During my bday vacay last week, I visited a home that is among my fondest memories:

my beloved soon-to-be (in 2½ weeks) Birthday Girl aunt’s estate!

Not only am I a fan, but apparently and rightfully so, her community also is as well because both

in The Baltimore Sun☼ 

The highlight of my stay was when I sat in my Tita Fe‘s gourmet kitchen with Mami Aya, her siblings and their spouses ~ during which my MD aunts and uncles, who included

  • Tita FeTito Rudy (my mom’s oldest sister and her husband)
  • Tito RobertTita Yollie (my mom’s youngest brother & his wife)

each endorsed me for my PhD ~ providing their sound advice that I’ll take with me as I progress toward my doctoral dissertation defense.

🎊Birthday🎉 & 🍎Back-to-School🍏!!!

Last week (or shall I say, two weeks before then to include three full weeks), I rang in my BiG 3-3 and prepared to teach in my hometown this fall ~ after over five years of teaching in South Texas. Therefore, I had to get a minor makeover!

First, Evie‘s mom Maggie cut and curled my hair (as seen with A&A).

Then Dee and I celebrated together, and she added to my wardrobe👗!

Dee & Me

Don’t Dee & I look hot in our maxi dresses?

On my actual Bday, we curled our hair!

Speaking of Dee, don’t she, Lisa and I all look fabulous as the August Birthday Baby Beauties💁?

Love ’em like Sisters!

& of course, now that I’m exactly half my mom‘s age (she was my age when she gave birth to me), here’s an indicator of how I may look like when I’m double my age!

Good timing that Back-to-School was yesterday, due to my beauty gifts from Nanay & Sis!
