Friday Five: Celebrate Juneteenth

E69E6C8C-FE02-48C9-9B30-10EAA1E1DDBF_4_5005_cHi friends!  It has been a quiet week around here, & I’m not mad about it.  I’ve been doing lots of early morning work in my flower bed; it gets too hot so early, but once I finish I’ll show the before & after pictures.

Let’s get to my favs from the week,  shall we?

One: Podcast 

Okay, as part of my continued education I’ve been listening to the podcast 1619.  It is six episodes, & each episode delves into different parts of systemic racism – everything from Capitalism to music.  It is truly fascinating. IMG_2279

Two: Books 

This week we were encouraged to purchase two books by Black writers. 3F070136-3961-4660-9BAF-339E2C0A62C4

This week I bought Get A Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams.  All three books were recommended by Ashley Spivey, whom you should absolutely follow on IG. FDDFD252-52AE-4E02-BD11-27E2A7CEE413_1_201_a

Three: Ring 

I discovered a new jewelry shop from @WhatKateFinds.  Soko is sustainable, woman owned, & Black owned.  This new ring is on its way to me & I am so excited! C817F686-C69F-4E09-A103-41248886C94C

Four: Another Podcast

I’ve written before about my affinity for the Bad on Paper podcast.  Well, one of the hosts, Becca & her friend Rachael, wrote, directed, & produced a new podcast – RomCom Pods!  It’s basically a Hallmark movie in podcast form & I love it!  Go support them now! IMG_2252

Five: New (to me) Music

As usual, I’m late to the party, but I have recently discovered new music – MisterWives.  I’m currently listening to the Our Own House album on repeat, yes it is from 2015.  Like I said – new to me. IMG_2278

A reminder – today is Juneteenth, which celebrates the end of slavery.  I follow Anna Groves on IG (@annamaegroves) & she posted great info on Juneteenth. IMG_2281IMG_2282IMG_2283IMG_2284

I hope y’all have a great weekend.

Kiss Hug,
