Good February 1st to ya!

Good February 1st to ya! Every time this time of year comes around, I start thinking about my birthday. Or continue the thought. The month change always makes it's closeness more apparent. My birthday is on the 14th. Yes, Valentine's Day. Only God know why, and that's a whole different issue, which I probably won't be blogging about. Hahahaha.......

This year, I 'm turning 22. Hmmmm......let me think back a little..........As a kid, every birthday was exciting for me. Even if I didn't have a party (which usually was the case) my mom still got cake and made sure the living room was decorated, and got the birthday girl at least one present. And pictures are a must. Here are some from my 8th, 9th, and 11th birthdays respectively.

She still does that for all of our birthdays, even if it means sending the birthday girl (me) to the store to get the required decorating items when she (the birthday girl) doesn't feel like it and insists that it isn't necessary. Oh, mommy :)

Thinking about it, I was glad to turn 19; I was almost out of the teens. I was excited to turn 20; I had finally left behind that wretched suffix '-teen' from my age. I was thrilled to turn 21; I was 'technically' an adult. But 22? That's something altogether different to me. It just sounds old! Lol....I'll get over it though. And get used to being 22. I guess. Hahahahaha.......


I'm involved in the planning of an event called "Help for Haiti" on February 20. The event will be at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I invite all who are in the area to come. It will prove to be a great event with musical performances, word
s from Haitians and people who have been to Haiti recently, a great dinner, and so on. 100 percent of the proceeds are going to the Red Cross for relief in Haiti. Here's the flyer. If you look up 'Help for Haiti' ion Facebook, you should be able to find it. But if you have any questions about it, let me know.

That's all for now. Have a great day!


  1. A Valentine's Day baby! Aww, you're truly a child born of love. Any current and future beaus of yours must be sure to celebrate both events as distinct from one another. 22 is plenty young still, coming from someone who's almost 9 whole years older!

    I hope the benefit is a huge success - great initiative on your part and on the part of the other organizers!

  2. Thanks Good Naija Girl! I am really praying that the event goes well. As for all the stuff about my birthday and Valentine's Day.............yeeeaaahhh...! :)

  3. I'm sure you'll get used to being 22. Just that by that time, 23 will be around the corner. hahahaha. The days are so flying by!

    Hope the dinner goes well. It'll really be a big help to Haiti. Well done.

  4. Thanks for stopping by naija mom abroad! The years really do seem to be flying, but God dey. Lol. Thanks for your well wishes on the Haiti dinner.
