I cannot believe this never posted. I’m pretty sure I prepped this blog post to appear the day I returned from Akron! Shame. Shame. Shame. So, Akron. The city is very different from Miami. Obviously. I think most cities are very different from Miami. I can’t say there was anything in particular that I wanted to see/ do in Akron, Ohio except to hug my bufu, Chanti. Its been about a year since she moved there for work. She is a champ, and I’m so proud of her professional accomplishments. She honestly is such an inspiration to me. She makes me want to do something. It is no secret that i struggle with sloth. If I could do nothing professionally, I probably would. It’s sad but oh so true. Luckily I have her and few other great people in my life that inspire me to do more. So- before this gets long and really loving- I love Chanti. With my whole heart. Being with her the weekend was a true delight. It was so fun and relaxing. I’m blessed to have such a beautiful friendship. Its just loving and easy. Dale! We ate ice cream, made videos, laughed (Chanti and her Mom, Silva are HILARIOUS), ate (a lot), squeezed in some DIY and I got to meet her new friends. They were all so nice and I was definitely grateful she had found such wonderful people to share life with! It was a great weekend! Check out some pics: *Photos taken by Chanti, Donna and myself.
