#FBF – A Look Back

It’s officially the last Friday of the year guys and honestly, I can’t help being just a little nostalgic.

This has been one of the most amazing years ever. I have had some of the greatest opportunities of a lifetime, personally and professionally and especially so with the blog.

Looking back at my memories from this year, I was really having trouble deciding what I wanted to share with you all because there were just too many awesome moments to choose from. So while I sit here flipping through more of these moments, here are just some of my favorites.

Getting Rooted

It is often said that a tree without roots, does not grow and so is the same for a people who do not know – correction – do not accept and understand their history… and in turn, themselves.

Therefore when it was first announced that there would a Smithsonian Museum dedicated to African American history and culture I was beyond excited. I was even more ecstatic when then President Obama finally declared the museum open this past September. Hence it should come as no surprise that the hubby and I made our way back to the Capitol to partake in this piece of history.
