read Words Are Art. When Words Are Art: See The World Through My Eyes was first released I was nervous because I released some of my journey to others. I was afraid of what others may say about some of the intense writings that I decided to put into this book. At first I was pretty self-conscious about it, then as time moved on my goal for releasing something like Words Are Art seemed clearer, inspire & motivate.

I hoped that through my pain, my hurt, my loss, my misery, my depression, and even my discovery of new beautiful things, others could find a way to know that if they were going through some of the same feelings/things they were not alone. Then for others who weren’t going through it, it would give them a new outlook on those things, so they can become more informed.


Releasing Words Are Art let others  get a glimpse into how I see the world, and some of my experiences good and bad. I am so grateful I was able to write this book and for all the people who have told me how inspiring Words Are Art was for them. I hope that my upcoming books can be inspiring, motivating, and so much MORE.

Visiting Familiar and Unfamiliar Places (Part III)

Atlanta Ferris Wheel

❤️ Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week. I am not 100% sure why, but here are a few reasons why I think I may adore Wednesdays 😍 : I was born on a Wednesday, I like how Wednesday is spelled & I like how it looks written down or typed out, and I like that it’s the middle of the week. I enjoy when I get to go on adventures, start a new project, see a new movie or just do something out of the ordinary on Wednesdays ! Wednesdays are just ahhhhh 😍 !


Well last Wednesday (7/19/17) was no different . I got to  spend time with family & explore 2 familiar/unfamiliar locations. First off, I tried to sleep in for as long as I could, seeing as I’m sure I stayed up until 4 a.m. that morning. I’m noticing a trend, my sleep schedule has been so crappy while being on vacation with my family. Do any of you tend to sleep less while on vacation? Lack of adequate sleep sure does seem to catch up with me quick. After finally waking up and getting ready I headed over to spend time with……. drum roll please……….🥁

✨my Grammy aka Grandma! ✨ If you read part ll of this series you already saw a picture of my beautiful grandmother. I spent time talking and just bonding with my Grammy ! Surprisingly, I even correctly named the soap opera she was watching !!! YAY !!!! GO ME!!!! HIGH FIVE!!! Guess which soap opera it was ? Yep, you got it right it was in fact, Days Of Our Lives. After spending time with Grammy it was time to do some exploring of my own….


Centennial Olympic park

My 1st familiar/unfamiliar location was the one and only Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia. This park was built in 1996 for the Summer Olympics. This beautiful location is in the heart of downtown 🌆. It is surrounded by many major Atlanta landmarks such as : the Georgia World Congress Center, College Football Hall of Fame, Philips Arena, the CNN Center, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium(which is under construction)the Georgia Aquarium, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, and the World of Coca-Cola . Can I let you in on a secret?🗣  I actually got to visit another one of those Atlanta landmarks yesterday ! I had a blast ! This location will be revealed in an upcoming blog/vlog.  


Funny thing is, I have been to Centennial Olympic Park before. But I have no memory of it looking like it did . Things have been added like the College Football Hall of Fame and there was also a part of the park under construction. It looks so much bigger than I remember !


Before entering into the park I snapped some quick shots. This first picture at the top of the page was on the opposite side of the street from Centennial Olympic Park. The Ferries Wheel is called Skyview Atlanta. It is said that this Ferris wheel🎡 is nearly 20- stories and the gondolas that you ride in are climate controlled.☀️🌥❄️🌬


Centennial Olympic Park

I continued to walk into the park and was amazed to see how foreign it looked to me.   The thing that caught my attention was the water show that was going on. When the water show is not going on people are allowed to play in the water and cool off  !👙☀️🌊


I had a video of the water show for you all to look at, but I couldn’t get the file to upload & work properly .😓🤓


After watching the water show for a few moments, I began to walk into the park further, talk to my family, and take in the beauty of this amazing location. I did notice there were quite a few fountains around the park. The fountains like the one in the picture below were more so for decoration and not for swimming! There were signs at each fountain that warned people for safety purposes stay out of the fountains & off the rocks. But let’s be real of course people probably swim in these when no one is watching !!👀⛲️

Bright Lights, Sunsets and Funnel Cakes

The Fair 2017
The sun was setting. I could see the bright oranges and yellows that made up the sun ☀. The colors  and the placement of the sun in the sky looked so unreal it appeared to resemble a painting. As I continued to pay attention to my surroundings, the fair came into clear view. I could see bright lights coming from the rides. I became memorized and excited by seeing the lights on the rides. I quickly snapped out of it and realized I had been in the car for approximately 10 minutes just waiting to park. Traffic seemed to be backed up. I begin to explore my environment and noticed what seemed to be hundreds of people both going in and leaving the fair. Finally traffic began to move and I was at the front of the line and it was time to pay for parking. Even after paying for parking it took about 5 to 10 minutes until finally, there was a open parking spot. I opened my door and got out of the car and walked for about half a mile to get to the entrance of the fair. As I walked into the fair I was told to smile by a photographer and snap, off went the flash. From that point, I headed into the fair and one of the first things I decided to do was go to the place where they had animals. While viewing animals I pet some goats, saw some cows, 🐄 and even watched a goat being milked. It looked pretty uncomfortable for the animal. 😞  After leaving the place where the animals were I walked around searching for food, and finally decided to get a slice of cheese pizza. A tiny slice of cheese pizza cost me $5.00! Fair food is expensive and some of it is not worth the price. I wanted food so I settled for it ! I continued to walk around and made my mind up that I didn’t want to ride any of the rides due to the price, and I preferred to keep my feet on the ground on this particular night.🎢🎡🎠 Another thing I did was explore the flea market that was set up. Inside the flea market look alike people were doing foot detoxes, giving massages, selling comics, jewelry and everything in between even hotsauce ! I ended up finding a stand that sold hand made soap along with an array of other items. I was really happy to find these soaps, they are great for the skin and don’t have all the extra ingredients store bought soaps have. I bought both moss and aloe vera soap! (find benefits of both soaps below)   The one thing I couldn’t leave the fair without doing was…….. drum roll  🥁 please……. getting a funnel cake! I didn’t eat much of it, but it’s definitely a fair tradition. One of the main points of going to the fair is to get a funnel cake! Right ? Overall despite I was bumped into a lot by others and at some moments I had to take a breather because it was so many people and so much going on, I enjoyed being there. The things I enjoyed most were the music, sounds, lights, food, and just the atmosphere ! I am glad I get the opportunity to share some of my photos & videos with you all ! See below!

Side note: I really love the goat 🐐 video! They were adorable ! Animals melt my heart! 😍🦁🐬🐄🦋🐎🐓Thanks  so much for reading ! Be Blessed !

Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun. ~ Randy Pausch

I Wait For Your Voice.

I wait for your voice but all I can hear is all the voices around me saying do this, do that, say this, say that, be this, be that. I want to only hear your voice, I want to know where you want me to go, what you want me to do, who you want me to be, I want to know you Lord. So I wait for your voice but all I keep hearing is the noise of sirens, of cries, of yelling, of war, of heart break, but I will wait, I wait for your voice but now all I can hear is my own voice accompanied by my thoughts screaming, you’re not enough, you’re never going to be in the right place, you’re never going to be complete, you’re never going to be healed, you’re never going to be unbroken, you’re never going to reach your full potential, and you’re going in the wrong direction. My voice says turn right, no turn left, no go straight, no go back, no just stand still but through all of this I wait. I wait for your voice because all I want to know is where you want me to go, what you want me to do, and who you want me to be. I want to know you Lord. So I will learn to be still,I will learn to block out the noises, and the voices of the world, I will learn to challenge and block out the self doubting thoughts. I will block out the do this, do that, say this, say that, be this, be that. I want to only hear your voice, I want to know where you want me to go Lord, what you want me to do and who you want me to be. I want to know you Lord, so I will wait for your voice.

Trust in the Lord God with all your heart.
