My June Edition of Currently. Come find out what's going on in my life!



Greenleaf. Yessssssssss I am really into this show!!! I’m surprised because honestly I hate most of the other shows ( the Tyler Perry ones let me be clear). But I LOVE this one. And did you see that Queen Sugar is coming? I loved the book, it was awesome. I’m eager to see how they made a series out of the book.




This arrives TODAY! I can’t wait to read it! I’ve seen it floating around the internets for some time, but when I got that settlement money from Barnes and Noble and Apple…I ordered it. I can’t wait to read it


To silence. I’ve  been an early riser for the last year or so around here because I can get things done before I have to start my day job. The other day I woke up at 5. About 30 minutes earlier than usual. I had peace and quiet for almost 2 hours. I need silence in my life when I have no responsibilities but to drink a cup of coffee and meditate..and listen to the silence.



i love watermelon in the summer!

This Watermelon Cucumber Feta Salad from Unlikely Martha. I love Feta. I love cucumbers. I LOVE watermelon. Yasssss folks. Yaaassss.


OFF. The Devil is busy. I’ll ask for prayers because you can never have enough. Thanks in advance.

The rest of the year. July starts tomorrow. That means that the year is over halfway over. I’m planning how I want to spend the rest of my year. I admit I didn’t follow through with my plans from earlier this year. I’ve learned that in order to succeed, I not only have to plan, I have to put the processes in place for me to succeed. For instance: just saying I’m going to eat healthy and lose weight isn’t enough. I need to plan AHEAD of time what I’m going to eat everyday. I need to have those meals and snack prepped and ready to eat. I need to carve out time in my schedule to prep. I Need to PLAN and carve out the time to exercise . Have my clothes, shoes, sports bra, headphones and water bottle laid out when my alarm goes off or when I get off of work.  Because just writing it down won’t work for me. And I learned this the hard way.


Excited, nervous, overwhelmed, frustrated, happy, sad…everything. I swear, this past month has been a roller coaster ride! But I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring.


So that’s what’s been going on in my life. What’s going on in yours?

I need a break this evening. Been hearing so much about Greenleaf. Soon as I hit send on this comment will search for it on On Demand.

I am excited about getting into that book. I have my highlighter, hoping its the kick I need to get ALL of the things done in the last half of the year.

That salad is everything.

I still haven't caught up on green leaf. I might do that today! Currently I am learning and growing in photography. Trying to read and learn about how to brand myself and a little PR. This summer is the summer for learning and growth. I have grown so much back into Kita....I lost myself so much while being married that I am such a different person these days. it's shocking to even me lol

YESSSS to Greenleaf!! I actually downloaded the OWN app just to watch it. The storyline isn't new but it's GOOD! I feel like I "know" you even though I don't KNOW you so I'll say your energy and positive outlook on things will help you get through whatever this funk is the Devil thought he was bringing you! Prayers up! I'm planning 2017 now, somethings really gotta change and some already are!
