Swirling Ascension

#regram of a #regram of a #repost I’m posting this so I can laugh about it years from now. Thanks @jemasbury !


Last night was mad real. I had praise and worship, soul sessions and then literally fell asleep on the middle of my living floor where I was sitting and got up at 6 am like what happened?!? @rae_vans being the creeper that she is was right there to capture my intimate moment, #DruHillisEverything #DreadsSwinging #YouCanCatchTheSpiritOnAnRandBSong


When I was growing up I noticed the women in my family didn’t place too much value on outside friendships it was all about family. So I assumed my life would be the same. But I thank God that He saw fit to bless and enrich my entire life when I met Whitney Nicole @juiceeg in 6th grade. She dropped some papers and cussed so fluidly I had to know who she was. Little did I know this gurl would become so important and so treasured to me and my family. She’s truly like a sister (and y’all know I looove my @rae_vans) in that she inspires and encourages me when I’m on the right track and gets me together when I’m wrong. I can share my fears, my dreams and my isht with her and I know she’ll be there with love to help me navigate through. Please know if these dudes weren’t such a…distraction we would have BEEN united in holy matrimony, ruled the world with our brilliance and raised gifted and beautiful children with the contribution of a man seed provided by a dude who was part Marc Lamont Hill, Idris Elba and Lil Boosie. #TrueStory Put simply I love her forever and always. Happy Birthday my love, my light, my sisterfriend! I see you GlowIN!


I just knew that when I finished the first draft of my book is was going to cry. But when that didn’t happen, I thought ok maybe when I get it printed. But that didn’t happen either. Today though watching my parents read it and getting their approval #tears Loved this moment. #RentsInNy View Larger

This morning I woke up singing “Real fathers real men” from Tom Joyner. And today all of them definitely deserve to be celebrated, especially my Dad Edward D! I’m not in the country now but I know that’s in large part because my father is the man who made sure we went somewhere every year. He encouraged our wanderlust and always supported my sister and I see and trying new things. I just finished the first draft of my book and I thank my father for pushing me to write one before I even had an idea. I’m so grateful and thankful to God for giving me to parents who supported all of my dreams financially, emotionally and spiritually. I know my Daddy prays for us. Thank you Dad for not only being there but shaping us into the women we are today. Love you always to the moon and back!
