Good late night Beautiful Women,
Happy Monday to you all! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I spent mine in Virginia celebrating the 50th Birthday of one of my college brothers. We had such a great time reminiscing and enjoying each other’s company. On Sunday, I also had the opportunity to be featured on my college sister’s Surrounded By Wellness page to talk about my journey with Diabetes and other obstacles. This is a great page that talks about the strength and courage of women and how we should take care of our mental and physical health. Even though it took me 15 hours to get home due to bus issues, I’m happy to say I am safe and sound!
