Still Undefeated

RIP to my Plants

Soo at the beginning of Lockdown I decided to try my hand at horticulture-ing. Both my mother and my grandmothers had very green thumbs. My mom kept annuals alive all year long inside and outside our Chicago home.

I’ve Always Known

Photo by imgED I’ve known I was Black since the beginning…but it was nothing I ever shied away from.
