I've been having waayy too much fun being a newlywed to write, so I apologize for leaving y'all hanging. Our wedding day was so incredible, I felt God's bright beaming light and love wrapped around us so tightly. We truly had the time of our lives and it's been non-stop fun and adventures ever since. Our honeymoon in St. Lucia was so breathtakingly beautiful. We were able to stay in two resorts that week. At one point we were so high up the mountain that we could literally see over a rainbow. The food was delicious and the St. Lucians were so warm to us. We are so overwhelmed by everyone's generosity and are so inspired.

We can't thank you enough!
I just devoured Lola Shoneyin's The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives. I stumbled upon it at the New York Public Library and finished it in 3 days. I love her writing style. The story is saucy, sorrowful and yet uplifting. Loved it!
