In July 2014, what was meant to be just another Summer Holiday in Atlanta, suddenly became my return to the city I spent (& enjoyed) in my early 20’s. This time around, I was a wife and mother to 2 girls; one with a life disrupting and threatening illness…sickle cell. It would be another 18 months before my husband’s job could transition him back to the States. I couldn’t find a therapist position to accommodate my mom-life. Life was TOUGH!!!
A year later, I started hosting little jewelry gatherings like I’d done in South Africa to make some little change for myself and engage with others. It was just a little side hustle...
In July 2021 (7 years later), I have a well-published jewelry brand that has survived & is still surviving many ups & downs BUT it’s mine!!! My beautiful child who frequented the hospitals is just living her best life as a gymnast and dancer, my older princess has graced The Nutcracker stage and is currently competing in the Junior Olympics, my husband is home more than he’s ever been AND I’ve been selected to be amongst Atlanta’s 2021 @bestselfatlanta Over 40 & Fabulous! Please VOTE for me to be in the Top 10 (link in bio)
Thank you all for the love and support through this journey. There’s no way I could have made it this far without many of you. Believe me when I say, I’m truly blessed!
It’s time to start living!
