My favorite favorite favorite thing about Eskias is that he honors and protects our unique, one-of-a-kind love, while also respecting and celebrating everyone else's love too, even when it looks different than ours. ♥️💛💚💜💙 I love your heart AND your face @eskias_ ! Thank you for being the Marvin Gaye to my Tammi Terrell in karaoke and in life. 😘

#LoveWins

"Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality." - Romans 12

This verse exemplifies my mother and her husband, Pastor Mike. They are a constant reminder to me about the kind of person I strive to be. Happy Birthday to you two lovebirds with birthdays following each other! (Mike on the 16th, mom on the 17th). As an extra bonus, we took a picture at church today as proof we went, per your request.

We love you!!

After I met Eskias, but before I actually went on a date with him... I googled him. 🙈

One of the first things that popped up was his father, Jim "Big Mac" McDaniels - the 7 foot man who led his team to the Final Four and went on to have a great professional basketball career. A few dates later, when he told me his dad used to play for the Lakers, I had to feign ignorance so I wouldn't look crazy. :) Leading up to our wedding "Big Mac" called often and prayed with me, then prayed for us and was such an encouragement to both of us. He told me sweet stories about @ski702, and neither of us realized our time with​ him was winding down.
For the past few days, here in Kentucky, we have heard story after story about the legend of Big Mac - stories on basketball, his faith and his generosity. I am grateful for the man that helped mold the man that is my husband and while we mourn the loss, we know he is finally home.
Rest in Peace Big Mac!
We love you!

Sitting in LA traffic, fuming about a heated conversation I had about immigration with a relative, and something told me to look up. I had to pull over. Don't let people tell you otherwise; more beautiful than our palm trees is our heart for our people.

No better place to be a dreamer of any kind than in LA.
I ♥️ LA.

I am convinced that the reason it takes a few months for wedding photos to come back is because the photographers know that once you get settled into the routine of married life... You'll crave the magic of that special day when your family and friends gathered together to see two become one.
Thankful to be reminded of the day that lets us sprinkle a little magic into even the most routine of days. 💓 (And yes... This is the moment where Ski vowed to attend Howard events. No take backs.)

Ya'll! We each shared our version of our "How We Met" story, but I promise you, my version is closer to the truth. 😂 Check out the link in my bio!
Who knew that this knucklehead I met in high school back when I had braces and even before his locks phase 👀would be my pal in the hey day of crazy DC nights, my confidante, my MC at my wedding, and become a friend that feels more like a (loud) brother?
And who knew that he would meet one of the most inspirational, stunning and gracious women I have ever met and be smart enough to marry her and build a family with her?
I kinda knew. :) @aubreygibsonjr has always been destined for greatness in school, his career, his marriage, and now as he prepares for the most important role of his life, father, I can't wait!
Me and @ski702 were so glad we could make it to Chicago to celebrate you and @officiallykourtney and we can't wait for this next chapter. We love baby Kai and her parents too! 😘 (p.s. I don't know why @ski702 has that sign pointed at me. Don't believe that.)

(Swipe left) If you have ever wanted to have two weddings, marry an Ethiopian. 😂

Also, try and find one with a beautiful momma who will treat you like her own daughter and be your bonus mom!

I wonder... if a certain Black American lady who just married her East African American beau was thinking what I was thinking when I married mine... "We've only just begun; who knows what incredible adventures lie ahead?"
