Family trip to D.C., Arlington and Six Flags

We love to travel and have little outings. so
I decided since AutumnJones is where I came up with Autumn's name why not blog about her and our mommy and me outings. This was a good trip. We stayed in Arlington right across the bridge. We had a really good experience. We even hung out with my cousin who is stationed in the military not far from Six Flags. We went to the state capitol (We had no interest to see the white house..Shade but whatever) Here are some shots of Autumn along with he cousins Chloe and Colbi. BTW, they weren't happy the whole trip. They complained so much about having to walk everywhere. LOL, it was funny to me. (I wonder how they're going to feel when we take our family trip to New York next year.) Here are just a few pictures. As you notice we love grey sweat pants around here. lol 

Walked all over the Arlington National Cemetery to find a couple family members.

Police officer who shot and killed Texas teen is fired

I really try to NOT post these topics because there is a fire in me that boils so bad that I could say some unimaginable things. I will stated that i believe the officer should be fired! This was very unnecessary and and though Jordan’s death has been ruled a homicide it  does not mean that criminal charges will be filed.. This was a child! A human, no reason. No reason...
Read the Edwards family’s full statement below:
We would first like to thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts, prayers, and condolences as we mourn the tremendous loss our family and community has suffered. We know that so many of you share in our loss. At this time, we ask that you please be respectful of our family, and allow us the opportunity and space to grieve. This entire ordeal has been inescapable.
Jordan was a loving child, with a humble and sharing spirit. The bond that he shared with his family, particularly his siblings, was indescribable. Not only have Jordan’s brothers lost their best friend; they witnessed firsthand his violent, senseless murder. Their young lives will forever be altered. No one, let alone young children, should witness such horrific, unexplainable violence. While our family attempts to cope with our loss, we ask that at this time the community please refrain from protests and marches in Jordan’s and our family’s name, as we prepare for his funeral. We do not support nor do we condone any violence or threats made against the Balch Springs Police Department or any other law enforcement agencies.
What we desire, only second to having our beloved Jordan back, is JUSTICE FOR JORDAN.
With All of Our Love,
The Edwards Family

Intentional: Faith, Family & Freedom at 35!

This year I turned 35. Well, actually today I turned 35. I must say, so far the day has been very relaxing. I don't do much for my birthday anyway. However, I decided to pay it forward to some of the women in my life who have inspired me to be my best self. I decided to create a workbook. Initially, I started working on it and then I said to myself, "How are you going to write self-care workbook? You are not in a place to do so." But after careful review I realized that sometimes God doesn't call the qualified and that I was also very well qualified to speak about what I did. It's published and it's available for any one to purchase viz amazon and any other online retailers. 

As I sit here and think about my life leading up to today I am so grateful. I especially since i have women in my life who have been everything to me that words can not describe. I feel so free, so alive and It's because of the love people show me even when they don't even know that I need it the most. 

Before I get emotional, this workbook is is about finding your happiness and freedom in spite of the circumstances.  If you are interested in purchasing it, it is available via online retailers, Amazon and so on. 

Be blessed~
