HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
Christmas and Summer are my two favorite times of the year! I hope that all had a wonderful holiday season, and for this new year my wish for you is Peace, and my suggestion for absolute peace is Prayer.
O.K with that being said, I want to share my Christmas vacation with you! As you may have guessed, I visited my old stomping ground, Brooklyn NY, and as always Brooklyn did not disappoint, we had a great holiday!
It’s amazing the way being surrounded by family, good Caribbean food and friends can quickly alter your plans (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse). My boys who were reluctant to make the trip, were asking to say an extra day, so we stayed an extra day.
We visited our old church and stepped right into the beat just as if we had not left. I loaded up on my Caribbean foods (oxtails, callaloo, rice and peas, fried fish, curry goat, sweet potatoes, black cake and sorrel, yes lots of sorrel!)
Because I had to pack for my family, I had to limit the amount of outfits I could carry for myself, so I accessorized with scarves and headbands and kept it basic with long sleeve t-shirts and jeans.
All in all Christmas in Brooklyn was all I hoped it would be and more, and we can’t wait to go back this Spring break and Summer (God’s willing).
In my next post you will experience my New York City adventure!
