Why I took a break from blogging

I owe you an explanation.  I have become the blogless blogger. It has been over a month since I have written to you. My bad. I am truly sorry. This is why: Instagram is where I post pictures and even kiki on IG stories. Facebook is where I share articles. Let you know about events. But HERE. This platform right HERE. This is where I really get to take time and “talk” to you. Be transparent. That is why I am glad I am back.

Why was I gone? Sis, what happened?

Life. There is no pretty answer to this. I was so busy these few weeks that I haven’t made my own blog a priority. In the last month I have

  • Taken Mama Fresh out of state
  • Had my first sponsored TV appearance
  • Sat on 3 amazing panels speaking to women entrepreneurs and parents 
  • Hosted the kids stage at the Silver Room Block Party 
  • Moderated a major platform conversation here in Chicago
  • Worked with a DREAM brand
Mama Fresh in St. Louis
My appearance in The Jam

Spoke on a panel about raising culturally aware kids

Y’all, it has been lit. Mama Fresh is growing in ways I could have never imagined. With that said. I have missed THIS. My space to share with you. I am glad to be back.

Mamas, I’m back!

The days of neglecting my own platform has ended. You can look forward to seeing me more here. Going forward I am going to use this blog to give you insight on what’s REALLY going on. This will be the behind the scenes, not only to Mama Fresh as a brand but what is going on with me personally. This week I am going to catch you up. There are some major changes I have made in my life that have helped with my productivity and peace of mind.  This week I will tell you more about my new workout routine and tell you why I am committed even though I am really “bad” at it. I will share about how finding a church for ObieQ and I has not only grounded my week but my life. Mom hacks, I am also going to share the mom hack that has high key freed up so much time for me and made me a happier Mama and wife. 

You’re a Real One

Thank you. Thank you for rocking with me during this disappearance act. Thank you for giving me grace and knowing my heart is with you, even when I wasn’t popping up in your inbox. It feels good to be reunited. 

And YES…your Freshly Picked Events will be back this Friday. I have read your DM’s, and emails, and comments, and text messages. I am listening and am happy to give you the info you need to get out and explore the city with your family.
