From the dirt, mud and rain to... Paris! I’m attending the FIE - International Fencing Federation gala which I, as an avid sword enthusiast am so excited to experience and I also get to shop at my favorite Miu Miu!!! Thank you @veesback for always making sure this bloody super hero can look like a lady! If you have keen eyes, you’ll notice I’m wearing an original scarf by @chrissbrenner, who’s been making the most amazing fabric designs that I’m dying over (you can’t tell, but this one has a pic of @ambervalletta from a Versace show on it, so effin rad). So happy to have a fun, adult night out with my fabulous gusband!😘 #fencing #miumiu #parisdiary @ Paris, France
Are you kidding me? These faces? They’re killing me. Sometimes I stop everything I’m doing and just savor the present moment. Being a parent is challenging. I have the best intentions. But between sleepless nights and work, between worries and doubts, my patience gets frayed. I get weighed down by “working mom” guilt and before I know it, I’m the “serious” parent all the time. At times like these I try to become hyper aware of the present. Of understanding that no matter how much we try to “do the right thing”, most of the time the right thing is just being silly and making sure everyone has a great big laugh. When my kids get asked later in life what kind of mom they had, I truly do want them to say “a fun mom”. So it’s my goal to have at least one big laugh with my kids every single day. No matter what. #laugheveryday #familygoals #creatingmemories #growingkidsgrowingfood #capetowndiary
It’s the WEEKEND!!! My two favorite people showing me how to get the party started.😆😆😆 #evergabo #dashieledan #growingkidsgrowingfood #capetowndiary
I want to pay respect to the family of Jemel Roberson, who should be a national hero today, but is being buried instead. A father to Tristan, with another baby on the way, he was devoted to his family. On November 11 a gunman started shooting in Manny’s bar and Jemel, a security guard who wanted to become a police officer, selflessly and bravely stopped the shooter and pinned him to the ground. When police arrived, one of the officers shot and killed Jemel, assuming he was the gunman. Witnesses say Jemel wasn’t given a chance to put down his weapon before he was shot. Take a moment to hashtag #jemelroberson And send respect to his family on this sad day that they are putting him in the ground.
Here are some words from @leemerrittesq about this extraordinary man:
#jemelroberson is a National Hero. We can’t reiterate that enough. He died working extra shifts to provide for Tristan and the baby on the way. He died saving lives. He was a provider and protector. South side Chicago is a difficult place to be raised in and stay out of trouble. Jemel excelled in this community as a musician and security professional. He never had a single blemish on his record. After single handed lay preventing a mass shooting, police arrived, mistook him for a bad guy and shot him to death. Today has been so difficult for this family and community. Jemel didn’t deserve this. But he does deserve justice. Now it’s fine to work for it. Rest In Peace Jemel.
Happy Belated Birthday to one of the loveliest people I know. You joy and passion shed light on everyone around you and I’m so lucky to have shared that gorgeous energy all these years!❤️❤️❤️
