#SocialDistanceSpiritWeek Day 5: a Disney Friday viewing of Mulan in honor of this being the original premiere date for the live action @Mulan. #DisneyClassics #FlashbackFriday #WeGotThis #AloneTogether #COVID_19
#SocialDistanceSpiritWeek Day 3: “It’s beginning to look a [little] like Christmas” in March. I did a light deck the halls as Christmas commences. Christmas is my second favorite season, after Easter— well until this year and ‘45. #JesusTakeTheWheel #WeGotThis #AloneTogether #Coronavirus #COVID_19 #AmericansAreMoreThanTrump
#SocialDistanceSpiritWeek Day 2: Kicking off the morning with a little stretching and crazy sock action. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! Join me tomorrow for Christmas in March, we need all the joy! #WeGotThis #AloneTogether #Coronavirus #COVID_19
Social Distance Spirit Week Day one: Business on the top and “naughty or nice holiday” PJs on the bottom. Had to conduct some interviews, so gave all professional in the “Zoom view” and it snowed!!! So, might as well rock my fleece jammies. Join me tomorrow for crazy socks day. #WeGotThis #AloneTogether #Coronavirus #SocialDistanceSpiritWeek
DJ @DNice is a national treasure and helped so many of us party through social isolation with his new #DNiceHomeSchool #ClubQuarentine. The party on Sunday hit over 160K at one point, just wow. And little ol’ me got to party with some of my favorite entertainers that i’ve always wanted to meet— @traceeellisross, @tarajiphenson, @wutangclan, @pink, @willsmith, @lenawaithe, @bunb, @jadakiss, @bet, @deborahcox and so many more. THANK YOU D-NICE! #WeGotThis #AloneTogether #Coronavirus #covid_19
From me to all putting your health and life at risk to see us through this pandemic, THANK YOU! #Grateful #Gratitude #ThankYou #Coronavirus
A friend sent me this... 🤣😂😭. Been self-quarantining since 2018, cuz it’s 45’s ‘Merica 🤷🏽‍♀️💁🏽‍♀️.
The telework space all set up. I’ve designed from the comfort of my sofa. But, full time work from home and my brain needed structure. #Telework #Coronavirus #PinBoard #Quotes #friendsgiving
The last woman I was cheering for in the #DemocraticPrimary has left the race and i’m disappointed. @ElizabethWarren is genuine and had a plan, many of them in fact. One day, soon I hope, we’ll have a woman #POTUS. Until then Bernie or Biden, decisions decisions. #Roadto2020 #Election2020.
Happy Womxn’s History Month and Lent! Meeting Cyntioa Brown Long and hearing her living testimony during @bsu1968 Black History Month Keynote was truly a powerful and inspiring testimony of faith. “Praying can get you moving down the road even when there is no gas in the tank... Whenever you find yourself trapped in a situation, know that God’s timing is impeccable. Trust me when I tell you, whom the sun sets free is free indeed.” -- @cyntoiabrownofficial #MondayMotivation #Faith #Prayer #Lent2020
