Happy Birthday!!!!!

Today, I want to take the time out to say a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY  to my very first friend! Arinola, what would my life be like without you? Thank you for being my best friend, my voice of reason, my encourager, my supporter but most importantly, my big sister! You mean the world to me! I don’t think anyone in this world understands me like you! I pray that this year will be the MIND-BLOWING! I pray you accomplish all your dreams, I pray God grants you all your heart’s desires and much more. Thank you for making me a real aunty to my favorite little human beings! (Y’all, ain’t she fine, keep in mind, she’s an AMAZING, FIERCE mother of two!).

Go best friend!

Till next time.

Love always,

Shayo

Man of Your Word (feat. Chandler Moore and KJ Scriven)

by Maverick City Music.

How are you holding up? If I am completely honest, this week has been a bit difficult for no particular reason other than that I am TIRED. I decided to take a mental health day next week and I am hoping it helps lift my mood. 

One thing that can always get me in a good mood is good music, but more importantly, music that speaks to my soul. I have noticed that what I listen to or watch or whoever I am around influences my mood. Sometimes I cannot control who I am around, but I can definitely control what I watch and listen to, so I am very intentional about the music I listen to nowadays. 

A group that I have been enjoying is Maverick City Music. I believe I came across the group during one of my long Instagram browses sometime last year, and I have been hooked ever since. They just released a new album in the last month (released on iTunes last week). I have been listening to this album daily for the last couple of weeks and I love it. If you haven’t heard of them and never listened to a song, you should. They have three albums that I know of: Maverick City Vol.1, Maverick City, Vol. 2 and the most recent one being Maverick City Vol. 3 Part I (I can’t wait for part II). 

On to the song of the month, Man of Your Word. 

This song reminds me that I can trust God despite what things look like. He has never failed me and will not start now. He is a Man of His word and I can trust and believe that whatever He has said will come to pass. This reminds me of something I read years ago in Rick Warren’s book “What on Earth Am I Here For?” which states, “Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light,” which was a quote from V. Raymond Edman. Especially in these difficult times, it is a nice reminder that God doesn’t change. Yes, our circumstances may change, but If God has said and confirmed something, it remains true despite what things look like in the physical. Remember that!

I pray this gives you some hope this week. 

Below, you will find some of my favorite lyrics of the song, and also don’t forget to watch the YouTube video at the top of this post. Enjoy!

All things are possible
When we believe
Old chains are breakable
When we receive
Yahweh
You keep Your promises

If You said it, we believe it
If You said it, hey!
If You said it, we believe it
If You said it, we believe it
‘Cause You’re a man of Your word
If You said it, we believe it
If You said it, we believe it
You’re a man of Your word

We have this confidence
You’ll finish what You started
God, You have never failed
You won’t start with me
You’re present in every step
Patient in every heartache
God, You have never failed
You won’t start with me

I am who You say I am (If You said it, we believe it)
I am who You say I am (If You said it, we believe it)
I am who You say I am
I am who You say I am
I am who You say I am
I am who You say I am
I am who You say I am
I am who You say I am (You’re a son, you’re a daughter)
I am who You say I am (Said You’re never forsaken)
I am who You say I am (You’re the beloved of God)
I am who You say I am (I am who You say I am)
I am who You say I am (I am who You say I am)
I am who You say I am (I am chosen by [?])
I am who You say I am

If You said it, we believe it
If You said it, we believe it
‘Cause You’re a man of Your word
If You said it, we believe it
If You said it, we believe it
‘Cause You’re a man of Your word

Your Word is written in stone
It’s a thing we can always count on
You honor Your word
You’ll never have to repent
‘Cause You’ll never go against what You say

I am (I am who You say I am)
And I am what I am (I am who You say I am)
‘Cause the Great I Am speaks over me (I am who You say I am)

Till next time. 

Love always, 

Shayo

Gratitude

You may have noticed that there was no post last week – there was no excuse for it other than that I got busy and didn’t plan accordingly. I apologize to my weekly followers!

Unfortunately, we are still in the middle of this COVID-19 pandemic which has interrupted all our lives. I am sure we have all had a range of emotions during this time, and I am not any different, but like I said in my previous post, I am not anxious and that remains the same. 

I have actually enjoyed the way I have been able to connect with people lately. For example, for the last two weekends, I have had video conference calls with my siblings and spent hours talking about all kinds of things, but mostly just laughing and enjoying each other’s company. We do not all live in the same city, so we usually only get to be together during the holidays.  This has been a nice alternative, given the circumstances. I have also had FaceTime dates with friends with whom I usually would only communicate via text. 

This leads me to today’s post on gratitude. I am learning to see the good in every situation despite what it looks like at first glance. We all have things to be grateful for, despite the current societal challenges. Most of the time, we focus on the negative or the one thing we do not have and that’s what defines our lives. 

Imagine if we chose to focus on the positive. The things that were going well. How do you think your outlook on life would change? What if we chose to be more grateful during this time…and focused on choosing gratitude every day?

Two Bible verses come to mind as I am writing this. The first is Matthew 12:34:

For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 

Whatever is in our heart is revealed by our speech. So, to me, that means what I choose to dwell on will be revealed by what I say. Imagine if we all had grateful hearts, can you imagine how lovely our world would be? Think of the people in your life who are unhappy – how do you know they are unhappy? By the things they say. 

So now you’re wondering how to become more grateful. This leads me to Philippians 4:8:

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 

Plain and simple – focus on the good. 

I challenge you today to fix your focus on the good and not the bad; it may give you a new appreciation for the life you have. Yes, I know things are not going well, people are losing jobs, having financial crises, lives are being lost. However, in your life today, I am sure you can think of a couple of things you are grateful for. It may take a few minutes or hours or even a day to come up with something, but it’s important to count your blessings. I dare you!

To give you a jumping off point, here is my “short” list of things I am grateful for:

  • God’s love, presence and faithfulness in my life.
  • My blessed life.
  • A clean bill of health.
  • My immediate family – I wouldn’t trade them for anything despite how much they get on my nerves sometimes!
  • My nephews.
  • “Extended” family – If you are Nigerian, you know all those aunts and uncles who are not really related to you but are closer than your actual blood. I am so grateful for them. Shout out to my favorite, Aunty Tola!
  • Friendships, new and old.
  • My great job.
  • Good music.
  • Good food.
  • Therapy – Where would I be without this?
  • Free delivery with Uber Eats.
  • No traffic daily (praise God).
  • Low gas prices.
  • Curbside pickup with my beauty supply (message me for the details).
  • Telemedicine – This has cut down on the number of patients I have to physically interact with.
  • Amazon Prime – Need I say more? 
  • Netflix – My current favorite is Money Heist. What should I watch next?
  • All these Instagram/Tik Tok challenges.
  • Good weather – It’s 68 degrees as I sit outside in the backyard writing this.

Do you accept my challenge to write down or reflect on one or two things you are grateful for every morning? Come on, you can do it.  I guarantee it will change your perspective on your situation. If you feel comfortable and bold, leave me a comment with things you are grateful for. 

Till next time.

Love always, 

Shayo 

Transiting to Spring

Hey guys! 

I know we are currently in the midst of a pandemic; however, instead of continuing to dwell on COVID-19, I have chosen to stay informed about the situation but not be consumed by it (hence this post). I have told many people that I am not living in fear, but I am still taking the necessary precautions to avoid spreading the virus. I hope you all are doing the same. 

To the people on the frontlines, risking their lives for our safety, we appreciate you and I pray that God continues to protect you. To the rest of you all who are not on the frontlines, do us a favor and stay home. This season, too, shall pass. That’s all I’ve got for you this week on COVID-19 –  you can refer to my previous post about it.

Today I want to focus on my monthly post about fashion! I don’t know about you, but I have vacation, spring time and summer time on my mind. So, I have three outfits that show my transition from winter to spring. I hope you enjoy them, and I hope that very soon we will all be able to lay out on the beach. I am so ready. LOL 

Faux Leather Dress

I have had this little faux leather dress in my closet since September of last year and so far, I haven’t had for the right opportunity to wear it. Well, here we go! I chose this outfit to begin with because as you can see below, you can wear this in the winter time (with some tights, of course) and then change the top (and take the tights off) and you have a whole new look that can be worn in the spring or even summer. 

Pink Piet Top  

I purchased this fun top from a Nigerian clothing store called Peridot. I met Lola, the designer, a few years back when she designed and made bridesmaids’ dresses for a wedding I was in. She is one of the sweetest people I met in Nigeria, so, when she opened her ready-to-wear clothing store, I had to find a way to get my hands on something! This top caught my eye – I love the sheer material; it makes it flirty and sexy at the same time. This top could be worn with pants or a skirt, but I chose to pair it with some high-waisted shorts because summer time is on my mind.

Nude Dress 

This sexy dress is from Zara! I don’t have much to say about this dress, I just want to wear it somewhere very soon! 

I hope you guys take care. 

Till next time. 

Love always, 

Shayo 

Pray for you- Jhené Aiko

So, if you did not know, I am a lover of music. Lately, all I have been listening to is praise and worship, but I had someone convince me to listen Jhené Aiko’s new album, Chilombo, and I fell in love. I really enjoyed her last album, Trip, so I don’t know why I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. Just like I have a monthly fashion post, I am going to start a monthly music post. I contemplated which song from the album I would write about and then this album came into my life. 

I am going to list a few of my favorites songs from Chilombo in the order in which they appear on the album: Triggered, None of Your Concern, Speak, B.S., P*$$y Fairy, Born Tired, Love, 10K Hours, Summer 2020, Mourning Doves, Pray for You, Lightening & Thunder, Magic Hour and Party for Me. 

Okay I think I listed practically the whole album, lol. Well, that was pointless…. 

You can see how hard it was for me to pick one song but I had to choose this song because it is the most relatable and mature…you guessed it, “Pray for You.” I think once a month, I have to be very vulnerable, but here we go. When I first heard the song, I was like YES!!!! I know that feeling all too well.It takes a lot of maturity to pray for someone who hurt you, or even to wish them well after the pain they’ve caused. But once you get to that point, you know you have truly forgiven the person, moved on and that you have grown. That is where I am today, and I can truly say that I pray for the people who have hurt me, be it intentionally or unintentionally. I love song lyrics so I have included them in this post for you to read; however, go listen to Jhené Aiko’s new album Chilombo and enjoy her beautiful soul, mind and voice. 

Pray for you by Jhené Aiko 


The feeling’s finally mutual
I’m ready to let you know
Don’t wanna see you no more
I’m ready to let this go

But never will I ever not wish you well
Though we’re not together, God bless you still
It’s gonna get better, I know it will
Just hope you know, I still

I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you

I pray you find your confidence
Pray you find a confidant, pray you get everything that you want
Pray you get everything that I could not give to you
I know that it may seem weird to you

But never will I ever not wish you well
Though we’re not together, God bless you still
It’s gonna get better, I know it will
Just hope you know, I still
I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray for you, I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray

Till next time. 

Love always, 

Shayo 

COVID-19

Well, I am sure everyone has been affected by this by now. It is very unfortunate, and I hope it passes soon. I am in the healthcare profession and we have been hit hard; however, I cannot speak on how hard it has hit the system because I am not aware of the depths. I can only speak from my own perspective as someone who works in a community-based oncology office.

My patients are scared. The majority of my patients are receiving treatments which cause immunosuppression, and most of my patients are over the age of 60, which puts them in the highest-risk group for contracting this virus. But on the other side of this, my patients are receiving treatment that is practically saving their lives, so as much as they would rather stay home, they keep coming to the office because they are trying to fight cancer. 

Thank God my company has implemented many safe practices to screen and help protect our vulnerable population, but it still is a stressor for my patients. My life personally has not significantly been affected because I still go to work daily due to the nature of my job. I have had minor impacts such as having to cancel a trip, my gym has closed down (probably the thing that affected me the most), my church group is meeting virtually, and church services are being held online. Even though the impact for me has been minimal, my heart goes out to the families that are affected financially due to the virus and the kids who are home from school, and the general sense of fear everyone has at this moment. Personally, I think fear is most apparent in the grocery stores – when you look at the faces of the people shopping, you can clearly see the fear as they are picking up the remnants of what is left on the shelves. 

I am not afraid, but I am overwhelmed. I am being bombarded with so much information daily about COVID-19, from the news and the radio to the Internet and people I know. That is all that is talked about right now, and I get it, but I think majority of the talk is not helpful. I personally think the majority of the information stirs up anxiety in people and that is transferred from person to person. I found myself getting anxious after reading a few articles and scrolling through Instagram. I told myself that I needed a break. 

I have decided to definitely participate in social distancing, but I have also decided to limit the amount of information I let in about COVID-19. I know my family and friends are just sharing out of love, but I do not read everything anymore. I do not follow people down the rabbit hole of “What if?” I can’t; it doesn’t lead me anywhere but back to being more anxious. I have decided that I am putting my trust in God. I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not know how long this “lockdown” will last. I do not know how long COVID-19 will be a threat but I know at the end of it all, I will be fine. 

The Bible verse that has come to mind repeatedly in this season is Matthew 6:27. “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matter of fact, Matthew 6:25-34 is entitled Do Not Worry. I think it is very appropriate to read that at this time. At the end of the chapter, Jesus says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” That brings me so much comfort. I am reminded that I don’t have to figure out tomorrow. I just need to live in today and worry not. Worry does not change my situation. Worry does not give me answers and worry sure doesn’t make me feel any better. So, I have decided I will not worry, and I will not be afraid. I will take the necessary precautions such as washing my hands often, avoiding crowds and avoiding touching my face.  

I definitely recommend taking the necessary precautions the CDC recommends to protect you, your family and community from COVID-19. I also recommend staying prepared and stocking up on supplies (I do not recommend panicking and going overboard!). But above all else, I recommend staying grounded and rooted in Christ. He is our healer, protector and comforter. Pray, read the Bible and trust in the One that has given you life. 

I will leave you will some verses to encourage you:

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Deuteronomy 31:8 “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Psalms 42:11 “Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—my Savior and my God!”

Psalms 91 

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

Hope this gives you some peace during this difficult time. 

Till next time.

Love always,

Shayo 

What Are You Doing With Your Time?

You may or may have not noticed that there was no blog last week. Well, I had some technical difficulties – I surprisingly no longer had Word on my computer! I also just plain had a busy week, so I didn’t have time to deal with my computer. 

How are you living? How was your week? How’s the time change treating you?

I want to talk about TIME today. What are you doing with your time? As many of you know, I work in the medical field and I specifically work in oncology. Oncology is essentially the study of cancer, so that means I walk alongside my patients as they are going through cancer treatment. Sometimes the outcome is good and they become cancer-free after a series of treatments, and sometimes the outcome is not so great and ultimately leads to death. 

I have been in the oncology field for about 10 years now and I honestly think God has kept me here for a reason. I have tried several times to leave oncology, but I have never succeeded. So now I have stopped fighting oncology and I am learning to embrace it. Working in the medical field, especially in the field of oncology, you become very familiar with death. I think the longer you are exposed to it, the better you learn to deal with it. 

I remember a case from very early in my career when I had to leave my young patient’s room in tears because I saw her lose hope and give up, and I knew there was nothing left but for her to die. I had grown very close to this patient and we had long conversations about life, God and family. I remember I even bought her a copy of the book “Jesus Calling.” She died shortly after, and that experience made me learn to keep a healthy distance between my patients and myself. I still care deeply for my patients, but I know it is not healthy to take that feeling outside of work. 

That experience occurred more than seven years ago and I have experienced many patient deaths since then; however, two weeks ago, I was hit by a patient’s death that broke my heart all over again. Due to HIPAA laws, I cannot go into the details of his death, but I will share what I learned from the situation. 

Tomorrow is not guaranteed – don’t wait for the perfect situation or circumstance to do something. My patient was probably about three years into his retirement and he spent the last year of his life in and out of doctors’ offices. I have heard many people say, “When I retire, I will…” or, “When I am a certain age, I will….” I have said, “When I get married, I will….” But that time is not guaranteed. 

I am sure my patient did not envision that he would get sick two years into retirement and I can guarantee he did not plan to spend the last year of his life seeing me in the oncologist’s office regularly. I am not saying be reckless and just “YOLO” all over the place! But I think you need to be wise and live for today, because tomorrow is just not guaranteed.

If I am going to be 100% real with you, there are things that I have not done because I was in relationships and figured I would wait till we got married or till the timing was “right.” But what really constitutes the “perfect” or “right” timing? 

I think this concept of living for today was also brought up after the death of Kobe and his daughter. That was such an unexpected tragedy. Yes, Kobe had accomplished so much in the life he had lived, but I am sure we all expected him to do so much more with the time we THOUGHT he had left. But God had different plans and who are we to question that? There are many things about God and His plans that I do not understand, and I don’t think I will ever understand, which I am learning to be okay with. 

What these two situations have really taught me is to be thankful for today; to appreciate the things I have and the people in my life today; to pray about everything; and lastly, to live my best life today. I want to encourage you to not wait for the “perfect” time because that is not guaranteed. You want to take that international trip – save for it and take it. Don’t wait for him or her or the perfect job or the perfect salary; go now! Who is to say that you will even be here in a month? You want that house, sis? Buy it! You have always wanted that coupe – buy it! Of course, be wise about these things. But understand that the only thing we have is today, not tomorrow. 

Till next time.

Love always, 

Shayo 

PS: I love and pray everyone is being safe and washing their hands more often with this Coronavirus that is upon us. 

Letter to My Younger Self

Dear Shayo, 

Listen up, young lady, your life is going to be great, but it will also throw you some curve balls and you have to be ready. Here are a few things I want you to remember – especially during those hard times – because girlfriend, the curve balls are coming. 

You are amazing! 

You are beautiful. 

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. 

You are FIONE, girl!! Don’t let anyone fat shame you, EVER! Try to learn healthy habits early on. 

Your dark skin is beautiful, and your nappy curls are beautiful!

You can do anything you set your mind to through Christ who gives you strength. 

You are enough. 

You are unique and that makes you special. Embrace and love your differences. 

You have a beautiful heart and soul and don’t let anyone change that about you. 

Do not let anyone define you or make you feel less than. 

You have to love yourself more than anyone can love you. The way you love yourself teaches others how to love you. If you don’t show yourself enough love, neither will they. 

Finding love will not make you whole or complete. You are already both. 

Love hard! Love is beautiful and kind. Love does not hurt; people hurt. 

Do not make marriage the goal; happiness in everything you do should be a goal instead. 

Let people who want to leave, leave. Don’t try to convince anyone how great and amazing you are. 

You are not defined by your mistakes. 

Do not give up just because it is hard. If you fail, get up; try, try and try again. 

Make God a priority. Learn to pray now and make it a habit – it’s not just for when things get tough. 

Be nicer to your siblings and try not to give your parents a heart attack by being the “problem child.” 

Pay a little bit more attention in school. 

Learn to save and invest your money wisely. 

It is not your duty to tell everyone what they are doing wrong. 

Talk less, listen more. Be slow to anger. Be slow to react. 

Cherish friendships and do better about keeping in touch. 

Learn patience now because you are going to need a lot of it. 

Live for today. Enjoy your current season. 

You will do great things and you will impact so many people’s lives. 

There is a reason for everything. Try to learn one lesson from each experience. Have no regrets. 

It is okay to cry, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Embrace being an emotionally aware person. Some people will envy that. 

Do not compare your life or path with anyone else’s. God has you on your own unique journey. 

Believe the nice things people say about you. Listen to the bad things but don’t take them to heart. 

Be kind to yourself. 

Learn to stand up for yourself politely. 

You are so loved. 

Never forget these things! You will need them. 

Love always, 

Older and wiser Shayo 

At age 32, I am falling more and more in love with myself. I wish I had loved myself more a few years ago but, like I said: No regrets. I am just happy that I am finally discovering this kind of love. What are some things you would tell your younger self? 

From Basic To Elevated

This week, it’s another fashion post. I was so excited to do this post, first off, but after I saw the pictures, I was blown away. Thank you to my friend, Brittany, for taking my pictures and, of course, being my hype (wo)man! 

So, this month’s fashion post is about having versatility with outfits and how to transition one outfit from a casual look to a more elevated look.  No need for fluff, let’s get straight into the fun part: the outfits. 

Look # 1: Overalls

I don’t know about you all, but I LOVED wearing overalls in middle school and high school, so when they came back around, I was all for them.  For the causal outfit, I wore my all-white Converse, and then to elevate the look a bit, I changed into these clear pumps from Zara. 

Look # 2: Ankara Dress

I got this dress made in Nigeria about two years ago. I love my Nigerian culture, especially our clothing. If you are not familiar with Ankara, it is basically wax-printed material that we (Africans) use to make a variety of things such as clothes and accessories. The prints are typically made with vibrant colors and various designs. So, for this look, the more casual one, I work some Sam Edelman flats, and then I elevated the look with these fiery red heels. 

Look # 3: Yellow Skirt

This outfit is definitely all me – I adore colors and anything with flowers. I started off this look real casual again with my Converse, and then elevated it with some nude pumps. 

Having this kind of versatility comes in handy on busy days when you are running between events like brunch, a baby shower, doing errands, or literally anywhere else, and you want to make sure you are always dressed appropriately and comfortably. It’s especially great for those days when you are leaving work and heading to an event or meeting friends (or a beau!) for happy hour. By changing one accessory, you can see how different these outfits look. 

I hope these looks give you some inspiration for how to “elevate” your look from causal to dressy by just changing your shoes. In what ways do you like to change up your look? Am I the only one who tries to wear one outfit for multiple events in the same day?

‘Till next time. 

Love always, 

Shayo

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

So, I really thought I would have this fabulous blog post written about self-love and all that good stuff, being that it’s Valentine’s Day and all, but nope! I have nothing for you. 

Why? My body is telling me to rest, and look, I am going to listen to my body. I have had an extremely busy week at work and your girl has been getting up at 4:30am Monday through Friday to make a 5am workout class to achieve this summer fine goal (y’all thought I was playing, huh?). I am actually enjoying the workouts – I never thought I would say that. It also helps that I have two accountability partners, Whitley and Khe! Thanks, girls! You can probably imagine that by 7 or 8pm, I am exhausted. 

But back to self-love and Valentine’s Day. I hope that today is a day full of so much love, regardless of your relationship status. I hope that you show the people around you how much they mean to you. I really love Valentine’s Day, even as a single girl! I am such a hopeless romantic, so I love the extra gushiness that flows on this day! 

If you are boo’d up, go out of your way to make your lover feel extra special today! If you are single, show someone love – we all need it. You could buy your coworkers coffee or send a sweet text to your friend or do something nice for your parents, kids or siblings. Do something in love today. 

Also, hang out with your other single friends and have fun! I plan on getting together with some of my loves this weekend and going for lunch and a movie date. We will be seeing The Photographer…I am super excited. 

Regardless of how you choose to spend today, I hope you feel loved, because you are! 

‘Till next time.

Love always,

Shayo
