The Harvest.

My church had a meet up at Long Family Orchard, Farm & Cider Mill in Commerce, Michigan. One of our pastors boasted that they have the best donuts ever! Having visited several orchards in the metro Detroit area for the past three years and tasted some gosh darn good donuts, I was highly intrigued. VisitingContinue reading “The Harvest.”

Culture Shock

Originally posted August 2019. I went back to the Silver Lake sand dunes for a photo shoot with 4 other black women and one Asian. We just so happen to be there during the free ORV weekend. What does that mean? A bunch of predominantly white Americans in their Jeeps, dune buggies and dirt bikes riding aroundContinue reading “Culture Shock”

In The Desert

Originally posted May 2019. So I haven’t traveled anywhere in a minute. At first I blamed life circumstances for that. But at the end of the day, life is just mind over matter. And I’m really trying to mentally get over myself and make things happen especially when people let me down. I’ve been workingContinue reading “In The Desert”

First Time At A Winery

Originally posted August 2017. What happens when I have an intense week? Well, I plan a Saturday trip to a local winery and vineyard with girlfriends for some wine tasting. There’s nothing like good company. Add some wine and a sunny summer afternoon, and you’ve got relaxation.  This was my first time visiting a winery,Continue reading “First Time At A Winery”

My Michigan Summer

Originally posted July 2017. Living in the states, my family tends to mix Nigerian culture with that of the American. For example, Backyard BBQ with Jollof rice, thanksgiving with Jollof rice, ski trips with Jollof rice etc…I’m totally kidding about the last part. There was no Jollof present. But nothing screams American summers louder thanContinue reading “My Michigan Summer”
