“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog. Warning: There is adult language used…mostly by LadyG 😊
I just wanted to step back on the blog after a long hiatus to check in with you guys!
I have truly missed you all, and I want you to know that you were never far away from my heart.
So, let’s talk about the title of this post…
Today marks an exciting new beginning! To be specific, my dear cousin Ron and I are planning to do several collaborative projects that will involve writing, shooting videos and possibly podcasting.
Many of you will remember our collaborations during the early days of this blog. In fact, Ron is featured here under the category “Ron’s Time Tunnel.”
He is also heavily featured, along with your’s truly, under the “Flowering Vine” category where we detail our Southern roots; not to mention the complexities of race.
For those of you who do not know, Ron and I are first cousins. His mother and my father are siblings. And, frankly, the “Flowering Vine” is a great place to start for folks who are interested in getting to know our family.
But, I digress….
Just know that Ron, a veteran of The United States Air Force, is a magnificent writer and storyteller who has his own blog.
In addition to the writing that he does there, he recently completed his Master’s degree.
YAAAAY and congratulations!
Suffice it to say, Cuz has been BUSY!!!!
Anyway, today, I am so happy to present a video of Ron speaking at his church during a Friends and Family Celebration for Black History Month.
Now, before we proceed, I must inform you that the video was recorded on a cell phone and it is a bit grainy…Not to mention the fact that I had to crop out a couple of beautiful church hats!
My homegirl, Lennon Carlyle, just nominated me for The Unique Blogger Award!
Baby, if you haven’t already, you need to get some Lennon in your life. That sister’s always up to something good over at Fabulous with Glitches.
I love her “Hump Day Shenanigans Series,” and her musings on “erratic text messages.” LOL!!!
Thank you for nominating me Lennon!
You my gurl!
Oh and did I mention that she’s a tall and gorgeous blond?
Supposedly, they have more fun right?
Why don’t you pop on over to her blog and see if that’s true.
Anywhats, all blog awards have rules and this one provides no exception for that tradition. That said:
The rules for this award are:
Thank the blogger who nominated you and include a link to their blog. (Done)
Include one meme and one quote you really like.
Nominate 8-13 bloggers to receive this award.
Ask your nominees 3 UNIQUE questions.
Add a link to the awards creator. (I didn’t catch that part.)
Favorite Meme (At this moment):
Quote I like:
“Go sit your ass down somewhere!”–Mama
No, seriously, everybody ought to take time to chill for a minute–every single day. If you do this, you’ll find that you are much more focused and, shall I say, “unbothered.”
Clearly, Mama was on to something 😉
Answers to Questions:
Use three words to describe you? Effervescent, Funny, Smart. No shade, I’m just telling you what the peoples have told me. I would have included Gorgeous, Sexy and Seductive but I was told that I could ONLY pick three! ROTFLMAO 🙂
If there was one job you could do for the rest of your life – what would it be? I’d be a AAA Secret Shopper for 5-Diamond Hotels in Europe! YAAASSSS!
You’re going to be dumped on a desert island for a year and can take three things with you…Chile who you kidding? Black women don’t be getting lost on no deserted islands!
Blogs I’d like to nominate:
I’m always apprehensive about nominating bloggers because there are a lot of award free blogs out there. That being the case, I’m just selecting a few of my favorites –I hope they don’t mind.
