This is one of those conversations that I could go on and on about. As a matter of fact Sarah told me she would come back to speak to me again and I think I am going to take her up on that. Sarah was born in a small town where the majority of people in the town were white.  A direct quote from Sarah is "the biggest problem with small towns is the minds in those towns are quite small too" Go on a journey with us as she tells us how she escaped that small town mentality and how is she sees race and diversity today. This was an interesting conversation y'all and as the conversations on critical race theory pick up momentum I want to explore more of where we think all this talk about race and telling the truth about how this country was built is going to lead us.  
So yawl know we can actually be cute cute sporting sustainable fashion, right?  Earth Day is approaching and last I checked we get ONE Earth, and we have a lot of work to do to maintain the health of it.  One way of doing this is by wearing recycled clothing and recycling the things that you are no longer in need of. Shannon Crawford of https://www.instagram.com/ferventlychic  and I discuss why it is so important to be diligent about reducing, reusing and recycling. Shannon is doing the work of teaching us how over on her IG page as well as on her You Tube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDShCulTOgQ  Y'all aren't going to believe these looks are repurposed.  They are gonna wanna make you run to your local Goodwill!

Truth is even mamas who have not been diagnosed with depression have days where parenting is down right difficult. Sometimes managing our own emotions, thoughts and feelings can be enough and then add parenting to that. I don't know about you but I want to build strong healthy relationships with my children, in order to do so I need practical ways to take care of my mental health. Today, Kimberly is going to share with us how she is able to show up for herself so she can show up for her children.

 Where all my allies at!?!? This week I was able to sit down with Amanda Gorman, of the Finding your Village Podcast, and talk about allyship and finding joy while doing so. We chat about why it is so uncomfortable for white women to ask for help or to admit they don't have all the answers, here we give freedom to show up and confront some of this misconceptions. We also chat about putting down perfection and picking up the mantle of diving in and doing the real work. Racial reconciliation will move the needle in our lives and cause us to move toward real relationship. Join Amanda and I  work to connect on a deeper level.  Find Amanda here http://www.instagram.com/findingyourvillage Amanda and I talked about a presentation by Lisa Sharon Haper and Jen Hatmaker called White Women's Toxic Tears, find the link below and take a look at it. https://youtu.be/WCc7DS5_s0U This list of Anti-Racism tools is soooo good!
