Mamas & their babies

I met Marie in 2004 when I started working at Scoop here in Miami.

We worked together for almost 6 years and through that time we became like family. (I call her mommy)

What can I say about Marie other than she is fabulous!!! (when I say fabulous, I mean she is FABULOUS.)

She has one of the greatest fashion senses, always looks fab AND always (like maybe even in bed) wears HIGH heels.

I’m not kidding, when I started working with her, she was very pregnant with Ade and she was on her feet in heels all day long!

But don’t let her fun with high fashion fool you, she is one strict and tough mama.

Both Kemi (now 19 and in NYC in college) and Ade are super well behaved and well mannered children.

You want to know something else fab about Marie?

If you don’t want to hear the truth, don’t ask her.

She always let’s you have the truth, even when you don’t like it.




Yesterday we went over to our friends Marie and Sunday’s home to celebrate their son Ade’s seventh birthday.

On the way there, Will was in denial of how old Ade is already thinking that he was turning four.

Yeah, like three years ago!!

Ade’s birthday is a big bash every year and I’m happy to say that with the exception of one year, I have been there for every single celebration since he turned one.

It was wonderful to have spent the day with my Haitian family.

Happy birthday Ade, you rock star!!!

(P.S.- Even though I’m a day late, I’m linking to Mandy for Steppin Out)

Oh, and Happy July 4th everyone! 🙂 Have fun and be safe!


and a SHOUT OUT to…


He turned 6 last week and we went to his birthday party yesterday to celebrate his birthday with him, his family and friends.

I have gone to his birthday parties since he turned 1. I can’t believe he is 6 already and that this time around I had Lily with me.

Life.  Wow, amazing!

Ade, the handsome birthday boy
