Bar Roma

If there is one thing I love about New York City’s restaurant industry, is its charm. The restaurants might be tiny, but they are full of character. It’s something I’m always captivated by each time I eat in the city. And Bar Roma on the Upper East Side is no exception. When Channing sent an email… Read More

Gone Fishing

They say a bad day fishing is better than a good day working. Saturday, I set out to see if there was any truth in the saying. It was my first time going fishing. I chose it as my annual birthday trip so that I could force myself out of my comfort zone. I decided… Read More

Flying High With My Eagles

My 28th birthday was on the sixth. It fell on a Tuesday this year. Thirty minutes before the clock struck 12, I stepped out the shower and immediately searched for the sage Channing gave me days before.

I don’t know about y’all, but I needed this three-day weekend. Bad. I know that goes without saying, but let me explain. Before I got my new job, I worked every. single. holiday. including Thanksgiving and Christmas. Surprisingly, New Year’s Day was the worst. I’m talking ongoing waiting lists all day long. It was so hectic, my body… Read More

An Agreement with God

Six months to one year. That’s the agreement I made with God. That was all the time I was willing to give to my server position. In the mean time, I prayed for patience. That He order my steps. And that He’d make me more receptive to His voice so that I would know when an opportunity was… Read More
