July First…

Happy July everyone. Yes, We made it yall! We made it out the first half of 2020. On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note for the month of  July. June has definitely been an emotionally month, some high moments and some low.  I was able to officially celebrate Juneteenth, which has been recognize as an holiday in Michigan.  I use that time to learn, celebrate with family, and teach others.  Next year, I look forward to this holiday, I want to have an actually party.   As a country we definitely have a lot more work to do when it comes to addressing the problems we face. However, I plan to make the best out of July. I refuse to let myself be carried away with all stress, and pain. With what is going on I plan to get closer with my faith, and help be the change I want to see for this country. We need more empathy and honesty. Overall I am thankful for health, my family and friends and look forward to great month. What do you look forward to?  Related: June First Related: June …
