Last week after school Halloween began for our family! I picked up Princess Elena of Avalon and we head right over to NOMA to enjoy a Pumpkin Palooza!
We have been attending for the last few years and it’s amazing how this community event has grown tremendously in attendance numbers!
Next up… we enjoyed some weekday funnin at Catholic University! Both kids were official NASA astronauts ( it was so cold baby boy didn’t get to show off his shirt…. but he did trick or treat…. for me 😜 because I mean let’s be honest…. I can’t let my precious baby eat candy yet!) The kids had a blast! The students worked hard and were so kind to the attendees! They served pizza and snacks, had a trick or treat trail with fun costumes all around. Tons of games and activities, face paint and two moon bounces on a large field that was highly decorated for all to enjoy! We will definitely be back next year!
Three days into Halloween and it’s time to hit the Halloween streets! Crowded per usual! Fun costumes and a bucket full of goodies.
Are anyone else’s kids obsessed with The Descendants Movie? Liv/Uma was pumped to get all suited up and debut her outfit!
The weekend was also filled with parties cue: Beyoncé “We Like to Party” ….. and
Halloween has not even officially arrived!

We have a few more events to attend to finish off our Halloween season ( I miiiight update this post to include them)
Happy Candy Day 🎃
I 💛 this picture!
Liv is happy, free, mindful and creative (only to name a few attributes) and she makes me so proud to have a front row seat in supporting her to become exactly who she is in this world!
Her confidence to put in work and engage in things that make her happy inspires me so much ✨
If you know her you have definitely smiled from the light that she brings to this world.
Join Liv's Mailing List so you don't miss an opportunity to support her creative work!
Love & Light, Party People
No matter the weather my little humans like to stay busy! Baby boy is walking now so a climate controlled adventure space where the kids can climb and laugh as loud as their hearts desire is perfect when it's messy outside!
We played at Skillzone until the
kids (read: Mommy) got tired!
Where are you guys playing this summer?
This blog started because this precious little soul chose me to mother her… flash to present day I have been chosen yet again to nurture my son along this journey as well. Being their mom is the greatest joy of my life and I have never been more committed to anyone. The love of my humans fuel my entire existence.
This past Sunday my crew set aside time and energy for Momma! We keep a very full schedule but Sunday we slowed all the way down and did my favorite thing…. eating at the beach…
They made Momma feel special this day and always I LOVE them
Last night Step Afrika “stepped” off the beginning of their tour throughout the wards! If you have yet to see this talented group this FREE tour around the city is the perfect opportunity to get familiar with their talent! And for those of you who have attended a Step Afrika performance prior I’m sure you’ve already made arrangements.
The energy at TheArc in Ward 8 last night was positively elevated, as people of all ages Sold Out the venue eagerly filling the theatre anticipating a good time. We enjoy theatre as a family, we enjoy movement and our connection to uplifting African American moments runs deep.
The show had a bit of education regarding the origins of stepping, tons of crowd participation, as well as live music just to highlight a few elements. SN: I was personally thrilled to see one of my Fellow Elon Alum shining so brightly throughout the performance. *Go Dionne Go!*
Here is the link to reserve your tickets for the tour and more info/ show offerings from Step Afrika
Princess Liv took sometime to read her brochure while experiencing an interactive exhibit at TheArc.
DC outdoors is so good!
It’s so amazing to live in a area that provides such a diverse entertainment scene. From the free museums , to swanky little restaurants to the ah- mazing outdoors DC does not lack “things to do”. Fletcher’s Cove is such a wonderful experience in Georgetown.
Fishing, canoeing and the beautiful opportunity to connect with what matters can all be experienced in this beautiful space.
C&O Canal has quite an interesting history so you just may learn something by taking a visit to this space.
Where does your family go to enjoy the outdoors?
Words can’t express the delight in watching your child blossom. Watching your child choose activities that suit them and the joy they have while learning and engaging in their interest areas. Any opportunity for my child to manifest her greatness we are there. Liv has been attending Artful Afternoons at the Smithsonian and she loves it!
Each session highlights the work of a preselected artist. The children create at multiple stations throughout the school, using a variety of materials that are relevant to the work of the artist while inspiring the young artist to manifest on their own. To replenish their strength the children conclude with a group snack time. So cute! So fun!
