Meet Natalie Lewis

Her thoughts on motherhood: Motherhood is a divine calling. It requires intelligence, intuitive understanding, humility, strength, wisdom spiritually and perseverance. It is the greatest trust given to women. We are called to be totally responsible for another human being. Motherhood is laughter, tears, fear, joy, worry, anxiousness, and pride. It's being kind but honest, gentle but strong, nurturing but encouraging independence, supporting and being the number one cheerleader. Motherhood is raising strong girls to become strong women, empowering my children…

Meet Tracey Quashie

Meet Tracey Quashie Her thoughts on motherhood: Motherhood is the very essence, the fabric of my being. For me, motherhood means just being there to support my children in whatever they do and guiding them along life's pathway the best way I can. My greatest challenge as a mom is having to divide my time between my children and the other demands of life such as work and other personal commitments. However, I know that in life there must be…

Meet Natasha Bailey

Meet Natasha Shaneeka Bailey Her thoughts on motherhood: Being a mother means so much. It means being loving, protective and selfless when it comes to my children. It also means sacrifice, meaning that, my needs and wants must be put on hold to cater to those of my children. In other words they come first in my life. Now, I'm not saying that you should no longer take care of yourself because to take care of yourself, it just means…

Responsibilities and expectations of your Maid/Matron of Honor:

She should be supportive! I remember the day prior to getting married, I was all relaxed having my massage and facial.  Our bouquets arrived and …........I had a moment of panic. Despite meeting with the Florist months in advance and giving her a deposit with photos of exactly what was expected, she somehow managed to screw things up.  I had an early morning wedding and I didn’t know where I could find new bouquets on such short notice….. Fortunately, my…

Review – OJ’s Beach Bar & Restaurant

Prior to joining our family at OJ's, we placed our order by phone. I ordered seafood pasta. My first choice would have been lobster but, lobster season is close. My experience........ What went right: The pasta had lots of shrimp and fish. The portion size was good.  More than I could eat –  and this girl loves to eat! Prior to eating my pasta, I tasted the mussels my husband had for his appetizer and it was absolutely “delicious”.   It…

I Review for you!

For me, it reminds me of what I ate, so…

The Joy of Motherhood – my children

  Last year, at Mother's Day church service, I sat with anticipation as I awaited the sermon from Pastor Simon. I was disappointed to learn that there would be no sermon that day. His sermons are amazing!  Instead, pastor asked the mothers in the congregation "what motherhood meant to us."  It was a hot Sunday morning and as I sat there barefoot and pregnant,  I started to think about my answer but prayed he didn't ask me to stand and…

The Matriarch of the Family

  I am so thankful for this amazing woman.  She is the glue that holds us all together.  We are so blessed to have her totally involved in our lives. Childhood memories with my Grandmother As her eldest Grand-child, I was fortunate to have my grandmother all to myself the first four years of my life.  It was she who took me on my first trip to the big Apple – New York! I was 8 years old and I was so…
